Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas... Mine was filled with love, laughter, hugs and kisses and a few good tears. As the years pass and the older I get the meaning of Christmas grows deeper and deeper in my heart. I enjoyed Christmas this year to it's fullest. I had the pleasure of spending it with my family. My family is truly amazing and I love them all to pieces...


Here are some great photos from Christmas Eve... First we went to my in-laws house and than spent the rest of the evening at my brother's house.


Our family portrait photo... It's blurry but it's all I have so we'll have to make it work.


My sister-in law that I love to soooo much. We get together and it's non stop talking for hours. We never run out of things to talk about.


This is a Cuban family tradition that my DH and his father do every year. They roast a pig in a caja china (chinese box). They roast the pig for about eight to ten hours. This year's was the best I've ever had.


This is a group photo of my side of the family. I love how this photo turned out... Isn't it great.


Check out D's excitement with his Snuggie... He's wanted one for sooo long and Santa finally bought it for him.

This year all I wanted was a Pandora bracelet and my DH delivered. He bought me the bracelet with four charms. My sister-in-law and Vanessa each gave me one also. This is my reaction on all my photos this year. LOL...

Today we went to Jungle Island with my cousins, Vanessa and Richard and guess who? Yes, my wonderful husband took the day off and joined us too...

Here we are full of soap suds which they consider snow. It's all good we still ran through it and the kids had a blast.

It was a super jam packed fun weekend but now I'm on vacation mode. The tree is down, the decorations are being put away and I'm getting all packed up for North Carolina. I definitely won't be posting any more until next year but before I go I want to wish you all a wonderful New Year. May this New Year bring you joy, happiness and peace. Life has it's ups and downs but how we chose to live it is up to us. So make it count.

Thank you for visiting my blog this past year. Your comments and inspirations are priceless and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

If you've read this far you are all true blogging friends... Thanks...

Hugs,

Ady
