Before anything else, I would like to greet everyone a Merry Christmas.
We celebrated Christmas at home. Simple, happy and peaceful. I hope yours was, too.
On the eve of Christmas the kids went to their cousins house (one street away from ours) and had dinner there. While they were in their cousins house I had a little time to rest. I was basically out of the house the whole afternoon.
When the kids got home they were chilling in my room waiting for midnight so they can open their gifts. At first we planned to go to the 10:00pm mass in Sanctuario de San Antonio but decided to cancel last minute cause they came home late and for sure the church was full already and we will end up standing outside.
While waiting for midnight we were just nibbling and telling stories. The boys were feeling warm and went down with no shirts on.
Claudia could hardly wait for midnight and she kept on going around the tree, checking her gifts and peeping and sneaking.
When the time came, they became kids again. They were so excited to open their gifts. I was just looking at them smiling and trying to take pictures secretly.
Before midnight Claudia already segregated their gifts. She put each their gifts in one corner. So they knew already what to open.
He also liked the gift that Claudia gave him. These printed socks. It’s so cute! So hip.
Vito loved the gifts that I gave him. I got him a denim shirt (he’s into denim shirts now).
Vito came to me and said: “Mom, can you make me understand what this is. Is this suppose to be art? Am I suppose to appreciate this?”
Vinny also had a funny gift.
All the gifts that I got were all nice. I like them all. But some stood out. Like this cards with envelopes that Chuvaness gave me.
The book that Vinny gave me.
He wouldn’t let go of the wrapper. While Rocko couldn’t be bothered. He slept thru the whole thing.
After I took a shower, I found this scene on my bed.
All of us received a text early the following Christmas morning.
