Happy Holidays from my family to yours! 😊
For those who haven’t met me yet, My name is Ally Pepito. I grew up in the Philippines and moved to the United States in 2009. My favorite part of my day is hanging out with my little family; which includes Julio Alvarado (Boyfriend), Joji (Fur Baby: age 4), and Ella (Fur Baby: age 3). This last year has been an amazing year full of memories to keep and cherish. In May 2022, I walked down the stage with my cap and gown. A week later, I started my first day at the TRPG office, as the new member of the tax team. I have spent the last six months learning about taxes and preparing to kick ass on the next upcoming tax season (Which is coming up closer each day). My favorite trip in 2022 was in June; A group of my friends and I went to Manchester, Tennessee for the Bonnaroo Music Festival. We spent a week dancing the night away, tasted amazing food, and met the kindest people. My hobbies are binge-watching Netflix shows, baking desserts, and listening to music on full blast (Since I can’t sing in tune).
As 2022 comes to a wrap. I am excited about what the new year brings. I am so happy and lucky to be part of the TRPG family. I can’t wait to continue to learn more about taxes and build stronger relationships with my coworkers and TRPG clients.
I hope you all have a safe and wonderful Holiday and a Happy New Year!
From Ally, Julio, Joji, and Ella
A year of change and a year of growth, 2022 has been a wild ride! This year we hiked in Colorado, lounged on the beach in South Padre Island, and created lots of new memories with friends and family. Weston turned 14 and is in his final year of middle school, his football team won their championship game. Emma is 12 and is crushing her 2nd year of competitive bouldering, she is ranked 5th in the region and will be headed to regionals in January.
We fill our evenings and weekends with sports, paddleboarding, game nights, and s’mores.
This year we have learned that life is exactly what you make it, and you can have everything you ever dreamed of with hard work and the support of the people around you. Wishing you and your family love, growth, and belonging this coming new year.

Happy holidays from the Comer’s! We have enjoyed another fabulous year filled with adventure and fun!
Norah (3) and Jack (1) have had a great year with a new school (daycare), where they are thriving, happy and healthy! We added a couple more obligations to our calendar as Norah picked up swimming and soccer this year. Jack has started developing an amazing personality, and his favorite things to do include exploring the outdoors, practicing any sport he sees his sister or the neighbor kids playing, and getting into anything and everything he possibly can. They have become the best of friends and it has been one of my greatest joys to witness.
This year we have taken a bunch of trips to our family farm in mid-Missouri, and it has been great to get everyone outdoors and off the grid. Over the summer, we took a family trip to Branson, MO where we spent most of our time on nature trails and spent a day at the aquarium in Springfield, MO – highly recommend it! My husband and I celebrated 5 years of marriage over the summer and took a trip to Nashville, TN, just the two of us. The highlight of that trip was the day we hiked around a nearby state park and found incredible waterfalls. We hope to bring the kids down to South Florida to visit old friends and see the beach at the beginning of the year for our next adventure!
I hope everyone has a safe and rejuvenating holiday season! Cheers to 2023!
