It’s not often that I get to hang out with my kazins. It just so happened that we held a family meeting on Easter. Actually, make that a clan meeting. It was a productive meeting with tons of food and lots of love and laughter. Heaven was delighted her cousins were around and of course, paid the price of running around the whole afternoon and whole evening (since we went home around midnight), playing and dancing by having a slight cough today.
Irregardless of that hiccup, the rest of the afternoon went well. We assigned roles for the reunion and collected monthly dues from each family. The best part was the bonding time I got to have with my kazins. We spent the rest of the evening catching up with each other’s lives, dancing, joking around and more.

All in all, Easter Sunday celebrated not only the resurrection of Jesus but also the true meaning of how family can also bring you out of the darkness. From every experience of pain and sadness, Jesus’ love is exemplified in our families. I am truly blessed to have a loving and supportive clan.
Although not everyone was present, they were all in our hearts. I especially missed Jetjet.
Insert Jessa to complete the Pretty Little Liars! hehehehe
I guess I just feel lucky to be alive. Alleluia!
Jesus is Alive!
The mass we attended at SM was good. Although I particularly felt that the priest’s sermon was quite long, his message of hope was received well. It was going to be a busy day.
We strolled inside the mall and of course, we ended up at the arcade where Heaven played different games and won herself a ballpen with a sticky tape. I think she chose it to hoard the thing. Seriously, she now has tens of pens and crayons at home!
As with any Easter Sunday, the mall had some activities lined up for the kids. Thus, we registered to join the activities. There was a fishing game, face painting and coloring. Heaven had a blast!
She won a prize for fishing out 5 toys and had her left cheek painted on. She wanted a blue and pink butterfly.
After lunch, Heaven went on to color some eggs. 🙂 It was nicely made, by the way. Super proud mom, here!
When we got home, it was far from over because we later went to my uncle’s home and met up with the rest of the family for some long overdue bonding. Part 2 post coming up!
Heaven and crayons = awesome
Nice use of colors, beb!
Doing her best!
Busy at coloring!
Heaven and her ice lolly.
And everything else in this world takes on anew! I feel like God gave us all a chance to reboot and do everything right one more time. Thank you, Lord! Have a blessed Easter to all!
