Ecuador Christmas

Christmas is a much smaller holiday here, than in the US. The kids get a parade and festival, with each school age child getting a ticket for free popcorn/cotton candy and a balloon animal. That was last week in the center of town.

These boys loved Nexars moto.

 During the week there were numerous pageants at the schools, and cute pictures showed up on Facebook. 

Domenica and snowmen friends.

The skinniest Santa

Like wrangling cats, lol

We had Santa come early, saturday afternoon, as we were getting ready to leave for the pool, the girls I taught english to, came and dropped off pretty wrapped boxes for under our tree. The boxes are empty, but a cute gesture.

Again this year we spent Christmas poolside, Kimberly at The Cottages catered a dinner for the guests and a few friends and we had a wonderful day. 

On our way home, we saw many of our fishermen having fun in Centro, so we put away our sunglasses and wet bathing suits, and joined them for a while. It turned out to be a much later night, than we had aticipated, and being old...well yesterday was a whole lot of relaxing. 

The smell of fresh bread is wafting thru the walls, and Mike has made me coffee. Life is good, and another year is getting ready to wrap up, who knows what 2017 has in store for us! Good or bad, stay tuned...the adventure continues.
