Party all around

So here we are a few days before Christmas I am so excited yesterday we had a little get together with our friends to exchange gifts drink some nice coffee and eat some Panetton there is no Christmas without it.  I think we have being eating this at home since I can remember nenas Abuela would always buy it and we would sit in the kitchen table and eat and eat...although I have to tell you nenas I always buy the plain one because mami does not care for the fruits inside of it, but I promise you guys next year I will buy one with fruits in case you guys like it.

Samia your friend Alexandra gave you a scooter and I think you have not gotten off that thing only to sleep and our friend Bonnie gave us this beautiful napkins with our names the girls love it and actually is a very thoughtful gift and awesome I love it.....

Today I decided to make some cookies some call it Mexican cookies but after I taste them they taste like the cookies Zetu makes for Eid....deliciosas we are going to be shipping them off to baba's work or else I will be in lots of trouble here is the recipe try it easy very easy and very very tasty and very very fatting.

SO glad you like the napkins - I thought that was a GREAT idea of Bonnie's!
And the recipe you posted makes me think of my grandmother's cookies - called "Sand Tarts" - my great-great-great Grandmother brought that recipe over from Germany and we have been eating them every Christmas for as long as I can remember - they are delicious and bring back SO many good memories!
Miss and love you muchas!
