Delicious Cinnamon rolls

April 23 in the morning. I woke up early and prepare some brunch, it was a surprise birthday party for my hubby. I baked him a delicious cinnamon rolls and some of his favorite food. He was in the shower when our friends and family arrived. I am so grateful that my hubby was really surprise for this party and all the food are delicious. I want to share the recipe of cinnamon rolls that I got from Betty Crocker's COOKBOOK.

1/2 cup of lukewarm milk
1/3 cup of sugar

3 1/2 to 4 cups all purpose flour

Dissolve yeast in warm water in 2 1/2 quart bowl. Stir in milk, sugar,shortening,salt,eggs and 2 cups of the flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to make dough easy to handle. Turn onto lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic ,about 5 minutes. Place in greased 2 1/2 quart bowl; turn greased side up. Cover; let rise in warm place until double, about 1 1/2 hours.

Before I give birth

My friend Wendy and Billy are so excited to see the baby, we thought that I have a normal delivery so I wanted my best friend to be there, but when the doctor said for C section, my friend couldn't go to the operating room. Anyway here are some of the photo.

The 4th of november

Before i give birth

Mark with kylie at 10:25 pm

I'm so excited to give birth but at the same time, I'm scared about the pain of giving birth. I think because in the Philippines I saw a lot of women shouting during their labor. But in the states is very different because they have Epidural that will make you relax. All you have to do is to push when the doctor told you to push. I thank God that I give birth here, and the doctor is super nice, they have the best nurses who will take care of you 24 hours. I never expect for C-section, that time, I labor for 13 hours but no progress since they gave me the epidural, the doctor was so worried something will happen to me. Everything is very slow, so the doctor asked my husband for C-section. My husband, my mother in law and my brother in law with his wife were there and my best friend, they are very supportive to me. I'm so blessed and feel loved.
The operations take 30 to 45 minutes then I heard kylie's first cry :). During the operations I was shaking because of the medicine, my husband was so worried about me. He's trying to smile and encourage me, he always say that he's very proud of me and that I'm very brave. So I give birth to Kylie on 4th of november at 10:15 pm. Indeed God is faithful! He gave us a baby girl, 6'15 pounds, 19 and 1/2 inches. We are so blessed to have her in our life, Kylie Elizabeth is such a big blessing to us!

I'm back!

I thank God that after 6 months of our marriage, I was conceive. But I prayed to God almost everyday that He will give us a child and now I'm waiting for days to give birth. Indeed God is faithful. Last september 18 we celebrated our 1st year Anniversary at Utah. 2 days ago I turned 33 and the next day it was my mother's birthday. Wow! days are so fast. We are looking forward to celebrate thanksgiving with our baby Kylie Elizabeth. I thank God for all the blessings that we receive this year!
My husband is a big blessing to me,I never regret that I got married at the age of 31 because God gave me the right person.

God is full of surprises :)!

Church Wedding

To all my followers, thank you so much for your patients for me :)... It's hard for me to update my blog because we're so busy preparing our Church wedding, starting January this year. Anyway, it's not easy to plan your ideal wedding. There are times that I couldn't sleep during the night, thinking what will happen on April 4'09, but I thank God that He answered prayers. I thank God for the safe travelling of all our friends from different states who join our Church Wedding and His presence during the ceremony,receptions. Indeed God is Amazing when you are going to lay down everything to Him. He is faithful!

Here are some of the photos taken during our Church wedding. Thank you Kuya Will for taking all of these photos, until now we haven't heard anything from our photographer.
