We had a lovely Christmas eve. We spent the day puttering around the house and watching the cousins play outside. We spent the evening at our annual Christmas eve party at Casa Pacifica. We had tamales and beans and chili and salad and many snacks and sweets. The kids played hilarious games where they had to get a cookie from their foreheads to their mouths with no hands and where they tossed marshmallows through a wreath. We sang Christmas carols and exchanged presents and tracked Santa. We spent time with friends and family and celebrated the season with lots of love and joy and merriment. I am so lucky to be surrounded with so many friends and family. I am filled with Christmas spirit.
