Merry Meowy Christmas from Mama Uni, Lauren & Cutie the Cat 🎄❤🐱 Thanks to Jesus who surprised us on His birthday with the unexpected #BestChristmasEver 🎁🎂🎄 Thanks to our incredible family sa extra effort to make the #BestChristmasEver happen this 2017 💪🏆🎄 Thanks to our family, friends & readers for being part of our lives & part of who we are, rain or shine 🤗
Cutie’s Noche Buena… Friskies 🐱😂🎄 Photo taken on the eve of Dec. 25, 2017 🎄❤🍴
As I shared in my earlier post “Having a Crappy Christmas? Jesus experienced it first”, we didn’t really expect much from Christmas 2017 since this December started out as a challenging one. But the Lord has a way of lovingly & laughingly exceeding our expectations way, way beyond what we can think or imagine! And that’s what happened this Christmas, which surprisingly turned out to be one of our favorites ever 💗🏆🎄
Christmas Eve 2017 w/ the #AmparoClan 🎄❤🍴 #NocheBuena 12.24.2017
Yes, there was happiness & laughter this Christmas because of the food, gifts, fun games (crocodile + baby shark 🐊😂🦈) & prizes during our family reunions.

But there was also a deep joy that overflowed because of the unexpected realizations (I have so much in terms of family life that I take for granted which some people rarely experience), unexpected deep conversations (I will treasure each one), and an impromptu thanksgiving sharing (complete with iyakan 😂 Sino kaya yung umiyak?! 😜 Lol) that made me realize how much each of the members of our family values our family. Grabe! Kahit nag-mukha akong kamatis sa pamumula dahil sa kakaiyak, sulit pa rin 🍅 (Di lang ako mangga, kamatis din 😅 Lels!)
Christmas Dinner 2017 w/ the #MacaraegClan 🎄❤🍴 12.25.2017
Our hearts are too full (same as our tummies after all the exceptionally delectable Christmas feasts 😍🍴🙆 Thanks for the foodz & gifts everyone!)… as I was saying before ginutom ako when I remembered the scrumptious food, our hearts are too full so we’ll just share the full story next time.
Let me just say: Thanks for all your Christmas greetings ✉ We haven’t had the chance to read or reply to everything yet since we’ve been on the go almost every day (and I try to be fully present during family reunions so I rarely check messages during parties) pero nakaka-good vibes to see how many of you remember us even if we haven’t been that active in social media lately 🌞 Salamat din for being so understanding!
We hope you & your family had a wonderful Christmas too 😘🎄💖 Yet whether your Christmas was happy or not so happy, we wish that God will always keep His hope burning in your hearts because He is always with us 🌟 We may not have had time to check out most of your Christmas messages & posts yet (though I’ll try to do so when I can), but you are in our thoughts when we thank the Lord for His blessings to us. Kasi kasali kayo sa blessings na iyon 🏆 Love namin kayo ❤🎄😍 Hugs from Mama Uni, Lauren & Cutie the Cat 🐱🤗🐈
“O holy night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of our dear Saviour’s birth.
- Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
- Till He appear’d and the soul felt its worth.
- A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices,
- For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
- Fall on your knees! O hear the angel voices!
- O night divine, O night when Christ was born;
- O night divine, O night, O night divine.”
- – “O Holy Night” by Adolphe Adam
“Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us.” (Ephesians 3:20) #Ephesians320
