Hello 2017!!!


Happy New Year, everyone!!!

How did you welcome 2017? For us, we had a blast feasting and being with the company of friends here at home. It has been my tradition to just stay home when the new year rings in and for three years now in our Texas home, we did just exactly that. And yes, I am contented in my own simple way!

I don’t know what the future brings but I am hopeful that we all be prosperous and and more successful in our endeavors. And yes, cheers to creating more beautiful memories to cherish as a family!

God’s richest blessings for the new year.

First Train Ride, Ever!


When my sisterfriend asked me if I was interested to go to the Texas State Fair before it ends, I responded affirmatively but told her I can only go on a Friday, with the two daughters, and without the husband! You see, the husband has classes every day and up to 4pm on a Friday so there was no way he can join us as he is not the type that would skip his school if it is not a matter between life and death. Lol.

So, the sisterfriend assured it will be okay with just her and another friend and she will take us to a train ride from Fort Worth to the State Fair Grounds. When the kids heard it, they were super ecstatic! So off we went three days before the Fair ended.

The very exciting part of the whole afternoon of fun? The train ride because it was Triz and Tiara’s first time, ever!

We waited for quite awhile at the T&P Station in Fort Worth but we didn’t mind. At last, when the train arrived, the girls were super thrilled. It took us about an hour to reach the Fair Grounds and no doubt we all enjoyed our train ride experience.

At the Fair Grounds, it was a must-do to see Big Tex so that is exactly what we did.

Us with Big Tex. Too bad, Daddy missed it!

Well, this month has been super busy for us but I am glad we were able to sneak in half a day to make memories that will last. It wasn’t a family adventure but our dear friends who are like Sisters to me made it sure that as new to Texas, we will have a grand time experiencing the Texas State Fair for the first time. And we did, so there will surely be another State Fair adventure in the coming years.
