The Promise She Made

Good Night Bedtime Stories

Scary Dreams

A Mother’s Love

Hello Gigglelot Warriors. My name is Diane. I would like to take the time to dedicate this particular story to my mom Irene Ramirez since this was her story she loved to tell us kids growing up. I would also like to dedicate my stories, my BlogVlog Adventures, my website and my webpage to my sister Belen Murray and my nephew James (Tres) Murray the 3rd. This is my first attempt of story telling you my very own Creepy Pasta. I hope you enjoy reading this, so please sit back, relax and get comfortable. And let your imagination take control of you.

What I’m about to tell you is based on a true story. (Well that’s what I was told anyways.) Growing up, I use to hear my mom tell this tale. My mom loved telling stories. Scary stories to scare us before bedtime or to keep us under control whenever me and my siblings misbehaved. But this particular story was one of my favorites because it was sad and heartbreaking. This story was passed down through generation after generations. They were also friends of the family. Now do I believe that it happened? Yes I do. And the reason I believe it happened because it happened to my moms cousin years ago when my mom and her cousin were young women. Now that’s another story for another time. But it’s all the same concept it happened. Except in this particular case it’s a different situation, different people, and different time and place. This story however took place many, many years ago in a very small town in Mexico.

True Story
A Mother’s Love

As the story goes, there lived a small family in the poor side of town in Mexico. The young couple had two little girls. The eldest daughter Maria was six years old and the youngest Anna was four. Maria had long brown curly hair with dark brown eyes. Anna’s was also dark brown curly hair with light brown eyes. The family were very poor, but they were a very happy loving family. They all loved and cherished each other. They lived in a small house. It was a little farm with a cow and a few chickens. They didn’t have very much so the couple struggled a little that the father sometimes had to work in other nearby farms just to get by. It was very hard. However; this particular family wasn’t the only ones that suffered from poverty. It was common in Mexico’s small towns. Unfortunately many years later nothing of the economy has changed amongst the Mexican people in Mexico. People to this day still suffer in poverty.

Not really sure how old this young couple was when all this took place. The young fathers name was Pedro. He had dark brown eyes, short curly brown hair. His skin was dark from working out in the fields all day long in the hot sun. As exhausted as he always was when he came home. He always found time to enjoy family time. Pedro loved his beautiful wife Celia and their beautiful young daughters. Celia was very beautiful, light skinned with long brown wavy hair and light brown eyes. Celia was very kind and a loving wife and mother. They played games, they worked together and did everything together as a family. Of course as life goes. Sometimes somethings change. And change it did.

A Mother’s Love

One day the young mother suddenly fell ill. She got so sick that later she became confined to the bed. As the months progressed she got worse and worse that her health quickly declined. As it turned out she was dying. The young husband was devastated. He loved his wife, he couldn’t bare to live without her. And the children. How was he going to tell his young daughters that very soon their mother would die. On her death bed Celia made her husband Pedro promise her that he would take care of the little girls and that he wouldn’t abandon them. He promised his wife as she slipped away peacefully.

A Mother’s Love

A few months later after the young wife and mother died and was buried. The young father and his little girls were devastated and heartbroken. At first they visited her grave site almost everyday. But it was becoming to much for the young man to handle. The grief he felt was quite real, quite painful and so unbearable. The sad faces of his little girls made it worse especially as they looked so much like his beloved. Pedro felt that he couldn’t go on. So he buried himself in his work. He had to work more than ever now so he could be able to support his family. However; he also took to drinking. When his wife was alive he drank but not as much as he did now. He wanted to numb the pain. He drank so much sometimes that he would pass out. Sometimes he wouldn’t come home for days or the next day while leaving his frightened children at home by themselves. Sometimes Pedro even came home drunk that he spoke harshly to his young daughters. It was something that he’d never done before in his life when his wife was alive. He felt guilty. He was breaking his promise to his dead wife Celia. But he couldn’t help it.

