The holidays are in full swing! Two weeks of break. Woo!!! There was a lot of preparation, gift wrapping, and cooking. The sisters and I were pretty tired after Christmas, but it was well worth it.
There was a few days of rain, the lull after Christmas Day, and patiently awaiting 2019! It was a good week.
To the pictures!

I got to sleep in, but I had to take care of errands. It was a rainy day.
Happy Christmas Eve!!
It was gross. I like the rain, but only when I’m indoors. 😛
Grabbed a few snacks to take home. Find me at the chip aisle. Haha.
Ride share heading home. I dodged the rain as soon as I got into the car. Whew.
Bianca and Sal!
We stayed home and enjoyed the evening. That way we could prep for Christmas.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! We went to mass in the morning. Always a beautiful service.
Bianca singing like no one’s business. Hehe.
Our beautiful tree. We made ornaments for our dogs that have passed. ❤
Presents! I was excited to open mine and give folks their gifts.
Sally wore her elf costume (only for a few minutes.) So cute.
Beari just wanted to nap.
Quick trip to Safeway. Had to pick up some ingredients and ham.
Whole Foods messed up our order. -_- No biggie, just an inconvenience.
The sun has set. Time to prepare dinner!
See ya later, Sutro Tower!
Most of our food. Missing: the turkey – it was still in the oven.
After dinner, presents! I loved everything I received. Thank you. ❤
Coffee crunch cake for dessert. It’s the best!
That was my Christmas celebration. Good times.

The day after Christmas is always a trip. I slept in and did a whole lot of nothing. Haha.
I hung out with Sal for a bit.
Lazy day in the living room.
It was a great Wednesday!

Spent the day at home. I slept in again. I needed the sleep.
Ramen with egg, bonito flakes, and shredded cheese. Such a good combo! 😛
SAL! We watched a lot of The Simpsons. SO. GOOD. Especially the old episodes.

Nothing eventful documented on this day. Stayed in again.

Spent the morning with Sal. I took a quick nap and then had to run errands.
It was a busy day. We had to get ready for an anniversary dinner.
It was a beautiful and sunny day!
We got ready in a timely manner and got to the cathedral early. Traffic wasn’t too bad.
We helped with putting up pictures and the last of the decorations.
The photo booth! So cool.
Abouna Labib and Lucky. ❤
Mass in the evening. So much to celebrate and be thankful for.
The reception. Folks started filing in.
Abouna Labib gave a blessing to past and present members.
Happy 10th, St. Benedict’s Young Adults Group! ❤ To many more.

Chill Sunday. Holiday cookies! Thee best.
We stopped by our Auntie and Uncle’s house. Wanted to see them before the New Year.
We just hung out, caught up, and had dinner. Everyone was there.
That’s Cali! She’s super sweet.
Brazilian food for dinner. We also had Ube for dessert. Straight from the Philippines.
We looked through this photo album. So many memories. ❤
To be young again. But life is all about growth. I’m thankful for everyone and everything.
That was my week! Thanks for stopping by.
