Christmas Eve At Home ( Momimhar posted on December 23rd, 2013 )

Our little one was very excited and anxious to open her Christmas presents under the Christmas tree since I began wrapping gifts which is two weeks ago.  She kept on asking me and dear husband if she can open her gifts already.  We just told her to wait for Christmas Eve.  Good thing DD didn’t insist.

But this morning, after drinking her chocolate milk, she entered my bedroom and got very quiet in there.  I called her name and asked what she’s doing.  Then she came out looking so excited showing me the lady bug sticker which is in her stocking hung on daddy’s dresser.  So she was peeking in her Christmas stocking!  What a clever girl.

"I got a lady bug sticker.  See?"

“I got a lady bug sticker. See?”

So we just let her take the sticker.  That made her busy for the whole morning today.

Traditionally, in the Philippines, we prepare Noche Buena or Christmas dinner.  The whole family goes to church for mass on Christmas Eve.  Then everyone enjoys the Christmas dinner and opening gifts after that. It was only this morning when dear husband and I decided what to cook for our Noche Buena.  I made stir-fry noodles (pansit) and fried some country style pork shoulder.  We bought a champagne at Wal-Mart and he prepared a Mimosa for me.  🙂  And as you know, this will be the very first time we will spend Christmas at our home.

My Mimosa.  Cheers!  Happy Holidays!

I thought of my cousin Emz and asked if it’s okay to come over to their place because I am bringing some pansit to her.  Gladly they’re already home from church.  Besides bringing food and Christmas gifts to them this Christmas Eve, we also went to wish them a Happy Christmas.  Our little girls want to play.  They went to Audrey’s room and start gathering a few toys out.  But we already told DD that we won’t stay long.  We just came over to wish cousins Merry Christmas.  Good thing she didn’t fuss.  The girls were so anxious about opening presents.

Presents for the Jones family are ready.

It was very cold outside but we’re not getting any snow for Christmas this year.  But Texas, somehow, gets it hopefully soon. 🙂 Have a Holly Jolly Christmas everyone!

How about you?  What’s your plan on Christmas Eve?

    You have a very cute little girl. We had pancit too during Christmas but my Filipina friend was the one who cooked it.
