Reunited

After only seeing each other on Skype and Yahoo Messenger video calls for the past ten months, Andrei, my husband and I finally reunited. At exactly 11am last November 16, we're one big happy family again when we fetched my husband from NAIA terminal 1.

It was Andoy's first time to fetch his dad from the airport. He was squealing with delight when he saw his dad approaching us. He was screaming "Dad!" and was struggling away from my mom's arms to go to his dad while I record his reaction on video. The people in the waiting area laughed when they saw Andoy's reaction. That scene was exactly what I had in my mind for the past few weeks when the flight details were confirmed. It was indeed a happy day for our family.

 Running around while waiting for dad.

See the chipped vinyl tiles? Andoy said "Eeewww!" when he saw that, hahaha! I guess our airport really needs some improvements. Even kids criticize it :)


With Wowo, which is lolo in Andoy's dictionary, looking tired from chasing him.

 My two boys. Such a sweet scene :)

I am so grateful that we will be spending Christmas and New Year together as a family. We have to make the most of our time together because time flies so fast. We'll never know if in just a month or so, my husband will be leaving us again to board the ship.
