Christmas Eve for Xela House was kind of quiet this year. Sulmy and Luisa worked until early evening. Delia wasn't feeling well and just wanted to stay in bed and rest. She said she had a bad headache. Lucero is still in San Marcos studying for her math exam. So it was pizza for dinner with some small gifts for the girls. We read the story of the birth of Jesus in the book of Luke. Brian read it in Spanish and did a pretty good job. We each had one Christmas cookie and a couple of us finished off the evening with a mocha. We love these girls and watching them grown up has been so special for us. We look forward to what 2023 has in store.