A Mother’s Love

His job also took him away from home and with the passing of his wife. There was no one to take care of his children. He was gone all day. Morning, noon and night. By the time he got home and at the end of the day he was exhausted and tired. He was completely unaware of the situation at home. He couldn’t do it. He had to work to bring money into the house hold to pay for food for his family. It was a struggle but at the same time he felt relief because when he kept himself busy. By the time he got home he was too exhausted to remember his wife. But he also knew that what he was doing to his children wasn’t right either. He knew that he was neglecting his little girls.

A Mother’s Love

The little girls Maria and Anna were so neglected that they were dirty almost filthy all the time. They didn’t eat all day until their father came home in the evening. Then they would all eat together as a family. Their father tried his best. He even tried getting one of the neighbors to watch his little girls. But sometimes they couldn’t do it either because they had family’s of their own to take care of. So the little girls were left alone all day until their father came home from work. Their father Pedro would tell his daughters especially the eldest to not open the door to strangers. Only to people they knew. Then he was off to work leaving the girls home alone again. The girls were frightened being all alone. Especially at night when their father got drunk and sometimes didn’t come home. The girls were hungry, dirty and always cried for their mother to come back from heaven to take care of them. Sometimes they feared their dad would never come home and maybe have gone to heaven to be with their mom.

A Mother’s Love

The house was even dirty. Every now and then did a neighbor come by to cook and clean the house a bit and tried watching the girls. But sometimes it was just impossible. The farm houses or ranch homes that was their neighbors were far from each other. Even going to town or a nearby village was far away. So the house in which the girls lived in with their father was isolated. The area was surrounded by forests, lots of trees and wild animals.

A Mother’s Love

However the father did try to get the girls to stay with the neighbor until he got home. But to some families it was too much for them and sometimes the little girls father couldn’t afford to pay for someone to watch them. So eventually the little girls were back at being left alone all day for weeks.

A Mother’s Love

Then one day he came home and found the whole house clean from top to bottom. In the kitchen he found food prepared for him and the children. He also found his two little girls clean, bathed, combed, dressed and fed. And sitting on the sofa quietly waiting for him. He didn’t think anything of it at first and thought one of his neighbors had come over to check up on his girls and had done the good deed.

A Mother’s Love

As the days and weeks went by he kept finding the house cleaner, dinner prepared and his little girls dressed and cleaned. Their hair combed. The father wandered which neighbor was taking the time from their busy farm life to care for his home and children. He was indeed very great full and would later during the weekend go out and about and find out who it was so that he could thank them in person. He asked all around his neighbors that lived near him. No one didn’t seem to know who was coming over. Everyone in his neighborhood had not been to his house recently. Especially the women folk that lived near by. It couldn’t have been any other neighbor that lived far away. It would be impossible to travel in a horse and buggy that would take them all day to get to his home and do the house cleaning that also takes all day to do just to get home late themselves and if that were the case he and they would certainly pass each other down the road. As he continued to ask around a few other of his neighbors tried guessing who else it could be that was doing a nice thing for him and his family. And just told Pedro not to worry. Pretty soon someone is bound to come forward. An older woman and a neighbor of his who often looked after his children had asked him if his daughters knew who it was that was coming over. He answered no. That it never occurred to him to ask because he thought it was a neighbor but now he wasn’t sure. To no avail the young father gave up and went home and decided to ask his daughters who it was that was coming over to the house every day.

A Mother’s Love

As soon as he got home he immediately asked his little girls who was coming to the house to cook, clean and bathe them and comb and dress them. The little girls answered “Mama.” He was taken aback at the answer his daughters gave. He asked the eldest Maria that question again. To which she replied “Mama.” Anna just nodded her head in agreement. The young father almost broke down in tears. “No mija’s. No my daughters that is not so. Your Mama she is gone away to heaven. She is no longer with us. Please tell your papa the truth. Who has been coming to the house to take care of you and your sister?” Papa demanded to know.

A Mother’s Love

“But it’s true papa. Mama has been coming here to take care of us. You lied to us. You told us Mama has gone to heaven but she comes to us as soon as you leave for work papa,” Maria said, as she looked at her sister Anna. “Isn’t it true Anna that Mama comes to us everyday in the mornings and stays all day til Papa comes home.”

