A sweet whirlwind

Our Christmas was a sweet whirlwind of family, food, fun, games, food, presents, and food.  It looked something like this scene at my grandma's...
 except with different configurations of family at different houses.  Grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, niece and nephew, cousins and their kids, brothers and sisters-in-law(s), on both sides of the family... It's such a blessing that Anthony and I both have family in the same area and that we were able to be there with them all.

Besides all of the amazing food at my Grandma's and my Mother-in-law's on Christmas Eve, we had enchiladas, tostadas, tamales, black beans and rice, and about 500 delicious desserts for Christmas lunch at my Mom's. Yum.

Since we have been back home, it's been a whirlwind of play with all of the new games, toys, and craft kits that the girls so kindly received for Christmas.  Tomorrow, my parents, and brother and sister-in-law come visit us for a couple of days, then we head into the city to visit friends.  When I catch my breath, I'll be back :)...it may be next year by then.

Wishing you all a new year filled with peace and light!



  1. Family and food were a big part of our holiday too! Unfortunately our family is spread out all over the world so we only got to see a small part. But it was still wonderful!
    Enjoy the rest of the Holiday season!

  2. Hi baby girl, I don't know if it was quite 500 desserts, but that was close enough!


I love hearing what you have to say. Leave a comment?
