Getting ready for Christmas at Anna's

 Willie and Dominique came over for dinner with little Sawyer.

 One of their traditional dinners for the Christmas season is homemade tomales, which are delicious.  Amadeo's Dad has a tomale making evening each year and they make a ton of different kinds of tomales which last them for a long, long time.
 Doe is expecting again.
 After dinner Willie and Doe left and we set up the decorations.  Our main decorator was Joneaux and you can see he really enjoyed it a lot.

The stockings were hung and we were able to enjoy opening a few early presents since we sadly wouldn't be together for Christmas

 He loves his shark  book.

 Papa loves reading to all of the cute grandchildren.
We ended the evening by singing some Christmas carols.

Joneaux is THE cutest little guy! I'm so glad you got to see them for Christmas. What a blessing. :o)

We had tamales for Christmas dinner! We've turned Tex-Mex and have done it for the last 3-4 years now. So yummy!

What a cute little guy.

I haven't had tamales for years. I had a good friend in California who used to make tamales every Christmas--I miss those days.

Glad you were able to be there for Christmas.
