Lessons and Changes
Realizing who my real friends are and learning who to put my trust on… Truly and completely happy… Leaving behind things that doesn’t matter… Happy and contented with what I have.

These are just some of the marks that year 2006 had left in me. It had truly been a great year for me!

3 and a Lifetime

 Everyday love me your own special way
Melt all my heart away with a smile
Take time to tell me you really care
And we’ll share tomorrow together
Ooh baby, I’ll always love you forever
– Always and Forever, L.Vandross

It’s our 3rd year of sharing our life together… of being one… of being a family.

My husband and I had late dinner at Gumbo resto in SM Mall of Asia. We only ordered buffalo wings, seafood gumbo, rice and drinks. The servings is good and the price is really worth it. On the other hand, the kids watched “Cartoonival! Cartoon Network Live” at the Araneta Colisuem.

On Christmas Day

It’s Christmas, all over the world tonight.
It’s Christmas, all over the world.

In the afternoon, we went to Nanay’s house in Taytay. We eat and the kids received some gifts. What’s good being a child is that they appreciate every presents they are receiving, no matter how small or big it is. I wish my children would grow up that way. Always keeping in mind… “it’s the thought that counts!”

Merry Christmas Everyone!

At first I thought that our Christmas for this year would just be another day. A day that will just past. Thankful that it had been a great Christmas after all. We are blessed. It’s more than enough. It’s the greatest gift we had received.

 

T’was Night Before Christmas

Finished wrapping all the presents! Prepared to celebrate Christmas…

We had an early dinner at Mommy Lola’s house. A great and memorable celebration with lolo, lola and our relatives. Lots of gifts to be given and received.  Lots of food to eat and share. Fun times.

This is also my baby’s first Christmas. It had not been a good night with him as I know there’s something strange that he feels. Hayyy iyak ng iyak…

Gifts we received:
Me – t-shirt, bracelet and cosmetic bag
My husband – t-shirts and bracelet
My little girl – 4 dolls, 1 barbie doll (from me and my husband), winnie the pooh bear, cute head band, shirt, teddy bear, money
My baby – a cube pillow, polo shirt and shorts, toy plane, toy truck, bear, activity walker (from me and my husband), money

We then went at my Mother-In-Laws house. Again give gifts and eat some more. Me and my husband received polo shirts. The kids received dolls, toys and shirts.

With My Little Girl

I decided to bring along my little girl with me at the office. Since its Saturday, we could already go home in the afternoon. I bought her a Jollibee kiddie meal and a Mcdonalds happy meal. I could feel that she felt so happy spending the day with me, as I also felt the same way.

I started wrapping Christmas presents when we arrived home.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Have yourself a Merry little Christmas
Let your hearts be light
From now on, our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yuletide gay
From now on, our troubles will be miles away

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

Christmas Wishes

What will be our Christmas this year? Amidst all the storms we had faced this past few days and are experiencing now, we can’t put-off and set aside Christmas. As the song goes, “Kahit na anong mangyari Ang pag-ibig sana’y maghari Sapat nang si Hesus ang kasama mo Pagka’t tuloy pa rin ang Pasko… Tuloy na tuloy pa rin ang Pasko”.

We would defintely have a good celebration and exchange of gifts. Though this time it would be a different one.  

We would set aside those things which blocks us from being happy this holiday season. Wishing that all our troubles will be gone.  Hoping and praying our Christmas would be a happy and blessed one.

Christmas Parties and Preparations

It’s the time for parties and get-togethers. It’s the time for more food and gifts.

[12/15]
My husband and I went shopping the whole day at Glorietta. We bought lots of toys at Toy Kingdom, Toy Town and Kids Station. Whewww… I just love shopping for toys. It makes me feel like a child again.

[12/16 pm]
Our department’s Christmas Party at our manager’s house in Quezon City. I must admit that the food was great! Yehey! All of us received something from the raffle which was prepared by our manger and his family. Thank you so much.

CGI’s Christmas Party at Dads, Saisaki and Kamayan. Eat all you can! Kaso nga lang, wala talaga akong luck sa raffle. Hehe. Pero ok lang. Enjoy naman.

Sentimental Pieces

You’re in his heart, though you’re not a part of his life now.
-an exerpt-

Just one of these moments which makes me sigh. When song lyrics and words makes me feel sentimental. Maybe I’m just hopeless romantic. Maybe i’m just fond of love stories and love songs. Maybe I just appreciate the thoughts of holding on, moving on and letting go. *sigh*

If only i could go back to our yesterday
I would have not allowed to see you go away
It’s been awhile but things are really not the same
But still there’s something that i want you to know
Baby that i’ve always loved you so
– All This Time, by OJ Mariano

I am truly grateful for being able to experience love, all the joys and pains that comes a long with it. How it had made me a complete person, capable of givng and receiving love in return. Love in all its ups and downs.

Being married is totally different! I completely erased the thoughts of moving on and letting on. This time, I would truly keep on holding on.

In These Places

[12/9 am] at MDH
Me and my husband took took a leave from work today to go to the hospital for our children’s check-up. Paid 4600 pesos for their injection! Whewww ang mahal talaga! But I know it’s for their own good.

Here, I could definitely say that my children’s health is more important than anything else.

[12/9 pm]
Left the kids at home. We decided to visit the Worls Bazaar Festival at the World Trade Center.
Bought a toy, a Hello Kitty watch, a pair of t-shirt and shorts for our inaanaks. Also bought T-shirts that we would give as gifts. These’s a lot of items that I wanted to buy, pero sympre I have to stick to our budget and buy the things that we needed first.

[12/10]
It’s raining! Again… shopping time at the World Bazaar! This time, we brought along our kids, together with my sis & her bf.

Here, I won’t get tired of shopping!
