"A dream is a wish your heart make" Christmas 2014 About the same time last year, a fledging Negrense Blogging Society, Inc better known as the Negros Bloggers celebrated Christmas with a simple dinner and a fun Karaoke Night afterwards.

Last year, my family and I have decided to cut back on our Christmas decorations. We did not put up our big tree, instead I got a table top tree which we decorated with LED lights which uses less electricity. It was enough to put a fascinated smile on our little girl's face.
