Wordless Wednesday--8th Edition



Once again I'll have to skip the Wordless part of it!LOL!
This picture was taken in 2003 when we took the kids to the Zoo.
We were watching the elephants when this bird (I believe it's a sparrow),just landed on my hubby's sunglasses!
Thanks God I had my camera on my hand and took a shot of it!

Nasty October-- Take 1

This month has not been easy for me!...
Kid's injuries...Trips to the ER...Family issues...Extra bills....Friendship disappointments...*Big Sigh*
Remember the cute picture I've posted on my last Wordless Wednesday?Yes...You got it right!...The one where my 9 year old Wilson is on the slide...That sweet lil'boy always had a lot of energy to spend!...
I keep saying to him when he's at home "Can't you stop still for a second?!" or "Stop jumping!You're not an ape you know?!"
Because he's like that I usually allow him to play outside with his school buddies so he can run and get exhausted!...

Well, yesterday he asked me to go and play outside...
Here's the outcome of that:

This was how he looked yesterday:




And this was how he looked this morning before going to school:




He said he was running away from one of his buddies...They were playing "Catch"...
He stumbled on his own feet!...
Everyone asked him (including the teacher) how he got that bruise...
By the look of it I bet everyone thought I had beat him!....*Big Sigh*............
One week ago Filipe fell on the the Gym's class...Dad took him to the ER...Was nothing serious (you can check that story over my other blog)...
About the other issues I'll post it later...
Right now I just feel like laying on my couch,cover my legs with a blanket and read an awesome book so I can be a different "person" for at least an half an hour...

Want Some?...







The weather has been kinda crazy lately.
In the same day we can experience the four seasons!
The night is cold as Winter, the mornings look like Spring, the afternoon is hot and the evening is a typical Fall day...
Eric doesn't mind the chilly nights as long he can have his favorites ice creams in the afternoon!

Bring Out Your Old Toys Meme

My dear friend Tina tagged me with this cute meme about our childhood favorite toys.

Basically all you need to do is pick one of your favorite toys as a
kid, post a picture of it (Google images is great if you don't have a
picture of it), and tell us about it.

At the end tag a couple of people for it.

So, here are mine:



This is actually me at the age of 8!

This cutie pie is my baby sister.She's 28 nowadays.
Believe it or not all those toys are mine.That's my fav kitchen!She was just posing for the pic cause thou she has that lil'angel look, she has always been a tom boy!!!
Some day I'll post about her and you'll be amazed how different she is from that look!LOL!



I'll be tagging my BBF's Angeline,Tisha and Petula .
