Christmas Presents

My wife and daughter got busy wrapping up gifts last Sunday after the mass. I bought her something today and she really want to know what it is hehehe. Rose doesn't like surprises, I told my daughter not to tell her Mom because she helped me wrapped it up. Here are some photos I snapped when they were busy...
Does gifts really important during Christmas? I know for sure that it makes children so happy but what about adults? I don't care about gifts, I just do it for my children's enjoyment. For me, gifts isn't really important in celebrating the real meaning of the occasion... what is your take on this?

I agree with you, gifts are not really important. But I give good gifts to my love ones to make them happy anyway. My son and wife are both easy to please even with little gifts I give, probably its the action I did that really make them happy, more than the gift itself.

Merry Christmas to your family :)

Joops said...

Thank you ms. lovely for following my blog, for visiting and commenting and for the lovely greetings!

Joops said...

I love to see the facial expression of the kids in the Philippines because even if the gift is so simple they are so happy, unlike in the commercialized world US, they are unhappy if the gifts isn't the one they wanted... Can you believe that? Thanks Umma!

Joops said...

Yes its true Willie, but sometimes adult should just concentrate on how they can make their kids happy rather than their own selves right?
