Christmas in Mexico was, at the end of the day, simply wonderful. I am the first to admit that the first Christmas we spent away from home was not easy, I definitely had mixed feelings about it and, at points, was very homesick. I missed all the wonderful things I normal do around the holidays. Having said that, the actual day of Christmas was awesome. From start to finish the day was really relaxing and filled with a lot of fun 🙂 I snapped a zillion pictures so here are a few (okay, a bunch) of photos from our Christmas in Mexico.
On Christmas Eve we started with us reading ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas. It is a family tradition to read the book together and has, over the years, progressed from our parents reading it to us to me reading it to all of us reading it. I really love this tradition so I shot a little video of us!
A few snapshots taken on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day…
We ate dinner at El Palmoar, an amazing restaurant with incredible eats, fantastic service and a beautiful view.
After dinner, we came home with one last thing to do: break open the Christmas pinata we had purchased a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, at 11PM at night, we struggled to find somewhere to hang it or something to hit it with. After tromping around the resort for a few minutes (yes…we were that noisy family!), we came back to our hotel room and in a fit of laughter, kicked it/bashed it open. It was a ton of fun! Something we all won’t forget for quite some time.
