Merry Christmas

It’s been more than a month since we saw each other, they were here when Noel and Lanette arrived from the USA. That was more than a month ago.

Yesterday we had our Christmas lunch. We forgot to take pictures except for the two shots I took during our meal prayers. Then I also took pictures of Nissa’s gifts to me.

See how serious Nate was in praying.
Nissa led the prayers. Thanksgiving for all the blessings in our lives and being together again.
The various gifts that Nissa gave me, a set of bedsheets, table runner, table cloth and some items from Marks and Spencer. I have a new umbrella too. How nice!

It was a simple celebration but we enjoyed a few laughs when Nate opened his gifts.

It’s Nate’s 10th Birthday

This is how Nate looks now, a truly tall boy for his age. I blogged about him yesterday. This is just an additional photo. Collecting memories.

Nate’s First Communion

I am saving photos of Nate here during their first communion last Friday. He is growing so tall for his age.

He is only nine years old but he looks like a grown-up.
With his dad and mom.
He was one of the readers during the mass. CONGRATULATIONS NATEπŸ™‚ So proud of you.

Proud Nonna

Oh my!

So proud of this little guy (not so little anymore), he is now almost as tall as I am.

Nissa just forwarded a copy of Nate’s grades for their third grading period. Everything went up despite that most of the time he is unsupervised because Obet and Nissa are now reporting for work in some days of the week. My gosh, Science subject and Math are almost perfect at 99 % each. They are still online every day. I think he is more knowledgeable about his tab than I am about mine 😘

What a smart little guy. So proud being a Nonna.

Nate At The Garden.

They came here yesterday to celebrate New Year with us.

After lunch, Nate said, “can we go out at the garden Nonna?”

I asked him why and he added, “I want to pick kalamansi”. That’s Philippine lime.

I told him they are still so small so I showed our two jackfruits.

Can we play instead?” . Then he began making faces and his signature sign which is thumbs up. He has grown so tall and a little more chubby since the last time they stayed here March last year. I took some photos of course..

It is always a thrill having Nate around. When will we see each other again?

More Shots

Here are more photos of Nate’ birthday.

They spent it in Subic in Zambales. It was a joint celebration of their 10th anniversary and Nate’s 9th birthday.

At Camayan Beach Resort

They all look happy.
I love this one.

Nate’s 9th Birthday

Yes, it was his 9th birthday yesterday but they celebrated early last Sunday because of his online classes. We had a video chat for a while yesterday then I sent him an audio greeting.

Here are some of his birthday photos:

Did you notice how he has grown? Look at those long legs.
Goofing around again. He is just a happy boy.
Look at how he acts around his dad.
I gave him a set of Dinosaur toys together with a book on Dinosaurs. Nissa says he loves them.

Time flies! Was it only yeterday that I made my first letter to you!

Again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY NATE πŸ™‚β˜ΊπŸ˜šπŸ˜‰β€πŸ§‘πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ¦•πŸ¦–πŸ¦•πŸ‘πŸ¨πŸŽ‚

So this was Nate’s birthday gift to Nissa, an art project which he did yesterday. I love it.

We could create an artist yet in him.

So Precious

I took a lot of pictures of Nate when he and Obet were here last March while Nissa was in the hospital.

A Joyful Reunion

Back in the last week of March, my son-in-law Obet and Nate stayed with us for four days while Nissa was in the hospital, she was found positive of Covid and was confined for a week.

I took advantage of the days he was here, taking photos, watching him attend his online class, singing and whistling and playing with his toys.
