Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad 2010! It was the kids first Christmas in the United States and our first Christmas as a family. We enjoyed times with friends and family in IL. The kids had a great time seeing their Abuelo, Abuela, many Aunts, Uncles and cousins. Jim's mom went down to IL with us as well which was nice having her celebrate with us as well. The kids did well in the 8 hour car ride. We kept with Colombian tradition and set off fireworks on Christmas Eve and Day.
