I do love our Christmas this year. Despite my previous post about feeling melancholic about last year’s Christmas, this year has been memorable for me.
Our kids got to spend more than a week with their cousins at their grandparents’ place. Nothing beats seeing the smiles on their faces and hearing their laughter. Of course, there were also lots of crying but that came with the territory.
We celebrated Gary D’s birthday with most of the family at a pizza place near our house.
We also visited my hubby’s family and had time to catch up with each other. We haven’t seen them for a long time it’s just good to catch up with them.
Gary D. also had time to be with his brothers. With everyone so busy these days, we have to make the effort to be with each other.
Just when I thought that I’d never get the gift buying and wrapping done, my sister and I went to the Noel Bazaar on December 22. Yes, it was all last minute but I was able to buy gifts for our loved ones.
Surprisingly, I also got a lot of my Christmas cooking done. Unfortunately, I don’t have pictures for that because I sent my daughter/photographer at her grandparents to spend time with the cousins.
The highlight of our Christmas is watching Kaos at Resorts World Manila. Hubby got all of us tickets at a discounted rate making it affordable for most of the family. It was an unforgettable show and we all enjoyed watching it.
Here’s the whole family posing under the Christmas tree at Resorts World Manila. We had so many kids, I was busy counting heads every ten minutes for fear that we might lose one of them!
There’s nothing like celebrating the Christmas season with your family. I’m glad that we made the effort to see most of our family members.
God is good!
