Its been a tradition in my father's side of the family to celebrate our christmas in Laguna because it also serves as our reunion. We arrived in our house in Laguna at exactly 2pm. We were stuck in traffic in Los Banos kaya na-late kami for lunch.
Photos of the day:
Cousins Alex, Kuya Bing and Mika

After lunch, dumating na ang mga namamasko. Kaya minsan ayokong umuwi ng Laguna kasi sobrang daming namamasko samin. Dumog to the highest level dun at pami-pamilya ang napunta. Kalurky dba?
After ng mga namamasko, our family will gather inside the house for our family gift-giving. Konti lang naman kami that time. Konti lang din ang nagbigay ng gifts to us because mostly money ang binigay.
One of my uncle giving money as his gift.
Since apat lang naman ang kids in our family, pati kami binigyan ng uncle ko... hehe
Its Tta Nene's turn to distribute her gifts :)
Eto kami inside the house
Usually family gift-giving started before our dinner pag wala ng napunta na namamasko. Kwentuhan while distributing gifts. Syempre hindi mawawala ang lokohan at asaran.
Before going in the kitchen for dinner, nagpa-picture muna kami.
Me and hubby
The kids in our family. Absent nga lang ang isa.
Before i end this post, we want to thank all those who gave gifts to my family.
The advance gift from Cantos family who resides in the US. To my officemates who gave gifts to me pati kay Tami.
And to those gifts given on Christmas day:
The Hello Kitty and Play-doh was from me and hubby. We requested it from our kris-kringle in our team parties as additional gifts to our daughter. Zara blouse from her Tta Haidee and panties.
We want to see our daughter smiling while opening her gifts kaya pati yung Hello Kitty and Play-doh binalot ulit namin.
Gift from her Ninang Dalyn.
See? Sa Laguna pa lang nagbubukas na sya ng gifts. Kada bigay sa kanya bukas agad.
Florsheim sandals and Sanrio shirt from Kuya Bing
Ross blouse and my fave Planters Nuts from Tta Ne.
Hello Kitty Bag and Barbie accessories
Tta Ne gave this cute bracelet to Tami pero kasya sakin. hehe
Thanks to Tta Nidan for giving this to me. I was looking for this kind of pillow in the mall that i can use in the office.
And to those who gave money to us and especially to Tami, Thank You. Don't worry because it will not go to her Mom's pocket, the money will go directly to Tami's bank account :)
A big Thank You to all!
