Christmas is just around the corner

I am halfway through with my Christmas shopping... the kids are very excited to see gifts with their names under the Christmas tree. Just a few more gifts for friends and I am done.

This is the first year that we are having a parol [lantern] at home. My MIL bought us one from the Philippines and it's beautiful!

Even though we got Christmas decorations and gifts under the tree, I can't really feel the Christmas spirit. I don't know why. Normally, as early as October, I can feel the spirit already, especially when I was still back home. Here, it is just not the same.

Kids are having their first Christmas party this Sunday courtesy of hubby's employer.