A Mother’s Love

“Yes papa it’s true what Maria says. Mama comes home to take care of us,” Anna said softly. After that the young man was still not convinced. Yes he felt very bad for what he did to his daughters and especially his dead wife. Because he had made a promise to her on her deathbed that he would take care of their children after she was gone. And he felt horrible for not keeping his promise and honoring her wishes.

A Mother’s Love

The more he thought about her the more he was convinced it might be someone else in his neighborhood and not his beloved. He just couldn’t believe that his wife was coming back from the dead. It just wasn’t possible. Even though Celia his dear wife was dead he still loved her and he missed her so much. But he decided to find out the truth for himself.

A Mother’s Love

The next morning he woke up early as usual and got ready for work. His little girls were already up and very excited because their mother was on the way soon. Pedro made breakfast for himself and the girls. And as usual told his children to behave and that he would be home soon. He also said that he would try his best to send one of the neighbors to the house to look after them. The little girl Maria simply said. “Don’t worry Papa. Mama will be here soon. She will take care of us.” Their father didn’t say anything but kissed his children goodbye. Then he walked out the door closing it behind him as he boarded his horse and buggy and rode away from the house. Except that today he wasn’t going to work he was going to find out what or whom was the person going to the house to take care of his children. Thinking about it brought chills down his spine. He quickly hid his horse and buggy behind a hillside with boulders that was a few feet away from his home. He quickly jumped off the wagon and ran to a boulder that was covered in bushes. It was perfect to hide behind because from there he could see his house very well. He could also see who was coming up the front door.

A Mother’s Love

The young man waited awhile but not for very long. Pedro could see someone coming from around the road that turned to his home. He saw a white figure approach his house. Pedro quickly crouched down so that he wouldn’t be spotted. As he looked he noticed and couldn’t believe his eyes. Tears forming in his eyes. It’s true. It’s true what his daughters were saying. It was his beloved, his dead wife, his Celia. She was wearing the clothes she was buried in. She had come back from the dead but it wasn’t right. She should be resting in peace and not still be here on earth. It was against all that is unholy. She must return to where she came. It was his fault he did not honor his wife’s wishes and now she was coming back to watch and take care of their children. He saw his children greet her outside the front door with excitement as his wife went into the house with them. He was still in disbelief, frightened and in shock when he stumbled out of his hiding place as he quickly went to the house. Could it really be his wife Celia? Or could it be an evil spirit! And now the thing or whatever it was is now inside alone with his daughters. This thought terrified Pedro even more.

A Mother’s Love

The young father Pedro got to the house but was hesitant and afraid to go in, but he knew he had to. He had to ask his wife Celia for forgiveness that is if it truly was her. If so then he had to send her restless spirit back to the grave where she belonged. It wasn’t right, it wasn’t natural. It was an abomination. Pedro slowly opened the door to his house and saw nothing at first. However; he heard noises coming from the kitchen. He immediately saw his children sitting at the breakfast table. Then he saw her. His beloved wife Celia. She was washing the dishes. She turned to face him. It was his dead wife alright. She looked ghostly pale. Her eyes looked painfully devastated and concerned. Then Pedro knew in his heart and soul that it was the spirit of his precious wife Celia and not something evil. “What are you doing here? You are not supposed to be here!” The young husband said. “I am here because my daughters need me. They cry for me every day and every night that I can’t rest. You made a promise to me and you didn’t keep it. So now I must come here to take care of them.” The young man knew what his wife was saying was the truth. “Yes it is true I did make you a promise to take care of our daughters and I am so sorry for that. Please forgive me my love. I love you and I still miss you everyday.” “I love you and I miss you and my girls too, but I can’t rest until I know that my daughters will be taken care of properly,” Celia had told her husband, Pedro who was shedding a few tears down his cheeks.

