Yesterday was a special and big day for me spiritual-wise. Thanks to my mommy who never give up sending me to Sunday school and tirelessly bringing me to all church activities in relation with my First Communion activities. Took me two years total in order for me to be qualified to achieve this greatest milestone that happened yesterday.
Mommy congratulated me after receiving my First Holy Communion at St. Batholomew Catholic church on May 20,2017. Thanks to her because if it wasn’t for her perseverance and encouragement , I would have not completed this. Now that I am done with this, we can take it easy and relax. Hopefully, when we move out in the country we can find a Catholic church to go to so I can continue to receive my communion.
Anyway, here’s me receiving the Eucharist from the priest, it was fulfilling and this Eucharist will serve as food for my soul.

This is my 9th birthday cake. I am so into dinosaurs and so I thought it would be great to have a dinosaur on my birthday. Although it came two days later after my birthday, yet it made me happy. Dada bought it for me. Mommy has been busy working and I am glad dada heard me and bought me this one.
It is pink which is not really my favorite color but I have no complain. It is too pretty to be a cake. Two wishes on my birthday were granted, to go on skating and a dinosaur cake. I could not ask for more! I am very happy.
I thank God for another year added to my life. I can’t believe I turn 9 today, cheers to that! Since I received a lot of toys in Christmas, I did not ask much from mommy and dada. This time I just wished to be able to go in a skating rink and experience it myself.
So, yesterday, my entire family went to the Silver Wheel Skating rink and tried skating for the first time. At first me and my sister were holding on to the side rail for a couple minutes. After I got used to the wheels, I braved on skating around the rink for a few times and then to the center of the rink as minutes went by. I did enjoy it very much, got very sweaty and skate for over an hour.
If it wasn’t because of my sister whining and rushing us to go home, I could have enjoyed more of my stay there. Dada said that he will drive me again to the rink so I can skate some more, I don’t know when that is but I trust his words he will bring me back to the skating rink.
Things that my mommy does for me and my sister may not be appreciated sometimes but on Mother’s Day, I made sure I let her know that I am thankful for everything she does for us because I know she loves me and my sister so much despite the fact that she nags at me a lot.
I think I made her proud and happy when I handed this note I made in school one afternoon in celebration for Mother’s Day. This is not fancy but I wrote the best I could and tried to think hard the best things possible she does everyday.
This note is now hanging in our living room light which she can see everyday and read it to remind her that as her daughter, I am lucky to have her for she truly cares for us and thinks only for our own good.
Today, I officially turns 8 years old. And today, is the day I bid goodbye to cakes. I told mommy, I don’t want cakes on my birthdays anymore. I just want toys and chocolate chip cookies. Yes, I got a 20-inch bike and a pink shotgun toy from mommy and dada. Mommy have not baked me chocolate cookies though, she owe me a dozen and I am waiting for it.
Dada bought my bike at Walmart days before my birthday while I was at school one afternoon. He assembled it and just gave it to me on my natal day all ready to go.
We did not do much fun today. I asked dada if we could go to Legoland but he hated that idea. Aside from the expensive entrance, that place is so noisy and a torture for him. Not to mention, it’s an hour long drive from home. So we canceled that instead he brought us to Cabela’s. It’s an outdoor outfitter store that’s huge and tons of stuff to look at and roam around. What is nice about this place is that they got animals displayed in some corners of their store that we can only see in African Savannah. That is where I also got my pink shotgun toy that I chose myself shown below.
We spent a good 3-4 hours at Cabela’s and for me it wasn’t enough fun. I hope dada will bring us to another place next weekend and enjoy some more. We went to a shooting game area of the store, I had fun and mommy and dada thought I shot well.
…some serious shooting going on here… so focused and yes, it was a serious business to hit the target.
December 4, 2015 was a Pajama Party night we attended with my sister and mommy. Coming there for the first couple of minutes I thought it was boring. Just foods, noise from adults’ loud talking and kids that are new that I don’t know. Mommy asked me to help decorate their Christmas tree but I refused.
Until they started giving us craft activities, that is when I started enjoying my time at the party. Then in the middle of the party, Santa suddenly appeared by the door. Everyone was overwhelmed with joy and fascination because who would have thought that he would be at the party?
It was a fun night for us all, indeed! We had our pictures taken with Santa, we also had a story time with him and most of all we got to tell Santa what we wanted for Christmas and of course a little chit chat with him before he went away.
At the end of the party, the kids had some game and the only game I enjoyed and loved doing the most was the “twister”. I was very good at it according to one girl and I won 4 times in a row until mommy asked me it was time to go home. Nobody beat me playing twister and I am proud of myself for that!
As usual, we all had fun trick or treating last night in celebration of Halloween 2015. We only went for a trick or treating in the neighborhood because EV cityhall cancelled their carnival the other night due to stormy and rainy weather. I was so excited for it and was really looking forward to attend the carnival because my friend Ariana was gonna be in there and we would ride the firetruck and play in the bounce house. That was unfortunate it got cancelled.
Anyway, here are a few photos of last night’s event. I loved the Halloween decorations some homeowners did to their yard. I collected lots of candies and chocolates too. The weather was kinda chilly but dry. Yet, I am still thankful for the rain has stopped just in time for Halloween eve that allowed us to walk in the neighborhood for treats.
My costume for this year is still a witch, same as last year. Mommy’s friend asked her why I liked to be a witch than a Princess, well, I guess I just love being a witch?

Here’s a few snaps of us during our egg hunting yesterday. Don’t we look pretty in our Easter dresses? We went to South Park Baptist church for egg hunting the second time around. The place has a huge yard suitable to accommodate many children for picking eggs. There were actually two places that offered egg hunting, the Edgecliff Village cityhall and the Baptist church but we chose the latter anyway for the EV cityhall was too early to be going.
It’s just a few blocks away from our home so going there is easy and don’t cost us so much gas. It was a perfect day to be outdoors, enjoyed the bounce house and picked as many eggs as we could. We gathered so many with candies inside it and ate candies to our hearts’ content.
Mommy is happy knowing that we had a lot of fun and also, we now have a place to go every year for egg hunting. We won’t be sad anymore nor missing egg hunting! Unlike the earlier years, mommy didn’t know where else to go so she had to just spread the artificial eggs in our backyard, did the egg hunting alone. That has changed now obviously!
I am now 7 years old, I claim that to the world! Here are a few snaps of me and my sister on my special day. There were just the three of us because dada had to work the whole day. It was the first time he was absent on my birthday. But it’s okay. He works hard to bring food to the table and I understand that.
Mommy took the effort to make my birthday a special one even though we celebrated it the usual way, blowing of candles, slicing of cake and opening my birthday presents. I got a whole big box of painting kit from tita Claire, Kaegan’s mommy. I really love it, it was so nice of her to give me the things I really love. Mommy and I appreciate her thoughtfulness so much!
Photos from Chuck E. Cheese’s will follow soon. Keep coming back folks!
Mommy has compiled a few photos or snapshots of me from birth until yesterday in celebration of my 7th birthday today. Yes, today at 6:45 in the evening I officially turned 7 years old.
Thanks to mommy who carried me for 9 months in her womb, endured a labor pain for 13 hours and for trying to push me for almost 4 hours. Celebrate my birthday with me by watching this lovely slideshow my mom had worked for in order to share to you all!
I blew my 7 candles today, opened the gifts and ate the cake. Photos will follow maybe tomorrow. We are gonna have a continuation of my birthday tomorrow at Chuck E. Cheese’s with mommy’s friends and Allison.
