9. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? What truth... Santa is real! jk my mom was not really that creative with wrapping Santa's gifts, she used the same paper as their gifts to us, and i could tell her hand writing was the same as Santa's.

10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? I am very picky with my tree, I don't even let Jeff help (he is fine with that. He sits on the couch and drinks hot coco.).

Christmas Cookies

So this past Saturday Aj, mum and I made cookies. We spent the entire day baking and decorating. Here are some pictures of our lovely cookies :)

I am so proud of myself!

Mum and I with Aj's pretty cookies!

This was not even half of the cookies we made :)

Mum and Aj's favorite cookies.


Movie in the park

Tonight Jeff and I went to the Tampa Bay Performing Art Center to see a movie. They were playing The Christmas Story. Jeff and I have never seen the movie but it was cute. And it was really nice to do something different, next month we are going to get there earlier. I think they are playing the original Ocean's Eleven. I am excited, another movie i have not seen :)



So last night Aj and I went to go see the movie Twilight. When Aj first mentioned the idea to me if I wanted to go, I was not really crazy about it. A movie with a Vampire falling in love with a human, not really my thing. But surprising I really liked the movie.

After the movie was over Aj told me I would love the book more than the movie. If i really like the movie then i am sure i will love the book.


{my works christmas party}

This weekend my work had its Christmas Party... Oh forgot I am suppose to call it the "Holiday Party". It was nice, they took us on a dinner cruise called the StarShip.


{jeff's work christmas party}

Jeff's work Christmas Party was so much fun. We went to Gasparilla Grato (not to sure how that is spelled!) in Ybor City. We sang karaoke all night long.
