So cute stuffed animals toys on diaper cakes made by dear friend.

One of my friends had a baby shower party two weeks ago.  We’re excited for her upcoming baby boy who’s due next month.

It’s a boy and he is a February baby.

Very cute baby shower cake.

Chayote Squash and Pork Stir-Fry At Potluck 1980s Themed Birthday Party ( Momimhar posted on January 18th, 2017 )

1980s theme birthday party.

Filipino-American moms got together for a 1980s themed birthday party for our dear friend R four days ago. Most of us grew up in the 80s and 90s and when someone suggested the 80s theme birthday party, we all went nuts. LOL.

Anyway, it was a potluck party.  Everyone brought special dishes for all to enjoy.  Made some Chayote Cabbage with Pork Stir-Fry.

Chayote Squash and Pork Stir-Fry

I don’t cook that often at home. But when I do, I stay in my kitchen until the food is cooked and the place is cleaned.

Ingredients:

1 lb. pork (for stir fry)

3 cloves garlic, crushed

1 small onion, chopped

1 tbsp. olive oil

2-3 pcs. chayote squash, peeled and cut into cubes (bite size)

1 beef bouillon cube

1 cup water

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. In medium heat, saute garlic and onion until brown and soft.
  2. Add pork.  Stir fry for about 5-8 minutes until pork is brown.
  3. Sprinkle a dash of salt and a dash of black pepper.
  4. Simmer for 5 minutes while cooking in it’s own sauce.  Stirring while simmering.
  5. Add chayote squash, water, and the beef bouillon. Stir to blend and let simmer for 5-10 minutes or until the vegetables and meat are tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve hot with rice.

Pretty birthday cake.

The little ones playing the Cup Game. They had so much fun!

Everyone had a great time at the party, I think.  Especially when we started the disco and karaoke in the evening.

A Blessed Happy New Year To You – It’s 2017 ( Momimhar posted on January 1st, 2017 )

Fireworks at our place. K and guests.

We had a blast celebrating New Year’s at our humble home.  Two of my dear husband’s co-employees and their families came over to celebrate with us.  They bought fireworks and we had fun shooting fireworks in a cold New Year’s Eve. The kids had fun dancing with Just Dance on Wii U. We’re supposed to do Just Sing Karaoke too, but for some reason the CD didn’t play.

It was a great New Year’s celebration.  We missed a few family and friends but they were sick and my brother-in-law and his wife already had a commitment ahead of time.

Happy New Year to you!  Wishing you all the best of 2017.

Merry Christmas to You and Yours #Christmas2016 ( Momimhar posted on December 24th, 2016 )

Have yourself a Merry Christmas.

It’s amazing how time flies these days.  It’s Christmas time again. Are you traveling to see family and friends and spend time with them this holiday season? Or, are you staying home and host a big Christmas Party? Whichever it is, I bet it’s going be a wonderful event for everyone.

As for me and my family, we are celebrating Christmas Day at my parents-in-law’s home in Tyler.  While making this post, my dear husband is currently prepping the brisket to put in the oven in a few for tomorrow’s Christmas Day dinner.

This Christmas Eve, we attended the church service at 6:00 P.M.  When we got home after church and had dinner, we started the party.  The children could not wait to open their Christmas presents.  So after dinner, we head on and started the Christmas Party. They started opening gifts from the youngest kid to the oldest.  Boy, they were so excited and anxious!

Opening Christmas presents.

So, the young ones had a great time opening their presents.  I think everybody loved the stuff they got from the family.  K was so excited to see if Santa will give her nice gifts for Christmas.  We brought the reindeer food she received from the class Christmas Party at school since we’re at the grandparents’ house.  We had to make sure Santa will stop by and drop off her presents.  🙂 Na-Na helped her scatter the reindeer food in the backyard.  (FYI: Reindeer food is a mixture of oatmeal and glitters or sparkles.)

After the kids’ unwrapping presents, it was adults turn to open gifts and play the White Elephant Gift Exchange. We missed my brother-in-law and his wife in this year’s family Christmas Party because they’re both sick.  Nephew M is in Florida and niece M and her family will be coming over tomorrow, Christmas Day.

It was a fun evening. So thankful for family, love, time, and the blessings we received all year.

Birthday Party At Sweet & Sassy ( Momimhar posted on December 15th, 2016 )

K’s 6th birthday celebration was amazing.  She has been wanting to go to Sweet & Sassy and have a walk on their stage/runway in the store.  Obviously, she wanted to have a fashion show there. She told me that she wanted her birthday held at Sweet & Sassy.  My dear husband and I talked about the plan and he said book the party ahead of time to avoid the hassle of December party rush.

So here’s K and her dear family and friends at her 6th birthday party Fashion Runway at Sweet & Sassy in Garland (Texas).

Getting hair and face glam up.

Follow the leader to the dressing room. 🙂

Sweet.

Besides being a salon and store, Sweet & Sassy offers party options for kids.  You can choose from six party packages here.  In addition to that, you can also get add ons to the party package you have selected.  Goody bags, Make-your-own Spa items, or a Limo ride are some of the options that you can customized. I added goody bags as giveaways to our guests.  The girls loved it because they got to pick the items they like.

K’s on the spotlight.

K and her guests all dressed up. In this photo, they were about to play a game of Freeze Dance and then dance disco after.

The hostess and the crew were very friendly and lively.  Their cheerfulness kept the children engaged in all the activities during the party.  There was no dull moment.  What added to K’s enjoyment during her party was the music played.  Her favorites: Shake It Off by Taylor Swift, Can’t Stop The Feeling by Justin Timberlake from the movie Trolls, and one that I can’t remember…sorry. 🙂

The party room. Every party has its own hostess to help serve the cake and drinks.

The goody bags and stuff. These are add ons to the party packages.

Happy birthday, Kaylen. The hostess and her assistants greet the birthday girl and guests at the door before proceeding to the dressing room.

K wanted to wear a Chinese dress on her birthday. Glad I found this dress on Poshmark.

I think it was a great party.  K said she had an amazing day.   I hope our guests had a great time, too.  Thanks for the time and, also, for the birthday presents.
