The things you hear at 2000

..such as the ice cream truck that looks like a school bus passing by in the night..playing El Chavo Del Ocho theme song on high volume.  They got in trouble with the cops and lowered the volume but it was just weird to begin with.  It’s cold in December and this is the only place that I have seen the ice cream truck pass by in the winter.

Also, El Chavo Del Ocho is something I grew up watching in Mexico with my grandparents.  It was the show to watch when my parents were younger which tells you how long the show has been on the air (it airs on Telefutura in the States in the evenings).  It is great comedy, even with the long years.

I love December. Tamales, Christmas Eve Mass depending on who we attend with, and Christmas Day festivities.

This year, we will be in our old duty station area so we may or may not attend Mass in the Capital area.  It will be a first if we do, since M and I don’t like going into ATX much.  We are not sure yet.  We are heading to see my family for a day (day trip) so that will be good for us.  M and his dad will be seeing his uncle and aunt so that will be a great comfort to M’s dad.  First year not being in AZ will help all of us deal with the changes that God has brought.  New Year’s will be in AZ but low-key as of right now.

But Christmas will be a great reminder of Who came to save us.

Wohoo!! Christmas vacation!!!

I have officially ended my last fall semester as an undergrad! Still waiting on grades but God willing & with His grace, I’ll be fine. 🙂

Busy week ahead. Slow cooking Monday & maybe a Skype conversation, a photo session Tuesday, catching up on the Frank Peretti book I bought on my way home for Thanksgiving (finally), & a small roadtrip for CHRISTmas. 🙂

Church sermon was amazing & we are getting plugged into a Sunday class next semester! 🙂 Even though it means going to two services but it’s okay. We might get involved with a small group but not sure yet.

The weather was nice & warm until the evening when it got chilly again. 🙁 Wish the weather would stay warm but unfortunately, not to be…until the summer. 🙂 We are loving it here but miss some areas & friends from our previous assignments. But thankful for Skype & Facebook to stay in touch. 🙂

Have a great week! Enjoy Las Posadas if you have that in your area…we missed it here 🙁

I’m leaving ya’ll with a glimpse of how our weekend went. 🙂

My Favorite Christmas Movie

My favorite movie…. that’s a hard question to answer since I rarely watch Christmas movies during Christmas. Lol.I would have to say my favorite Christmas movie would have to be A Charlie Brown Christmas
. I think the reason why is because I have watched it since I was little with my siblings and parents; it also tells the true meaning of Christmas which is Christ’s birth. It goes into the over-commercialization of Christmas which is still seen today even though the film was originally broadcast over 40 years ago.

I just love watching anything with Charlie Brown really. I still read the comics and I enjoy them the same as when I was younger and would fight with my sisters and brother as to who read the Sunday comics first. 🙂
