Merry Christmas!

Im sitting in bed at the moment watching The Office with Magda. She's complaining that I'm not paying attention. We decided to make our own tradition for Christmas. We stayed in, made mac'n'cheese, and watched The Office. Of course, being the "old hags" that we are, we fell asleep quite  early. But overall it was a nice Christmas.

I know it's not the normal traditional Christmas that one might expect. But living overseas, living far away from family, means you have to make your own traditions.

So yesterday, Christmas Eve, is the day that chileans celebrate. Usually they all get together with their families, all cousins included. It's amazing to me how extended the families can get here. Somehow people end up siting at the Christmas dinner table with their half brother's wife's brother-in-law's daughter from his first marriage. That's not so much my case (yet). But I do have my own little version of "family" here.

I spent yesterday with the Ceron family, who have become quite my own family here in Chile. Cristobal, Ale, and their three girls hold a special place in my heart. So when they invited me over for Christmas, I couldn't say no. I went over in the morning, had lunch, helped Ale prepare some of the Christmas dinner food, did some arts and crafts with the girls. It was great.

I'm excited to think of all the years that I will get to spend with these girls, seeing them grow up. I spent last Christmas with them as well. And I imagine, God willing, that next year will be the same. So here is to a great Christmas, and many to come.
