FABBY: Christmas Eve and Day at Sofia's

Victoria, Christmas Eve at her home with the presents from the two sets of grandparents and her aunts..as Santa will deliver his gifts by sled, and through the garden..you know..
Hello my sweet friends!

                       "Merry Christmas 2012 and many blessings"

 We're staying for the Christmas Holiday at my sweet daughter Sofia's house, who hosted it for the first time and did a marvelous job, in every sense..it be decorating her house, having us as guests and of course cooking. Her menu was turkey, a potato and shrimp salad, a delicious rice with coca cola she makes with dry mushrooms, stuffing, gravy and the sweet "camote" (sweet potato kind) I made. Great dessert and lots of cookies too....so much eating!!
 Here is her lovely table, although it's simple because of how she was going to fill it up with food, lol.. she aslo had her in laws and her young Sil as well.
 Here is some of the food. The turkey stuffing in the bowl with the rooster lid. The dishes were made by us at our former ceramic company and this set is for Victoria, our first grandgirl.
Our daughter Sofia with her daughter Cayetana 5.
Alejandro so proud of his grandgirls.
I added this picture of Cayetana playing the piano, as I was asked about the piano. Both my grands takes lessons, so they played Christmas carols for us and sung in French and English, as they learn both languages at their school.
My darling Alejandro...we are so blessed to be another Christmas together and may our Lord grant us many, many more celebrations of His birth...it's what I mostly ask for C'mas.

Cayetana loves to make faces, she's really so funny!
Our hosts for Christmas 2012...Sofia, her husband and our granddaughters.
 Cayetana got so tired of waiting for Santa, so she called it an evening!

Today, Christmas Day we got up at 7am because the girls just wanted to wake up to see what Santa brought them. After all the mess they did opening gifts we had beakfast and started to play with some of their games with them..Menopoly. We had a wonderful Holiday 2012. Thank you dear Lord for all our blessings.

Cayetana exausted from opening her three gifts from Santa, her other grandparents and aunts.. and two from us.

Victoria and Cayetana opening their Barbie boat they got for both from Santa.

Can't believe this is Christmas Day and in a few hours Christmas Day will be over too!

Thank you all of you for been such generous friends and for visiting all my holiday posts..you always make my day and now my entire year 2012, which in a week will be over too, leaving space for the new one, 2013 and I'm looking so forward to visiting you, and your talents, let it be tablescaping, home decorating, cooking and so much I've learned from you this year and I have inspired myself, each and everyone of you contribute so much to my love for blogging and to the happiness it brings me...so when I don't hear from any of you, I really miss you! So thank you so much and many blessings.

Luv ya all!
