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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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

Kids and students here are still in the online mode in their schooling.

So far Nate has done well for the last two quarters. They don’t have ranking in honors though this school year. I am sharing his grades here.

Christian Living and Character Education – 95

Mother Tongue – 95

Filipino – 96

English – 97

Mathematics – 98

Araling Panlipunan – 96

Conduct – A

So proud of this little guy. He is in grade 2 now.

Nate 12-24-20

Yes, we haven’t seen each other for ten months except through Messenger video chats until today. Another milestone in our lives seeing each other again.

No kisses except tights hugs and “I love you Nate” and “I love you Nonna” in between. He has grown so tall for an eight-year old.

Through the short time that they were here, we had lunch together  and Nate enjoyed playing with my revolving computer chair and he said that he liked it.  Nissa didn’t bought him one at home because she knew he would play  with it.

I gave him a set of pajama and Word Factory. I told him to enjoy playing with her mom and dad. It is a good educational game from seven to adult.

Nissa  and I took lots of pictures of course (for prosperity and remembrance).  We will choose which one to upload later.

I guess I won’t need to cook later for Noche Buena, we still have untouched food inside the ref and I ordered two roasted chicken for later.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ONE AND ALL.

That’s the smile I miss Nate. I do hope we could see each other soon. So glad to know you had a lovely birthday celebration.

This is the perfect time to explore more possibilities in life. Way to go. Keep up being a good, smart and talented kid. I miss you.
