Noche Buena was held at Tita Kris' place. Different food too actually. Except for the Turkey which is my other Lola's specialty. It was pot luck. Tita Kris provided the roast beef and callos (the callos of H CUISINE is the bomb!) Tita Viel brought Lasagna and Ninang brought the desserts. Damn! I was too full.
I think all of us handled it pretty well. I guess during the picture taking, it was when I missed Lola. She was always at the center... Even though we all miss her dearly, I think she helped us a lot last night. Being together as a family made it meaningful.
Oh, Tita Kris showed us the premiere trailer of her new soap which will air on Jan 18. Kung Tayo'y Magkakalayo I think is the name. Basta, KTM. Baby James was glued in to YouTube with the MJ Videos. If it's Thriller, he'll run away. I couldn't even touch the mouse since he'd cry. When he wasn't looking, I showed him the Iron Man 2 trailer. THAT he liked! Hahaha. Gotta teach my little cousin the way of the geek.
One thing you won't find in an Aquino party is Beer. I'm sorry but we're not big drinkers. There was wine though which my Dad and Titos drank. Except for Tito Noy. He also can't handle alcohol.
After that, we went home. The Cruz celebration was held at our house. By this time, I was already full so I was just drinking Sprite. Hahaha.
At the end of the day, you think about the loved ones you miss. They're not here anymore, but they still live on in our hearts. I miss my Lola dearly. Each and everyday. I even went to the den which was her room and whispered Merry Christmas.
Anyway, wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!
