Hi Meltingpot Readers,
Thank you all so much for the well wishes. Luckily my stomach bug was one of those fast and furious kinds. My older son and I both got it, but we were pretty much better two days later. Then of course, because life is just so funny and unpredictable, el esposo got it bad on Christmas morning. Yes, it was nasty, but our holidays were still very merry because we were surrounded by family and blessed with lots of nice gifts and a crazy feast of food.
Our Christmas dinner included fried chicken, ham, tortilla de patatas and a big pot of Mexican pozole. None of this is traditional fare for the holidays, but we decided to start some new traditions, since this was the first time our parents came to our home, instead of us traveling home. So, overall it was delightful.
And now we are tunneling out of the mountains of snow dumped on us last night. I hope all of you were graced with a joyful holiday filled with laughter and light.
