It’s starting to look a lot like…

December 23, 2009

Christmas around here.

Paul and I are usually a bit indifferent to decorating for the season.  Two years ago we didn’t decorate the house and only at the last minute decided to buy each other gifts.  Last year we put up a few decorations we’d bought in Guadalajara the month before, but it was very minimal.

This year we bought a tree (yes, it’s artificial).  That has been joined by a huge star piñata, some icicle lights and a rope light around our big palm tree.  There are lights around our front door and a corn husk wreath.  Paul even noticed that the cut edge of our elephant ear where a leaf had been removed shows an angel!  Should we call National Enquirer?

I even knit a stocking for each of us, and I’m positive Santa knows our address here in Mazatlán.

We hope each and every one of you has a wonderful time enjoying the season with friends and family.  Hasta pronto!

    1. whoop, whoop, whoop, whoop! Raised fist in air, making a circular motion while “whooping”.

    1. Nancy, Just saw photos zoe posted on Facebook about the Christmas dinner. Everything looked so great! Your home is quite beautiful, and I like your holiday decorations. You’re blessed to be without snow! We’ve already gotten far too much. I wish you a happy and fun-filled 2010 with many good times with Consuelo!!

    1. A good choice, brightening your sala fresca with all those lights and adding all those touches, why not? Looks like you’ve settled in and made it your home. Glad I got to see your Christmas cheer.
