How time flies


Patricia and Tiffany in 2001
Tiffany is 3 months older and is much taller for age too.


Patrick and Keith in 2001

These are my kids first playmates in Canada... they live in the building next to ours, they migrated almost the same time as we did and they are in the same age range. Me and their mom just hit it off too.


Meet the Watts', they are from Pakistan.
They were 5 and 2-year olds then...

Above picture was taken at the Christmas party organized by the Westhill Community Center in 2002!

You might ask why they don't look like most people from Pakistan, well, it is because their mom is from Pakistan but their dad is European. And they both look like their dad.


Look at how much they've grown! This picture was taken last week when they came to visit and bid us "bon voyage."

I wanted to scraps these photos but just didn't have the time... I miss my scrapping!

Yeah you are right, time flies really quick. It's nice to keep those photos of them. Pictures are great remembrance for our children.

Ang smile naman ni Patrick nuon at ngaun ay ganun rin, talagang si Patrick talaga.

Thanks for sharing these photos.

Hi Raquel,
Patrick didn't change much through the years, though Patricia's face did change.

Hi Cess,
We are relocating to Calgary.

Hi Linnor,
Thanks!

Hi Evi,
We were neighbors in Scarborough for almost 2 years. They still live in the same place since then. Kami naman moving to our 3rd home in Canada soon.

Hi Ghee,
Yup. Though they rarely see each other since we moved to Mississauga. But when they saw each other last week, it was like they were never apart.

Hi Junnie,
I'm actually convincing them to try out Calgary too... and hopefully we could become neighbors there [again]!

Hi Fenny,
Thanks! You know me, a picture freak! ",)

Yes, time really flies. I'm sometimes surprised how time can move on so quickly. Photos are like time capsules. They will always remind us of the fun and memorable times.

Brony said...

Very cute photos.

JO said...

Hi Gracita, Ethel, and Brony,
Thanks!

Hi Rach,
Yes, that is why it is very important for me to carry my digicam everytime I go out.

The photos reminds me when I have my children. Ang liit pa nila non, naka pony tail or naka tirintas ang buhok. Ngayon, lola na ang mga dating, naka rebond, naka uso bag at damit...
Haay, masarap pa nong maliliit sila, pede mo pa i tali ang buhok the way you want. Ngayon, mama mia, ayaw na ng old fashion...
Ahh, kids are always fun to remember. They are lovely. And innocent...

Such beautiful children - and how they've grown!

We've had the same comments about my siblings here. Papa and I were looking at their albums one time and time just flies so fast. Me dalaga na naman si Papa and of course, the 2 younger ones are growing even bigger than me (vertically)! LOL!

When I saw MH's nephews and nieces last Saturday, nasabi ko na lang sa sarili ko na ang bilis nilang lumaki! Pati si Basti, ang laki na rin ng nilaki nya. I have to prepare myself for that time when I would have to slowly let him go and be his own self. I actually dread the thought but of course, he has his own life to live when that time comes.

Good luck on your move! I'm sure everything will be all right for all of you!

JO said...

Hi Francesca,
If we can only keep them at this age forever.. hahaha

Hi Liz,
Speaking of nieces and nephews, I haven't seen mine since 2002... I'm sure dalagita at binatilyo na sila ngayon... Thanks!

Tani said...

ang saya naman... they have childhood friends. :)

JO said...

Hi Tani,
Yes, but it could be the last time they saw them for a long long time...
