What happened during my holidays? Well I’ll tell you.
My family’s tradition is Christmas Eve, hosted at my Uncle Rick/Aunt Cheryl’s place again.
Traditional Family Photo:
… and these guys.
And the White Elephant Game:
It was nice to see everyone again, but it also makes you realize how long it’s really been since you last see each other – they all thought I was still working at Boudin. I haven’t been working there for six months by then but oh well. Makes for a longer conversation rather than the “oh how have you been? That’s nice.” kind of thing.
Kyle’s family was in town for the week, so we spent Christmas at his Grandmother’s.
Our family photo… in the car.
Everybody with their dogs lol.
Also, I was at work one morning and one of the wine delivery trucks was “Roth Estate” Wines. Sadly, World Market doesn’t sell it, but I was determined to find it. When I did my research, I really wanted to try the Cabernet, but it was sold out everywhere! I settled for the Sauvignon Blanc, which was alright. I don’t really do whites anymore, but it was decent enough to give it a try.
New Years Eve:
My side of the family hosts New Year’s Eve thanks to my Grandmother for keeping traditions alive, so I went over to my Aunt’s house to help prep the menu. For a few hours before Kyle came home from work early and had our own New Years Eve with the pups.
New Years Day:
Morning is Ozoni and Black Beans, so my Uncle Jerry/Aunt Sandy hosted at their place. It was the first time I’ve been there and it was NICE. House goals for sure.
Kyle had his first taste of Ozoni – he didn’t like it as much haha.
Evening is our hosting, so it was back at my Aunt’s place’s clubhouse.
I didn’t take very many photos; I was too busy eating everything haha.
Also, PLEASE tell me this isn’t the funniest fridge magnet you’ve ever seen.
I found it at my Aunt’s. Along with a photo of my Grandfather back in the day – what a handsome man lol.
