Christmas Update and Saying Goodbye to 2017

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. We had a blast on our end. It was very simple yet meaningful because we spent it with our families, both mine and my husband's. 

Our son does not look happy on most of the photographs because he can't stand waiting for the camera to click. You know, toddler. I don't know how other families do it. We tried that happy family beside the Christmas tree shot. Didn't work out the way we imagined it to be. So we let it go! 

But off cam Jarvis enjoyed himself. I really think he had a great Christmas. He got a lot of new clothes and shoes. We stuffed his Christmas sock with gifts but the retrieval of gifts didn't work out as I expected. He doesn't care which is totally okay. So I ended up retrieving all the gifts inside. He likes the toy car we gave him though. 

There were so many things to be thankful for this year. For one, I get to spend the majority of my time with my son which was very challenging but fulfilling at the same time. I learned so much as a mom and more in terms of caring for and understanding my toddler. We discovered Montessori this year and we tried to incorporate it into our daily lives. It was a sweet discovery and very helpful to my sanity. I am still learning. I have so many books waiting to be read. I hope I'll find the time next year. 

We are so grateful that everybody is healthy, happy and safe which what really matters right? I hope we'll get the same blessings next year! God is truly so generous to us!

There were few bumps on our road in 2017 but nothing we cannot overcome. God is always with us. I am so pumped to step up my work-from-home game. So send some prayers for success our way. I'll do the same for you!

Finally, I am grateful to the people who are reading my blog posts. I can't believe, I am truly back to blogging. I love that I have the freedom to write whatever I want and there are still people who take their time to read what I have to say. I have so much in store for this blog next year. So I hope you can still join me. 

I truly hope that you had a great 2017! May you have an even better 2018! Happy new year to you and your family! Thank you for being here!
