Trees, Christmas and Otherwise

On Christmas Day I was invited to three Christmas dinners and you know I can't say no. This part will only make sense to Puertorricans. I had a conversation with my dad and it went like this:

Papi: Tu estas como la oreja.
Aynex: Como la oreja?
Papi: Como la oreja...siempre pega al cachete!

Ok, back to gringo-talk. So first my friend Mike (a.k.a MM) invited me to his parents house in Kevil. It was a very nice dinner and I met his family and we had a very nice conversation with MM's niece, Isabelle that must be about 7 years old. Here is their Christmas Tree.


If you look closer, there is a train track with a toy train in the middle of the tree. Pretty cool. Then we went to Paulette Mentor's house were we had wine, dessert again and talked to a lot of the neighbors. Here is one of her Christmas Trees.


Finally, we went to Karen Utz's house and had more wine and dessert but I was good and had some salad too. There we listened to some great music and talked to more neighbors. Here is her Christmas Tree.


I don't know if it was the wine but the trees got smaller as the night went on. I made some machine embroidered fiber art trees as hostess gifts.
