Valentine table setting

 I have always been amazed at people who goes all out decorating their houses for the holidays, for any other special event or just because and I asked myself "do I have what it takes to decorate?". Therefore this Valentine day I decided to dress my dining room table. I have to say I am proud of myself for pulling it off. Most of the materials I already had at home.

After I was happy with my table decor I was inspired to make a delicious meal. The menu was yellow rice, red baked potatoes with sour cream on top and honey roast pork tenderloin. YUMMMS! my son does not
like meat but boy did he loved the tenderloins.


Happy Valentine Days! and let it be everyday full of love and happiness!

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

1 Corinthians 13:13

So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Its Music Time....

Pie Jesus is a piece written by many composers but one that comes to mind is Andrew LLoyd Webber. I heard this piece one day listening to the cd of the Celtic Woman (an all female Irish women musicians with amazing voices and a violinist player) and I am a fan of their unique singing style. Pie Jesu is sang in Latin and often sang in a Soprano voice. I chose this piece because it summons all of what Jesus represents, He is the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, grant us peace, in which it happens to be the translations to the piece. I sang it acapella using my Spring Galaxy 4G in which does not have the best microphone but it will do for now. This piece is quite high in pitch, modify your volume. I have copied the lyrics found in lyrics translate, below for you to read it or sing along with me :)! Enjoy!


Pie Jesu, Pie Jesu,
Pie Jesu, Pie Jesu,
Qui tollis peccata mundi;
Dona eis requiem,
Dona eis requiem.

Agnus Dei, Agnus Dei,
Agnus Dei, Agnus Dei,
Qui tollis peccata mundi;
Dona eis requiem,
Dona eis requiem.
Sempiternam, sempiternam

Matthew 26:28

For this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

A day at the librabry and other fun things.....

It sure was an awesome FRIDAY..Woke up to a not so sunny Florida
weather. The sun was playing peek-a-boo. Each time the sun came out I was getting ready to go outside and play kick ball with Ethan but on a blink of an eye the sun hid behinds clouds, clouds and more clouds. I was not sure if it was going to rain or not and I wanted to go out, so I packed my diaper bag, got the kiddos and off to the library we went. Amalia did not have therapy because her awesome therapist had a doctor appointment. As we arrived to the library Ethan went straight to the children section and he was just so darn happy. The awesome thing was we had that part of the library all to our self, no kids, or librarian in the area so we explore like nobody business. I asked Ethan what he wanted to read and he answered "thinothaur." I said "dinosaurs" and he said "thinothaur." So, we looked for books with pictures of "thinothaurs." Once we found the book he went to the sitting area and was amazed at all of the pictures on the book and the best part was his face expression.

As the kids were busy with their books I looked for some book to check out and of course the book about "thinothaur" came home with us. The fun continued at home, where we had floor time and we learned our colors and more about "thinothaur" and even Amalia was very studious....

The fun continued where I prepared an awesome tomatoe bisque soup with cheese on top accompanied with a turkey sandwich...yummmss...the kiddos well Ethan had turkey sandwich with some nutella and bread stick...Amalia had her veggie pasta and some nutella..she loves loves nutella..she make an "oh"  face when she see the jar. (An "oh" face is when she shapes her lips as if she is going to pronounce the letter "O").....The fun continue for dinner we made our very first home made pizza, and may I say for newbies we did well and it tasted sooo gooood. We did a meat lover pizza. Ethan had a blast preparing it, one thing I regret is not taking lots of picture but my hand had flour so, next time I promise.                    

                                 I love that smile!

                           Before, placing it in the oven..yummy    

We then placed the pizza in the oven and cleaned up because we had flour everywhere...took Ethan a bath and 20 minutes later it was dinner time. Where was Amalia in all of these, she was having a fun of her own.

               She had some delicious pizza sauce all over her..



                        0 minutes later and Voila...it tasted so good!

     After such delicious dinner, I went to do the dishes to come back to the living room and find Ethan and Amalia sleeping like this.........
                            and Amalia sleeping like this........

 And with that I say good night to all...sweet dreams!


Psalm 119:105

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path

Titus 2:1-8

But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine. Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness. Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. ...
