 not the best quality...but I liked the reflections in the water...
this is at a local park...
every year they put up a nice light display...
 I can't believe it is almost Christmas..
weren't we just talking about Halloween a few days ago....
 
 we are going to meet my Dad and step Mom for lunch on Sunday...
Christmas Eve the whole clan will be over...
Christmas day everyone but my Brother and his family will be back...
 
we are doing a tamales on Christmas Eve...
a tradition of my DIL's family...
Hubby is going to teach her how to make them...
we will make enough to cover Christmas day too....
My Mom is making chili...and Mexican rice...
my daughter is making a tortilla soup....
I don't think we will go hungry at all...
Hope you are all enjoying this joyous season.....

Amber and I were discussing the Christmas menu. We are saving the big ham Louis Dean bought for next weekend when my youngest son and oldest daughter come down. Amber is thinking of an Italian meal....
Mexican sounds really good though!!
