|Merry Christmas Eve!|
|We had a tree and ornament making party one night. It was lots of fun, and we ended up with all sorts of cute ornaments. The tree may or may not still be hanging on the wall at La Casa Rosada...|
From their house I headed to church and we had a great service. They put together a choir for Christmas time, and I loved hearing them sing familiar carols and hymns with Spanish lyrics. How Great Thou Art (Cuan Grande es El) is really pretty in Spanish. After church I went to Elvia´s house for their annual youth get together! Sarahy and Gisselle were gracious hosts helping to make sure I didn´t feel uncomfortable. We stayed up so late talking and playing different games. A few of the kids were complaining that it was boring, but we kept trying different games. We ate a ton of food, which seems to be a big part of celebrating here. Keep in mind we were there after church, which means well after dinner time, and we ate full plates! And topped it all off with cake. Mmmm a really tasty tres leches cake. I was a happy girl.
They shot off all sorts of fire crackers (more noise than show) at midnight, and then we played a few more games. By the time I got home it was incredibly late, but I had a wonderful Honduran Christmas Eve. It´s so funny to be reflecting back in Christmas Eve, but I guess Spring Break provided the perfect time to write about my winter activities!
