Still a few days more before the Christmas Day but the girls can no longer wait. They opened a few items under the tree and was able to take photos of their excited faces while opening their present. It is truly priceless seeing my kids this way. I am happy for them celebrating the Yuletide Season with lots of gifts coming from friends and loved ones. What a lovely sight.
My elder daughter smiles from ear to ear.
Look, a Mickey Mouse shoulder bag! :)
My baby daughter got an elephant toy.
When I was a kid, Christmas was simpler. Me and my brothers were not showered with many gifts. However, there was always a fest in my grandparents house where we grew up. My aunt would prepare my favorite buco salad and gelatine and cook a lot of delicious food like ginataang bilo-bilo, pork caldareta, pansit, etc.
This year, we are celebrating the holidays in my province again. Like any other Filipino families, Christmas season is the time of the year when most of my extended family members gather for a small reunion. My aunts, uncles and cousins will visit us and we visit them back also. On Christmas day, the kids will knock each door in the neighborhood for some coins and sweets. It's gonna be fun!
