Sunday's Bonding Time

Remember MC's promise to her grandpa? Well, she remembered. She delivered her promise and much more last Sunday.

And it wasnt only a time to decorate opa's Christmas tree, it became a precious bonding time with the family, too. The girls dressed up for this day, well, it is also oma's (grandma's) birthday after all.

We picked up the opa and visited oma's tomb. Bringing with us our gifts which we laid on her tomb. After that, the day became busy, which is really our reason why we decided to do the tree this day. We wanted to keep opa busy to keep him being lonely.

Here's my husband and the girls trying to keep the tree straight and steady. Of course, IC cant wait so she's already hanging Christmas balls :D

And here's the finished product. MC proudly showing it off. Do you see that most of the balls and decors are on the lower side? Well, the girls couldnt reach higher and we arent allowed to help them. It was only opa who got to help them and he got only a few balls from the girls.

Here's the opa doing the finishing touches, the Christmas lights.

My husband cooked lunch and the girls prepared the table. And afterwards, my husband and the opa washed and dried the dishes together. We left them both alone. It is not always that they get to work and talk like that.

Oh and the girls got the opa to extract a promise: they would get all his Christmas decors when he dont need them anymore :)

i'm so impressed with your girls ... and of course with their parents who teach them the right values and the real meaning of Christmas. Maligayang Pasko!
