Modification of My Swedish Christmas Table 2012

Yes, indeed!

Honestly, I never think about doing a typical Swedish Christmas tablesetting, since I came to Sweden. I don't know what I was doing. I was just stuck and did not notice, or was that just we always celebrated the Christmas dinner with GH family. We stopped the dinner when  the kiddos are grown-up and they celebrate their own.

This year, both kiddos are home to celebrate the Christmas. Lil Missy came home for a 3 weeks winter break and the Kiddoboy  want to be with us as well. Isn't it a great Christmas present when your loveones are gathered around you? I don't need any gifts. If I want something, either me or GH could buy, any time of the year. I told my family that togetherness and good health are the highlight of my Christmas, this year. Specially, this Christmas is our first Christmas without my parents, their grandparents.

Here are the shots of my modified Swedish/Pinoy(Americanized Table)
 I started with burlap tablecloth, so Swedish  and the dishes are Swedish too...

White & Silver On TTT Day At D´Box

Yes! as I said in my earlier post---

That I am starting my new life as an orphan. Living without parents is not easy, but if millions of people managed to live their lives as orphans, why can't I, right? It's time to change and a matter of fact, whether I like it or not, I have to accept it. Now, I really need to let dear Ma go and have the best of her best life together with Dad and our Creator.

I need my heart to move on and live my life to the fullest. So, here I am... looking forward to the bright side. My life and my family. What can I ask for more? 

JUST LOOK AROUND AND YOU CAN FIND THE ANSWER... guess I am enjoying, right?
