Flashlight by Jesse J

Once in a while, I  get to discover a song that I like.  Lately, I have been listening to the song Flashlight by Jesse J.  You can play it and sing along with the lyrics  below.

When tomorrow comes
I'll be on my own
Feeling frightened of
The things that I don't know
When tomorrow comes
Tomorrow comes
Tomorrow comes

And though the road is long
I look up to the sky
And In the dark I found, I stop and I won’t fly
And I sing along, I sing along, then I sing along

I got all I need when I got you and I
I look around me, and see sweet life
I'm stuck in the dark but you're my flashlight
You're gettin’ me, gettin’ me through the night
Can’t stop my heart when you shinin’ in my eyes
I can’t lie, it’s a sweet life
I'm stuck in the dark but you're my flashlight
You're gettin’ me, gettin’ me through the night
Cause you're my flash light
You're my flash light, you're my flash light

I see the shadows long beneath the mountain top
I'm not the afraid when the rain won't stop
Cause you light the way
You light the way, you light the way

I got all I need when I got you and I
I look around me, and see sweet life
I'm stuck in the dark but you're my flashlight
You're gettin’ me, gettin’ me through the night
Can’t stop my heart when you shinin’ in my eyes
Can’t lie, it’s a sweet life
I'm stuck in the dark but you're my flashlight

You're gettin’ me, gettin’ me through the night
Cause you're my flash light
You're my flash light light light, you're my flash light light light You're my flash light light light light light ohhh
I got all I need when I got you and I
I look around me, and see sweet life 
I'm stuck in the dark but you're my flashlight
You're gettin’ me, gettin’ me through the night
Can’t stop my heart when you shinin’ in my eyes (shinin in my eyes)
Can’t lie, it’s a sweet life
I'm stuck in the dark but you're my flashlight (you're my flashlight)
You're gettin’ me, gettin’ me through the night
Cause you're my flash light
You're my flash light, you're my flash light
You're my flash light light light
You're my flash light light light
You're my flashlight

I also like this video pf Jesse J and Zendee.

Speaking of Flashlight, our chikldren have attended a birthday party last weekend.  The teme of the  party is "Tent"h as the celebrant turned ten.   This was held at their home so the kids had so much fun with all the activities that they did.
The party favor is flashlight which is awedsome!
So there you go.  What do you think of the  song?

Father's Day Paintings

 The little  artist wannabes  have been busy at home  preapring something for their Dad on Father's day.  They know how much   their father work so hard to provide us with  a comfortable life so they want to   make him feel appreciated.
This is what  Rye Bean have painted.
 A "hand-made" card, this isn't finish yet.  We still have to  put few more touches  on it to make it more prettier.
 EJ is not much of an artist but I love how this came out. I think he did a wonderful job with the  colors.  The palm trees  need some editing but other than that, Ithink it's gorgeous!
 We bought some frames at the Dollar Tree and  put each of them  in frames.
 I hope thatwhen they are older, they would  still be as sweet as they are now to us.
I am sure that my husband would absolutely love these!
 Happy Gather's Day to all the Dads.  I wish that my father is still around but I know that he is always looking down and smiling at me.  He was my biggest supporter when I was growing up.  I miss you Pa!

Music Recital 2015

On May 31st, our children had their music recital at the Memorial Baptist church.  The Torrance Music, the place where the kids go to for their  piano lessons, always hold the annual recital there.  The little mister was very nervous because it was his very first recital.  He was bouncing off the wall  and even used the restroom a couple of times before the program starts.  Ms. Burrito is very serious with music so she makes sure to practice a lot, this was the last practice at home.
 As Mommarazi, I can't let them leave without their photo taken.  They are in their age now where they are starting to resits  being photo shoot lol.  I take the pictures anyway, I am sure that they would appreciate these photos when they  are  grown up and have their own families.
 I planned on   on letting my daughter wear a red dress to match her brother's but she didn't want to.  She chose this dress instead and justwear her red high heels.  I also have a rose pin and thought it would look nice as an accent to badd color to the black and white dress that she have.
 EJ was wearing the red dress shirt and tuxedo pants that I got from BlackNBianco.  He love to   dress up but this particular day, he was  anxious.
There are two parts to the recital program.  The first part was  guitars and special request and the second part (which they were part of) was all piano and singing.  We went early because  we wanted to get a good seat. The first program wasn't done yet when we arrive so we waited at the lobby area of the church.
It gave us time to have some photos (of course, lol).
Looking at these photos makes me happy and sad.  I can't believe they are growing up so fast.  It's hard to believe that I gave birth to two loving kids!  I am blessed!
A professional photographer came and   took photos before the second part of the prgram starts.  I was a bit late to snap their pose but still managed to get this.
Daughter played two songs, the fairytale and Toccatinaby Kabalevsky.  I am not sure why the teacher gave her two but I am glad  as she did pretty well with both.  It was just funny that after the first song, the audience thought she was done so they all gave her a round of applause but then she started playing the other one.
Here's the video of her performance.

Below is EJ's performance of the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.  He's only been taking piano lessons for three months so the teacher gave him  an easy song to learn.

Parents and family can  put a dedication to their kids at the back of the program which is really nice.  I love this  music recital because  there are no tickets to sell or fund raising to do in order to  be able to participate in a recital.  You can invite as many as you like to attend the recital.  
It was getting ready to rain when the  program  ended so we hurried up and left.  We didn't  even had the time to talk to some friends.
We went to Eat N' Park to celebrate the occasion.
Our neighbor never ceased to  attend our children's  precious events and we are very grateful for them.  My husband's family  seldom attends to any of my kids  events even if we invite them and it makes me sad. I wish my family is here, they will sure atend to this kind of events for my kids.  
I understand now why, even though we didn't really like this house when we were looking at it, we bought it anyway.  I think God purposely situated us here because we have great neighbors who treats us like family.  
Well, that's another precious memories for my children.  We will continue to support their music  interest as long as they want it.  Music is a beautiful thing.
We wish you another  year of learning Burritos.  May you continue to soar high and   maintain to love what you do with music. Shadow Shots
