Christmas is coming...

Feliz Navidad! I know that most of you are making plans to celebrate Thanksgiving, but here in Santiago I am anxiously awaiting Christmas! I´ve never really been a big fan of Thanksgiving anyway, so I don´t really feel like I am missing out on much!

The other day I was itching to get in the Christmas spirit so Pablo and I talked his mom into putting the tree up and decorated! So we put on some traditional Christmas tunes and started trimming the tree! Even though we were smothered in heat, it did make me feel a little Christmas spirit in my heart! Anyone else have their tree up yet?

(Typical Pablo picture...and the bracelet with `saints´on it isn´t his! Feliz Navidad!)

How exciting!! I know Christmas is so much fun in other countries. I know in Colombia we have a blast. By the way...I thought the video on the previous post was so cute. It made me laugh. Were you able to find a job yet?

First of all: I totally love and appreciate a little Johnny Denver to kick off the holidays (great playlist!)

Taylor won't let me put up the Christmas schtuff till Turkey day is over... otherwise he knows I'd put it up in September (I've been jamming out to Mariah Carey's Christmas for over a month now... pathetic.)

love Pablo's homey stance in front of the sweet "Charlie Brown's Christmas Tree"!!!

Hi Becki! You said you're not all about Thanksgiving, but I just wanted to let you know that it won't be the same without you here! My midwife thought I'd have the baby by last Friday - at the latest - and here I am, still pregnant, so picture if you will, me laughing at your whole family as I make them incredibly uncomfortable with my presence! I wouldn't put it past your dad to make me sit on a towel the whole day.....just in case. Love you and miss you and be sure to check our blog for pics of our new little one - whenever it comes! Love you millions!

YOU WON'T BELIEVE ME BUT WE HAVE HAD OUR TREE UP FOR THREE WEEKS... NOW, I KNOW WHAT EVERYONE IS THINKING BUT, WE WERE HAVING A ROUGH MONTH AND KNEW IT WOULD CHEER ALL OF US UP. AND YOU KNOW WHAT, IT DID! NOTHING LIKE HAVING REMINDERS OF THE SAVIOR ALL AROUND YOU TO COMFORT YOU.
LOVE YOU HONEY!
