Our Christmas pic!

December 27th, 2010 at 04:53 am

We take a picture in front of the tree every year! See how much Ale has grown! And in this picture, there's no doubt she's MY daughter, LOL! People always remark that she looks a lot like me, but generally when I look at her, I see the resemblance to her father, rather than mine... but not in this pic! (itīs my new favorite! LOL!)

Happy Birthday CPTACECK!

Merry Christmas fellow SAers... from sunny yet "cold" El Salvador.... brrrrrrrr.... I know, I know, Iīm a wuss! Itīs only 68°F (or 20°C) but THIS IS THE TROPICS!!! I own 3 long-sleeved shirts (cotton, of course) and 1 sweater (cotton, of course)... so now my feet are freezing and I canīt breathe! My letter to Santa reads something like this:

Dear Santa,
Kindly disregard any and all previous requests, all I REALLY, REALLY want is a new nose... and no, I don{t want rinoplasty (Sp?) Iīll settle for one that actually breathes!!

thanks bunches!


hope you at least had a laugh and I wish you all the best not just today, or tomorrow, or this month, but always!!!

for Ms. Frugalista!

A picture of blue skies for you! I took this one at DDīs school, they have a couple of palm trees in their garden!

toy shopping spree!!

No, I did not go crazy... We needed the following presents:
1. for Aleīs best friend from school (birthday)
2. for Aleīs best friend since Kindergarten! (Xmas)
3. to play Secret Santa at the dance school
4. for another friendīs birthday
5. for nannyīs grand-daughter

I got invited to a Toy Show at the hotel which the people at my office prefer when they come to the country...and I could use the points they gave me for their stays to buy at the Show! yay!...

I bought:
1. a really nice lunchbox, black and pink, with a fancy kitten wearing a crown on the front. (very "tween-esque"!)
2. a set of those little skateboards that seem to be all the rage among tween boys.
3. another lunchbox (I bought 2 identical ones)
4. I bought one of those balls that you can sit and bounce on
5. A doll with an extra set of clothes and a pair of matching plastic sandals for the owner of the doll!

And I also bought Ale a special 4-in-1 handcraft kit.

All these cost $42... not bad in itself... AND I had enough points for a $25 I only paid $17!!! Iīm happy!!! Smile

Iīll use Aleīs camera to snap a picture of the loot tomorrow!
Ale already packed one of the lunchboxes, but itīs identical to the one in the picture, anyway!
