Bye bye V-day!! hello Easter

Last year we bought a console table, which I was intending use for seasonal decor. I’m happy to report that it was the best purchase I did for our adobe. It’s next to the wall facing our lounge. So when all the chores are finished and I finally get around to sit down for my 10min reading time that is what I see. It makes me happy every time I look at it!!

Yesterday we took our V-day decor down and decorated for Easter. The kiddos got involved, though there were some fighting involved(not unusual). overall a fun thing we do as a family!!!

Creating new traditions

While driving to work today I asked Edwin what was his earliest family memory. He said our trip to snowy mountains, writing his name for the first time, moving to our house and Singapore trip.

There was no mention about our family prayer or church. So I needed to start something spiritual which will last in their kiddos memories. So from tmrw we will be starting a new tradition.

All 4 of us will hold hands and say a little prayer..to start off with I’m thinking. “God be with us and guide us through out the day” and give hugs and kisses to each other!!

I’ll comeback with an update soon. ….
