Dear Santa....

After the putting up of the tree and Christmas decorations around the house, Gian's Next Agenda was his presents. This time he keeps on looking for presents from Santa. So I asked him.
Mom : "Have you Been a good boy?
Gian: Why....Yes Po!
Mom: Really?
Gian: Yeah!
Mom: Then you better write a letter to santa so He'll Know what you want.

Immediately he asks for a pencil and paper and starts to write(Kuno Hehehe! D Pa po sya maalam.) Pero mind you serious ang little boy.


Mom: So what do want from santa?
Gian: Uhmm....
1. Bubbles!
2. Toy!
Mom: what kind of toy?
Gian: Car!
3. Glass that is not dirty
4. Ball na di sira! (coz every time that he insists on playing with his ball but its bedtime na, we tell him he can't play coz its sira)
5. Big umbrella
6. cellphone
7. computer!
Mom:Anything else?
Gian: Uhmm... enough na.
Mom: Great!(buti 7 lang pero madugo ito!)

So that night after church, I gave him an envelope to put his letter. He left it on the tree hoping that Santa would come and read his wish list.

And every morning, soon as he wakes up, he rushes to the tree and inspects the branches where he left his wishlist.On the 3rd morning, He was ecstatic to learn, his letter was no longer where he left it! With eyes aglow,and a smile from ear to ear, knowing that Santa must have gotten his letter because he was a good boy! So now he's expecting his presents just like mommy's which seem to pile up each day.

And 12 Days before Christmas,a pleasant surprise awaited under the tree. As he inspected the new presents he noticed some of the presents had the letters G-I-A-N written on the card. And He shouted Thats me! Look Mommy! G-I-A-N! Thats Gian! I Have Presents!Yehey!and he burst into song, the lyrics of which only he can comprehend! And he reached for one and Asked:

Gian:Can I open my present?
Mom:Uh Oh! Sorry son but you have to wait till christmas.
Gian: But its Christmas na! Look at the neighbors, they have christmas na!
Mom: Son we have to wait until december 25

OH boy! The debate lasted a few minutes. finally what I did was I got a december calender, pasted it on the ref and pointed the present date and encircled Christmas Day. To appease him, thus started the 12 days of christmas daily countdown, wherein every new morning he puts an X to mark a day closer to Christmas!With each Passing day he opens one present.

Our House Has Christmas Na!

For the Past 12 years,I normally put up my Christmas Tree and decorations on December One. However, My 3 year old son changed my routine. Here's why. Around 3rd week of November my son saw our neighbors houses having christmas lights already. "Look Mommy! Our neighbor has Christmas na but we dont have Christmas yet!" I said " Son, Its still too early to put up the christmas tree." Big Mistake! As soon as I said it he started muttering to himself that how come the neighbors have na. sabay giving me the "Paawa Look". Kaya even though I was supposed to prepare for my lecture in Batangas the following day, We eventually put up the Christmas tree that night. And Boy was it A memorable One. Gian was so happy that night. He even wanted to be the one to put up the Christmas Balls on the tree. When he saw an old Santa's hat, he put it on pretending to be santa's helper. Just look at these pictures! Sayang nga lang na tinotoyo ang camera ko. WaaaH! But then....

Thank you Gian for this very special moment with you!

Around the Block Entry

I have been soooo busy lately that I haven't scrapped for weeks now. One thing more, my internet bogged down for almost a week. Haay, kaya tambak na messages ko sa email!
And,I havent made my LO for Marissa's ATB Challenge! Good thing the night before the deadline naisingit ko gawin. Here's my entry.

I like this picture of my son Gian because it was able to capture what my husband and I call his "Mischievous Look"! Everytime he has this look haay nako siguradong may gagawin yan na bawal! TFL!
