The day before Christmas Eve we went to my grandparents' house and celebrated with four generations of extended family.

The older girls ended the evening by playing ghost in the graveyard in the snow with my cousins' kids.
Christmas Eve was spent at my in-laws' home with more extended family, another day of feasting, and more fun presents, including science kits, dolls, craft kits, and a small microscope!
They even talked Grandpa into joining them!

Christmas morning at my parents' house started with more joyous gift-opening, followed by a Christmas feast of enchiladas, tostadas, taquitos, tamales, black beans and rice, guacamole, and more home-baked goodies for dessert than I could count! We were well and truly spoiled :).

I'm also grateful to be safely back to our hilltop home, to our puppy and chickens and woodstove and lots to keep us busy. Many blessings to you and yours....
