Organizing A Carol Services for Kids

Singing Christmas carols is one of the best ways to get everybody in Yuletide spirits. Your kids and their friends from school or neighborhood can bond over their holiday vacation and maybe raise funds through caroling service. Consult with their school or your church leader about your ideas of organizing a children’s caroling service. Once permitted, you can book a venue and arrange for children and parents to attend. You can create a program to spice up the activity. Ask the pastor or the school’s headmaster to give a speech and prepare some readings from biblical verses to fun stories. And of course, get a good selection of children’s Christmas songs that has traditional, contemporary and poignant mix.

I shared this on Facebook and was amused as to how many of my friends and families liked these photos. So I might as well share these photos to my blogger friends and to update my childrens blog too.

Since its summer, my kids are free and always want to come with me in the the office. At times, I have no more alibis thus no option but to take them along.

These were the photos of Alexa while in the office - opps, outside the office rather!



Uncle C has several pets such as goats ( maybe at least 20 pcs), pigs and fishes in the vicinity of the warehouse. Only Alexa has the nerves to go near these goats. The boys? Nope - afraid as ever!

Why Go for Green Roof Construction?

Nowadays, green roof construction is becoming popular not only among business owners, but also to homeowners who want to be close with nature. As a matter of fact, the reasons listed below prompt these people to embrace a so-called green living.

  • Water conservation. When it is raining cats and dogs, the water is absorbed by the green roofs. In fact, it slows down the flow of excess water down to the drainage system.

  • Cooling effect. The plants you planted on the roof absorbs heat. In this manner, temperature is unlikely to be high.

  • Low maintenance. Green roof is not demanding. As a matter of fact, you can only water the plants when needed.

Overall, green roof is truly an amazing innovation in our age. It offers a myriad of advantages with the inhabitants as the main beneficiaries. If you are into growing indoor plants,  you might want to check Access Hydroponic.

National Arts Month - Ewan for Grade 3 Keller

Our 3rd Grader Kuya Francis performed on February 14  at 2:30 PM with the same song as Kuya Chris.




National Arts Month - Ewan for Grade 2 MichelAngelo

Unfortunately, I was in the wrong place when I took this video. I thought my son would be in the right side, but he was actually on the far left - thus I wasn't able to get him actually in this video. Sorry Son!

Luckily, Dad transferred right away to the left side when he spotted him going in that direction. He took some photos of him.




Before leaving the house, he asked me to take a quick photo of him. Big boy right?

We were all there to witness our little girl's dance. She was so excited and secretive in her actions. She never showed us any steps at home but dance gracefully in the stage. We are so proud of her!

Filipiniana Costume

The kids will be performing end of this week in school.  I bought already the costumes for the boys. I planned to buy for Alexa last weekend but prior to going to Baclaran, I asked a friend for her daughter's Filipiniana costume and luckily she has one! So I just borrowed for a one time event. Its not really practical to buy one.

Today was the rehearsal for our princess, she came home darn tired but very excited. I haven't seen her perform in school yet, so I am also excited to watch her dance! I was out of town or out of the country last time, cant wait to see her!

Shopping at Zalora for School Play

I saw in my boys school diary that they'll having a school play soon. They will be performing "Ewan" song and will be wearing:

  • Plain white shirt
  • Suspender
  • Cap
  • Stripe short
  • Rubber shoes
They already have a relatively new rubber shoes bought last December and some old caps. Luckily, I was given a free coupon codes from Zalora for shopping online.

I was out yesterday afternoon and when I came home, the kids already showed me the newly arrived packaged. 



Shopping online is like guessing the size. You have to make sure it fits you as its very difficult to return it. Since I am not sure yet if size small would fit my boys, so I bought 1 shirt first. Luckily, it fits so I am going to buy the same size again.

I can't believe that my boys would fit a 30 waistline already. Its a little big for them but the boys prefer a loose shorts like hip hop! They've grown so big already.


Thanks Zalora for the awesome coupon codes!

Beyblades

The kids received new bey blades from Uncle C. They were happy playing with it using the plastic box. They used to have a stadium for the bey blades but lost as usual.


Its seldom for these 3 kiddos to play together, happy and without a fight! But still, they love each other like crazy!

Poster Art Set

Daddy came home today  from Divisoria with poster art set for our little princess. Alexa was so happy that she immediately opened and used it. Divisoria is a paradise for shopping. There are lots of goodies at a very affordable prices. Most of these items are imported from China thus at times, the materials are flimsy and does not last for long. But for a poster art set just like this - what else could go wrong? For a little girl, who loves to paint, this is beautiful!


At first, she said not to take a photo of her. But I insisted and pestered her ... in the end she gave in!


After several strokes and a few photos taken in haste, she finally agreed and said - okay take a photo now!

Church Wedding

We went home to Dumaguete to have a short vacation at the same time attend the wedding of Tito Em and Ate Marilyn. The kids were part of the entourage. Francis carried the symbol of faith (Bible), Chris carried the symbols of binding treasure (Coins) and Alexa as one of the flower girls.



Just before the ceremony, the kids posed for a while in their usual grumpy mode. They disliked me taking photos of them. I guess they're grown up already! They used to love them!

The kids wore Barong Tagalog with red undershirt to match the color motif of the wedding.


And here is the flower girl in her usual peace sign. I wonder why this girl always make this sign! In most of her photos, be it formal or informal, she always does that! Somehow its cute too!


The lovely couple in their first dance after the church wedding. They were wed already on civil rights years ago.


And the mommy! Me and hubby were the secondary sponsors. We unfold them with the veil of unity. :)
