As promised I’ll be posting more of Little Zoie’s Christmas gifts from family and ninongs and ninangs. Christmas is really for kids because they get to receive lots of Christmas presents, as they grow up it will be less and less but us, parents, will never get tired giving them presents even as they grow old. Agree? ^_^
Anyway, here are the last batch of posting Little Zoie’s Christmas presents for 2012!
Just like any kids during Christmas day, Little Zoie tries to be awake until midnight to see what gift will Santa give her this Christmas. So far Santa is granting all her wishes and she’s hoping that she’ll get what she asked for this time too. ^_^ She asked for a cash register gift.
Of course, our Santa wouldn’t want to be caught sending gifts to kids, right? So, Santa only knocked twice as midnight strikes on Dec. 25, laughed his usual ‘Ho-Ho’ and rushed off to go send more gifts to other kids. ^_^
The little girl was so happy when hubby opened the door and the gift was already outside! Nice one, Santa!
As she was trying to open up the present, the excitement is very visible: her smile was contagious and her eyes are twinkling. I was smiling the whole time she was trying to open her Santa gift. ^_^
Of course, mom and dad will not let Santa get all the praises… haha. On the next day, it was time for me and hubby to give our ‘separate’ gift. A doctor play set which has the same tools as her new favorite cartoon show in Disney Junior, Doc McStuffins! She loves it!
She’s really enjoying her gifts and that’s just from us and ‘Santa’. Will be posting all the gifts she received this Christmas soon… ^_^
As you all know that this is Little Zoie’s first year in school as Kindergarten 1, so she’s experiencing a lot of first times here. Christmas party is no exemption, and that was yesterday morning.
Plans for the party includes food sharing, games and exchange gifts. Weeks ahead the adviser, Teacher Ghen, has informed parents through their diaries (notebooks) about these. The parents will just talk on who will bring what food to avoid redundancy of the food.
As the day of the party came, everyone was excited, kids and parents alike. The teachers welcomed us, the parents, to join the party. I got worried because I only cooked chicken lollipop for the kids and a few extra for the teachers because I didn’t expect parents will be joining in. Good thing, SM is just across the road and I bought additional food to share at Goldilocks.
The party started with a few games, I took some pictures and videos of it, 2 videos actually and I’ll be sharing both of them here. First game, the ‘Straw Relay’. This game is boys versus girls, who won? Well, Little Zoie got ahead first but since her 2 teammates are not in the mood to play, the boys won this first game. ^_^
Second game, is named ‘Don’t Touch the Rope’ but I think that this is their version of Limbo Rock since the kids only avoid the rope by bending forward and not backwards. ^_^
One of the teachers is showing them how to do it.
I took a video of supposed the last level of the game, but since there’s still no winner yet, they created another level, lower than this.
Third game, is the ‘Banana Relay’ the first two pairs to finish eating their bananas will be the winners. Since 2 of the players are daddies, the rest mommies participated, they won the game. Before they started on the fourth game, the teachers decided to proceed to exchanging gifts first.
Little Zoie picked ‘Superman’ weeks ago before the party, so we only knew it is a boy and no other clues than the codename. We bought toy cars for Superman. ^_^
And Superman is… James!
Students didn’t only exchange gifts, all the teachers gave their own gifts for the kids. Even each parents in the party has gifts for every kid. Everyone seems to be a Santa and the kids definitely enjoyed getting gifts from everyone. That was really fun, I can see that Little Zoie enjoyed it very much. ^_^
After exchanging gifts, the last game of the day… Pabitin!
I would’ve shared the party’s food but will all the commotion with the kids and the gifts I forgot to take a picture of it. ^_^ The food shared are all potluck and everyone definitely got to eat everything, even the parents and teachers as well.
Everyone went home happy and full especially the kids, they never stop laughing and giggling as they went home.
Here are Little Zoie’s first batch of Christmas gifts from her school’s Christmas party:
