We just had a glorious Christmas Eve. We had a night of
Dancing, Dining, Desserts, Fun & Friends.
We had the office Elders along with our family and the Giraldez family.
Hali, Molly and I made delicious scalloped carrots, twice baked potatoes, roasted chicken breasts, Lomo Fino (beef) watermelon, cantaloupe, pasta salad, rolls, cucumber-tomato salad and hot fudge sauce and whipped cream on a ice cream cake.
Martha Giraldez arranged for these National Champion dancers to come to our home and perform the Regional Dance called the Marinera.
They were unbelievable!
They have huge Marinera Festivals here in Trujillo.
Horses also perform this dance.
We hope to take the kids to a performance by the horses also.
After the dancing and Eating, we went in and had a beautiful program
and shared traditions and Christmas memories.
It's one o'clock in the morning and the fireworks and firecrackers are still going strong. They start them at midnight here in Trujillo. They tell us they will last all night. That's fine, if they don't wake up my babies.
Merry Christmas Everyone.
