More Fun Christmas happenings...

There is no doubt that our Kid's Christmas Party takes up the majority of our time and attention over the Holiday Season, but we also have other fun stuff going on.  So...here's a few shots of what else we were doing...

Agripina and Isidro, and their extended family, are an important part of our lives.  Not only do they help us do a ton of things, day to day, but they are have become good friends, over the years...here are the shots of our little get together to exchange a few gifts...

None of us are getting any younger, so when we noticed that Agripina seemed to have a kink in her back these days, we decided that one of the hardest jobs she does for her family, is to wash clothes by hand, and then hang them on the line.  Well, last year we gave them a new washing machine...and that was goood!  This year, we completed the set with a new gas dryer...

Christmas Day found us cooking a turkey and all the trimmings for a few friends...take a look...

Here's a shot of the table set up, and Rox by our special live tree...

As we were having drinks, a huge contingent of kids and moms paraded through our front gate, to show off their mobile, nativity chorus.

This fun event features the main characters of the nativity scene, complete with angels, the three kings, shepherds from the field , and Jesus, Mary and Joseph, plus their moms and siblings, and a mobile singing guitar unit.  It is also sort of like trick or treat...

The group sings enthusiastically since their voices are so amplified by the lower ceiling of the patio...

These angels are actually twins...

 

These young ladies have been singing for us for five years now...

These young "Shephards" love having another photo taken...

Coquita looks on with her pop...

 

This young shepherd is catching up on the latest news, in between songs...

Part of the rooting section...

Here is Sonia, one of our Papa Noel elves, getting ready to hand out 35 baggies of candy and animal crackers...very popular move!
After all the singing is done, the moving nativity scene moves on down the road to serenade another audience, and we all troop upstairs to enjoy Christmas dinner...

As usual, with turkey dinners, "too much is just enough", so we paused to watch the waves breaking for an hour before having Tres Leches ice cream and delicious cake for dessert...

We wish you all a great holiday season, and hope that you all have a wonderful 2014!!!

 

One more item...

I'm clicking over another mile today, but hadn't thought to write about it, since there have been so many, and I thought I would just start ignoring them--BUT--that's wasn't to be!

After lunch...Agripina, her two daughters, and two nephews showed up, singing Happy Birthday in English, bearing a huge birthday cake, lots of breaded, sauteed shrimp and corvina, and, if that's not enough, a huge pan of chicken lasagne!

Take a look...

On your birthday, calories don't count!!!  So that's gooooood!!!
