Christmas Seguin Style

adam and i began our festivities with my side of the family in suburban seguin.
my cousin amy and i on christmas eve.
first, we went to church and then headed over to my aunt kathy's house.
we ate our traditional tamales with chile and queso. we had a very nice time but we were all missing michael.
we took our traditional cousin picture but we were missing an important person.
christmas morning came and did you know? santa still comes to visit when you're in your twenties, hah. {this pic was taken after we opened presents}
my aunt nancy needed a new stocking, so she got a HUGE one and wrote a little message for santa on it: insert tv here. too bad the note didn't work. better luck next year, nance!
nancy made us new stockings. i can tell these took a long time! thanks, NIYP!
here are some gifts that nancy wrapped. nancy has good tastes and crafty hands. ah, i just love stylishly wrapped gifts.
time to eat AGAIN. this time it's turkey. here i am feeling stuffed like a turkey.
we got gold crowns from our english christmas crackers.
here are the christmas crackers before we opened them. classy and simple gold and white.
cousin alejandro and kathy. i can tell that he loves getting to wear a paper crown with his football uniform!
alexander in one of his christmas gifts. he's got his football moves ready. now it's time to play ball!
next stop: austin with the unnasches
