Today is my first Christmas day in US. It was tiring but very fun and happy. Many from my friends in our country said that Christmas here in US is not that exciting and happy but I think it's not. Maybe it is not true in all circumstances...yes, my family are not here and I miss them a lot but Christmas here is as happy as we have in our Country. In the family of my husband, they have exchange gifts, games, reading from the Bible and prayer too...I dont have to forget...of course the refreshments afterwards...
I Thank God so much for giving me a family here that is so much the same with my family in our Country. They are very supportive, loving and very caring. I have received gifts today but to have them is one of the greatest gifts I thank God so much. I will never forget this day...a day filled with laughter and joy... a day filled with love and care. Glory be to God.

Yesterday and today, I commit my time in cleaning the house as preparation for the Christmas Day. Of course I clean the house regularly but it will be more thorough this time. It is because tomorrow will be very special day for me and my husband because our special guests will be my husbands family. They will be spending their Christmas day with us. I am excited and very happy about it and so the previous days, we bought things that we will be needing like items for games, gifts and of course the ingredients we need for the refreshments. I started cleaning around 9 this morning and hopefully I will be done this noon. After that, I will be busy baking and making some Christmas Cookies. I hope that all of you guys are happy and filled with Gods love and peace in your hearts and homes. Again, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I was raised and lived most of my life in a warm Country. We have just two seasons...the rainy and the summer season. And this winter, specially on the first day of snow fall, I was so excited and happy like a little kid seeing the snow. I wish my friend Michelle is with me that we can go out and play with the snow. But I'm alone at home so I just enjoyed the snow watching falling down through our window. In the afternoon, I decided to go out and got some pictures. I like the new environment...everywhere is white. I still have difficulty with the cold but not much anymore and maybe next year, it will be much easier for me.
It's been a long time that I wasn't able to update my blog. I've been busy looking and applying for job. I had a good time too of spending most of my time with my husband, our family and friends. And yes! I don't have to forget...I have been busy with the new business we have. We are still setting up this time and don't you worry. I will update you about things on our business. I miss reading and visiting blogs...and hopefully, I can this time around again. I am doing great so do with my husband and we pray that all of you are doing the same. Christmas day is soon approaching and may Gods love and joy be in our hearts and home this season and everyday of our lives.
