Send money to your family abroad at XOOM!

I live here in the USA and I have my family who live in the Philippines. I send allowance to my family twice a month. I used western union before but now I found the one that is easy and convenient for me to use. I can send them anytime, any day in the comfort of my home using my computer, or I can use my phone to send money while I am away at home. I don't need to go at the store or in a bank to rush myself and be away home and the transfer fee is only $7.99. This is the very convenient for me to send money to my family in the Philippines and they can pick it up at the most convenience location they have available in the area that accept Xoom and Western Union Payment. Anyway, if you have family in the Philippines and you still looking for a way how you can send them money, then you might like to try XOOM, you will absolutely love it, its very easy to use and I been using XOOM for more than 5 years now and so far I never had problem with it. Give it a try and see! Send money to your family in the Philippines using XOOM now!

Family fun time...

This afternoon, we go out in the backyard and play football as a family. It was nice, that's my first time to play, I see the joy in my kids eyes, they love every single moment of it. We laugh, we giggle, we chase each other. Too bad nobody is taking picture of us, that will be a good remembrance to watch but its okay, maybe next time I will take a video of it. After we play outside, we go inside the house, drink water and have snack then we also play card games Sequence. This is what we do on weekends. Just spending time with my husband and kids makes me happy. I am very fortunate to have such a wonderful family. 

Me and my little bird friend Pearly

She give me a kiss

She loves my kisses too

She's my little friend, she is like a baby

Meet my little friend Pearly - she's about 6 months old. We got her at Paradise Pet Shop in Pueblo. We bought her as a gift for my 6 year old daughter. I spend a lot of time with her than my daughter especially when they are at school. I am stay at home mom so I taking care of her and play with her while I'm at home. She wakes us up in the morning and she makes good morning sound. She knows my voice and everytime she see me she wants to go out in her cage and play with me. She just likes to be in my shoulder and put her head under my neck, I think that's how she show love and say hi to me and she give me kisses too :-) She is such a sweetheart and I'm glad we have her. She is part of our family now together with our two guinea pigs and 3 dogs.

November is here!

Well, here it goes, November is here! Lot of people are busy buying stuff for the Halloween. Then Thanksgiving are coming too, good thing we don't need to make a big deal out of this holiday. But we respect those people that does celebrate it. We have our reason why we don't celebrate holidays like Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentines because of its Pagan origin and I bet some of you guys know why. My family in the Philippines they are doing All Saints and All Souls Day and that's the time when they go to the cemetery and clean my dad and sister's grave yard. Its already a tradition every month of November. Anyway, we did a lot for this month, we help clean the kingdom hall, we spend time with our brothers and sisters and have lunch with them, we watch football games with friends, go out in the ministry and have our family worship once a week and we watch the broadcasting for this month. This week, me and my kids make a Caleb and Sofia cardboard project. It was nice, kids love it and we really enjoy spending time together as a family, we also play sequence and sorry games at night. That's what we do this first week of the month of November. How about you what you did this month? Feel free to share!

October is done!

What.... October is done? How come it went by so fast? Two more months and year 2015 is over and we will say hello to the year 2016. Well, I just hope that winter won't be bad this year. I am not looking forward for winter. I am not a winter person since I was born in a tropical country but I been here in the United States for almost 10 years now and I got used to it but still I miss my tropical country! Month of October seems very nice to me, its all peaceful and happy and the rest of the month too are the same. So for the upcoming more months, I wonder how it would be like? Hope it will be progressing spiritually, calm, peaceful and full of love and happiness. :-)

Got a new tire for our van...

Winter is coming and my husband want to make sure that me and my kids are safe this coming winter. He bought a new tire for our van and it was pretty good. It ain't cheap but it will help us for couple of years. Our old tires still good though, we sold it for $15 each or $50 for the four tires at slv yard sale online and we got it sold right away. They are good tires and they are still good for couple miles. Anyway, this week, we are also planning to get a new tire for our Montero. The tires in our Montero need to replace really bad that's why we didn't go for an off roading this past couple months. We need to wait until next year again maybe on Spring or Summer to do off roading. We like going to the mountain and do rock hounding. So hopefully we can do it again next year. Thanks to my loving husband for being such a caring husband and dad. He always think our safety first before anything else so I am so thankful for that. I am truly blessed.

I been earning money with them for couple years now and when I put them all together I can make more than a $100 or more in a month, it depends on how much time you spend to it and how much surveys you are qualified with. Its not much but it helps to pay bills. This is not just a survey websites, you can also earn money by shopping, you can earn cash back when you shop online at their website. So if you like shopping and taking surveys and even taking free offers, then its the way you can earn more! See for yourself and earn extra cash in the comfort of your home! Enjoy!

Beautiful Pink Flower

Does anyone know what kind of flower is this? I saw this flower at my friends house and she told me about it but I already forgot. This flower is not really popular but I really love the color. Hope we can have this in our garden sometime next year. I really fell in love with this flower. They are smells good too. 

