Our Christmas so far, in pictures

We made sugar cookies. It took a couple of batches to figure out the right dough, but we conquered the making-cookies-outside-of-America battle.
We had candles and decorations.

Bram's school concert was wonderful!
He was dressed as a shepherd (Spanish style)
but insisted that he was San Jose. (St. Joseph)

We had the Spanish 'delicacy' of Serrano Ham.

Our church handed out hundreds of bags of food and gifts to our community.

IT SNOWED!!! Almost felt like home.

We made salt dough ornaments.

We visited the City Council of Madrid's official Nativity scene.
It was a set up the entire city of Bethlehem.

...and there's still more to come!

I was so excited to see your cookies! I know how challenged you have been in trying to bake up good things. These look like sure, tasty winners!

Bram looks adorable!

OOH, looking forward to more!

Merry Merry Christmas to my dear Notorious Missionary in Spain!

I took a break in my blogging for a while due to back problems and then computer problems. I've been back for a short while but am so behind on reading some of my favorite bloggers recent posts.

I look forward to catching up soon.

Merry Merry Christmas and thank you so much for the work that you do!! God Bless You!
