On Christmas Eve

Warning: This is a back post.

We still had to go to work on December 24 so it was a mad rush to get home (took undertime from work) to arrive just in time for the 7:30 p.m. anticipated mass in our village chapel.

When we got home, Zoe already had taken a bath and was dressing up already. We decided to make her wear her lavender gown (it was a Feast Day A anyway) - this one she last wore during my Dad's wedding last May. :-) She looked so cute that many people made comments on how she was dressed so nicely for the celebration.

During the offertory, our family offered something special to be given to the priest. This was like a thanksgiving for the many blessings, both material and spiritual, which we have received for the past year.

After mass, we took some more pictures and then put Zoe to sleep already.

For the very first time, my Dad was not with us during Noche Buena (he was in Batangas). Anyway, we said our thanks, prayers and happy birthday's to Jesus before eating our Noche Buena. We only had a simple dinner of ham, sotanghon soup and some sweet stuff. That was enough really.

That's how we celebrated our Christmas Eve.

...and oh, Santa did dropped by that night. :-) Post to follow.
