My two loves (the little one wasn't being co-operative on this photo)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY HUBBY (the half of my favourite men duo)!!! Though this posting is a tad late, it still has all the love and well wishes that it would have had if I posted it on your actual birthday.
I LOVE YOU TTTTTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSS MUCH!

Though my little man has been bubbling "mamamama" these last few weeks, it was on Christmas eve when he fully looked me in the eye and said "MAMA". This is by far, the most rewarding present I have ever received and for it to be as simple as being acknowledged as a mom brings tears to my eyes. I think I can say that I am definitely doing something right.
Also on Christmas eve, on the way to my parents house, the hubby surprised me with this beautiful bracelet. The idea behind the Pandora Charms is that instead of collecting ordinary dangling charms, these ones are slipped and screwed onto the bracelet itself. There is a massive collection of charms and to start with, he gave me a little boy to represent our son, a pig for the year I was born and a gorgeous green glass bead just because green is one of my most favourite colours.
Since I can remember, I have been pining for a digital SLR (I own a film version) and after much contemplation, the hubby and I decided that the Nikon D3000 would be the perfect choice for us. Albeit a bit late, I was still very much surprised to receive this (I was not expecting one until my next birthday!).
I can say that I have been thoroughly spoiled this Christmas. But even after all these beautiful gifts, I am still ever so thankful that I have the two of the truest and most precious gifts I can ever ask for because these boys of mine are what my heart truly desires.

Yesterday, we celebrated Christmas a little early with a pot-luck of yummy home made food and the exchange of our Secret Santa.
It was tons of fun (as per usual) and I am still baffled with the way our exchange gift worked. What are the odds that we would have all picked our respective secret santa?!?!
Either ways, I am wishing this bunch a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! I can't wait for our next get-together!
Here's the hubby and Ninong Benjie. I'd be scared if they were a couple but they were opening their presents together as they both had the same gift!
Myself and the little man enjoying my 3 boxes worth of gifts from Secret Santa Sherry!
My wonderful BFF, Ninang Arwen, and our hostess for the evening (and most likely the next few evenings of our get-togethers!).
In the four years that the hubby and I have been married, this is the first Christmas Holiday that we are celebrating where we actually have a tree up! It was exciting to decorate it for our little man's very first Christmas. Along with our new tree was a little trinket that we have picked up... the bhubba's very first ornament.
Traditions are such wonderful things to instill in children and this is one tradition that I am very much looking forward to in the years to come.

I love winter --- it's my favourite season of all.
P.S. Wish I can credit the photo above as mine --- it isn't. Wish I can credit the right person but I just grabbed it off google. Don't you love it though? I do. It epitomizes my exact feeling for the winter season.

Enjoying some creamy Baskin Robbins ice cream.
Checking out some of the famed Hollywood stars.
Four generations of the Reyes Clan.
Head on over here for more photos!
Because this is the hubby & I's 2nd trip to Vegas, my usual photowhoring session was cut down. I found that I was more interested in making sure that my little one was occupied rather than pull out my camera at every turn. So for this trip, I took 90% less pictures than I would normally do.
If there was anything I would suggest for those of you making a trip to Vegas, don't miss out on the Buffet at the Wynn. The moolah you pay for is worth the price of their amazing food!
Enjoy some of the pics I have posted up here :)

Fast forward to today --- coming back from a trip from Vegas, I picked up a copy of said book along with a plush toy of Peter for my little man. And where else would I go to get it? To FAO Schwarz, of course! I was so excited to find both book and toy because I loved Peter as a child and a I know that my son will have the same appreciation for him.
