What is Christmas in the US vs Christmas in the Philippines? Countdown to Christmas! //Cheers Marie

11.30.16

Hellerskie!!!

Just like that November is over! Today is the last day of November 2016. Tomorrow we will be counting down to Christmas! 

Christmas is my favorite holiday! I want to share my childhood memory when I still live in the Philippines.



In the Philippines, Christmas starts on the ber months. Ber means September, October, November and December. Sometimes it extends until January and exaggerated through February before Valentines day. Its a tradition that you put up your parol (christmas star) and other Christmas decorations up. The streets, buildings and specially the mall are decorated with Christmas lights!

I remember when we were little (i have 6 siblings), my grandpa drives to SM (Shoe Mart - Supermall in the Philippines) and get us matchy matchy dresses and clothes. After Christmas shopping we go to Kenny Rogers and eat lunch. I also remember my lolo (grandpa) said, "eat mash potatoes instead of rice, there is no rice in United States" "you need to get use of eating mash potatoes" hehe




My dad usually buys us new shoes for Christmas. We dont get to buy new stuff unless the school starts or Christmas day. We rock our new clothes, shoes and little bags for Christmas day. 

On Christmas day we go to our relatives houses and get our gifts. The best gifts are those super new crispy bills from the bank. God fathers and God mothers gives more gift and cash hehe i still remember those super "lutong" (crispy) 2 peso bill hehe




There is also a Catholic tradition called "simbang gabi" mass and after the mass we eat bibingka (rice cake) and puto bung bong. Delish! i miss eating those during Christmas holidays.


Since i moved in the US these tradtions are different. In my family case, we go to Steamboat colorado, stay in our cabin. Spend time in the mountains. Hot tub in the balcony, snowing outside, open gifts at midnight. Snowboard Christmas day. 




Then the day after Christmas, we go to Christmas shopping to get all the sale hehe

I guess Christmas is different here because its cold and snowing all the time. I'm really really excited to be at Steamboat again and spend lots of family time!!!




ps. So many trips planned already! Cant wait to share all our trip travel vlogs!

Thanksgiving 2016! //Cheers Marie

11.23.16

Hellerskie!!!

Today is Thanksgiving eve! So much to do so little time. 

We are hosting thanksgiving lunch/dinner again this year. I'm so so excited since we have a new home to host dinners. Last year we were at the old house. I love love our old house since there are so many memories in our first home but when it comes to hosting dinners/parties, our old house is little. Now since we moved to a bigger house, i think hosting is easier. I will be vlogging thanksgiving so i can film the memories. (hope i have time to film while cooking tomorrow)

There are so many things to be thankful for this year! Super blessed 2016. WORK and REWARD are my big words for this year!

I am thankful for everything that God gave us this year. Not everyday is a good day but most of the time its a great day!




I used to stress about small things, now i just take life one day at a time. If i want something, i work for it. If i dont like something, i make sure to change or improve things.

There are days i just reflect and realize how blessed I am to have a wonderful family. I tell my husband that I'm happy when we are happy (obvs). I'm happy when our kids are happy and healthy.

I share lots of fun vlogs, sad vlogs and so so vlogs in youtube these days to treasure all the memories we have as a family. I love to look back and re-watch clips that the kids did or how they react on things. These memories i treasure forever. I'm back blogging, i remember my first blog back in 2004, when i was still in college and trying to figure out life.

I hope blogger wont shutdown like multiply so i can continue to share what's in my brain and achieve memories.

I'am so thankful for everything about my life now. Cant wait to share more vlogs and blogs. I cant wait to see the kids reaction when they look back on these memories.

Happy Thanksgiving. Thank you for reading my blog. Enjoy your time with your family and friends!

love and light!

Denver Nuggets vs Phoenix Suns! Denver Nuggets Dancers! //Sanchez Fun

11.21.16

Hellerskie!!!


I'm back after few days with my dental implants. I'm not 100% yet but slowly recovering from the procedure/surgery. The implants are hurting so bad since the pain of healing is processing. What i just said doesnt make sense? yeah maybe. I'm still recovering.

Anyway, last Wednesday night was the game of Denver Nuggets vs Phoenix Suns. Denver won 120-104. It was a fun game. More fun since Alyza and the rest of Denver Nuggets Dancers, mini cheerleaders/ junior denver nuggets dancers performed at half time!




Super proud of our baby doll. She love dancing and we support her in every cheerleading/dancing activity she does. She's so good at it and she looks like a pro! (not saying that coz she's my daughter but she really did great!)

Before and After Invisalign, Dental Implants, and IV Sedation! //Cheers Marie!

11.18.16

Hellerskie!!!


Finally back blogging! The dental implants as you can tell by the title of this video is the reason i haven't blog. I was really scared and nervous. Got so many what ifs. lol what if after IV Sedation i did not wake up, What if if my FSA, Flex Spending Account wont work? what if the implants will break or my bones break? hahahaa so many what ifs but i'm happy to say, i woke up from sedation and i'm here blogging.






I want to blog today so my experience are still fresh in my mind.





I had 3 dental implants, i did 1 year invisalign and still going. Started my invisalign back in november 2015 and today im still using invisalign until the crown for my dental implants are done. I will have a permanent retainer to wear at night, to keep my teeth straight.

Its been my insecurity that my teeth doenst look good at all. I suffer from teeth loss and gingivitis. I was not taking care of my health and my teeth. I end up doing invisalign since i lost three big tooth that helps me chew few. I end up being pescetarian coz i cant chew meat. Five years ago my old dentist told me to get implants before my teeth move. I don't have money back in the day so i kept my gums blank. 3 teeth missing and it leads to teeth/bone movement.






The main reason i wanted to get invisalign is to straighten my teeth so the dental implants can be place. As year pass by my teeth move and today i had 3 dental implants.

My video will explain what happend and how my teeth was save by invisalign and dental implants.

I think the scarest part is IV Sedation durig dental implants. I'm always scared of IV's since i give birth to my children. The dental implants i didnt remember what happend at all. it was painless until now im getting headache and my face feels swollen which is normal. i over reacted being scared. as a normal person will do hehe

ps. i paid for all the expenses in my invisalign and implants. some are covered by my insurance some are from flexible spending or fsa account. some are straight out of our savings.

Hope you guys learn something in this video and subscribe!!

I will be back in our normal fun vlogs after this video :)

Day of the Dead 2016! Denver Botanical Garden! //Sanchez fun

11.7.16

Hellerksie!!!!

Last Saturday, we went to Denver Botanic Gardens and celebrated Day of the dead. We paid general admissions for adult and free entrance for the kids. 



Alyza did face paint and it was $10 for half face. More expensive this year i think and the botanic garden is decorated different. We missed the performance since they held it inside the gardens rather than outside but we got a chance to get a pic of the performers! They were so sweet!



My favorite part is decorating the sugar skulls! 



Did you celebrate day of the dead too? (Dia de Muertos) Please let me know in the comments below! Enjoy the one hour extra sleep. Fall back is the best!
