Christmas 2009

Sorry it has taken so long to post these pictures but, long story short, I broke my camera the day our Christmas box arrived...
For Christmas we went to Bella Vista to celebrate with Sergio's family.
Christmas is a bit different in Argentina than it is in the states.
BUT I did get to talk to my mom and dad.
a few days later Customs let us have our Christmas Box...Holy Cow!It was better than any Missionary Christmas box I received.We had tons of American food , a frying pan (yea I already told you about that) and clothes. We had so much fun having Christmas

Thanks Mom and Dad...We loved everything!

Fresh Peach Pie

I made my first ever fresh peach pie! The peaches were from the market around the corner and the crust was my mom's awesome recipe.
