Christmas Gifts 2011

"The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree:  the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other."  - Burton Hillis

This may sound cliche but, whatever, ho ho ho! Merry Christmas, everyone!!! *_* I'm sure we're all still on a high from the food and booze during our holiday and family gatherings. Indeed, Jesus' birthday is the most wonderful time of the year!

Jesus is always selfless and generous, and so with His bonggang celebration, I felt like it was my birthday again because of the sumptuous food and a lot of...... gifts!!!!! Yay! Okay, be ready as I further channel the inner kid in me! :p

I waited patiently til 12 midnight to unwrap all their presents for me! You can just imagine how hard it was!! So to keep myself away from these, I decided to pig out the whole day. Christmas weight gain </3

Had three (3) bottles of this wine with my crazy family after our Christmas dinner! Our eve was filled with stories and laughter! Good thing I never lost composure when it was finally 12!!! :) Time to open the gifts!

Started with baby Kathleen's gift to me! Thoughtful neighbor!!! ☺

WHAT'S INSIDE: Green pen, cute bag chain and a small notebook! I shall follow the "Have A Dream" title of the notebook!

Second gift was from my loving Dad!!!

WHAT'S INSIDE: Studded and sequined Figliarina silver stilettos!!! Seriously, Dad, how'd you know my taste for shoes??? I love you forever!

Next up was from my ever supportive and beautiful Mom!

WHAT'S INSIDE: Sequined Figliarina gold peep toes!!!! I died for 3 seconds when I saw this! I'm so in love. Let me guess, Mom, you and Daddy bought these shoes at the same time. I love you forever!!

From my best friend and real soul sister, Gia!

WHAT'S INSIDE: Books entitled Hope for Each Day and When God Writes Your Love Story. Thank you for this, best friend!! You surely know how much I'm hooked with inspirational books. Good reads for 2012!!! ♥

Totally ecstatic when I saw this Primadonna paper bag from Ate Charrie under our Christmas tree!!! 

WHAT'S INSIDE: Cream flats from Primadonna. Shoes again!!!!!! It fits me perfectly, Ate Cha. Thank you!

Failed to take a photo of what's inside this but it's from Tita Baby. She gave me a quirky pouch!!! Thank you, tita!

Gift from Ate Angel! I'm so glad she celebrated her Christmas with us. Hugs, Ate!!!

WHAT'S INSIDE: Folded & Hung grey drape. I'm going to use this as soon as possible!!! Lol thank you so much, Ate Angel! And of course, for all your wise words and tips about life. Can't wait for our Macau/Singapore trip for 2012!!! 

Last but definitely not the least is another gift from my parents. Perks of being an only child - I always get what I want! Happy kid!!!

WHAT'S INSIDE: Juicy Couture cream bag!!!!!! Just a side story, I saw a Juicy Couture paper bag under my bed a few days before Christmas, but I didn't mind it 'cause I thought it was a gift for a random godchild. Little did I know that it was for meee!!! Talagang effort to wrap it so I wouldn't notice ha! :p Jump jump!!! Hail for this JC bag!! My parents are really the best!!!! ♥

Done sharing the Christmas presents I received for this year! I thank the Lord for blessing me with these amazing people in my life, most especially, for giving us His only Son who is the main reason why we celebrate the 25th of December.

So how was your Christmas, loveys? Let me know please!!! Happy holidays!
