  • Bring me back to Christmas Day dinner 🍴 I wish I could have some lobster tails 🦞 almost every day. This was such an awesome meal. ⁣
⁣
What do you eat when you celebrate for different holidays?  We do ham on Easter, turkey on Thanksgiving, and callaloo for New Years. I can’t wait for Chinese New Year - that’s my favorite meal 🧧 ⁣

  • The rain is gone! It’s so sunny ☀️ And it’s supposed to be in the high 60s for about a week - so excited 🎉⁣
⁣
The older kids got electric scooters for Christmas🎄 but haven’t been able to take them out because of the rain. Now we are going out multiple times a day. It’s good exercise. No major injuries, yet. ⁣

  • I was so excited to try out these #japanesecosmetics! I’ve heard so many good things about @cureaquagelofficial and it’s always sold out on different websites. I was #gifted these products to try out. ⁣
⁣
The #naturalaquacuregel has been amazing with this winter weather. My skin has not been agreeing with it. It’s so dry and flaky - which has really ceased with the use of the #gentleexfoliator. ⁣

We had a fun Christmas! It’s always wonderful to get together and see everyone. A is already back at work and the kids have cabin fever. They want out, but it’s rainy and wet. They want to play with their new toys 😂🤷🏽‍♀️ ⁣⁣

How did you end up celebrating?⁣⁣
