Our Christmas 2009

Our Christmas this year is filled with joy and happiness since we are back with our family. Last year was very mellow because we were in Korea. Our family and friends came over yesterday to celebrate Christmas with us.
Here's EJ with cousin Kalee Rose.

Shelby, Lexie and Rylie.

My friend Raquel and her husband Tom, came over and visit us for a while before she went to work at the hospital. Thanks for the gifts Manay!

Shelby and EJ.

Opening Gifts.

The love birds, Jen and Jim

Champ got a present too, thanks Chris.

My sister-in-law with Champ.
Rylie love the lite brite gift that she got from Tita Chris.

We did not give our gifts to the kids. We wanted it be a "Santa's surprise", Rylie even left some cookies for Santa under the tree. Here's Rylie investigating what "Santa" has left them last night.

It's fun to open gifts, a lot of mess too!
We got this instrument for Rylie. EJ has to share with Ate's blessing of course.

"Santa" brought her princess's outfits.

I saw this pexie outfit in the store and thought that she would love it.. and she did. Here's my two babies, Champ and Rye. Thanks Manang Dhemz for my sleep wear, love it.. so comfy.
We got Champ a present too.

Now, he won't be cold when he goes outside.

Hope you guys had a Merry Christmas. The Cottrill's wishes you a happy new year as well.

Mel Alarilla said...

Wow, napakasaya ng Christmas nyo. Yes, it's a lot better that you are at West Virginia because your relatives were able to visit you to share the Christmas joy with all of you. It was a lot better for the kids too for reestablishing their friendship with their relatives. And of course there were many gifts for everybody, lol. Pati si Champ may gift, lol. You are so blessed as a family because God is pleased with your closeness and love for one another. Let this love reign in your family for the rest of your lives. Thanks for the feel good post. God bless you all always.

Ang saya saya ng Christmas day ninyo, Rose. I love to see the kids delight in their eyes when they open their gifts. That's why as much as i can, i always take time to wrap something or anything just for kids. :) Christmas is for kids eh. I just love that thought.

Lucky puppy he won't be cold na when he goes out in the snow.

re: boy in my owm entry.

That is not my son. That's my daughter's classmate. They teased him to the max because they never expected him to do the vegetarian dance with a girl.

Thanks for the visit and happy Holidays to the whole family.
