December 2015 In Review

It's been two weeks since we welcome 2016 but let me share how was my or our December 2015 was.

December has been and always been the busiest month for most of us. Preparation for Christmas Parties, holiday shopping, gift wrapping, and last minute preparation for holidays at home are just some things that make most of us busy. Here are some of the things that make us busy last month.

Spelling Contest
Matthew represents their school in the APRISM’s Academic Contest in Spelling Pre-Elementary Category. He luckily landed on 9th place out of 18 private schools in Marilao.

Christmas Party
Our Department had a separate celebration.  It has been a tradition that starting the “Ber” months, every payday will give a contribution to be used in buying our food. This year, instead of having the exchange gift, we chipped in 100 bucks to buy groceries as prizes for the raffle. By this, everyone will have something to take home.

Our company held its Christmas Party just before typhoon Nona arrived. On the day of the party,  it was raining but we are still lucky because at night before the celebration started, the rain stopped. By the way, I was tasked to make an inspirational message so I deliver the story of “The Good Corn”.

I was also able to attend Matthew’s Christmas Party. Unlike last year, we let her Yaya accompany him in school.

DIY’s and Home Fixing
We did some home fixing in our living room last month, new curtains (using JML Sewing Machine) which I made just in time for before the New Year’s Eve, a mirror on the wall, additional foam with covers in the sofa and others.

Having the new Bosch Impact Drill-DIY Tool Set is really worthy.

And here is our living room. I think we need repainting naman next time.

Noche Buena and Media Noche
One of the most awaited time of December is the Noche Buena and Media Noche. Mommy and I prepared a simple arrangement for our table.

Though December is the busiest month, this is also the most blessed of the year and we should be thankful for all the blessings that we received. I know in 2016, more blessings will be coming. 

How was your December 2015?
