I 'm a 30 year old mom of two kids and married to a wonderful man.Living in a different country is hard for me,made merealize what i was missing from the smell of the bbq on the street to the shouts and laughter of the kids and teenagers playing tag in the moonlit night. The sweet noise of my mum calling or be it shouting my name.
Having met my husband online was one of the greatest thing that happened to me. I have had relationship on the Internet but it never worked until i met him. The very first time we chatted online was like I knew him already. We were already comfortable with each other, we connected and knew right from the start that we were going to make our relationship work. Our main form of communication was chatting online. He would call me but i was the one who always insist that we just talk online to save money. Even if I could not hear his voice I could tell what he was feeling since he would use the emoticon. Getting Free Emoticons & Winks can make a big difference on an online conversation. It can also express your joy, happiness, surprise and frustrations. Its also fun to send each other those silly faces and winks. It works on Yahoo, Hotmail, Aim and Icq messengers. There are thousand of emoticons and winks to choose from and all contents are free.Get them right now and make your online chatting a little bit more fun and interesting.
Pictures were taken Feb 28,2009 on my MIL 67th birthday. Ralph was working, Kayla was with her mommy for the weekend. Angelo came down for the day and made us dinner, it was pork chops in tomato sauce. It was so delicious that i gorged on it so much, i could barely stand after. We just had cake after with MIL blogwing the cake with Kaitlyn and the last picture is of her after having some of "mima's" brithday cake. Even if it was just the 4 of us we still had fun playing with the wii. I wished i could have done more for my MIL since she is such a big help to me. She love Yanni and I'll probably go to the mall one of this days and surprise her with his cd.
Traveling and going to places are just one of the few things we are looking into. I have been living here in America for every 2 years now but i have not been to any historical or tourist landmarks. At first it was due to my being pregnant and when I finally had the baby we didn't want to travel. I have always been a home body anyways but visiting wonderful places in Branson, Missouri like the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing would be wonderful. Not just for me and Ralph but also for the kids. Going this month would be perfect since they will be having the Young Christians Weekend. A weekend full of not only great rides and awesome music but also a weekend of praise and worship. Since our kids are still young its good to incorporate fun and worship. This would be one a perfect family fun get away where the kids can get to see nature and enjoy the activities offered by the hotel. There is something for daddy like golfing since his been really practicing on the wii game. A visit to the museum and the lake would be interesting and educational for the kids.
If your thinking of doing business HIlton Branson Convention Center Hotel can still be the place to go. With Amenities such as high speed Internet, concierge, fitness center onsite, with a business center and tempting restaurants on the property. Whether your visiting for business or pleasure your fun will surely be a memorable experience.
After all the fun time in the snow both kids are a little bit under the weather. Kaitlyn has been having a fever on and off. She was already seen by her pedia, she is clear of ear infection. It could be that she is teething again. She has been so grumpy and cranky lately. Kaitlyn enjoy being out and about that every time she sees or notices someone going out she goes to the door and looks for her coat. She gets so upset that she cant go out and would throw a temper tantrum. I feel bad for her since she must have cabin fever and I know she isn't feeling to good. I'm keeping a close eye on her and hope that we get our happy Kaitlyn back.
Have you thought about our environment lately? How we could save mother nature for our kids to enjoy? I have never thought about it at first but now that I'm a parent I want my future kids to be able to enjoy the world. To make it cleaner and safer for them. My BIL does recycling and I use to tell him its such a drag recycling and he turned and told me " we have to save our environment, we have to do our part", and he is right. In our household we use way to much paper products like paper towels, napkins and white paper for the kids to write on. To save our trees from being cut and converted to paper i was thinking of minimizing the use of paper towels by using cloth to wipe the counter and spilled liquids. To use table clothe napkins instead for napkins and re-using the back of junk mail papers for the kids to write on. Its not much but at least were doing something to help. I told Ralph that he should look into Dolphin Blue is a good source for Eco-friendly office supplies. It is the only online source where all products contain recycled materials. And that he should tell his office mates about it. Its going to save the city money and it will help save our environment. Us parents should start educating our kids about recycling and about saving our world. Every little thing counts.
