christmas 2014

  We got our tree this year about 2 weeks before Christmas. Little man enjoyed helping out this year and running around all the trees. Here it is, in all it’s decorated glory! We picked a smaller this year because our little man is much more mobile and likes to climb and jump on things.  […]

scenes from christmas–pictures with santa & mickey mouse

The picture with Santa below from Christmas 2013 was when Baby H was only 9 months. The picture was taken after they visited the petting zoo at Disney and was taken early in the season so there were no lines.   This year, we tried twice to see Santa at Disneyland, both times we were […]

scenes from christmas – our evening at disneyland

There’s no place most festive around our area than Disneyland. Now that Baby H is older, we are able to spend time at disney for longer hours (currently about 4-5 hours before he poops out and needs a long nap). We braved the crowds and spent an evening at disney on a weeknight and enjoyed […]

designing holiday cards with Minted

  I used to be indecisive, until I had baby. When you are a new mom, there is no time for being indecisive, you just do it and hope it will be good enough. It is good enough, because it was your best at the moment. So pre-baby, I used to take weeks to decide […]

Holidays 2012

Happy New Year! We had a great holiday season, it went by soooo fast, and I can’t believe it’s 2013 already. I  know that it has been quiet around here for a few weeks. I decided it would be better to step away from the blog for a few weeks and enjoy my family and […]

{Recipe} Homemade Toffee – Toffee Crack

“What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more” – Dr. Seuss I have kept that quote in my head this holiday season. I normally make a Christmas wishlist, a list I make in my head. It helps me answer the questions I get from […]

Fall photoshoot with my niece

I spent the afternoon with my niece, taking pictures of her frolicking in the garden. I love taking pictures, a ton of pictures. It’s even better when the subject is so much fun to play with. My sister dressed her up really cute.  I wish I had outfits like my niece when I was little. […]

Chocolate Peppermint Bark Cookies

One of my favorite treats that I made this holiday season was a half cookie and half peppermint bark. I know Christmas is over but I’m not over eating peppermint yet. I’ve made these three times in a span of two weeks. I’m a little obsessed, just a little. I think I will be making […]

Christmas 2011

Christmas Eve It’s our family’s tradition to celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve. Chris and I headed to my aunt’s house (same as last year) for our Christmas Eve party. We had traditional filipino dishes, including a whole roasted pig (lechon). After we ate, it was time to mingle and catch up with everyone at the […]
