Los Reyes Magos 2013

In Argentina (and in other countries around the world) children anxiously await the days after Christmas for the 3 Wise Men to arrive at their house.

You can read about our adventures with Los Reyes Magos from last year here.

This year there wasn't even a chance that we would be able to gather grass since most of it is under several inches of snow.  We went the easy route and bought a bag of mini carrots, since we know that camels love carrots.
ZZ is going to demonstrate what we to prepare for the Reyes.
First we put the carrots in the bowl
and take them downstairs by the door.
Then Daddy brings a big bowl of water so the camels have something to drink. 
Then you have to pose for a billion pictures...
Then everyone goes to sleep and in the morning when you wake up you come upstairs and...
There are toys waiting for you! 
The camels ate the carrots and drank the water all up!
She loved looking like a princess. 
Thank you Reyes.
It was another successful 3 Kings Day.
