My Christmas In the Ghetto Pics

Well, after all the baking Gina did, it was time to head to the parents house to help out with the tamales. A few hours later, the others show to eat and some gifts for the kids. Saving money is a concern so we give to the kids and pass on the adults. I've got all my bike toys already, hehehe! Turns out nice, had a big group at one time. Lots of goodies , tamales and too many little kids!Haha!

So, do I have this right? Gina is a Grandmother? She looks like she's about 25 herself, even younger in her biking clothes. I always thought you were some middle aged pervert preying upon this young, impressionable lass. Wow. She looks good!

Looks awesome! We had to settle for restaurant tamales, arroz y frijoles last night. But the albondigas soup was fresh and the view of the harbor was awesome with all of the lights. Feliz Navidad to you and yours!

Tameles are always hard to find. Store bought aren't any good. I like homemade. I've had co-workers make them for me before and I have also purchased them at the Farmers Market in the summer. Since I moved, I haven't found a "supplier" yet

Richard what you are saying is correct. But, you are missing the bigger picture. MrBeanz is GRANDPA Beanz.

Well you got part of it right except that she's 7 months older than I and has 6 grandkids!

But in all fairness, the above pics are after 2 days slaving in the kitchen and a few hours of spreading masa for the tamales.

Lil better idea of her with her hair somewhat combed and dressed froma few months ago. She's not one to doll herself too muchup but I do find something sexy about that in a pervish way, I guess!

Aint that the truth? Part of the reason my Mom makes about 15 dozen. We can only eat so much then the rest are passed out to friends and family. I pulled out a dozen for my supervisor. He was hinting when I mentioned our assembly line. He's a really cool guy so I'm taking some to him. Plus, it should look good on my review!....

Hehehe! You talking about Sarah (in the middle)? Yeah, spoken for but she'd be too much for you anyway....I went to the gym with her for about a year trianing her after she had a baby. She lifted free weights and we did kickboxing classes together. She did VERY well. Not a natural but VERY determined. Ton of leg work and abs too. I miss it since she moved to AZ. She slacked the last month or so but she was running 3 miles everyother day. Runnning, not jogging. Very strong and strong willed. She actually complained that the hubby wasn't tough enough!

My other daughter, tamale worker so she aint dolled up, is a natural. She has a medical problem right now (giving birth related, can't spell cicerian???). Something about the scar tissue. Her youngest is 2 now. We hit the gym a few months ago. She did well but found out she had the problem so stopped and put some weight back on. SHE is a natural, always been! I had her pumping iron, then do abs and aerobics.

I had her doing interval training too. Shoulder presses then do lunges, squats etc. Also jumping rope like a boxer! The trainers would approach us and say,"dam she's smooth". She can do anything and easily. With these two girls, who needs boys? I thought for a while there, they were going to physically break me.

Both have a history of beating up on boys so they might be a ltitle too dangerous for you!

I have an almost constant supply of tamales at work. Several of the production guys have either wives or mothers who make them regularly.

I happily send a few bucks their way for a couple dozen every now then.

Looks like a great family get-together. We're supposed to go out to my inlaws tomorrow. Not sure what we're having there- but likely to be chicken enchiladas.

Here in this house, tamales are something that comes out of a can.

By the way, Taco Bueno has had tamales on their menus off and on here- for whever couldn't find 'em up there.

Here's my favorite Gina pic. No disrespect intended and I'm not leering at your wife, but her figure is alarmingly beautiful. And a grandmother no less! You married well. Very well.

I completely agree, except for the part about "not Leering". She is a beauty. Trust me, I am an expert in these things

I think so!.....It's funny butt I've been telling her for 20 how beauty he figure is. Butt if you knew her, you'd see how shy and modest she is! Actually on the insecure side, something that adds to the sex appeal IMO. Girls that are nice and act it, are not so appealing sometimes.

I've had guys at my work drop jaw after getting a look at her. One guy was from a country. He said, "if she walked down the street in my town, all the guys would stop and stare". Butt it's funny cause I'll tell her of al the compliments and she'll say "'why? My butt it too big". I jsut tel her there are still some botty lovers left in the world. Not eveyone is about beanpoles!

Heck, it's not even my body and I get compliments on it!..There area couple of bumpy wooden bridges to cross on the trail we frequent. I have been behind he on the bridge as we must slow to cross at about 5 mph and I must say, I am quite the fan of a nice jiggle!

I never could understand why all my friends drafted behind her and would never move up to the front to help out. After a trip across the bridge, I can see why!..But I aint insecure about my woman, I think it's funny that guys find her figure amusing. I have nothing to worry about and she aint going anywhere!


The vid is a lil more entertaining!


And she thinks she's too fat!

Looks like you had a good time!

We had a very quiet Christmas. We have no family nearby, and the last several years we've shared the holidays with some friends of ours. This year, though, her mom and step dad moved back into town, and they are spending Christmas with them. No biggie, we invited them over for dessert, but then my youngest son came down with something and we don't know if it's contagious so we canceled out on them. Christmas in quarantine. Oh yeah.

Taco Bueno is similar to a Taco Bell, but better, a little more variety, a little more cost, still fast food though. We also have Taco Cabana (my favorite) and Taco Casa. I just figured they had Taco Bueon everywhere....maybe not.