A Mother’s Love

After that day he made his wife Celia, his daughters and to himself another promise, that he wouldn’t ever, never neglect his children again. And he also promised his wife that he would be a better father to the children. Their children. He told her that she needed to go back and Rest In Peace. And not to worry about her daughters. That from here on out. He would keep his new promise and would take care of their children. His wife Celia agreed and said to him. “As long as you keep your promise to take care of our little girls, you won’t ever see me again here on earth.” Then she left the house and as she walked down the road and turned to wave goodbye to her family for the last time she turned to walk away and disappeared. She was never seen again after that. Pedro kept his promise and his daughters grew up healthy and happy and had families of their own. The girls and their father never forgot the experience of what had happened to them all those years ago. However; they knew it was A Mother’s Love and The Promise She Made that saved them all.

A Mother’s Love

Ok Gigglelot Warriors. That is the end of my Creepy Pasta story. My first ever. I was saving this story for Halloween, but I couldn’t wait to post this right away. I also hope you noticed my love child my Gigglelotbird in the drawings. I actually drew the pictures myself. I used Procreate. I totally love the app. I think it’s totally groovy. And I think it’s worth the price. One time purchase of $9.99. I apologize for not drawing any eyes. I always find it difficult to draw them. I hope you enjoyed the story. It was a very sad story and one of my favorites. Also as I said before it was based on true events. I was told growing up that my great, great grandmother knew these people that it happened to. And something similar happened again when my mom was a young woman. I know I said I would save this story for another time but I’ll tell it real quick. My mother had a cousin named Grace who had gotten married and had a baby but died from childbirth and her baby died as well. They were both buried together. My mom said that her cousins mother Aunt Elizabeth cried for her dead daughter Grace and her dead baby everyday for weeks. Everyone in the family was trying to comfort her and told her that her daughter Grace needed to Rest In Peace. But Graces mother Elizabeth couldn’t stop crying. She missed her daughter terribly. Then one day the whole family were sitting on the porch late afternoon. And as usual Graces mother started crying. Then all of a sudden out of nowhere the daughter Grace appeared. She quickly walked up towards the house and begged her mom to stop crying for her because she couldn’t Rest In Peace. Her mother, her sisters and including my mom saw her. They were all in shock and speechless. They also swear that Grace carried the dead baby in her arms. After that her mother made her dead daughter a promise that she wouldn’t cry for her anymore. Soon after that ghostly visit she left and disappeared. Grace was never seen again. My mom swore to that story that it actually happened. Unfortunately my mom passed away in 2007. I miss her everyday. I love you mom.

So! What do you Gigglelotbirds think? Did it really happened? Do you believe it happened? Please let me know in the comments below and tell me what you think or believe. Also let me know what you think of my story and if you like it and if you wish to read more stories like this. I’m also going to post this story on my YouTube channel and my Podcast channel. I will give an update and a link to both my channels as soon as I post them.

Hello world!

Had I known what I had gotten myself into when I signed up for this. I would have used it everyday, but I didn’t know what it really was. I didn’t know any better. So here I am writing a blog I started eight years ago. Honestly I don’t even remember much of what happened that year. But for now I’ll leave it as it is. Oh my nephew Tres wasn’t even born yet. I didn’t know that I would have an awesome nephew. A surprise and a blessing.

Happy New Year 2011

Hello Gigglelotbirds, this is Diane. Welcome back to my BlogVlog Adventures website. If you’ve been checking out my website or reading my stories. I’m sure you’ve probably come across my Cozy Crochets blankets, hats and scarves created by me and my family.

Cozy Crochets Collections
Baby Blanket

In today’s story I am Introducing Cozy Crochets to my BlogVlog Adventures website. I guess I should have done that from the beginning because it is part of my brand, my line of what is to come in the future. I take pride in what I create.

I’ve been doing all kinds of crafts, projects and DIYs since forever. I’ve just never showcased them before until now on my website. In the past I’ve always been shy and embarrassed to display my work. So those feelings go away once you establish your niche. I also feel that having your own business and you’re own website and you can just about post anything you want. Nothing too crazy but my work that I’ve worked very hard on. My Art work. And it is Art. To some it might not be Art.

