Christmas in Los Amores





It's been a little while since I posted! We've been having lots of fun here over the Christmas break. First we had the owners Christmas party at the large palapa on Saturday December 19. It was a great party particularly as so many owners had finally arrived here. We decorated the palapa in the afternoon and the party really just carried on from there. Maureen's kids had given her a Margaritaville maker for the birthday and that was a huge hit. She had margaritas going for most of the night. We had tons of food and a great time was had by all.
Mexican's really don't celebrate Christmas the way Canadians do. We were surprised and amused to see that by Monday morning all our decorations had been carefully taken down and stored away by our maintenance people! Oh well, at least lots of us have lights and wreaths outside our homes to make it all look festive around here.
Our friends Ruth and Allison had to cancel their holiday here because of a medical issue, so we were very disappointed about that. Another time for sure!
We had mentioned to a few of our friends to drop by Christmas Eve night. We thought it would be nice to have some friends over as we are the only home with a regular size tree. Well, it kind of got a bit larger than planned as we ended up with twenty people here! It was great. I realized in the morning that we would probably need to have more food so I made about four appetizers extra-plus the stuff we already had-including home made cookies, shortbread and fruitcake. It was a perfect way to spend the night.
Christmas morning was sunny and hot- and I slept way past my usual time-not getting up until 9:30! We opened the few gifts to each other and found that Santa had left other things under our tree. We have such great neighbours! Maureen and Tony had heard me whining last year as it was the first in my memory that I didn't have a Terry's Chocolate Orange in my stocking. So, they put two under the tree for us that they had brought from Canada. So sweet-both the candy and our friends!

We spent the most part of the day visiting around or having others drop by then late in the afternoon we went to the other side of Bucerias to have dinner with our friends Linda and Loren. They had fifteen in total for dinner. It was delicious and made special with the Christmas crackers that we brought with us from Canada Costco.

Oh, by the way- I made the blue coloured nativity scene back in 1979-thirty years ago! It was a Christmas gift to my parents. I brought it back with me when I came home from Newfoundland in August after my father died. It was so special to have it with me again-knowing that it had spent so many years with my parents. 

A belated Merry Christmas to everyone!

The i - Pod nano 6th generation is smaller, is better and lighter than previous models and together with the i - Watch
wristband, it makes up for a very cool i - Watch.
Keeping your diet in check can be a challenging task with a busy hectic schedule.
I identified that the wrist band was the most beneficial - you have on it like a see so
it is really effortless to examine up on your stats - but it is bulky and
rigid so it hit my wrist bone at an awkward angle if I really
don't have on it very unfastened.
