December 2017 Passive Income
Happy New Years! 2017 was great, but 2018 Is going to be epic.
December was another great month. This month we surprised our son and took him to great wolf lodge for the night. Yes he freaked right out. The wife is now done work as we wait for the time to rush her to the hospital for the arrival of our little girl. Shes due January 13th, but could pop any moment.
Christmas is my favorite time of the year. While its always crazy busy, I enjoy hanging out with our friends and family and watching my sons face light up the morning Santa comes. On the 27th our Solar Panels finally got hooked up and are now generating energy for us to sell to the grid!
Dividend’s this month set a new record, Google decided to pay me (Thanks to all of you) and we made over $1000 in passive income for the first time! Yes you can say it was a great month.

December 2017 Purchases
I made a post how I wasn’t going to make any purchases this month. Fortunately our Tfsa still accumulated $1000 by the end of December so we added to Corus Entertainment to start the drip and lower our dollar cost average.

I can’t stress how much this community keeps ya grinding! Creating the website was one of the best things I did in 2017.
