December 27th, 2010

Paty and Mikala made superhero capes for Solly and Dede from scratch. They went to buy the fabric and sewed them by hand. It took them days, and was so sweet and thoughtful :) The kids loved them. Today we went shopping for food, played, the kids went for ice cream and Brad and Lewis took off to the beach to go sailing but couldn't get a boat. Tomorrow we go for a two tank dive in the morning. Hopefully, I'll get some pics :)  All is well here and we are all enjoying each other and the vacation time.

Love, Mama

The day after Christmas, beautiful breezy and slow. Went for walks, played with new toys and watched new movies.

Merry Christmas from the Mexican Caribbean

Merry Christmas From Playa. We spent a wonderful night at the Banyan Tree hotel to celebrate Gam and Pa's 51st wedding anniversary. It was luxurious and fun, and too short! We are now back at our house wrapping presents, baking cookies and queueing up It's a wonderful life... We love you all and Merry merry Christmas.
