Our Merry Christmas - Noche Buena 2016

Merry Christmas dearies! How's your celebration?

Ours is great! We got to spent Christmas with our family and relatives after 8 years. Yup, 8 years and it's as if we were living abroad, hehe.

I'll share muna our Christmas Eve celebration because I have so many photos to share, hehe. So we went to our hometown early on Christmas eve. Matthew was so excited.

This welcome us! A frozen-themed CLSU main gate!

And where here at Daddy's home!

We had lunch at Sawmill. This is the place where we grew up and made our happiest childhood memories. Sayang lang Nanay and Tatay were not here. It would have been a perfect lunch. ☹

After that full tummy lunch, we went back to Daddy's home. The two played games on family computer.

Did you know that when we were young, my siblings and I wanted to have a family computer? Sadly, it was so expensive before that we can't afford to buy one. That's why when I saw it's back, we immediately buy one. And look who enjoyed playing the most, haha!

We just had our dinner and attended the Christmas eve mass. Family picture muna!

I failed to take photos inside the Church, where the most important events in my life happened. The same place where my mother had his last mass. The Church did changed but I can still see those familiar faces from from childhood. 

I had goosebumps when I heard the choir singing Christmas songs. They have angel like voices that never fail to touched my heart longing for my parents up above. Thanks to their retro rocket microphones.

Anyway, after the mass we got a chance, after 8 years, to take photos at the very famous CLSU main gate. As I have already mentioned it's a Frozen theme this year.

Our little boy loved it.

And so did we!

Hello Mr. Santa!

Matthew is waiting for you Santa!

Look at this boy who freely make a pose  for me.

While waiting for Noche Buena, we relaxed a little like these.

Time passed so fast, it's almost Noche Buena! Here are my three older siblings pala.

Family picture pa more.

And this is love. I wish our two sisters were here too.

Before we start to eat, Daddy A played with the lechon.

Nose to nose daw. Haha!

Merry Christmas na!

After Noche Buena, the guys had drinks. This was our eldest brother making kwentong kutsero, haha!

Which were so mabenta to Matthew. Ayan, hindi daw sya makamove on!

We would like to stay longer but we needed to rest pa. When we reached Daddy's home, Santa left these two gifts for us.

Sorry Daddy, we don't have gift for you yet. Just wait na lang, it will come soon. Hehe.

That's our Merry Christmas eve. I always wished for gatherings like this. It was so like my childhood Christmas. I just wish our parents were here too. But I know they are happier above looking at us how we spent time together and how we became closer to each other. 

I'll share our Christmas day next naman.

Merry Christmas everyone!
