Backblogging: The Holidays That Was

I was preparing to bed last night when a series of fireworks was heard and lit the night sky. As for our initial reaction, my younger daughter and I rushed to the nearest window to watch the fireworks display, followed by my elder daughter running from across the room. I can't believe it's already Chinese New Year. How are the days passing by so fast and I haven't posted anything personal yet since Christmas? Alright then folks, it's time for a recap of the holidays.






My baby is now a toddler. She talks in sentences and starting to be picky.





Our annual photo op was a bit of a mishap. The little one refused to calm down. Oh my!





Some of my college friends came over for our year-end dinner. Good news is.. both the couple and the guy sitting next to me are getting married. So happy for them. :)





Met my BFFs, too, for a dinner at a restaurant in SM Megamall. These are the girls I have been friends since kindergarten until now. We had so much laughter and fun.





My elder daughter played Mama Mary during our ward Christmas party in church. Everyone said she was so fitting the role and portrayed her character well. Good job, darling. :))





The party was a total blast. Both the young and the old enjoyed the program, there was a lot of food served, and then we exchanged gifts after.





The elder daughter's Christmas school program, a talent show to be exact, was moved in January.





I am glad that her school is able utilize her talent. I think seeing her Baba and I in the audience helped a lot. She was singing and dancing gracefully all throughout the performance.




I have more photos to share as well as stories to tell but feeling sleepy now. I will see if I can write another backblog entry this week. That's all for now. Have a very happy Chinese New Year, everyone!

PS. Please leave me a comment on anything you want me to write about. Thanks.
