2 spare tubes and a bunch of tamales!

This year, we decided to skip on gifts for the adults. Only for the kids. Was a lil boring so next year, we'll prolly go back to drawing names atleast. We have a big get together with the family for a tamale Eve. Somehow, it seems we are always the ones to help. Other relatives show up after the tamales are done. Is that coincidence?..Ma doesn't worry about it only cause Gina always shows up to help. Everyone loves Gina cause she's real good at spreading!

And these aren't just tamales! Jesus watched over Gina's shoulder as she helped make 'em!

mmm...homemade tamales. My grandma made some, but we haven't gotten our share yet.

Here's what I got for Christmas:



(2 pairs in black)





(my present to myself)




I also got a pair of thinsulate gloves, $100 which I'll likely use to buy a headlight, the usual after shave/soaps from grandma have yet to arrive, and family from Vegas that came to visit after we haven't seen each other for a good 8-9 years gave me a Las Vegas coffee cup.

I got a cd media cabinet (boring), a new fender electric guitar - and guess what - Tamales!

I also got about 10 solid chocolate things... I guess they are trying to fatten me up !


I bought myself some new shoes also...

Teehee. I have the 5050s on the new bike so now I have two pairs.

Awesome ! This is what not only the spirit of the holidays is all about, but what the spirit of goodwill and being kind to each other should be about all year.

Kudos !

Also got $265 in gift cards to the LBS-can't decide whether to get an overhaul for the roadie like I had planned or to put a new roadie on layaway. Suggestions? I would probably be getting either an entry level Trek or Specialized as that is what they carry.
