Philippine Holiday Top Five

We ended our 3 week Philippine vacation with upwards of 1000 photos, which we whittled down to a cool 500. Yes, we're clearly still having trouble throwing things out, but I have made de-cluttering our life one of my new year's resolutions. For the sake of simplicity, I put together our top five highlights...

5. The Golf & Pampering: Between the facials, mani-pedis, massages and hot oil treatments, I must have averaged one spa treatment for every two days I was there.

And while the girls got pampered, the boys played golf and had a couple of great rounds (save for the 3 1/2 hour traffic jam coming home from Tagaytay).

4. Family trip to Sumilon: The family was complete -spouses, kids and all and we spent three days on the island of Sumilon. A small island resort, our party of 16 took up the majority of the space - no outsiders, nowhere to go, just chill (and drink and eat). And when you're on a remote island on the other side of the world, how could you not feel completely unplugged?

3. The Carolina and Mariana comedy hour: Between Mariana growling, dancing and laughing, and Carolina toting around purses, cellphones and laptops, the two put on quite the comedy routine.

2. Spending time with family and friends over the holidays: We rarely get to see them, so it was great to catch up with cousins, playing with their kids, spending time with my grandparents, aunts, uncles and seeing good friends over a three week period.

1. Carolina on Christmas morning: My favorite moment of the trip was being with her on Christmas morning, looking festive in her holiday dress and exploring her presents with delight and awe.
