Wow, I cannot believe Christmas is tomorrow. After months of anticipation, the day has almost arrived. I am driving in the car right now with my family. We spent the day with my grandparents in Elmhurst, IL. First we ate out at their daily restaurant, Rainbow, and then we spent time at their house. We watched some T.V. and opened presents together. The day was pretty chill and relaxing. It was nice to spend time with them because I will not see them for another six months, because they leave to live in their San Diego home after Christmas. My grandparents were sad to say bye to us and our dog Nestle. I will definitely miss seeing them in the months to come.

Our masterpiece!

I plan on baking some more after Christmas. I spent some time looking up different new recipes. I love to bake and do not have a ton of time to do it while at school, so now is the perfect time for it. However, I will need to eventually start eating more healthy after Christmas break. During break I have been running quite a bit; I just need to start eating healthier and then I will be good to go.

I hope you all are enjoying time with your families. The holidays are such a special time and can make wonderful memories. Have a blessed Christmas!
