Family

You don't choose your family. 
They are God's gift to you, 
as you are to them. 
-Desmond Tutu -

The greatest thing in family life
 is to take a hint 
when a hint is
intended
and
not to
take a hint 
when a hint isn't intended.

Rob Falsini

Have you ever stumbled  Rob Falsini's music video on Facebook?  He has a  beautiful voice .  I  was watching one of his street performances and man, his voice is amazing.  Today, I read anupdate on his  FB  home page that he just became a GRA Artist and will be produced by their pop/rock label, GRA Red.  I am sure that he would be thrilled to finally  record his music through a recording company.  He'll be  around  so many music instruments and  accessories like   mf and other cool  music   tools to better record his songs.  He did a cover of the "Chasing Cars" and his voice is  so good to listen to.  If you haven't seen it, play the video below.

Charcoal Painting

A good friend of mine did this charcoal painting of my husband and I. It's always amazing to me how people can be so talented in sketching or drawing people's images. Her husband made two shades of the photo and here it is.  I kind of like the last one the most.
Thanks sis Mai and Edwin!
 I would like to have this printed  because both  of our children has this type of photo and  I would like for  hubby and I to have one as well to hang it in our family wall of portraits.  Here's the original photo, what do you think?
I wish  everyone a great   day!

Family Memory Cube

Transferring my  office to the basement was put on hold.  Hubby can't find time to really help me with the project since he is very busy with his  studies.  He also wants to consult a local electrician to find out how we can  safely put a home entertainment down there so that when the kids wants to play with their toys, they will have something to watch  or listen to for entertainment.  

Meanwhile, I want to  share this project that my daughter did.  Their teacher want them to make a poster  with memorable pictures.  He had this idea of  putting the pictures in all sides of a shoe box.  She covered the box with a wrapping paper and my husband printed the pictures and she pasted it there.
 I think that it turned out really well.
 I was a little bit  worried that  she might get in trouble since she did it differently but  thank goodness, she didn't.
I am glad that she always thinks outside of the box.  She make sure to push her ability to do things.
