It's our Fifth!

A simple dinner to celebrate our fifth year as Mr. and Mrs....
 Of course, it won't be complete without the little guy

 Lucas took our picture while having dessert

 Trying to be funny by hiding from the camera but nahuli ko rin naman siya :)

 A kiss, Mom?

 Ooops. Custom timer settings pala also takes 3 successive shots...

Has it really been five years since that December day when we woke up panicking a little since the sun seemed a little shy? :)

Christmas is...

... having your sister style your hair with your parents nearby, laughing at the friendly "asaran" going on between the two of you
... watching your nephews fight over the gifts they got. The moms are a little stressed while Lolo looks on smiling (as if saying, now it is your turn to referee...)
... eating nilagang pork ribs for lunch. Yes, cooked just the way you like it and just the way you had it since your were a kid
... having Arroz Caldo for Noche Buena. It's one of the mainstays (like nilaga) in the annual menu
... all about family and traditions.

Merry Christmas! I hope you all had a good one...

Lucas and his "Tubs"

Lucas loves to "swiimmm", as he calls bath time. Here's a peek at how he's grown in the past years, as seen in his "tubs".
With Daddy at 6 months.
Kasyang-kasya pa sa baby bath tub niya

 At a little more than a year old.
Na-discover na niya ang wonders ng timba.

  Before turned two.
Kasya pa rin sa magic timba.

At three years old, ito ang dialogue niya kadalasan habang nakababad sa magic timba:
Lucas: Mommy, help me. I am stuck. (in short, hindi na siya kasya)

Ang solusyon: gumamit ng batya :)

Caramel Made Me Smile Today

... caramel ice cream, that is.

Reminded me of FIC's Caramello. This one's a little cheaper but without the yummy pastillas bits you'd find in FIC's. Oh, but the ice cream's just as delicious. I half-heartedly asked hubby to close the lid as I kept on refilling my little cup...

Thank you Magnolia for a new wonderful flavor to crave for.
