Keeping Up With The Quiroz-es

22 Dec

Hi everyone! A warm welcome to my blog.

I know December is a very busy month for many people but for me and my family it is downright cray-cray! We have lots of out-of-town guests. My niece Vanessa and her husband Luigi are here all the way from the island of Japan, my youngest sister, Kathy is down from NYC and my nephew Josh and niece Natasha are down from college (Tennessee).

The entire family gets together several times during the holiday season for several festivities. This year we’re having a “Gingerbread House Decorating Pajama Party & Cocoa Bar” at my house on the 23rd. The 24th is a huge party day in the Spanish culture, so there’s a big party at my brother’s house and then another big Christmas celebration at my cousin Alan’s house on the 25th! We also have events scheduled for the 31st and New Year’s Day. Oh, and as if that wasn’t enough, there are six birthdays to celebrate during the month as well, including my mom’s birthday on the 24th. To say the month of December is a hectic month for me and my family is an understatement.

That being said, and there is a point to all of this––he, he. I will be unplugging (well, almost) until after the new year. I may show up sporadically around Twitter, Instagram and Facebook but for the most part, I won’t be the busy little bee that I normally am, until after the holidays. To be honest, I’m exhausted already with all the preparations and the festivities haven’t even begun.

I wish you all a happy, healthy and peaceful holiday season.

    Wow, Vashti. Yes, it sounds hectic, but oh so festive! To be honest, I can’t really imagine all that. Enjoy to the max!
    Just so you know… the “Scary Faeries Ride” tonight round about midnight in Thistledown. But I’d rather think you were out having a wonderful holiday time. Merry Christmas hugs.

      Thank you, Diana! There was definitely plenty of laughter and love but not much relaxation. But that’s okay. Today I get a nice break. I can’t wait for 2018. It’s going to be a great year. 😀 xx
