I have a lot of things that I look forward to during our Christmas breaks and here’s another one from my long list – family reunion with my side of the family. I know after 2 years of blogging, it’s just now that am sharing photos of them. As you may have known by now, am really
not a good a lazy photographer. I would rather absorb and enjoy the moment than taking pictures. heheh… I always leave that job – taking picture – to Dino or to my nieces (when it come to my side of the family). But my niece lost our files twice! First, her bag was snatched then 2nd time her memory card was corrupted. Talk about luck! Oh well, this time around I really did not stop texting her (read: everyday!) to upload our pics in FB. 🙂
So last December, we all agreed to do it in my 2nd brother’s house again. His house kasi is nearer to de Leon’s abode and they are the one who always cooks, I got it from them actually. I always bother help them in cooking as early as 8 years old. Anyway, sayang lang, 3 of my brothers were not able to go. 2 of them works abroad and the eldest have a late shift that day. Same goes with his kids (except his youngest son) and his wife, they were also not able to come.
Anyway, without further ado, here’s they are – My Family
Hopefully, next time all the other Apo’s will be able to join us. Anyway, Liam loves going to his diku’s (that’s what he calls my 2nd bro) house. He’s the youngest kasi among his cousins kaya super baby nila si Liam. Ako naman, pag andito ako, relax ako, since I can leave Liam with all her achi’s and ahya’s. hehehe.. So while the bagets are playing, the oldies naman kanya kanyang kwentuhan. We usually play exchange gifts but this year, nobody remembered to initiate! hahaha..
One of my favorite gifts that Liam got last Christmas came from my sister. She gave me all the Chinese paraphernalia (books, flash cards and writing papers) that yanyan used since she was in preschool. Cool no? My sis kasi is Ms. keep it all. Walang tapon sa kanya. hehe
Oh yeah! there are 2 more reasons why Liam loves visiting his Diku’s house. First is to see Kong kong (my 2nd SIL’s nephew), his playmate and also because, I let him indulge whenever we are here. Since I know he’ll be given candies and junk food there, I made sure that he had his dinner first before we left Kumati.
Sorry this is the only foto he has that night. A little boy made him cry. hehehe… Kong kong’s current Favorite toy is his ‘plane’ made of blocks. He doesn’t want anyone to touch or borrow it, not even Liam. He is not madamot naman, he lends everything to Liam except for the plane. While playing, kong kong put the toy at his back so Liam can’t reach it. After a while, Liam saw it and get it from his back.
Kongkong: WAAAAAAH!!! Mama Beth! Mama Beth!!
Liam: What happened?? (patay malisya ang loko)
Everyone burst into laughter.. hahahaha
I saw a post in FB before – what makes holidays (Christmas) special. For me, this definitely is it! 🙂
