In the Cooking Mode

Today is a lazy day for me. Why? Because it's been raining like crazy for the whole day. I didn't get the chance of walking Pumpkin outside and I feel so sorry for her. I hope the weather is okay so we can walk early in the morning at the park. I did a lot of cooking today. I made Filipino foods for lunch, dinner and for our brunch tomorrow. My son loves the meal I prepare for dinner. It was a garlic spinach, eggplant with garlic and oyster sauce; and fried tofu with lime juice, onions and soy sauce for protein. He did eat rice with all of it. Anyway, below is a pork adobo with new potatoes for brunch tomorrow.

This dish happened to be the Philippine's National dish; it is easy to make and really delicious especially if you eat it with steamed rice and some veggies of your choice. On the other hand, I can't eat it with rie for I am diabetic. So, I eat it with few cubes of potatoes instead. Anyway, if you haven't tried it, you should. "cause if you don't....you are missing a lot!

Camping in Cooper Lake State Park

After church last Sunday, went home right away, ate lunch, and packed our camping stuffs up and headed to Cooper Lake State Park in Sulphur Spring. We got there before 6pm. Though the weather was a little bit warm, we set up our tent right away, ate diner and then went for a walk with our new dog, Pumpkin. It was fun because Jacob saw an armadillo for the first time while we were walking. Thank goodness, at around 10, it started to cool of and we were able to comfortably lay on our bed inside the tent. It took a good solid hour before we all finally fell asleep for the bugs were very noisy.

Anyway, above are few of the pictures I have taken during our two day camp there. We were supposed to stay there for another night, but the transplant center phoned us saying that I need to go to the hospital to have my cbc test done. Oh well, it is really hard to schedule a perfect time for a family camp. Hope next time we wouldn't encounter anything like that again.

Jacob's Mother's Day cards for Me :-)https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=847156733542270786#allposts

These are the cards my son's made for me for Mother's Day. What a sweet boy I have! The messages where very touching and I love them. I never thought how much he appreciates every little thing I do for him....and how much they meant to him.

These cards will be kept in a safe place where I can always read and remember how much he loves me...and how much he values the love I give to him...even the small and simple gestures of hugs, kisses and tickling :-). He is growing like a weed and before I know it, he is already a teenager.

Damage from Hailstorm

These are the photos of the damage the hailstorm made on our van four weeks ago when tornado touched the Dallas - Forth Worth areas. We parked our car at Park 'n Fly near the airport the 30th of March when we flew to Utah for our church's semi - annual General conference. We've found out about the tornado that hit Forney area through our family friend who happened to live in the community where we live. Our house was unharmed, but the van.

Anyway, we are so glad we have insurance company who helped fix the window. Now, it is good as it was, plus we got money ($3,000) from them to fix the dents. Not bad, hope the money would be enough.

My Little Egg Hunter

In our house one of our family tradition during Easter is to boil, color/decorate and hide the eggs. We don't just buy plastic egg shells and stuff them with toys and candies, instead we do the real egg. Daddy hides the eggs and Jacob's finds them.

Of course I do the boiling of the eggs and helps decorate them. How about you? What's your family Easter tradition? Oh and one more thing, we don't buy Jacob an Easter basket and filled it with toys and chocolate for it deprived the true meaning of Easter. Plus, he couldn't care less even if we buy him one.
