We now have a "tree"!!!

Well, I just could not go Christmas without a tree in my house! I used the lid to the Mexican style washers, (the round ones that don't have spin), rope, and plastic wrapping to create a "tree".  It is small but, in the shape of a tree. I put gold netting around it with ribbon and lights. Though, we know it is not a tree, it looks sort of like one and it helps to add some Christmas cheer to the house.

I am starting to get more into the Christmas feeling. Yesterday, we took the kids to see Opercaion Regalo. One of the theaters here has a special package with the ticket, popcorn, and soda for 39 pesos. We each got that package plus a hot dog for 13 pesos each!!! It was an awesome deal and we had fun, the movie was pretty interesting! The only downside was, the theater had no heat!!! It was 11 degrees celsius outside and wet and they had no heat!!! So, I froze the whole time but, that was ok.

We are officially 5 days from the 24th and nobody has decided what we are doing for Christmas!!! Itr is supposed to be 2 of my sisters in law's responsibility but, one of them, the one who is living off of my mother in law and has more money than all of us put together has not participated in any of the festivities up until now. yesterday, Ii asked her iof they have a plan yet but, she said no, that we should all just bring food and leave it at that. I like the idea of eaverybody taking a dish but, they need to figure this out. At the rate they are going, Saturday is going to arrive and no plans for food. This is really not good, it is the first Christmas in 6 years that all of the family is together and theses people can't get their sh*t together. I will be taking some desserts and maybe something else but, it will all be what my family tradtionally has at Christmas.

Oh yeah! I got my first Christmas present for the year, this weekend!! I got a new phone!!! Yayyyy!! It is the phone that, I have been wanting for about 2 months now and like the phone I have wanted for the past 2 years but, better. It is the Samsung version of the Blackberry but, way better. I personally don't like the blackberry but, love this system. It can download and open word, excel, publisher, etc documents and has a qwerty keyboard and touch screen! I love this phone, it is awesome! I love my husband for giving it to me!!!! just another reason to love him more!!!!
This will be my last post before Christmas so, everybody have a wonderful Christmas!!! If I have time between Christmas and New Year's , I will post how our Christmas went.

Merry Christmas!!!!


  1. Planning and Mexico is an oxymoron. Buahahaha, planning in Mexico???? Sorry. It was a good laugh. You should know by now that NOTHING is ever planned until the last minute.

  2. Ha! Rita is SO right! Funny!

    Glad to see that you figured out a way to have some sort of a tree! But, I want to see a picture!

  3. I agree with Rita and Val. The only plan that I have heard of is the gift exchange. I am just assuming we are staying here at my suegras house. Picture Picture!. Merry Christmas!!

  4. I agree with all of you!! Nothing is ever planned until usually the day of. I will post a pic of the "tree" as soon as I take one. Merry Christmas to all of you!!!!
