christmas gifts

I have never really gone out to visit my ninongs + my ninangs, since most of them live in manila where mum used to work before. although i’ve  only got a few gifts for this year, i love each one of them + who knows maybe i will get more in the coming days. christmas season is not yet over, anyway 😉

here are my favorite gifts this christmas:

christmas, toys, toy stories, my favorite things

this is a book + slate given to me by my ninang ella, which i particularly loved because i love cars + i also love doodling 🙂

toys, toy stories, my favorite things, christmas

this one is the last of mum’s wooden toy gifts. this is the only one i got to open on christmas eve, really, since this is the only one mum brought from our tree back home. since it is impractical to bring all my gifts along when we went home, mum brought this so i will be sure to open it during our celebration. we opened it before the feast + i was dosing off to dreamland when the grown ups started eating the food they prepare. i love this toy, i played with it for a long time when i opened it! 🙂

christmas, toys, my favorite things, toy stories

the last gift i will share to you is this hotwheels bowl set which was given to me by tita jane, one of mum’s friends. i love it too, even if it’s not a toy as i will surely enjoy using them in the coming days. hopefully mum can encourage me to eat more solids next year with this 🙂

i will tell you more about my other gifts next time…sharing this thru toy stories 🙂

our christmas card this year

hello again everyone, sorry about this one-day late k.i.d  post, we are still on a holiday mode. anyway, i would’ve loved to share our holiday photos with you today but the only ones i’ve got are on my tita‘s mobile phone + she was not able to save it to the computer just yet. we haven’t got much photos as we only stayed at our old home the rest of christmas day, which is all good to me as i rarely see my other tita + my tito since we moved here.

we were at home by christmas eve, so i also had a great time playing with my kuya sean + ate shane. + when christmas day comes, i enjoyed playing with the children who came by our house to visit the grown ups + ask for their christmas gifts + treats. i will be sharing some of mine in my next posts 🙂

i really had a great time playing at home + i also loved the new christmas outfit mum got for me! i hope you had an equally great christmas, too! share your stories with us here at kids in doodles.

by the way, the photo above is the christmas card we’re sending to my ninangs + friends for the holidays + again, a bunch of thank you’s to tita mirage for the delightful thumblinks:)

my new toy drum

my favorite things, toys, toy stories, music

my new toy came in the mail a few days back. it was sent to mum for review + i simply loved it! i am really into music + hopefully when i get bigger, playing some instruments, including my tito‘s keyboard + an actual drum set, too.

my favorite things, toys, kids, toddlers, music, toy stories

the big brown box came with the very cool drum, along with these lot: a pair of drumsticks, a pair of little maracas, a castanet + a tambourine stick. + i tell you i wasn’t the only one who enjoyed playing with it the first day it arrived, mum was tapping on the drum head like a kid, too! 😀

i guess we will be jamming more + making wonderful music on our spare time. i hope you can jam along with us 🙂

check out mum’s full review of this toy here.

on the second day of christmas

…mum got me a new blanket with pictures of cars in it, she knows that cars are one of the things that i love the most! we have yet to use my new blakie though, as mum need to wash it first. she also needs to wash the bed sheet that she bought along with the blanket. they are both in my favorite color: blue 🙂

although i do not really use a blanket, since i seldom feel cold, mum knows that i will totally enjoy looking at the car pictures on my new one. hopefully she will get me a matching bedding, soon, too, cause the one she bought is just in plain blue color design!it will sure make napping + sleeping time very much enjoyable 🙂 mum said she will check out this site called the white company + to see if they’ve got one with cars on them from their wide selection of bedding . i hope they do 🙂
