Remembering Christmas Back Home

It is almost half-way towards Christmas day! I am very excited and at the same time a little sad since this will be the 4th time that I won't be able to spend my Christmas in the Philippines. I really missed the way we celebrate the yuletide season back home. I missed listening to the Christmas songs that are continuously played in different radio stations all over the country. I missed the "real fun" and the joy of just being together with you loved ones on this very special day. It doesn't matter whether they are only having 1 or 2 food on the table, what matters is the quality of time spend on that night.

I was talking to my brother last Sunday and he was asking me if I can look into going home by Christmas next year. I must admit that I wasn't thinking about going home at this time but my brother's thought of the family being together again on Christmas had changed my consideration. Hopefully, I will be able to go home by then. I would love to spend another Christmas at home, I really missed it a lot!

Trick or Treat 2010

Trick or treat? How was yours? Ours was a night filled with so much fun and lots of sweets! I was walking around the neighborhood following our little guy in ninja outfit! I thought there were only few kids trick or treating because they had school the following day but I was absolutely wrong because there was a huge number of kids with their parents roaming around the neighborhood that night. Thanks to our neighbors who made the little one happy by giving them treats like candies, chocolates, puzzles, etc. At the end of the night, our little guy was able to take home a basket-full of candies.

Here's the evidence...
