Now There're Three

Christina and Stephanie always dressed alike.  When Stephanie came to visit, Christina would dig up clothes that were similar with what Steph wore.  Here Stephanie is wearing a set of Christina's clothes.  Nikka, Steph's younger sister wanted to dress just like them, too.  Luckily for her, Christina had another denim dress and purple shirt which she outgrew.

I love the purple butterfli I bought in the Philippines during my visit earlier this year. I wish I bought more! I just got about 8 different colors.

I just love this picture of 33-month old DS.  In all of the the pictures taken of him at this time, he was holding a greeting card.  He must have felt very special to receive a big one from us.  It was like a very important treasure.  It went wherever he went.

When I make a layout, I just keep on going, picking out the pieces from different ziploc bags until I am satisfied with what I have. I didn't have time to jot down the different scrapbooking supplies I used; nor will I have time to do so in the future. Mine is just to cut and glue and be happy I'm done with a page.

These are baby pictures of DD when she was a couple of months old.  DS and I looked for a baby hammock - something that we used to put little children in and swing them to sleep.  We had those when we were kids back home in the Philippines.  They were made of woven rattan.  We couldn't find any within the Chicago area, so DS came up with this idea to tie each side of a baby carrier with a sturdy rope and hung each on the walls across the room.  So there was this baby carrier suspended in the middle of the dining room in our apartment building.

DD loved it!  She would be comfortably asleep a few minutes after we put her in it.

When DD's awake, she talks to her Disney mobile friends and tries to reach out to grab them.  After sometime wriggling and gurgling in her make-shift hammock, not being able to reach the mobile above her, she starts to get impatient.  That's the end of being in the hammock for her! Time to be in Mama's arms!

These are flowers I cut from a patterned DCWV paper.  I applied glitter glue and that made them look fancy.  The leaves were stamped and cut out.  I crocheted the tiny pink flowers which I adhered in the center of the green cutouts.  I then sewed pink pearls in the center of the crocheted flowers.
