Merry Christmas Eve! Earlier today, we went out to lunch with my aunt and her fiancée. It’s always nice to see them and the food was very good! We went to an Italian place and I got gnocchi pomodoro! Later in the day, we went to church and sat with Delaney’s family, as we usually do. After mass, they came over to our house … Continue reading Christmas Eve 2016!
Hi all! I’m a little late writing this post, because we actually decorated the tree on Saturday (12/17), but I just got my computer back from being repaired so this won’t actually go up until 12/20.

Pretty happy with how the night was: I unpacked, made a cake, … Continue reading Happy New Year!
Hello all! It’s still Christmas Eve where I am, but not for long! On Christmas Eve, we usually go to our cousin’s house for lunch and spend it with our grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins. However, my cousins have moved a bit farther away, so today at lunch was just us and my Auntie Martha and her fiancé, RJ. After they left, we went … Continue reading Merry Christmas Eve!!
Some families have a tradition of getting and setting up their tree the day after Thanksgiving. My family is not that organized. It’s December 19 and we got our tree a couple days ago and decorated it today. We don’t have the tallest of ceilings, so our trees are generally pretty short. It’s usually decorated pretty eclectically, but I like it. We have colored lights … Continue reading Christmas Tree Decorating