Cozy Crochets

However; like every other artist out there. It takes a lot of blood, sweat and tears to perfect and hone your talent. It’s also time consuming and the materials are not cheap but very expensive. Especially if you want to create the very best that will last a lifetime.

So here I am Introducing my next line of blankets to Cozy Crochets franchise. My franchise. And here it is my other blankets that I’ve crocheted a few years ago. And I will be adding to the Cozy Crochets Collection. They were very popular among my family and friends. They loved my work. Also according to them it was unique in the way I crocheted them. I don’t think it was but if my style pleased them then I am happy that I found my signature.

This is another blanket I crocheted and gave away as a birthday present for a dear friend of mine I worked with for years. She loved the blankets I made and the colors I used. So I thought “What would be a perfect gift to give her?” and so I made the blanket pictured down below.

Gigglelotbird67

Spring Pastel Garden

Believe me at the time when I crocheted the blankets I did my research on the Internet and found nobody crocheted like I did. I’m not sure about today although I again did the research and still have not found anyone crocheting like I do. It was very hard but again I had to continue to do it til I perfected and honed the crocheted project how I wanted it to look like. It wasn’t easy but in the end it was done and the results were beautiful.

One of the blankets Donna’s Meadow’ I call it my signature blanket. What makes it my signature blanket is the huge flower I sew in the center. It is pictured down below. I have also crocheted two other blankets like this before to family members years ago and they loved it and they still have them today. One blanket was in purple and white colors with a huge white daisy in the center blanket and the other was in orange and white colors with also a huge white daisy in the center. Unfortunately I don’t have any pictures to post but the blankets do exist and are in great condition today. Those blankets are just as beautiful as the one in the photo below.

My Signature Blanket
Donna’s Meadow

I learned to crochet at a young age by my mother. She was very talented and a perfectionist. It was hard and very difficult at first because my mom wasn’t a very patient person. I always messed up the yarn or tangled it.

Gigglelotbird67

Donna’s Meadow

However; I did manage to learn the techniques of crocheting but I felt it was just to hard and I thought I could never be as good as my mom’s. So I gave up and stopped altogether. My mom tried to convince me to continue but I just couldn’t. She also tried her best to teach me a little in Quilting and sewing. And I did pick up a few things on that technique as well, but crocheting became my most favorite.

A few years had past that I decided I wanted to crochet again. So I did the best to remember what my mom had taught me all those years ago. My mother could no longer show me again because she had gotten sick and couldn’t do anything with her hands and fingers anymore. She couldn’t even hold a crochet stick. It was very hard and very heart breaking sad to see that.

Cozy Crochets Collections

So I just figured I would teach myself the rest because what my mom had taught me had come tumbling back to me in my memories. Back in the day we didn’t have YouTube tutorial videos like we do today. So I had to go to the library or a book store and purchase one of those crochet kits. And start my own personal courses and taught myself.

The rest is history. Since than I was able to crochet the most beautiful blankets I never thought I would be able to crochet. I still think I’m not as good as my mom. However; I am happy to say that my mom got to see my work and she loved it and was very proud of me.

Cozy Crochets Collection
Donna’s Meadow

My mom since has passed away in 2007. I miss her so much and every day. I always think about her when I’m crocheting something. The blankets or whatever that I crochet are my mom’s Legacy. I also dedicate this page to my mother, because if it wasn’t for her and her teachings. I would never had continued this journey, of the world of crocheting.

Our Beautiful Mother
Irene

She gave me a part of her talent that hopefully I passed on to my sister and my nieces. And hopefully after I’m gone. My mom’s legacy will continue to grow and flourish within our family. The only thing that my mother and I do regret is not knowing how to Knit. However; I am trying to learn that art skill. It is hard and frustrating to me. But I’m sure they’re are a lot of talented knitters out there. And I hope and wish that one day I will become one as well.

Hello Gigglelotbirds this is Diane. Welcome back to my BlogVlog Adventures website. I would love to introduce to you my other Cozy Crochets to the yarn family. A baby blanket I crocheted years ago. It was my first baby blanket at the time. I can’t remember what year I crocheted the baby blanket. But it was a few years before my nephew Tres was born.

