Christmas 2017

This Christmas, we experienced a few firsts. This is the first time Kirk is not with us because he needs to stay in Singapore for work. This is also the first time that a boyfriend of mine has spent Christmas with my family and I. It feels weird to have someone not here with us and to have someone else here with us.

However, as they said, life is all about changes and we need to welcome change. One thing that does not change though is the food that we consume on Christmas eve. My Mom and siblings still make the best noche buena in my opinion and you can see it for yourself here.

We also had our annual family photo though this time around, one brother is missing from the picture.

This time around though, we had an addition. The boyfie made an appearance and as usual, he always doesn't look at the photos. K fine, kinilig ako haha. 

This Christmas, we spent the time just being together, bullying each other, having dinner, scaring ourselves by watching The Autopsy of Jane Doe, then opening gifts.

My brother Karl took this photo of myself trying to hide beside Mark and trying to protect my little cousin who was also scared.

This here is my family exchanging gifts. Mark took photos of us. Many photos.

My son was very happy with his Spiderman flip watch from Avon. He also loved the books Mark and I got for him. Mark also got him earphones because he is forever losing his earphones.

I'm really happy with his gift for me ... one of the many coz he already got me 3 tops from Uniqlo. I've been looking for this light box with letters and he got it for me. He even checked with my little sister if I already got this to make sure that I didn't buy it yet. This is his 2nd surprise for me, the first being the flowers. Doing well with surprises boyfie. Doing very well.

This red hoodie pillow is one of the weirdest thing I have ever receieved. It's cute but I still don't know what to feel about it. Haha.

The bracelet on his hand and the Back to the Future Case is my Christmas gift to him. He seems happy about it so yey!

Overall, it was a great Christmas with a lot of love going around. I think this is the best kind of Christmas because isn't that what Christmas is about? Sharing love, giving back, and celebrating life?

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
