This year we kept all the kids who didn’t have a place to go for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. On Christmas Eve we made waffles with the kids, played games, took them to Carl’s Jr. and then had the Mexican Christmas Eve dinner of tamales with beans and rice. We ended the evening with cake, ice cream and The Grinch who Stole Christmas.
For Christmas Day we had our typical Schlax Christmas with Cinimon Rolls, the Christmas story (in spanish), presents, games a movie, gingerbread house, and we invited another staff family over for games and deserts that evening.
It was an exhausting few days, especially with Alan (a VERY special needs kid) but we all had a great time together and were so blessed to be with them.
We are off for the next week to visit both my grand parents and we are very excited for a few days off and to get to spend time with family!
