Christmas 2010

Christmas 2010 is a milestone for our family. Ever since, my husband and I planned to have a small family, with only 2 kids. This year was a fulfillment of our plan. It's our first Christmas as a family of four, with Maia to complete us.
As usual we prepared for the birth of Jesus by attending the anticipated mass on the eve of Christmas. After hearing mass, M cooked our meal for Christmas eve --- spaghetti, fried chicken and ham while I prepared the fruit salad early in the afternoon. My brother Juni added softdrinks while my sister Pie shared taco salad and crema de fruta.

When 12 midnight struck we were at the dining table to celebrate Jesus' birthday, we said our prayers and even sang the birthday song for Jesus in which Leon gladly sang with us.
Maia was still sleeping during this shoot

After eating, we headed to the living room to open gifts, of the children most especially and eagerly. Leon's delight upon opening his gifts was more than enough to make us all excited about opening gifts plus some of Maia's smile while Daddy M opens her gifts...Maia's smile is worth a million lol!
The next day, we visited my SIL and handed our gifts to them. We tried visiting relati
ves but most were out spending Christmas day with their families. Instead we headed to the Light and Sounds Symphony of Parols at the Makati Stock Exchange, enjoyed it for an hour then headed home.Yes! This year's color theme is Yellow :)

Merry Christmas to all!!!

Thanks Jona for the visit!

Yes, we had! Despite the simple celebration. As young as Leon is, we are teaching him to appreciate whatever he receives.

Hope you had a merry one too!
