The Star This Season

Our 3-day weekend brought all the sweat, stiff muscles and aching back, arms and neck out of the esposo and me. I think it was the busiest holiday in our lives so far, to think that what made us busy was not even holiday related. I actually cannot think of how to squeeze-in Christmas shopping at 1st but I thankfully did (only for inaanaks though). It was too tiring but at the same time fulfilling.
This year we thought that instead of buying ornaments for Christmas like we initially planned, we opted to divert the money for a long-term use, like paint. We painted the house’s fence and façade. It took us 4 half days to finally finish it, squeezing-in household chores in between. So bad I forgot to take a picture of our hard work.
Aside from the painting job, I was able to de-clutter the playroom too. I needed to do that to fit-in the anticipated new batch of toys. The old toys will be donated to Jollibee MaAga Ang Pasko drive, I already talked to Uno about this and she didn’t even argue. Good girl she really is.
Christmas tree update: This is how the tree looks now: 
Since we didn't buy new ornaments and lights, it was not really far from how it looked before.

But I love every few small details it had. I loved the idea of groupings, next year I think I'll use this concept again (if ever we think of investing on ornaments).

And just look at my creation. The bow, bow (baw)!

Of course the star this season is the family.



  1. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family! I just realized I didn't put up a tree at our marital home. Haha. Garlands lang at Christmas balls ang naikabit naming mag-asawa last, last week. I guess Christmas is really different when you have bulilits around. :)

    1. hahaha.. As opposed to us, we only had that semi-kalbong tree. Masabi lang na may Christmas decor, and true enough para sa mga bagets lang. Nilalabas ko palang yung ibang decors, tinatamad na ko come ligpitan time, kaya binalik ko din lahat without setting up. :)

  2. Nice post, things explained in details. Thank You.
