Goodbye 2010, Hello 2011

Though we have experienced some problems this year, 2010 has been a good one for us, better than 2008 and 2009 (Yes, 2008 is the 'best' year for us because Antonio was born that year...but we have experienced a lot and I mean a lot of trials that year...).

Major Highlights:
Jan 2010 - I resigned from office work and became a full time work at home mom.
April 2010 - Arch, Antonio and I went to Bohol for a vacation
June 2010 - Arch and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary in Subic (of course, with Antonio)
October 2010 - my sister graduated from college
November 2010 - 2nd birthday of Antonio
December 2010 - my sister started working

I am praying for good health and more blessings for our family this coming year. Looking forward to 2011! =)

Happy New Year Everyone!

Homemade wrapper

I thought of making homemade Christmas wrappers to be used to wrap the gifts for our immediate family. However, I have been busy busy days before the 24th so we only did 2 activities which were used for 6 gifts (gifts for my family lang).

When Arch saw the finished product, he said we should have used homemade wrappers na rin for all our gifts. I told him, I just tried it kasi baka naman di magustuhan ni Antonio yung activity or baka di maganda yung dating sa kraft paper. I was wrong!!! So definitely, we will do this again next year! =)

Happy 25 months!

So I will not forget his milestones, I will still document them monthly (hopefully!)

Antonio's milestones

Merry Christmas!

Last December 24, we had lunch at Arch's dad.

After wards, we went to my family to spend Christmas Eve there. My brothers and their families were there during merienda and dinner.

December 25 morning, Antonio opened his giftssssss (at my parents' house and at our house).

Here's our family picture before we went to Marikina to have Christmas merienda with Arch's lolo (father side).

Merry Merry Christmas! Hope you had a wonderful and meaningful one! =)

Symphony of Parols and Wee Nam Kee

Good thing that the Symphony of Parols at Ayala Triangle Gardens has weekend schedules. Since I am working from home and my husband's office is in Commonwealth (and with the Christmas traffic as well), it would be impossible for us to go to Makati on a weekday.

Last Saturday, we arrived at the place at 545pm. We first reserved a table at Wee Nam Kee. Since we were number 11 in the list, we told the waitress that we will just catch the 6pm show and we will just go back. Our 15-minute wait was so worth it. We really enjoyed the show! This is highly recommended for families =)

After the show, we went back to Wee Nam Kee. Apparently, we were called na daw so we have to wait a little bit more. Like the Light Show, the wait to get a table at Wee Nam Kee was so sulit! =) It was kinda expensive but the food was so yummy! =) We will definitely go back! =)

Antonio and his Jigsaw Puzzles

I think he was able to complete the puzzle less than a week after he started playing with them...and he does this activity everyday after that. Haha!

*Sorry, he was kind of distracted by the tv. I cannot turn it off kasi lalo nyang di gagawin yung puzzle. Haha!
