Merry Christmas to all of you!! This Christmas has certainly zoomed right in!! We are gearing up for all the fun that the holiday brings! We will attend the Children's Mass at Church and Joseph will be an altar server (makes me beam with pride to see him up there). Then we will go to my parents house (just around the corner) and celebrate with our entire family and a few friends will drop in. Santa usually comes for a visit. We make our traditional Tamales a week prior but don't steam and eat them until Christmas Eve. After an evening of celebrating up to 27 of us all have a slumber party!! Yes we all spend the night, we have a pajama contest, sleep all over the place, stay up into the wee hours of the morning laughing and chatting! In the morning we all make and eat breakfast together. Then open gifts, say our goodbyes and all move onto to our other families. This year Joe, the boys and I will have Christmas Day Dinner for my parents and grandmother as we won't be traveling to see our other family until New Years Day. So we are all looking forward to a long drawn our celebration! Lucky us!!
