This is the first year in my short 23 years of life that I have not spent the holidays at home. So naturally it was different and I was slightly missing my fam-bam. BUT…my Spanish Christmas was not too shabby. So here’s what I did this year celebrating Christmas with my Spanish family 🙂 We… Continue reading Navidad en España.
Tomorrow my family and I are heading up to Asturias (Northern Spain), to spend Christmas with Monica’s family. We’re going for a week, so during that time I won’t be posting. But fear not!

My other favorites are A Miracle… Continue reading Do you wanna build a snowman?!

When Christmas time rolls around people tend to send out Christmas cards and if you are really on top of things you send out a “newsletter” about your family and what has happened during the past year. Usually my family never gets around to sending out this life recap. Either my mom or I will… Continue reading The Year 2014.
This is a day late, but no worries, better late than never! Yesterday was a holiday, which meant no school or work for the kiddos or the parents. I decided to make sugar cookies with my munchkins and then invite some of their friends over as well. That way they could do a fun thing… Continue reading Sugar Cookies.

Pero no te preocupes hecho las galletas para ti aún 🙂 y dejando las zanahorias para los renos también. Just wanted to let you know where I was this year. I moved… Continue reading Dear Santa.