I loved the colors that I put together. The blanket itself is strong and durable yet warm and soft to the touch. Then a few years later when my nephew Tres was born. My sister was able to use it on him. My nephew is seven years old today going on eight this month. That baby blanket is more than seven years old. As you can see in the photos, it practically still looks brand new.

The Cozy Crochets that I make are all done by hand and by me or by someone in my family. I use the very best yarn and I make sure that it’s the type of yarn that will last a life time. Sometimes projects like these and depending on what type and size of blankets, scarves, hats or whatever it is that I’ll be crocheting. Will take months, weeks or a couple of days to crochet. And again it depends on what it is and the size.

Also projects like these take up a lot of time, and money. You Ladies and Gentlemen know exactly what I’m talking about if you do it yourself or if you know someone that does. As for me I simply love it. It is relaxing and I come up with more ideas on what to crochet next. Or on any other projects I’m working on. I even crocheted a matching pillow to go with it but unfortunately I no longer have it. I believe I sold it or gave it away as a gift.

However; if you are interested in purchasing this baby blanket. I’ll be happy to crochet one for you. Just leave a comment down below and let me know and I’ll be happy to speak with you and discuss prices for this particular blanket or any other Cozy Crochets you’ve seen on my website.

Cozy Crochets

Hello Gigglelotbirds this is Diane and welcome back to my BlogVlog Adventures website. January and February have come and gone and we’re now in March. The winter hasn’t gone away the way we thought it would. It feels like it’s planning to stick around a little longer. Which means we still can not put away our winter hats, scarves and coats just yet. Jack Frost is still nipping at our nose.

So as I’ve said once before on another post that I would post more pictures of the projects of handmade crochets that we have been working very hard on. My niece Rachel actually crocheted some beautiful cozy hats. They are beautifully made and very durable but yet comfy and soft.

Rachel crocheted more hats than what I posted and she sold them already. But don’t worry, she is working on crocheting more cozy hats and scarves in the near future. And I will post and update on that another time.

Rachel’s Cozy Hats

This next photo is my absolute favorite. I mean I love them all but this one takes the cake, and it is very thick, soft and all around cozy. The hat and scarf comes as a set. Rachel did an excellent job with this set. The beautiful colors she chose goes with any outfit.

As you can see in the photos above. Rachel’s Winter Storm looks and feels comfortable and they are. It’s made with the best yarn money can buy. Like any Artist, when we crochet we use nothing but the best material that’s very well made.

The rest of the Cozy hats are previews of what is to come in the future. More cozy hats, scarves, blankets, and so much more. And I am very excited about that.

Even though I’ve said they were just previews. However; if you are interested in purchasing one of these items that I have showcased. And if you are interested in a Cozy hat or the Golden Shimmer scarf or Rachel’s Winter Storm set. Please let me know in the comments below.

On Pluto Now The Uninvited

Drive-In Reviews

Movie Life
Drive-In Reviews

The Uninvited made its debut January 30, 2009. It was based on Kim Jee-Woon’s 2003 Korean horror film. A story of two sisters returning home to their father from a mental institution, whose recovery is hindered by their cruel stepmother.

The cast and crew of the 2009 movie did a wonderful job putting this cinema together. Very mind blowing with surprising twist in the end. The two young actresses starting with the eldest who plays Alex (Arielle Kebbel) reminds me of Megan Fox while the young actress who plays Anna (Emily Browning) reminds me of a very young Shannon Doherty. These two lovely young ladies did a great job in performance to the screen. In fact everyone did. I think it was very well made and straight to the point. I felt there was action from the start and all the way through the end. I hope you enjoy this movie as much as I did. And if you haven’ seen it, I suggest you go watch it now.

