Surprisingly, first day of school of 2016 turned out well! Even everybody didn’t get enough sleep, we managed to wake up early, do what we have to do, and get to school on time! Today was different though, kids seemed to be tired, probably adjusting to school routine, to be honest, I am kind of tired too so I don’t blame them. There are going to be a lot of changes happening in the Lising’s so, I am hoping everything will turn out well for us! I know what you’re thinking but thanks for wishing us LUCK!
This year is our 4th Christmas in Arkansas, USA. It has been 4 great years celebrated with friends! I am glad we have somebody like them to celebrate Jesus’ birth with. It may not be the same as what we have back in the Philippines but being with them will make you feel like you’re home.
Yearly, we are gathering to celebrate Christmas Eve at one of the designated family host of the year, and this year was at Sta. Ana’s New Home. We have lots of foods, drinks, took a lot of pictures, games and prizes, and of course, lots of gift givings. Sadly, husband didn’t get to join us this year for he was not feeling good and just let the three of us go this time. We also had our yearly tradition game – White Elephant. Everybody seemed to be happy of what they’ve got which is
good boring! (silly face insert here). Kids did Talent show ofcourse. My kids danced “Watch Me (Whip/NaeNae)”, others danced too, and one played Violin. I hope these kids will continue to perform in the future even if they gets a little bit older.
It was fun night filled with laughter and joy. Kids and kids at heart went home happy. All went home with happy faces, full tummy, car trunk full of gifts and ofcourse full of happy memories that will give smiles on our faces in the future.
MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of us!
Looking forward to our next celebration – NEW YEAR!!!!
I hope everyone had a good time with their family and friends. Tonight, we had a simple dinner at a friends’ house. Everybody brought dishes to share that were personally made.
There arethings to be thankful this year and they are too many to mention. Let me mention some of the most important of all, ofcourse for my family. I am thankful we are together and in good health and situation. I am thankful for my relatives and friends that surrounds us, love, and care for us. And to make it short, to all the wonderful things happened this year. Cheers to all of us and may we all have blessed years ahead of us. May God continue to always be with us, guide us, and protect us!
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
