Holiday Preparations

There may not be snow on the ground, but the holidays have arrived, even to Colombia. Christmas in Colombia means people and things literally appear by the dozen in stores, malls, on public transportation, etc. Everywhere I go in Cali these days just feels busy!!! Such a hustle and bustle to get everything finished before the holidays!

I am super excited to be headed back home to snowy (14 inches this weekend!!) Minnesota in just six short days, but in the meantime we have been celebrating the holidays here with Christmas music, cookies and holidays parties!

As always NSync Home for Christmas is getting a ton of play on my ipod, cause it reminds me of Christmases growing up :)

Don't knock it until you try it. ;)

We attended Catie & Scott's annual Tree Trimming party where we decorated Colombian themed ornaments for the Christmas tree!

Kelsi models our Colombian themed ornament - El Fuente salsa bar, sangria and our favorite Reggaeton artist, Pitbull.

Demonstrating our love for all things Colombian :)

Then this weekend we helped Rita & Sam decorate their tree by painting Christmas ball ornaments!!

Christmas ornament painting party!


Beautiful drying ornaments.

Finally this weekend was full of getting gifts for people at school (secretaries, the copy guy, my principal, etc.) and making Christmas sugar cookies! Delicious! Hope everyone had a fun-filled weekend of holiday preparations!