In this horror film The Uninvited is about two sisters who live with their father but the girls mother is very sick and dying. The nurse they hire to take care of the mother, though it seems, is up to no good. I won’t go into details just incase you haven’t seen it. All I can say is I loved the movie when I first saw it on Netflix. And I’ve since seen it a billion times and I haven’t gotten tired of it. It has since joined my army of favorite movies I have bought and own or downloaded. And I will certainly download it. Unfortunately it has been taken off the Netflix library but happy to say that it is now showing on Pluto.

I’m not sure if you’ve heard of Pluto https://apps.apple.com/us/app/pluto-tv-live-tv-and-movies/id751712884 but let me tell you. It is the best app around. It also has its own library of movies to choose from and they’re always adding new titles to it. Unfortunately they have commercials but it is free and new channels are also always being added as well. Please go check it out. You won’t regret it.

A Video Tutorial For Tres School Assignment

My Social Life In Social Media

The Network Life
My Social Life In Social Media

Hello Gigglelotbirds this is Diane. Welcome back to my BlogVlog Adventures website. In todays story my nephew Tres was given a school assignment to do a video for a school project. It was to be a short video tutorial on whatever the child wanted to do. Then once it was filmed he or she was to explain the process of how it was done.

Tres decided that his video tutorial would be on how to make “A Grilled Cheese Sandwich.” Both versions of the videos were put together and uploaded to our YouTube channel Gigglelotbird67. Please go and check it out and subscribe. These videos were filmed in January 26th and the 27th of 2020.

My sister Belen who’s also the mother of this adorable little boy filmed the two versions. The video was to be three minutes long but the first video was four minutes long. So they decided to film a second video which hit the mark and also made the cut. His teacher Ms. Nancy Noone loved it and made a grilled cheese sandwich.

While I was editing the video even I craved one. We also got a few commenters that actually made and ate a grilled cheese sandwich. My baby sure knows how to sell good food.

What I love about his school is that his teacher’s want their students to be creative and use their imaginations to their full potential. Tres has learned and developed so much than I ever did when I was his age.

I am so proud of my nephew and so is his momma and daddy. Tres is also very sweet, kind and caring. He also has a very good heart. I pray that God continues to bless him always and everyday.

Making Quick Enchiladas In Minutes

Cooking In The Kitchen With Diane And Belen

Hello Gigglelotbirds. This is Diane coming at you once again with another one of my BlogVlogs. This time it is about Cooking In The Kitchen with Diane and Belen. I hope you enjoy reading this and watching my blogvlog post and I will be adding the quick fast and easy recipe.

Photo taken by Diane McAdams

In my family we love to cook up a storm and we love to use our moms and grandma’s old recipe’s. However; sometimes it takes all day just to prepare what will be gone in minutes once your entire family devours it. Sometimes moms work all day and is to be expected to cook once they are home. So sometimes we have to take the short cut that only takes minutes til the food your cooking or baking is done, but it’s still delicious and fulfilling.

So down below I have posted pictures and ingredients of the recipe of what you will need to get started.

The Recipe:

The Ingredients:

One large pan, Vegetable oil, Flour, Salt, Chili powder, one pack of taco seasoning, one pack of corn tortillas, and Shredded cheese or the squares or both.

One large pan for the enchiladas to bake in
Pour half cup of oil
Half cup of flour to make the roux
Add chili powder for taste
Add salt for taste
Add one whole pack of taco seasoning
My favorite corn tortillas Mission
My favorite brand of shredded cheese Crystal Farms
Kraft Cheese or Borden’s whichever you prefer
Photo taken by Diane McAdams

Heat large pan, pour half cup of oil, and about half cup of flour to make the roux. You mix both together til it starts to brown. You can add more oil and flour because you’ll want to make enough roux which is the start of making the enchilada sauce.

Add chili powder for taste and add about 2 cups of water, add salt for taste, add 1 whole pack of Taco seasoning. Stir until it’s the consistency you want.

This is the recipe for the enchilada sauce.

Mix the ingredients together til it starts to brown

As you can see it is coming together smoothly

Now it’s ready

Then just put it together as you see in the pictures below. It won’t take long to bake in the oven. Just preset your oven at 350 degrees. It should take about 30 minutes or until golden brown for the enchiladas to be ready. I have a video for this that I have posted on YouTube and I will post it here as well.

