Well, our Christmas is turning out to be a bit interesting. We started the festivities yesterday with a Mexican Tradition. Tamales!! It is all about the gooey wonder known as Maseca!! AJ enjoyed them alot:
<%image(20081225-Christmas08 033web.jpg|448|336|AJ's Favorite was Queso Blanco con Chile Verde.)%> The funny part was AJ’s favorite was the spiciest (he’s got that Mexican blood running in him after all). Well, then we went to bed while the presents piled near the chimney (the chimney that doesn’t have a guard in front of it so we use a bookcase to cover the flume). <%image(20081225-Christmas08 039web.jpg|448|336|I love the Santa hat light.)%> AJ of course was the first up this morning. <%image(20081225-Christmas08041web.jpg|448|336|What's the matter with you sleepy heads?)%> The haul was good. Of particular interest was a ball popper and funny hats. <%image(20081225-christmashatsweb.jpg|448|336|Thank you Aunt Judy (Jacobs) for the hats.)%><%image(20081225-chballpopper.JPG|448|336|Thank you Gramps and Grandma Jackman.)%>
Unfortunately, we were supposed to go to my mom’s (Janet) house, but she was sick. Poor AJ didn’t get to deliver his presents. <%image(20081225-Christmas08 042web.jpg|448|336|AJ wants to deliver his presents.)%>
Oh and lest Denise think she got away from being in any picture I am including this one we took at Knott’s last Saturday.

It is raining here in Crestline so we went to San Bernardino (it was raining there too) and went to the Lotus Garden (Chinese food) and had fried rice, chicken, beef, and wontons.