Pork and Chicken Adobo for our friends

My husband and I love to share our Pork and Chicken Adobo to our brother and sisters. This time, we heard that one of our brother was sick and since we promise the other brother to bring him the adobo, so we decided to make another extra to give out for another couple. So I put it in a 3 Tupperware good for 2 people each. Its nice to share and we truly love our elder brothers and sisters. They really enjoy  it and I am so happy that it turn out really good this time. :-)

What a huge tire for a Car!

What a big huge tire for a car! My 6 year old daughter thought that this is the coolest car ever! I guess this kind of car get a lot of attention on that early iron car show in Alamosa. I am not sure if they are selling it or maybe they just bring it for the show. My son likes old cars and any kind of cars and he is so fascinated with all those old cars, they really make it look really nice and new! All i can say, it was pretty cool and looking forward for another car show for next year!

Early Iron Car Show in Alamosa, CO.

Here are some pretty cool cars that caught our attention on that Early Iron Car Show in Alamosa. On the first picture, my daughter taught that the car looks like he has an eye, nose and mouth. She likes the color and I thought, that car is pretty cool. The picture at the end, this car looks like a green beetle that ready to fly. The third photo, the sound of that engine is pretty loud. My son thought that the one he is sitting on the second photo is nice and cool. So we had great time, there are tons of cars that are nice but its too much photos to post, so I just decided to post couple of them here. Enjoy!

At Treasure Falls

This is our second visit at Treasure Water Falls. We went to go fishing that time and we caught 2 rainbow trout and we end up putting them back in the water because my daughter want to let them go, she was sad but since it was raining and we only caught 2 fish, so we let them go anyway and we decided to go to Pagosa Spring to shop and then head back home then of course we stop by at the Treasure Falls and we hike about a mile walk to get to the water falls. It was worth the walk though, it was pretty nice up there. 

We match!

This photo taken in one of our meeting inside the kingdom hall. It was a very surprising moment when you see one of the sisters or even the little ones have a matching outfit. It was nice so I thought I want to share it here. :-) 

Fishing and Picnic with friends at Big Meadows

Oh it was nice to be out in the mountain and spend time with friends. One of our friends bring their Canoe and boat to go fishing. We didn't catch that time too but it doesn't matter, we had great time and just the scenery is really peaceful and uplifting. Very nice view indeed! We go to big meadows couple times a year to hike and go fishing. Sometimes we try different lakes and rivers to fish. But this time, we had a big group of friends that came and it was absolutely the best time ever!

Our 3 day Conventions in Aurora

It was such a nice blessings that we are able to attend the Jehovah's Witnesses 3 day conventions at Aurora last month of August. We have great spiritual friends and the spiritual food we receive is truly a blessings. Can't wait for more!

Car Show in the Valley

Both my son and my husband really like old cars and last month they have car show going on here in the Valley. Its not really a big one but there are some couple cars that are really interesting. We just look for a while didn't really stay that long because it was really hot that time that's why we bring umbrella. We are looking forward for another one here in the valley this weekend, this is going to be a big one. They called it "Early Iron". That will be in Alamosa, Colorado. I bet it will going to be a good one. 

We brought Pearly home!

At last we brought pearly home with us! Its about almost 2 hours from Pueblo to where we live. She really enjoying the scenery! We take her out to her cage and she really feel at home right away. We're just holding her and she is such a good bird. Like an hour before we reach our town, she find a place to sleep for a while and that's on top of my sit. She is so adorable! We really love her, she is part of our family now.

My computer is back!

We feel so devastated because my husband computer lost the connection and it seems like we wont be able to connect the internet, it might be broken or it just stop itself after he try to download my son new computer games. I keep thinking about my old computer, I still didn't throw it away though but I am still hoping that it will turn on. So what I did, I try to plug in and I keep praying that it will turn on and then suddenly it turns on! That was a miracle! (laughs) I thought my old computer wont work anymore. It stop working for couple of months, and i thought the power cord is the problem because the power wont turn on anymore. Good thing I didn't throw this computer away and instead I keep it in my closet for couple of months now and there he is, he is back! Isn't that amazing? I feel relief, because of this we don't need to buy new computer for this month. We are going to use our savings for our convention this end of the month and hopefully next month, we will be able to save money again to buy a new computer for my husband. For me, this asus computer is the best computer I've ever had, I had this for almost 8 years now and so far, i am so happy with this computer. :-)

Beautiful flower from our garden

Isn't this a beautiful flower? We got all this from our garden! Its was my daughter choice of the flower and I help her arrange it and put it in her very cute blue flower vase that we got it for a dollar in a yard sale. We put it in the middle in our dining table and it was pretty nice. All our friends make a compliment to it. Thanks!

Ice cream time

Once in a while after service or whenever we feel like we need ice cream to cool us off, we always go to sugar shack in the valley and they have organic ice cream that everyone likes. My kids likes their superman ice cream and i like their chocolate, espresso and also their rocky road ice cream and mary one of my closest friend here in the valley like strawberry ice cream. She's like a mother to me and she have a good heart, she also treat me like her own daughter. That was such a nice day and I'm glad we get a chance to sit down in the park and enjoy our company together and have such a yummy ice cream in the afternoon.
