Saturday around noon the snow started coming down. This time it was sticking. We went to the range for lunch. Nan came and met us. I then left for the airport. Flight was delayed about 45 minutes, not bad. Brrr I don't like to be cold!

Christmas 2015

Arrived in Albuquerque the morning of the 24th and it started to snow. The snow was not sticking. Went to a few stores with Kim and then back to her house. I wrapped the gifts I brought. Blas, mom and Kim went to mass. We watched a movie then went to bed so Santa would come. Blas woke up at 2,3 and 5, I heard him every time. It was so sweet he made me coffee and brought in the room at 6am for me. A little after 8am everyone was up and we opened gifts. Around 1pm damacio mom and dad came over for dinner, so did Christina and Carl and Carl jr. Nan stopped by later;) I had a good time! Hollie told me I needed snap chat and we had fun playing with this app for a while. Hollie showed Nana how to apply makeup and it looked great.

Saturday night I went to Karies for a Christmas party. This year no poker was played all year but we had the party still :) we had a delicious dinner of lasagna prepared by Karie. Played several games and I won the $$ game, Yay me, lol. Now what to buy with my winnings?  We also did an ornament exchange and I got a cute one of Santa getting ready for his big night.

Jadie and Zoey time

Today I spent the day with Jadie and Zoey! So happy I got to spend time with them. A three yr old is exhausting. Naps are needed but none were taken. Started the day at McDonald's playing on playground for 2 hours. Next went to get a pedicure and Zoey got her nails painted. Red for Jadie Purple for me and pink and green for Zoey. A bottle of pink did not make it, dropped and made a mess on floor and her pants. The owner of salon had deep fried a turkey and offered us some, he made Jadie a plate. For his first turkey it was pretty tasty. Next to the mall and build a bear. First Arf was chosen then 4 other things and then final decision was Arf aka snoopy. We took photos with Santa. Zoey wants pancakes for Christmas. A little browsing at a few stores then on to play at mall play area. Some of us didn't want to leave there lol. Overall I had a fun time!

Foodie Festival

This afternoon Miranda and I went v to check out the Foodie Festival that was held at Diablo stadium in Tempe. We had a great time! First item were delicious chocolate chip cookies with cinnamon, walnuts, oatmeal and s few other ingredients, yum! Next was a delicious steak, potato and green chili burrito. The pinapple whip(larger than her head)was next followed by fluff, this is kinda like shaved ice but not really. It had condensed milk, strawberries and mangos in it. Interesting. The final item we had was a grilled cheese was mac and cheese inside, it was good;) the rain came down most of the afternoon and staying dry was not an option if you wanted to sample the eats and we did!
