On the 25th Day of Christmas, Blessings All Around

Christmas morning was, of course, a bit chaotic with our two boys opening gifts and emptying stockings. We did pause to greet each other "Merry Christmas" and to remember, "Jesus is the reason for the season".

Our 5 year old Jelo got what he loves the most, notebooks and books. He received a few versions of the Dude Diary which has endless pages of dude-like writing prompts and drawing suggestions. He also got a few notebooks: a monogrammed one, one with his picture on the cover, a Mickey Mouse one, and even an Angry Birds one. Our Jelo loves writing and storytelling so Santa and his friends got his gifts right.

Our 3 year old DJ loves Mattel Disney Micro Drifters. He collects the mini-cars and was super excited to get the cars that are still missing from his collection. He even got a cool carrying case that doubles as a race track.

Santa brought me a super cute knitted Sanrio cupcake scarf! I got lots of likes on my Instagram post!

The rest of the day was filled with people we love, sharing God's blessings with one another!

This Christmas season, we are very thankful to our parents for helping care for our boys all year long. With my husband and I both working, we've never had to worry about daycare because our parents were more than willing to take care of our boys for us. They have been selfless and so generous in helping care for our boys. So this Christmas, we pray special blessings for our parents and a BIG THANK YOU for all they do.

Merry Christmas to all my readers! I wish you the love of friends and family as we have been so fortunate to be blessed with everyday of our lives!
