Our traditional family Christmas party

Just like what I wrote to my wife, we were able to hold our traditional family Christmas party last December 24. Just like what my wife started with us way back in 2002. Although she is no longer with us, we want to continue this tradition to remember her by.

We offered our Christmas party to her.

After our opening prayer and welcome remark, the kids each delivered messages to their Mama, and of course I did too. Some of the games were in videos while some were in pictures. Although some part of the program were neither in pictures nor videos because it was not possible for me to take them. I am the emcee, photographer and game master all rolled into one.

First game was the longest sound which was won by Ralph (defeating our defending champion Edgar). This was followed by a dance number by Angel. Other games were Pinoy Henyo, Tissue Paper Tearing contest, a different version of Pik Pak Boom (no pictures/videos) and hotdog eating contest.

Edgar and Ralph performed twice. Ralph sang while Edgar accompanied him on the guitar. Angel also recited a poem for us.

We started at 9 PM and by 11:30 PM we were already finished, so we already shared our humble Noche Buena and after which we proceeding with our exchange gifts.

The kids had fun. I hope our Mama was watching us.

Hello Roy,
That was great that you continued on with your family tradition even after your wife's passing. You're right, her spirit is with all of you.

I wish you and your family a bright 2009.
