During Easter Sunday, the family usually go to the beach.  That is how we celebrate Easter.  But this year, we decided to skipped going to the beach and just stay at home.  As expected the kids did not like it.  They are sad and teary eyes because they are excited to go to the beach.   They are jealous because some of their friends are going to the beach.  As always, we have to make them understand why we did not go to the beach.  Told them that we will go to the beach some other time.  And because we did not go to the beach, we have a simple feast at home so the kids will not get sad.  We have their favorite fries too.

Anyways, the real reason we opted to stay at home is because of the series of earthquakes happens.  We are scared that something might happen anytime while at the beach.  We are being negative, but it is better to be safe than sorry always.  This is not the perfect timing to go to the beach.  The series of earthquakes really scares us especially the so called the big one.  We pray though that it will not happen and God will always there to protect the people from calamities.  Even though we stayed at home and celebrates Easter at home, it is still fun because we are able to rest and spend time at home plus we only spent the small amount of money.

Because we love to sing

At home, there are two things that the family loves to do.  First, is watching movies and sing-a-long.  The latter is the thing that we do most of the time.  It is because we do love to sing even if we are not the family of singers.  This family bonding would be more fun if we are using the lavalier mic that I saw online.  I always told my brother to buy a wireless microphone, I guess this is the perfect time to buy.

Simple Family Gathering

Our first day of the year as very memorable to us because we started with simple family gathering.  We went to the house of my aunt and uncle to celebrate new year’s day with them together with our other relatives.  It was a blast because we shared our favorite foods, sing-a-long, laughed a lot and many others.  We haven’t done this for quiet awhile because we got busy and some other relatives has misunderstanding.  It is not good to conduct family gathering when other relatives is not in good terms (ahhmmm….I am one of them).  Well, one thing is for sure, I did not start it.haha!

I am glad that my father, aunts, and uncle decided to have a family gathering last January 1, 2017.  We did have a great family bonding.  It feels really good to see everybody smiling and no quarrels.  I must say that it is so wonderful to start the year with joy, love, and peace with your family and relatives and then to the community.  I am also relieved that the misunderstanding and issues I had with my cousin for six long years is now finally over.  We can move on with our life without no hurt feelings.  Thanks to my family, relatives, especially to God for this wonderful day.  Happy New Year everyone!

General Cleaning

It’s Sunday here and it is the day that the whole family is in the house.  We also call it our family day.  The usual things that we do during our family day, is having some karaoke in the house, eating, watching movies and sharing jokes that we all laughed.  Although we do not have a good singing voice, still we sing because it is the thing that the whole family loved to do a lot.  I grow up hearing my mother and father singing for us.  The love of music we have right now is all because of them.

But today, our family-bonding day is different.  After church and breakfast, my eldest brother told us that we do general cleaning of our house. The house needs to be clean because there are lots of cobwebs, dust and things that we needed to throw.  When there are kids around the house, expect that the house is so messy.  That is what happening in our house.  They have put their toys in different bags, cut papers and put it inside the bags, and many others.  Even my shoes are not in the proper place.  Well, they like to wear my shoes.  I remember myself doing the same when I was there age.lol  They are really reminds me of my younger days.

I must say it is a very tiring bonding we did today but fulfilling and makes me happy because it is another fruitful day for me.  Now the house is clean, looking forward for another mess cause by little gremlins (my nieces).lol
