A Back Post: Zoe's Moving Up Day

Sorry for the late post... Just want to document here Zoe's 1st Moving Up Day at her school. They were asked to dress up in the 80's theme so we were very excited! I saw this dress from a department store and bought it immediately. It was initially big for Zoe so I had it repaired to fit Zoe perfectly. I also bought for her red Chuck Taylor rubbershoes, a pair of earrings in the shape of long-playing albums plus net gloves to match. The outfit turned out so nice! When we got to the school, they were asked to wear blue togas and a cap. Picture-taking! The program started on time and Zoe enjoyed every minute of it. She received several awards and we were so proud of her. After the recognition rites, they all removed their togas and the girls danced to several 80's songs. Here's the rest of the family giving all their support to the little girl... ...with gifts to match! Congratulations, Zoe!

Pictures Delight!

I must admit that I have not had enough time right now to give attention to this blog. There should have been so much to blog about but so far, time has not been on my side. My birthday and the birthdays of my loved-ones had passed and I’ve not even blogged about any of it. It’s because up to now, my daily schedule still seems super erratic since it’s been more than a month since the nanny has taken a vacation. She was supposed to come back today but with the strong typhoon coming our way tomorrow, I am not so sure it they would be allowed to continue with their trip via ship. Anyway, I just want to add a little thing in this blog to make it more interesting. And what could be more interesting (and simple to add) than pictures! I’ve recently discovered and used a photo effect online and it’s so cool! You can also use their online photo frames to add a zing to your rather-boring pictures. Here are some of my kids’ pictures which I’ve played around with using photo frame templates .
