Catching up on a few more December happenings...

As you can tell from our previous entries, a lot of our time and attention is spent getting the party to come off without a hitch.  This is especially true in the month of December.  Here are a couple of shots showing "non-party" December events.

First off, we had Isidro's birthday...This year our present to Isidro was a little different.  He has needed a new set of front teeth for a long time, so we arranged for the dentist to work on teeth that needed attention, and then we contacted a "denturist" who would go ahead and make the new teeth.

Here is a shot of Isidro with his birthday cake...showing no smile, as he did not have his new teeth yet...

 

Another shot of the cake...  

Here is a shot of the Denturist making an adjustment to the new plate...right at their front porch!

And...here is the handsome guy with his new teeth and welcome smile...

Yes...that is a smile!  Much of our time taking photos is trying to get our subjects to crack a smile, as the custom is to stare dead ahead with a straight face, when getting a picture taken...

Here's another shot of Papa Noel working the crowd at the Kid's Christmas Party!This is just one side of the crowd...

We also have a little get together with Agripina and Isidro for Christmas gift exchange...Posing with one of their gifts...a new stereo for their home...

Just before we sit down for Christmas dinner, a whole ton of local kids and their moms and siblings come over to serenade us with Christmas songs and dance.

 

 

 

The angels got a little distracted by the ocean...but fun!

 

After all the singing and dancing, we pass out 50 baggies filled with animal crackers and Christmas candy...

 

Since I have a birthday in the middle of all this frivolity, I am on the list for Agripina and Sonia and the family to prepare a birthday lasagna, and a really big birthday cake!

 

 

Here's a shot of Coquita just to end on a cute note!
