Hello Sasha!

We picked up Sasha from the pound on Monday.
Hopefully, she'll grow up around Mika and have many adventure with him.

She's a German Shepherd mix and she's a very energetic puppy who pees and poops all over!  We're building her a nice house and we love her so much! She's a super cute puppy!

Welcome to our family, Sasha!
We love you!

Every single month is the same story: my period is late, or is it?  I don't keep track of it, so I don't really know whether I had it or not, or when I'm supposed to expect it. 
I hate this situation every single month, but at the time being that's what I'm gonna have to experience for a while until we figure out a better way to birth control.

I read how some women are going the 'old' method as they don't want to use drugs/hormones. I had an IUD 2 years ago and I was a totally different person. I won't get that thing in my body ever again. NO WAY! But it was convenient... even though it hurt like hell and I bled the whole time. 

Anyway, long story short: I got my period. I was relieved, but sad. I just had a baby 8 months ago!!! But I don't know... the thought of not having another one is sad. We talk about another baby, so may be some day in the future we decide to make that talk reality, but for now... thanks God for my super heavy, super painful period.

Christmas Update


Christmas was a nice quiet time in our home: everybody was sick. I was sick, baby L was sick, big brother Mika was sick, and Gary was sick. Everybody sick... 

As you can see there's no presents... We don't do Santa in our home and Christmas is about Jesus' birth. Mika got the story down pretty fast and he loved hearing about baby Jesus and his birth. He did play with the animals in my nativity, as well as the tree.
By January 3rd the tree was already in a box. We woke up several morning with the tree down b/c Mr Mika wanted to get the star... So instead of having a heart attack b/c of the stupid tree, I put it away.

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas season and the new year brings lots of great things!

Cake Boss

Mika's birthday party is next Saturday and I have 95% of everything done.
Games? Check.
Decorations? Check.
RSVPs? Check.

If everybody comes to his party, we'll have about 9 kids and 15 adults. I've never thrown a party (myself) before so it's going to be nice to have people over for Mika's birthday.

One thing I'm doing that I've never done before is making a theme cake and decorate it!
This is the idea (sort of)

and this is my 1st attempt at making a wagon...

not bad ~ but so much work! OMG!

however, I'm super excited at the idea of making the cake and seeing the end result...
Guess you'll have to wait until next week :)

We don't do that

OMG- Finally this stupid day is coming to an end and we finally can stop seeing all those orange pumpkins as well as all the stupid stuff that comes with it. I wasn't born in the USA so I never knew about 10/31 until I arrived here 15 years ago.
I worked for a family who was REALLY big into decorating for 10/31 and they did dinner parties and everything, and I just hated it. I don't think 10/31 and Christianity go together and you can come and tell me everything about the harvest and whatever. We don't do that.

When Mika was almost 2 we took him to the pumpkin patch. It was the 1st and only time we did that. We won't take him again. I won't take baby L there either. I don't care what people tell me, the whole month of October is based on a pagan celebration that I don't wanna take part of.

'Oh you're so boring! You're not even gonna let your kids dress up!' Nope. I won't. My kids won't dress up EVER as anything. There's gonna be no superheroes, no princesses, no scary stuff. I don't care what people come and tell me about letting your kids play dress up. I don't do that.

Everybody thinks this day is so silly, and they take cute photos with the kids with their costumes, and blah blah blah and it's just SO MUCH MORE than that. My son is 3 years old and he doesn't know who Batman, Spiderman, Ironman is. He's not adoring any superhero or pretending to be a wizard, or a ninja turtle. He's a 3 year old boy who likes fast cars, who enjoys watching shows about nature and bugs, who is still a sweet little boy with a sweet little heart I have to protect.

So no. We don't do that and whatever... it's not fun.
