Oh, Christmas music (:

I just got $30 to iTunes the other day, so I've been buying Christmas music like crazy! Here's some new and old favorites;
"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" by Judy Garland.
"Born in Bethlehem" by Third Day.
"I'll Be Home For Christmas" by Bing Crosby.
"Mistletoe" by Colbie Caillat.
"The Winter Song" by Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson.
"Christmas Canon" by Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
"12 Days of Christmas" by Relient K.
"What Child is This?" by Zoegirl.
The entire Michael Buble "Let It Snow!" album.
"Carol of the Bells/Sing We Now of Christmas" by BarlowGirl.
"Little Drummer Boy" by The Almost.
"Greatest Time of Year" by Aly & AJ.

But I need more! Any suggestions, please?

Oh, Thanksgiving Break

Let me tell you why you were great;

-having the whole week off
-going to a traditional Chinese/Buddhist wedding
-having my sister, brother, brother-in-law, brother's girlfriend, and grandma from Chicago home
-shopping for the first time on Black Friday
-having family dinners with the whole family every night
-Starbucks dates with sister like we always do when we see each other
-singing at church
-numerous trips to Starbucks, Coldstone and Golden Spoon with the sibs
-watching my parents re-new their vows at Newport Beach Marriott where they got married 25 years ago
-a wonderful Thanksgiving
It was such an amazing break, let me tell you.

Oh, and pictures of course;

This was at my neighbor's Chinese wedding. There were 1,000 guests, no joke. And my family plus about 2 other people were the only white people. It was so great.

Is he not the cutest little man you've ever seen?!

Luckily Andrea and her family were there, or else we would've felt tremendously awkward.

Photoshoot at the park!


Nani and Jason

Jenn and Justin

The kids Auntie Bev

Black Friday

This is the only proof that I have of Nani and I waking up at 4 am to go to the mall..

Later that day..
my parents re-newed their vows!
I was the flower girl, Nani the bridesmaid, Justin the groomsman (:

Whole family plus Doug Elliott, who re-married my parents.

Doug, Amy and Gabrielle Elliott

So I end this post in a bittersweet mood;
Bitter because everyone is gone now, and school is here again :(
But sweet because I will see all of them during Christmas, and only 3 more weeks of school until Winter Break, Christmas and Chicago!!!
Oh, I'm so excited.

P.S. I apoligize that this was the longest post ever.

I just realized;

About a year ago, I witnessed one of the best nights of my life.

Read about it here.

I found this gem of a picture on Steph's blog...

Oh, small group dinners. You never fail to bore me.

My ENTIRE family is home. Everyone. Including my brother-in-law and my brother's girlf. No one is missing for once.
I love this.
Ahh, it's a beautiful day (:

My worst nightmare

I had a dream the other night that both my brother and sister died. It felt soo real. I woke up bawling. I hate dreams like that :(
