Merry Christmas Everyone!

christmas2013 Hi guys, How’s your Christmas Eve? mine was wonderful I was able to spend time with family and friends this year. I was so blessed to have them and that despite how exhausting it is to prepare everything before sitting in the table to have a dinner in this special occasion that only happens once a year it does gets hectic to crunch all your time, especially last minute shopping and wrapping all the gifts. Traditionally, from where I grew up We go to church at 11pm at night, go home and 30minutes before midnight strike we pray the rosary and then at midnight we eat and celebrate the Christmas eve.

I cooked some delicious food like Chicken Afritada, some Eggrolls, Lasagna, my brothers wife made us some Chicken Macaroni salad, and my brother roasted some pork. I made some desserts as well Peach float, and we had some brownies that i baked and also Ice cream. Well what happens next? being stuffed with a lot of food in the table omgash! so we decided to play and sing some karaoke, playing with my nieces was so cute. We were laughing, just enjoying the night.

Afterwards, We played some Christmas songs again by Pandora and We opened the gifts, everyone got a little something of course. and I also give away some 2014 mini planner for everyone. Im so glad to have celebrate this years holidays with my family again. Thank you God for all the blessings you showered us this whole year. Happy Birthday Jesus! and Thank you all for sharing and celebrating it with me here in my blog this years wonderful Christmas Day. May you all have a joyous Christmas! Be safe. I will update you on New years eve as well. Take care guys and Love ya. Do not forget to follow my blog! =)


My Christmas Tree is Up!

myxmastreeHi guys, How’s it going? 3 more nights to go its Christmas eve already! Have you got your shopping done? If you ask me, I didn’t yet… Im not really prepared at all this year for the holidays. My focus was working my butt off to pay off my bills and besides I was working 4-5days straight each week only 1 day off so I can’t do much at all. Anyway, I am happy to celebrate Christmas eve with family and Im glad im off from work that day. So my brother, my nieces, my brother’s wife, Sid and Brent pretty much just us, I will cook some delicious dessert and some pasta and salad. I can’t wait I will be very busy that day for sure. How about you what kind of meal are you preparing? Let me know and maybe you can suggest something I can cook too.

Anyway, My Christmas tree was up last weekend. Dec 13, just wasn’t able to post it here that day sorry for the delayed post. but here it is, its only a 6ft tall tree, total of 300 regular clear lights, 26 small ornaments and 15 more bigger ornaments all together. Its actually my first Christmas tree since I moved here 3yrs ago. Because the past few years we always celebrate it at my aunts house so we didn’t bother putting up ours. This year I did. Im excited but at the same time little sad because My parents are not around this year, especially my Mom who still back home in Philippines. It’s okay though everything will be fine.

Well, just thought to show off my Christmas tree and hopefully next year again and so on.. I will also plan to move my work back in Sacramento next year so Im just trying to get my stuff together so Hopefully you will have a prosperous and joyous holidays everyone! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from me to you! God Bless and Love you all! ❤
