Navidad

First of all, sorry I didn´t get these pictures up earlier BUT I thought the last post was a little more important! And I left out a few details that were important...the reason for the Olympic Fanfare playing on my blog is because just as Pablo was asking me to marry him, this song was playing on the TV with the fireworks. It was just too random and too...Chilean I guess you could say. We thought it was pretty funny! Also, I didn´t know but Pablo wanted me to pick out my own ring but he wanted to surprise me so he just got a ring and asked me but we got it exchanged yesterday and I got a new ring! I liked the old one, but Pablo insisted we go and find one I really liked. When I saw this one, I really liked it but it isn´t really a Becki ring. After I tried it on, I totally fell in love. So here´s a picture of my new ring...Now, on to Christmas pictures. We had a nice Christmas Eve dinner with Pablo´s parents and the elders from my ward. Not very many of the pictures turned out because we ate dinner at like 10 pm here and it was pretty dark. After we had dinner, we played a white elephant gift exchange and it was really fun. Here´s a picture of Elder Krainik and Elder Torgerson getting ready to eat and Pablo and I with our sweet white elephant gifts!


Do I look tired? Cause I was! Oh, and the best part of my Christmas--Chorizo! Not, the sausage, but the bunny that Santa Claus brought me! I must have been good because Santa brought me the cutest, little bunny. Here are a few pictures we took at the park the other day of him.


We hope you all had a great Christmas too!
