Christmas is the most magical time of the year for both young and old alike. Aside from the array of fattening but sumptuous foods, the excitement of gift-giving, and warmth of the presence of loved ones, it is the overall sense of awe and wonder amongst the children that best reflect the true essence of this grand holiday.

Let me share with you some pictures that I had taken at our humble abode yesterday as we celebrated Christmas Day.

It is tamagotchi, Sachiko; another popular import from Japan, I guess :) Extremely popular with the kids these days!

Thanks ... and you, too!

Yes, Dave ... one noticed what I was doing :) Thanks!

Thanks, Carla ... she's our mom in the pic!

Yes, Noemi and Irene ... nothing to light up a child's face than a handful of gifts! They just love 'em!

Thanks, Jhay! They are a cute bunch!

Your mom still looks strong at 80 Eric. And she's with a pretty girl. She sure looks photogenic. Another pretty one with a lovely smile in the last photo. Children can't be bothered when it comes to toys. They're enjoying!

Without a camera, holidays wouldn't be complete, Photo Cache. One of the best inventions by man.

Isn't it something that we often refer to the previous year's photos to gauge how much the children have grown.

Trust your Christmas was fulfilling as well.

She's actually 88, Ipanema! And the greatest blessings of all is that she is not dependent on any prescription drugs. I am so thankful for that.

Yup, children has no time for anything else whenever a new toy comes their way :)

Many thanks, Rolly! I wish you the same joy and prosperity! Are you still in Pinas?

Muchas gracias, NeilD! I'm sure you had a wonderfull Christmas as well. I wonder what you guys served on Noche Buena?

Many thanks, Christine. I'm certain your Noche Buena was glorious with the table beautifully set :) Wish you the same!

Maraming salamat, Jase! Wishing you the very best as well!

As they say, Minotte, a picture says a thousand words. Isn't photography fun? Happy holidays!
