They Are Interested In Playing Keyboards!

So my boys just received a surprise presents from their nana (grandmother) the other day! When they saw the two keyboards sitting on the table, their expressions were just priceless! My 9-year old has been telling us how he misses playing with his toy keyboard which I got rid of a few years ago. So my mother-in-law decided to buy them keyboards so they will have something to occupy them while learning something other than playing video games!

They immediately wanted to play with them, they spent a few hours trying to learn! I tell you the Live Sound of the keyboards is really amazing! I loved listening to them even though they were just playing random notes!

Anyway, my 9-year old spent several hours playing his keyboard that night. He was very eager to learn the song "Aura Lee" and he actually learned how to play it in that short period of time which I am so proud of! Hopefully he'll learn more songs!

I Turned 29 Years Old!

Over 2 weeks ago, I celebrated my 29th birthday! Yeah I know I'm getting old! LOL! But I really don't feel old at all! Before my 29th birthday, I got really worried that I'm almost close to 30 and to me being in the 30s is old! No offense to anyone! LOL!

But I realized that age is just a number and what counts is how you feel inside and I tell you, I definitely feel like I'm still in my teen years! LOL! I don't want to sound so conceited but there have been a lot of people that thought I was less than 18 years old! Even my husband tells me sometimes that I look 14! Haha I wish!

Anyway, picture above was taken on my special day. My family took me to an authentic Mexican restaurant to celebrate my birthday! I am so thankful to GOD for giving me another year to spend with my family!!

I Would Love To Have This Wicker Patio Sets

I am so thankful to my mother-in-law for building us a new and bigger porch! This was one of her Christmas presents last year to us! The picture above was taken last year after the porch just got done, that is why it looks empty! 

Anyhow, I love hanging out on our new porch! It is so roomy and plenty of place to sit down while getting some fresh air, looking out at the view, listening and watching the birds or reading a book! I know my boys love hanging out on there too and playing, there's definitely plenty of room to run around!

Anyway, I would really love to make our porch look appealing and make it an outdoor living space where we can have a family time and be more comfortable and relaxed! I would love to put an area rug and this Gorgeous Wicker Patio Furniture | Home and Patio D├ęcor Center! Well money is a little tight right now but as soon as we get a little break, rest assured I will make this possible!

I Love Gardening!

One of the things that I really enjoy doing is gardening! I love to plant beautiful flowering plants as well as vegetables. This year my husband and I planned to have a big vegetable garden so we can start canning but unfortunately, we weren't able to do it, so we ended up having a small garden!

Anyway, even though our vegetable garden aren't as big as we planned, I still love it for we are able to pick fresh veggies for free! My husband also has an hydroponic garden and I'm telling you, the plants gets so darn big! Here are a few pictures of some the veggies that are growing in my husband's hydroponic garden...

Lettuce and Spinach

The only head of lettuce that was left...we've been eating them almost every night!

Harvest from yesterday....the last head of lettuce, 3 cucumbers and 1 squash...all from hubby's hydroponic garden!
