It was a busy day for Mommy.. I did all the cooking... spaghetti, tenderloin in mushroom, Roasted chicken, hamonado.. etc..It was difficult at first because Jea wouldnt let go of me.. Still sick with flu, she is so malambing and would want me to leave her sight. I cant even stand up for just a moment. So I decided to send her to Nicole's house to play, this never fails... So we went there and its good that Nong nong is there too, to look after her. I brought her upstairs to play with all the kids.. but... still she wont let go of me. So I brought her down again to kuya. Finally, I was able to put her down.. I slowly slipped away while she sipped some softdrinks and hurriedly went upstairs to cook.
In less than 5 minutes.. here they are.. crying and looking for me.. so I thought of bringing her to Papa instead and finally she stopped crying. So I went off to cook...
At around 9pm I dressed her up to catch the 10pm mass at UST. We left at 9:30, as we enter the gates she said "mommy's school?!" then Papa asked her... who else's? she said "nong nong!" who else? "Papa" and as we are looking for a parking space. Papa and Jea are amazed of the surrounding.. Jea because of the lights and the fountains.. Papa because.. many things have changed since he went to school in the 70's . That's along time ago.. We parked the car besign UST high right across the Colayco park and as we go down the car I was telling Jea stories about the school, that I use to study there and the Colayco Park was different before, that there were a stage and little huts.. then papa would go on telling that in his time there werr no"Colayco park" just bamboo's not even the UST library was cosntructed back then. The only thing that is left untouched is the "botanical garden".
As we walked to the field Jea saw the huge Christmas Tree and was amazed about how big and it and how much lights it has on. The mass hasnt started yet so Papa and Jea went strolling around the field , reminiscing... They went back right before the mass started. We are half pass the ceremony.. when Jea fell asleep.. so we took turns carrying her.. it was sad we didnt had the chance to take a picture first before she went to sleep. She woke up on our way back home.
Usually we eat Noche Buena first before opening the gifts, but Jea is too sleepy already that we allowed her to open her gifts first.. The first one was Nang nangs gift... it was an ironing set.. ang kuya was teasing her "kabayo..kabayo..kabayo.." refering to the ironing board.. She liked it.. and started playing with it.. Then nong nong gave her another gift.. it was a cooking play set.. with 2 burner stove.. laddles.. pots.. etc.. she liked it so nmuch and dropped nang nang's gift.. I liked it too..I was looking fo something like it but its just too expensive P3000.00 plus and I was suppose to make one for her, but thanks to kuya.. she got it, and according to hi, it wasnt expensive at all.. after that I gave her "Santa's Gift" and also sets for cooking.. a good supplimentary for Kuya's gift.. Then i gave her my gift she likes it so much... " Its a fluffy puppy toy including the cage.. brush..blower..clippers..scissors.. for grooming" she likes it so much.. carries it everywhere...
She asked me to prepare her bed and asked her if she wants to sleep na..and she said "No, play na lang..so I left her on the bed to play. Then, as she played we went to take our Noche Buena.. as we finished our meal. I noticed she's asleep already.. We then went downstairs to greet everybody a merry Chirstmas... Ninong Dindo, To Pe, Ninong Ronnan, all gave their gifts to me for Jea, too bad she's already sleep.
