Cassie’s First Christmas

Christmas would have to be my most favorite Holiday and Holy day of the year, everyones noticeably nicer and its an excuse to be extra generous. I like giving, I like the idea of thinking of those special people in our lives and getting them something that they might want or appreciate and that feeling seems to be aggravated when you’re a parent. I now understand the feeling of wanting to provide your child with everything she needs or wants for that matter and my daughter is barely 2 months old.

This is our first Christmas with my daughter and it just so happened that its also our first Christmas back with my family ever since Marco and I got married so my family was more than ecstatic to have us especially Cassie. For Cassie’s first Christmas, mom and I decided to go with “Candy Canes” as our theme for this year just so the decorations would be aesthetically pleasing to Cassie’s eye. Honestly, we could have put up anything and the lights would have been enough to keep her interested . I wish I took close-up photos of the tree, mom and I filled it up with vintage Christmas toy decorations that we got from a Goodwill store and we added Cassie’s hand print ornament to commemorate her first Christmas (Thanks mami for the kit!).

On Christmas Eve, I dressed up Cassie extra early so I’d have time to look decent and do last minute preparations for Nochebuena. We went to the 8:30 pm mass at St. Angela Merici and Cassie was nice enough to sleep through it, she didn’t give us any trouble at all. Merry 1st Christmas langga!

Thanks Rosa for Cassie’s Christmas shoes, they remind me so much of Dorothy’s from Wizard of Oz.
