It's been a while since I last wrote anything in the blog. The last few months went by so fast, I almost felt like I didn't have time to breath... The kids had so much going on with TV drama, shows, catalogs and events, I went to Malaysia twice for work, John went back to the States for a week and on top of all that, we moved out of my parents' house... Everything added up to a very busy Q4, 2010.
On purpose, we all have the week between Christmas and New Year off. So, our official holiday break for the family is this week. Since John is off and Owen has his winter break, I took Ella out of school for a week and made sure that I took this week off as well.
On December 24th, we had family coming over for dinner. John made his vegetable pasta dish. This is the first time in a long time that we cooked together. Since we were the host, we didn't get to take any picture because we were so busy running around talking to everyone and getting things for everyone. Our guests didn't leave until 11:30 pm and we didn't get to bed until 12:30 am.
On Christmas day, we had friends over. We invited Joanna and Lucas' family and Taylor's family. With 5 kids and 6 adults, John had I made turkey, garlic mashed potatoes, deep fried sweet potatoes, dressing, gravy, and store bought break rolls.
Look at our full dinner spread, isn't it amazing?
Owen and Ella got a lot of presents. They opened presents with families on Christmas eve, and opened the presents that grandma sent from the States on Christmas morning, and opened presents with friends after Christmas dinner. They have been so good and made John and I so proud this year. The deserve everything they've got!
