Hope you all have a great Christmas. You may think that Christmas is already over but in fact it's not and it has just started. So your godsons and goddaughters may still knock on your doors for presents if you hid from them during the start of Christmas.
The twelve days of Christmas has begun on the 25th of December and it will end on the 5th of January. Since this is my first Christmas as a blogger, I want to share to all of you how we celebrated our Christmas.
We had the fair share of holiday rush for the preparation of Christmas, gift shopping here and there, and stocking up on food and beverages for the Noche Buena. It's a pretty tiring chore especially with lots of people doing the same thing, meaning long queues, out of stock items, and traffic! However, in spite of all the negativity or hurdles, I'm so proud that we didn't let those things affect our Christmas-y moods and we were able to finish everything in time feeling fulfilled and relieved.
The Christmas Eve is the most fun part, everyone's busy either wrapping last-minute gifts or making mouth watering dishes. And my baby, sensing that most of the gifts under our Christmas were hers, is very excited to play with her new toys to the point that she even hides the gifts on the far side of the tree so no one will get it from her.
The clock struck 12 and we began our small feast with our love ones. After the eating, we all gathered around with Justine in the center, ready to open her gifts.

Justine found another gift, she likes it so much maybe because of the cute pink ribbon around the gift!
Happy and excited, Justine's hurrying to open another gift.

Her new toy is a talking parrot, it's the real one but it moves and copies what you say just like a real parrot. She was so amazed on how it copies everything she says.
Justine even showed how the toy parrot works to her Lola!
Happy with her new toys, Justine wanted to share the love by handing the people around her their gifts. In here, she's carrying a big gift to hand it to her tita.

I miss you all...
