Not Traveling Far For the Holidays

Who’s excited for Christmas? I am. My household is super excited.  My darling daughter has already created her wishlist. She had a few expensive ones on there but I know she will appreciate what Santa would bring her on Christmas Day.

We are not traveling very far for the Holidays this year.  We are spending Christmas with my in-laws in Tyler. Our travel plans are still on, though.  We are thinking of vacationing next year for our 10th wedding anniversary to the Philippines.  Hopefully on Christmas Break.  As you know, making travel arrangements when you have a student is quite difficult because we need to consider the number of days the school is off. Normally, the school’s maximum break time is two weeks during the Holidays-which is nice, I think.

Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful Holidays with your loved ones. And be safe in traveling especially in the snow.

If You Are Traveling This Holiday Season

Happy December, everyone!  It’s Christmas time.  How are you preparing for the Holidays?  Are you traveling to see dear families?  We did three years ago.  We had a Christmas vacation to the Philippines in December 2012.  It was our first time to go together as a family and spend Christmas season with my family back home.  It was a very nice time because we had a great weather all throughout our three weeks vacation.  My parents, siblings, niece, and nephews were very happy to meet my darling K in person for the very first time.  And my sister-in-law, my brother’s wife, gave birth to a healthy baby girl on December 30th.  So we were able to see and meet her too before we flew back here in the US.


Though traveling with a toddler can be stressful and tiring, my dear husband and I managed to keep our calmness.  Our daughter began feeling uncomfortable when we landed in Manila.  I assumed it was because her sleep on the plane was disturbed – we landed at midnight – and we had to wake her up to get through security checks and stuff.  It was humid and sort of hot in the arrival area that moment because it was very crowded. After we got all our luggage and got on the taxi taking us to our hotel, my darling daughter started to settle down and feel okay.

Anyway, if you are traveling international this Christmas season, be prepared with flight delays and other unavoidable circumstances.  Keep your cool.
