Modest But One of the Merriest Christmas

We didn't put up any Christmas decor this year. Oh how I miss our 7 foot Christmas tree where I used to place all presents.  Although we still managed to give gifts to family and friends, it's not as much as before. We tightened our belts this year because all funds were used for the construction of our house in UK .  The couch, ref, double deck bed with pull-out, the kids closets and cabinets are all out. We've sold them all. For a month, we haven't had a cold water, except when we buy ice or when we visit Mama-in-law. This is our most modest Christmas by far but definitely one of the merriest because my friends, namely Nora, Lyn and Cris chose to spend their Noche Buena with us. I thought I was just going to sleep right after Mass but because they are all here, we were all up until 4am!

Lyn and Nora never left me when I needed them most. They are friends who were there
when the going gets tough.
Cris is my friend way back in college. He's one of my kindest guy friend.

The Aguas Family unexpectedly arrived and spent their Christmas with us, too.
It's wonderful to see the kids having fun together.

"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, 
everything is softer and more beautiful."
