Christmas 2009

zocodover christmas lights, 2009

With visitors, 2 trips to Toledo, and getting back to work it has taken me a while to post about this year’s holidays. But I’ve been wanting to, because they were great, and because we took a lot of pictures. I missed my family and friends back home a lot, and was feeling it especially on Christmas eve. So Juanjo and I took a walk through Toledo, taking pictures of the Christmas lights (really pretty this year!) and looking for hot chocolate. We ran into one of his old teachers who took this picture of us.

I really started feeling the spirit of Christmas with the family. As is tradition, we had dinner with family (as well as the priest Don Juan, a friend of the family), then went to midnight mass in the Cathedral (the main altar, where we took pictures at our wedding). It was a beautiful mass, I especially loved the boys choir singing Christmas carols. Then the next day, on Christmas, we had lunch with family again, and some family friends. The food was delicious and beautifully prepared as always (Thank You Marisa!), and the fire in the fireplace made everything feel cozy and homey (Thank You Tino!).
