Yesterday we celebrated the kids birthday and Christmas. Hence the term “Birthmas”.
The day started out with a visit from Mrs. Alice K. (a camp friend of Nanna’s) and she brought a pink Gap sweatshirt (with ears) for Artemis and a Gap sweater with dinosaurs on it for Max. Adorable.
In the afternoon, Aunt Bib stopped by for a visit and gave the kids a card filled with green paper. Seeing as Aunt Bib follows the blog, we’ll be sure to post what we get them (when we get back).
For dinner, Nanna put on a lovely affair of roast lamb leg, authentic latin rice (chez Abuela), salads, desserts and of course lots of appetizers. The De Diegos brought a lovely floral centerpiece and of course there were Christmas crackers. We were fortunate to have Uncle Fred and Tia Ilka come as well.
The kids were spoiled with all the presents! I’ll post pictures later.
We’re just finishing up our preparations; travel insurance, preparing some food to take, loading the van. If all goes according to plan, we’ll be pulling out of here (with the entire zoo) early tomorrow morning.
Ed has done a ton of research and purchased equipment to ensure that we will have internet access at our place in Mexico. Once that happens, we’ll let you know how we can be reached. In the meantime, please don’t send us any emails unless they are urgent. We will likely have internet access for our three nights in the USA (Friday, Saturday and Sunday).
We’ll be thinking of all of you. Until next year.
