Christmas - Cuban style

Although I consider myself a Southern gal there's no denying that my Hispanic roots show strong - especially at holiday time. We celebrate Christmas on the 24th with all my extended family with lots of authentic Cuban food, music, laughter and fun.
The festivities began at 1:00 and once everyone had arrived we spent time reading scriptures and considering the Incarnation of Christ as seen through scriptures and after prayer the feast began!

Typical Cuban food: Cuban pork, Black Beans, White Rice, Congris, Yuca, Salad and rolls

Aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents.

All the "littles" 

Aaron and Liz were able to join us which was lots of fun ;) 

The clan: Havi, Adri, Jared, Victoria, Hailey, Hayden, Aaron and I

We also had a Spanish "Flamenco Dancer" in our midst lol

Rachel - Love her!
After the extended family headed home my immediate family and I got together to sing and spend time together 

An intense Chess match

Liz and Caleb - I just love these 2, they are so adorable together!
