Nostalgia # 33 - Five Years Ago

Five years ago, my Aunt Athelea served as my wife's Mom here in the States. She liked Rose and even told my wife to tell my mother-in-law that she adopted Rose. She was still alive when we left going to Korea but we were saddened when she passed away before we came back.
The picture above was taken at her house on December 25th, we paid them a visit. They always have nice gifts for us. Now that she's gone and her husband re-married again, we lost contact with the family. Farewell Aunt Athelea, you will always remembered. May you rest in peace with the Lord.



Deep Down

The kids enjoyed watching the beavers swam at Pittsburgh Zoo the last time we've went there.

Christmas Lights Trip

We drove around to look at some of the Christmas light displays at the neighborhood by the hospital. The big houses there a has some pretty lights.
I bet some of them paid somebody to do their decorations for them.
The kids enjoy the light parade in that rich neighborhood area.
We are planning to go at Oogle Bay to see their Christmas lights display.
Have a merry Christmas everyone!

Adventure Play Tent

Our very good friend Agnes (EJ's godmother), gave the burritos a discovery Kidz's adventure play tent. My husband assembled it in their bedroom and they love it. The first night, the girl burrito wanted to sleep inside it but then she changed her mind afterwards hehehe.
Our dog Champ is scared of it, he freaked out when he saw it and continuously barking whenever he passes the room. Below are the burritos having fun. The Nerf gun was from Uncle Dave. Thanks guys for the presents!

Random Photos - Nostalgia # 32

Photos were taken on our way home from Steubenville Ohio. This is what you will see when you enter Weirton.
It's a veteran memorial park dedicated for the vets that fought for the land of the free and home of the brave.

Hubby was telling me about the time when he wanted to quit the service during his first couple of weeks of attending the boot camp. He's glad that God sent someone to talked him out of quitting. He said that the military molded him to become a better a man that he is now.

Nostalgia # 31 - Turtle Ship

This was the token that my last command n Korea had given me. It is a replica of a turtle ship.

Father & Son's happy Moments

 It is very obvious that our two burritos love their Daddy so much.  They always ask him to play with them all of the time.
EJ look up for his Dad for all times.  When hubby is in school, EJ look forward of seeing him at home.  Sometimes he would cry  because he misses his dad.
I always thank my husband for being such a great and loving father to our burritos!

First Steps

We are thinking of changing the doctor for the kids. The one that they have is near to our home but when you go there, you won't feel the warmth presence of the crew. For them, it is just like a business and most of the times the doctor is not in. We want someone that would treat our kids like human beings, I mean they do but.. I don't know how to describe it but you might know what I mean.

Bee Happy

Here's to cheer up your Wednesday! Our daughter was always a happy camper when she was a baby. She seldom cry unless she is not feeling well, hungry, or has a soiled diaper. Is it just me or some of the parents wishes that their kids would remain babies forever? When they are babies, they are care free and worry free.
As they grow up, you have to deal with the "I know everything" attitude hehehe. So far, our kids are growing up in the right direction, I believe. I hope that what me and my wife are doing are the best for them when they grow up. I don't want them to feel like they were neglected or misguided when they were little.

Red, White, and Blue

My wife spotted and took a picture of this rolling shed near the St. Paul's School yesterday when we went to the library. I am not sure what the function of that in the parking area but it sure looks good with red, white, and blue.

Burning Bush


I am not sure if this is a burning bush but it is burning with beauty. This is my sister's plant at her backyard. It's not really a flower but the pink leaves makes them gorgeous!

Fun with Leaves

When we celebrate Jen's birthday at my FIl's home, the kids had so much fun playing outside full of leaves.
My kids love Jen and Jim's children. They are fun to play with and they take care of  our children every time they play.
They love burrying themselves under a pile of leaves.
This little burrito  is pretending that he is hidden lol.
Okay, it's time for  leaves throw action.  One. two.. three.. Awesome!
Thanks for dropping by folks, this is chubskulit, posting  in behalf of my  hubs who is very busy  reviewing for his final tests in school.

Sky Shots

Here are two random sy shots that were taken last weekend on our way to visit my Dad. We were caught by the stop light when our son saw these birds on the electric wire. He wanted mommy to take pictures of it, so here it is.
One way of entertaining the kids when driving or traveling is to give them something to do. We always encourage them to count cars according to color every time we go somewhere. They are not only entertained but they are also exercising their counting skills and awareness of everything while we are on the road.

Sunset

My wife took these shots while we were driving going to my Dad's house on day. Glad that Rose loves taking photos, we always have something to post and share to our readers.

Sweethearts

This chair is now officially owned by Champ, our jack russel terrier dog. I am sure that he misses his girlfriend Chelsea. We gave Chelsea for adoption to one of the Pinays that we knew here in the area. She did not have a daughter so she treats Chelsea like one lol.

Wine Rack

A shadow from the corner of our wine rack.  Hope you guys are having a  nice Saturday, it's too cold from out end with a little bit of snow.

White Christmas Tree

My Dad has been using  this small Christmas tree for ages.  so when we had our new tree, we decided to bring our white tree  on his house.
My daughter and wife decorated it yesterday.
It looks good at his house as it brings  bright light to the living room.
My daughter was so proud of the job they did hehehe.

Penny for your Thought

My FIL gave these collection to my husband. They are pennies from way back then. It isn't complete though but it's worth keeping as it is handed down to him. He can keep this and give it to EJ when he's old enough to keep things.
Thanks for dropping by!

Set of Hair Clippers

During my last tour of duty in Korea, I attended t school for two weeks in Japan as part of the requirement of my new job assignment then. Before I left, I bought a set of hair clippers that I could use. I started cutting my own hair with the help of my wife. The price of the hair clipper set was very affordable and it saves us money. I also cut my son's hair so it really is a money saver that I bought it.

Maple Tree

I took this shot a couple of days ago when we visited Dad. His neighbor's Japanese maple tree look great due to the sunlight hitting the leaves. Isn't it Gorgeous?

Blue Fish


Taken at PPG Aquarium. I couldn't remember the scientific name of this small fish but they are beautiful. Based from my assessment, the kids enjoyed the water animals more than the land animals.

Fine Lining

This was taken a couple of days ago when I saw this fine lining of cloud on a dark blue sky. Almost all the trees have lost their leaves already and the surrounding is starting to look sad. That's one thing I don't like about the coming of winter. It's taking away the beauty of nature.

Cactus, Rocks, and a.....

Isn't he has a nice color combination?I like how they put that big cactus and three rocks in his glass box.
