Last Saturday, the 18th, my friend Betty and I decided to host a little gathering for the park workers and their families to show our appreciation for what they do here in the park all year (for the first time all of my plants survived!!). Betty provided her place and turkey and together we prepared salads, breads and provided drinks. As a special surprise, we had made sugar cookies and told them about our tradition at Christmas and invited them to help decorate the cookies. We had about 8 children there and they loved it. The park owner, Cesar, and his girlfriend, Cynthia, joined us as well. Although the party was set to begin at 6 pm, no one arrived until 7ish which we knew would happen so Betty and I had a few cocktails and relaxed. I think that everyone really enjoyed it but it took a bit for all of the adults to relax, especially the wives whom we did NOT know. Of course, knowing Spanish really helps so I had Gabriela next to me and she enjoys gossiping about what is going on!!! We had a blast! She also invited us to celebrate Christmas at their house on Christmas Eve. That starts about 11 am and goes all night.......We have our own park party here on Christmas Eve so we will see how that goes........Am still feeling a little blue (actually a lot) about not being home. Call us if you get a chance!!!!

Will report back soon. Sorry to bombard you with so many posts.................SEND NEWS!
