Fun stuff

 

as of late, i have been spending a lot of hours experimenting on my pictures with photo enhancers. i have become addicted to it. i love that i can manipulate the colors, crop, design and be creative. free photo enhancers such as picnik.com has become a growing popularity for amateur photographers like myself who doesn't know how to use Photoshop. It's a helpful tool especially when one does not own an SLR camera, you can do a lot of tricks with this photo enhancers like a pro. 

try it!

cheska's paparrazi



my seven year old francesca is somewhat a shy type girl.
she doesn't sing and dance around the house a lot and
she immediately stops when she gets caught dancing or singing,
or do a little acting by herself.
as far as i know-and because i'm the mommy, the one
who is supposed to know everything about her own kid more than anyone-
my daughter has always been a very self conscious little girl.

but,
lo and behold!
cheska completely surprised me when she did this dance number.
how did she become so confident overnight? i'm totally clueless. 

 so cute!

(the one taking the video seemed confused though)

My little superstar



Cheksa learned this song all by herself from
Demi Lovato's version of  "This is me"
 (You have to see Demi's performance to understand why)

When i look at you - take two



Naomi was asked to sing on the spot for the second time at the school's foundation day  program while the judges tally the scores for the dance competition. We weren't expecting that she was going to sing again so we had to improvise for the music since we didn't have the karaoke cd that time and we also didn't have enough time to get  it back in the house. good thing, my sister had a copy of  miley's song from her cellphone  so we just handed it over to the person in charge of the sound system. obviously they had problems trying to make it work.

I think it's pretty obvious in this video that my daughter was a little bit upset. She  was not as confident and lively as she was the day before. The school's foundation celebration had a dance competition and she was upset  that her group was not able to represent their class. The reason for this was, the class was not prepared to perform, they were very uncooperative during practice days. She was so into this whole dance contest and she worked really hard rehearsing all the dance moves she choreographed herself. She even made her own dance mix (several of it actually) to make it more appealing and encourage the whole class to join, but they were consistently stubborn. But, despite all the troubles and frustrations she encountered, i am a proud  to say that my daughter handled things quite well. She showed traits of determination, initiative, and resourcefulness right up until the last minute. I hated seeing her disappointed that way, but SHE'S A TOUGH ONE.
