This year has been full of many surprises, ups and down but still i have had a wonderful year. Christmas was at Angelo's house as it was his turn to host this year's celebration. Christmas Day at last has come and the kids get to open presents. We had to wait for Ralph to arrive from picking up Kayla at her mother's. Kaitlyn just woke up from her nap and was so happy to see her big sister when she came downstairs. She helped Kayla open her presents and she also got to open more presents. The best gift that Kaitlyn gave to me was a simple hug. I was helping her open her present with a stuffed bear inside, as soon as we got it out of the box she hugged it and held it to her chest so tight and ran over to me to give me a big hug. That moment i almost cried from the sweetness and spontaneity that my daughter showed to me. I tell you that was better than anything else in the world. The best ever gift i got from Kaitlyn was simple hug, a hug full of love and acceptance. I love you Langga.
Spending time with the family is one of the most important priorities in our life. It matters not the quantity but the quality of time you spent with your family, specially your children. As Ralph is constantly working making ends meet we still manage to make time for the kids. One of the many fun things we do is watch a movie together as a whole family. Kayla and Ralph makes the popcorn while i take care of the drinks. We all a settle down on the couch and watch not just any movie but a family movie that both us and the kids would also enjoy watching. There is one movie that i have heard so much about the All Roads Lead Home The Movie. Ralph and I make it a point to watch movies that have messages and explain it to our growing girl Kayla so she can learn valuable lessons like in the movie. And this movie will be perfect for our family movie night. Like the movie we like to instill values in our home specially in our girls and this movie is just perfect for us to watch. And who knows this might become one of our favorite movies to watch as a family.
