Christmas Eve was a success here in Haciena. The whole park showed up along with Sal and Barb's kids, and Sal's mother and sister. There was more than enough food. We had tamales made by some of the rvers here along with, ranchero beans, turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, cold cut plate with cheeses, deviled eggs, salad, excellent cheese dip with chips, stuffed tomatoes, cranberry sauce, the best turkey dressing ever, fish kabobs, chicharron, goulash, and a myriad of desserts.
Here is "Tomas" as he came out of the oven.

The best part was after the dinner and drinks. Some of us moved to Croft and Normas' and continued the Christmas cheer until midnight. We probably kept the rest of the park up. Brian says he took Tillie (their dog) for a walk and could hear the laughter. It was truly a great evening. Not to mention the fact that if we didn't live next door I would have never made it home.
This was Christmas day in the morning. Quiet, no movement, and a great time to go for a walk around Hacienda Contreras. Santa did show up. Cassie, Derek and Theresas' daughter received several gifts from Santa including her dream gift which was a set of dinosuars. I need to take a picture of her. She is a real cutie and smart as a whip.
