A wonderful Package from Spain...

I had a note from the post office in my mailbox yesterday when I got home. It said I had a package.. I got up this morning, and took my dog with me to the post office She was dressed in her orange and red sweater and looked so cute. I'll have to take pictures sometimes.. Anyway, I picked up my package... I got it from my friend, Paqui.. in Madrid Spain. She sent me some yummy Empanadas, Some Blando ( looks like a vanilla fudge) and some white chocolate covered almonds and peanuts.. I also got a wonderful Christmas Card with an angel on the front. I am trying to translate it now... I can read the part that says Faliz Navidad

She and I exchanged cookies, after we had both wanted to be in a cookie swap, but the cookie swap was cancelled after it was announced, about two days later.. We decided that we would just exchange cookies ourselves...I mailed her some of my chocolate chip cookies. She loved them..
It was so fun to exchange with her.. Thanks, Paqui!

My kids have both been invited to a birthday party today for one of their mutual friends that turns 13 today. I will probably do a little Christmas shopping while they party..

My husband is delivering some frozen chicken in Houston this weekend.. He was playing on the 610 freeway in Houston last night, going round and round and round... He said the traffic was crazy... I have no worries though, because he is used to driving in the boroughs of New york, so I bet Houston would be a piece of cake... The freeways in New York are full of potholes..

Stay warm everyone..

I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend..
Bunches of hugs...

Hope you had a good day shopping and that your hubby gets home safely.

It's cold here, but I guess that's to be expected in December in Upstate, NY.
