Christmas 2012

Feeling the cold breeze makes me excited to celebrate the birthday of our Dear Lord Jesus Christ. Yet, we shall appreciate all the blessings he gives us everyday.

Last Sunday, the Bagumbayan Evangelical Church had a lunch prepared for the whole congregation. The food was good! I enjoyed every dish especially my mom's embutido. Right after the church celebration, we went to Starbucks, Festival Mall so we can get additional stickers. LOL. Then we headed to SaveMore to buy the ingredients needed for our Noche Buena. Luckily, there are fewer people there than ShopWise (we checked ShopWise for Clam Shells which are not available in SaveMore). I also bought DQ's Black Forest Blizzard so I can send an entry for their iPad Giveaway (Giveaway addict!). Then we went home. My mom prepared the Fruit Salad to be frozen.

On the 24th, My mom and my sister Kate started to prepare and cook for the Noche Buena. They started with the Mussel Soup and the Bolonese Sause. Then they had the pizza dough prepared and baked with the pizza sauce and toppings. Since I don't have anything to do, I helped them cooking Mojos, which was prepared by Kate, while my mom is preparing the Cordon Bleu at the same time. When all is done, we prepared the table and had a photo shoot for the food (which was carefully designed by Kate, Mom, and me)! And of course, before we started eating, my dad lead us in a prayer.