Take the corn tortillas and dip it in the sauce

Make sure the corn tortillas are covered in sauce from front and back

Than place them as you see here in the picture above in a large tin foil pan Photo taken by Diane McAdams
Put everything together

After that put the pan in the preheated 350 degrees oven

And in about 30 minutes or until golden brown dinner is served

This is a very quick and easy way to make fast Enchiladas. A favorite Mexican dish that my mom and grandma use to make but the hard way, by scratch. I have a video of Cooking in the Kitchen with my sister, Belen on my YouTube channel Gigglelotbird67.

As for the sides just use instant rice any favorites you have will do just fine. Just follow their directions and it should be ready in minutes to enjoy eating with the enchiladas. Or you can make it by scratch, which ever is easiest and fastest.

Use instant rice of your favorite choice that will be ready in minutes
Or cook it by scratch
Don’t forget to add these vegetables to your rice if you make it by scratch

My New Year’s Resolution is Gigglelotbird67

Welcome to the Roaring 20’s Gigglelotbirds and a Happy New Year!!!
I hope everyone had a wonderful time during the holidays in 2019. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years was incredible because we celebrated with our loved ones. We’re also very excited that we reached a new decade.

A Brand New Decade

I am blessed to still be alive and well to see a new decade this 2020. Everyday seems to bring something new and alive within me and I feel so rejuvenated and ready to start fresh. I will be uploading a new video. My first one ever for 2020.

This year I will be more consistent in creating more content. I have so much to create. I have been working hard at it in 2019 and I believe I have arrived. In 2020 I will bring so much into my business, my world and for my family. I am so totally excited. I also plan on doing some giveaways. I have mentioned that before and I haven’t forgotten about it. I haven’t put anything together yet but believe me I am working hard at it with the help of my family. I will let you know. Details coming soon.

Ok Gigglelotbirds check out my new video for this decade. I hope you like it. Let me know what you think in the comments.

A New Decade for the Roaring 20’s

I will be previewing and showcasing a few pictures on the projects I’m currently working on at the moment. I also plan on selling them on my website. So here are a few pictures down below. Let me know what you think of my blanket. Donna’s Meadow.

This is my signature blanket Donna’s Meadow

So far this is just a preview of the blanket that I have made. I love to crochet and this is what I love to do when I’m not busy doing other projects. Crocheting helps me relax and create more new ideas. Later in the near future I will be displaying other items I have crocheted. I also have other crocheted items to show case that my niece Rachel has done as well. She’s very talented. My sister Belen has crocheted a few blankets and she’s a whiz at it.

So yes I guess you can call this my New Year’s Resolution. And that is to work hard and make my dreams come true. As always Gigglelotbirds have a great day, have a great year. From our family to yours. God bless. MuWah!!!

Gotta Love Target Unboxing Great Deals

My Social Life In Social Media

Hello Gigglelotbirds this is Diane with another review and another video. In this showcase I am showing you the LED lights that came in so many different colors and different designs. I wrote about this already on my other BlogVlog page called Gotta Love Target Unboxing Great Merch which is part one and part two video was called Gotta Love Target Unboxing Great Bargains. If you haven’t already seen them please go and check them out.

Target my favorite store to shop

So in this next installment of my BlogVlog review I am just basically showing you a quick glance at one of Targets Merch. These LED lights are from room essentials and sold at Target. I’ve always loved room essentials and I own a few of these items myself and I put them to great use. They run on I believe three double A batteries. They are very sturdy and last long. I bought mines a year ago and they are still going strong. They also make perfect gifts.

Thumbnail for my YouTube channel

I am not sponsored by Target or anyone. These reviews I make are my own. I also actually bought these LED lights with my own money. I didn’t get anything for free. With that being said. Everything that I have put on video and on my Blog page has been real and honest to goodness.

Thanks again Gigglelotbirds for watching and reading. I hope you enjoy the rest of the week. Please don’t forget to follow us on social media.
