What's New This Christmas?

We celebrate Christmas almost the same way every year. Exchanging of gifts on Christmas Eve, eating a simple and yet special dishes that we prepare for our Noche Buena, attending mass, receiving relatives at home, giving cash gift to kids and of course, watching movie right on Christmas Day followed by a simple dinner in a restaurant of our choice.  This has been a routine every year. However this time around, there is something new and that is celebrating the holidays with hubby. He wasn't home at Christmas every year because of his job overseas and this is the only time that we are able to be with him on most occasions including our wedding anniversary which happens to be on December as well.

Excited as he was, he was very busy preparing his gifts for the traditional exchange gifts at home and it was really fun especially when we revealed to him hat he needs to buy some gifts for our pets.

He also prepared a simple dinner all by himself.  He doesn't want us to assist him actually, he said it would be his pleasure to do this for us.

Overall, it was really fun to have him around.  My daughter Mika was laughing non stop.  Too sad that our son Edmar wasn't able to celebrate with us as he is currently out of the country but we are all looking forward to see him in flesh very soon.

Aside from the fact that we are very happy with all our construction projects going on right now for the home improvement, what makes us happier is the fact that we had the opportunity to celebrate Christmas with him. Such is in itself...a gift.

Merry Christmas!
