fun Christmas!

Belated Merry Christmas!  I’m sure all of you have had a fun Christmas with your family and loved ones like we did.  My family and I spent Christmas at my husband’s hometown.  We were there for just a few days but that was enough to enjoy our Christmas celebration. 

Sharing with you some of my kids’ pictures during our Christmas vacation:

my kids Christmas caroling adventure

Last night, my 3 kiddos and 2 of their friends went out to do their Christmas caroling.  A lot of kids are doing it here in our village and since it's already vacation, I allowed my children to join in the fun of singing Christmas carols.  And yes, even my toddler joined with his sisters, too.  He was clapping his hands and trying to imitate the songs as if he really knows the lyrics.  So cute! :)

They earned a total of Php108.00 pesos, which they shared in equal.  My daughters deposited their earnings in their piggy banks while my little boy bought candies.  They had so much fun and they're going to  do another round of Christmas caroling tonight. :)

Wonder how much they'll earn later?

she's a star!

I've already shared in my other blog about my daughter winning a contest from Cartoon Network Asia and about the photo shoot she had on Sunday.  Gwen really had a great time last Sunday, although I can tell she was a bit tired from all the poses and never-ending smiles she did for the pictures, but still having this experience was a dream come true for her.

She won a lot of cool stuff for winning the contest, which she shared with her sister, and was very happy with the Nintendo DS Lite she got.  The merchandise she got are not yet available here in the Philippines, so she's very happy and proud that she's the only one here in the Philippines who has those cool stuff.

Being her mom, of course, I'm very happy and proud for the blessings she received.  I hope that this would open more opportunities for her in modeling.

Congratulations, Gwen!  Mommy loves you and I'm so proud of you! :)

Mommy Moments: Give Love on Christmas Day

It's Friday once again, and time for Mommy Moments.  This week, mommies will get to share what gifts they’re planning to give to their kids this Christmas.

For my little boy, he already got his Christmas toy early.  He loves airplanes and helicopters and dreams of being a pilot when he grows up (well, for now that’s what he wants) and so when he saw this toy helicopter at the mall, he didn’t let go of it. :)  This is actually his second toy helicopter.  He has one of those helicopter thingys that fly with a remote control but he just plays it with his Dad and grandpa because he still doesn’t know how to navigate these kinds of toys.

For my girls, Gaby wants to have her own PSP and Gwen, being a Barbie fan, wants to own a toy laptop.  I don’t know how their Dad would be able to buy them these toys, but I just say to them to have faith…lots of it. :)

Whether we buy our kids the toys or things they want or not, we’re thankful that they understand when I explain why we couldn’t give it to them yet.  I also tell them that compared to other kids, they’re still fortunate that they’re able to go to a good school and still have things that they need in order to live and grow well.  And that’s enough for them to understand. :)

love that smile! :)

My little boy just loves posing for pictures.  There are times when he looks grumpy on his photos and most of the time he just loves to goof around.  Like these pictures I took of him a couple of weeks ago:

Isn't he just cute and adorable?  He wouldn't stop laughing after seeing his goofy pics. :)

Mommy Moments: Christmas Tree

Mommy Moments time!  And this week's theme is Christmas tree.  My kids are always excited and happy, especially after I've decorated our Christmas tree.  I'm not really artistic, but I really try my best to make our tree very Christmas-y.  Here's our tree at home, and I took this picture right after decorating it. :)

And here are my kids posing by the tree! :)

Gaby's field trip

Though extremely exhausted, my daughter Gaby really enjoyed her field trip yesterday.  I had no problem waking her up early yesterday (unlike when I'm waking her up on school days), because she's really excited about this day.  She also made a new friend, a 1st grade student named Dwight. Well, not all students joined the field trip and their school arranged the bus assignments of students in such a way that Grade 1 and 2 students were mixed.  Gaby is really great in making new friends, and that added even more fun in her field trip.

Below are just some of the pics I took of her and her new friend from yesterday's field trip:

I'm so happy that you enjoyed our bonding time yesterday, Gaby :)  Mommy loves you so much! :)

Mommy Moments: Last Christmas

Here's a simple picture of my kiddos taken last Christmas.  They wanted to pose for a pic by the tree before going to the Christmas party here in our village.

More memorable last Christmas moments at Mommy Moments.  Happy Friday! :)

Gwenevere's first Holy Communion

This is the day that my daughter's been waiting for - her first Holy Communion.  She was very excited that finally, she'll be able to join his Dad and me whenever we take communion every Sunday at mass.  She has also been waiting for this day because she's very excited to wear the simple yet pretty white dress we bought. :)

Isn't she just adorable?  Congratulations, Gwen! :)

leaf is the new flower

My little boy stopped giving me flowers whenever he'd come home from play...because he's now giving me leaves.  That's right, leaves!  I guess he thought that I might be getting bored with the flowers so he changed the item for his little surprises for me.

Pretty unique, huh?  :)
