On Christmas Carols

Noelle’s rendition of the classic JINGLE BELLS.
Noelle: Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all way….

Last night, kids started Christmas caroling in our house. (That’s what they do here in our country, without invitation, to ask for money.) I told Danae to say “Patawad” (sorry) since I wasn’t prepared to give what we usually give — candy.

Danae: Patawad po. (kids still kept singing)
Noelle: Louder, Ate. They didn’t hear.
Danae: Patawad. (runs to the living room because they still didn’t stop)
Noelle: PATAWAD PO. (silence) I DID IT.

Hahaha, she was so cute. More kids came that night, and without my prompting, the girls said the same thing — “Patawad po!” Haha.

This morning…..
Danae: (in the living room) Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way…..
King: (comes out of our room) PATAWAD PO!

Haha. We all had a good laugh. 🙂
