So my Christmas this year was a bit different. I guess that's what happens when the older brother is engaged and wants to get closer to his almost in-laws. Not to mention the military boyfriend is away this winter. And on top of that, my dad had work on christmas. Christmas eve was alright, i had work. Usually the familiy opens presents on midnight, but since everything was different, we didn't open them until it was almost the 26th! on Christmas day, i went to church with my dad and had lunch at home with my granpa. Since I had about 5 hours to get ready to go to Santa Ana to my mom's sister's house, i decided to curl my hair. It's rare for me to curl my hair because im so lazy. so i went camera crazy. I'll 
spare all the photos, but here's one:

So when we came back from Santa Ana, we FINALLY opened our presents! and messed around:
So Hershey didn't have a holiday otufit like Reese did, but that did not stop her from fitting into Reese's Santa suit. hehehe I love Hershey for pulling off an outfit that is 3 times too small! And then came the family pictures after the mayhem of tissue paper and wrap everywhere on the floor:

Hello again! Let's talk about Christmas. :]

So, my sisters, cousin, Jordan and I had made our very first gingerbread house ever! The kit was from Trader Joe's. LOVE that place! But anyway, we added M&M's, lifesavers, candy cane, Nerds, and sprinkles for a little extra decoration, since the kit only came with a few decorations. My sister made the christmas tree star by cutting and shaping a yellow starburst, haha. It was fun.

We usually celebrate more on Christmas eve rather than Christmas day, but the Mendoza's went up to visit Jose's side of the family this year, so it wasn't as exciting as it usually is. But they did come to visit before they left! I loveee love love Jordan. He's SOO cute!

I spent the rest of Christmas Eve finishing wrapping presents. It seriously takes me FOREVER to wrap presents! Such a chore. Haha. I was debating whether I should just opt for putting them all in gift bags or just not wrapping the boxes at all, but I didn't want to be lame. When I was done, I hung out with my mom until 12, then wished her Merry Christmas, wished everyone else in the house Merry Christmas (even though they were sleeping), snuck Rocco up into my room, and went to sleep. In the morning, some of my mom's family from Vegas were sprawled around the living room, sleeping. We then had church to go to, despite the pouring rain. After church, I helped a little with the cooking (...not a pretty sight). We waited for my sister, Jose, and Jordan, and family from my dad's side in Mira Mesa to get to the house. When everyone had come, we began the feast. Ohh, the food was divine! I love to eat. Eat eat eat!

The rest of Christmas was spent watching basketball, eating, talking, eating, watching tv, eating, opening presents, and eating. Always good times with family. Here are some more pictures.

Well, I hope you all had a good Christmas! Take care, everyone.


Hello helloooo.

So this is my first blog! How exciting for me. Haha. I decided to play around a teeny bit with the layout settings and all of that other interesting stuff on here (hope you don't mind, Kay :]). Once I've got the time, I'll see if I can figure out this layout business. But most likely, I probably won't have the time. Or I'll end up being too lazy. Or give up because it'll be too complicated for me :[. Well, we'll see. So anyway, Christmas was yesterday! It was nice, really, to have family over from both my mom and dad's sides.

Rocco wore his cute little red sweater for a little bit, but then he managed to get pee on it somehow (no surprise there) so he had to be sweater-less for the rest of Christmas. Haha but that's okay. It was cute while it lasted!

But I'll get to doing a full-blown blog of Christmas with more pictures when it's not 3 in the morning. I just wanted to tell you, Kayla, that I got Roger to watch TWILIGHT! WOOOOO. Well, we only got to watch some of it because of the picture-taking and the present-opening and the stomach-stuffing and all of the other Christmas nonsense that had to be done... hahaha. But MAN. All that was missing was you. Hmm I think it's time for a reunion :D

Gosh, I really should get some sleep now. Did you know that lack of sleep actually cuts your life span shorter? My sister mentioned that earlier today (er, yesterday I suppose). But I never sleep enough. I am absolutely notorious for staying up late. Oh, and falling asleep with my contacts in my eyes... which I certainly will try my hardest NOT to do anymore, after hearing the story about LT's client's friend who was going to become a surgeon but then fell asleep with his contacts left in his eyes and ended up getting an eye infection, so he couldn't become a surgeon anymore for some reason. Perhaps his vision had become seriously impaired because of the infection? I don't know, LT didn't really get all of the details. But sheeeeesh. Now I am deathly afraid of falling asleep with contacts in my eyes. But it'll probably still happen all the time because I am one laaazy bum, haha. Ugh. Which reminds me, I have to clean out all the junk under my bed! I currently sleep on a twin size bed that has those drawers/cabinets under it to store all of the stuff that I really don't need but keep anyway because I think about potentially needing it in the future but never ever ever do so it just piles up until it's a big heap of all of this unneccessary clutter! But, my mom had gotten me a full size bed for x-mas! Hahaha I accidentally typed "x-man" at first. That reminds me, they're finally gonna show Gambit in that new X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie that's coming out! FINALLY! He's cool and throws charged up cards at you and beats people with a stick. :] Ok where am I going with this? Anyway! They'll be hauling my newwww bed in between 10 and 12 tomorrow and I'm suuuper excited. Except for the having to sort out all the junk under my bed part. Gosh, I'm gonna be one of those teachers with piles and piles of books and papers and displays and models and trinkets from 10 years ago packed into every possible nook and cranny of the classroom. Well, I can be organized when I want to be. I'm just too much of a lazy bum to want to be organized. Does that make sense? Ahhhhh. Okay, yes, sleep, now.

Until next time. Good night!
