Here comes the monster! ... all Ready for Christmas!

Happy Thursday everyone! It's been a busy and interesting week... First we had family from Mexico - My aunt, her husband and their 2 boys - 13 and 9 yrs. old -  (they just left last night) it was nice! ... My 3 yr. old picked up some new words in Spanish... that's awesome! unfortunately some of the phrases she caught was:

"Ahi viene el monstruo" (here comes the monster) ... LOL! so... you can imagine how much fun she was having playing with her cousins... unfortunately things like that really stick in her mind ... and what sounded like a lot of fun during the day might be frightening at night! KIDS!

Anyway... so... the visit wasn't hard at all on us... they pretty much were out and about most of the time... I am happy they had such a nice family time! Things for most families in Mexico are way harder than they are for families in the USA... my aunt's husband works very hard! His work hours are Monday-Saturday from 7 a.m. to 10 or 11:00 p.m. and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and this is his first vacation in 16 years!!! so... I was just happy to see them all together having so much fun! They got to enjoy the pool here in our apartment complex and visited many nice places in the area! very well deserved!

My girls and their cousins... Emiliano (the 3rd one from left to right) was very disappointed to have to leave!
 Then... last night... right before they left I had to go to Choir Rehearsal, I almost cancelled because my aunt and her family were about to leave but I had to go because it was the first rehearsal after 1 month off for summer! And I am so glad I did attend! It was soooo nice! There were lots of food and desserts (unfortunately I didn't have the camera with me! I know! Unforgivable!) and everybody seemed excited to be back! Then we had some games to get to know a little more about each other (that was nice because I am a very new member both of the church and the choir!) but later then the best came... we had some time to sing but it was pretty awesome because more than focusing on who's singing what or how it's being sung we just worshiped! I was sooo needing that! It is wonderful to sing praises to our good God who cares for us! and even better to do so in the company of His people! it was great! I felt full not only in my stomach but mostly in my spirit!

And then... they were even drawing names from a bowl with all the names of the people from the choir and mine got picked up... so I won a CD with Christmas music! I was very excited because I never win anything and I just LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE Christmas Music!!! so... "Christmas: I AM READY!"

Ok... that's about it for today... sorry my post got long! I will finally have some more time to reply back and visit your blogs! don't forget to leave a comment! ... and don't forget to stop by tomorrow for our "Coffee Friday Party" it will be lots of fun! make sure you add some "coffee" to any of your posts this week and link back to us so you can LINK UP!
