Christmas and Puerto Rico!

My husband and I just got back from vacation in Puerto Rico with our good friends, Raquel and Douglas. Raquel was born on the small, but beautiful island of Culebra, and her family still lives there. They were so kind to let us stay in their homes throughout the entire trip. We went to San Juan, Fajardo and Culebra. We had such a wonderful time and we ate SO much food. Yummy!!! I didn't want to leave. Thank you Raquel and Douglas for inviting us on this amazing vacation!! Here are a few pictures...

Ruben and Paco (Raquel's brothers) were so sweet to put welcome signs on the plane that they flew us in from San Juan to Culebra. They own the airline, Air Flamenco.

Jonathan looks frightened as he takes on the role of co-pilot next to Ruben! :)

Madison (Douglas and Raquel's son) and Jose flying in the back of the plane

The view of Flamenco beach, on Culebra, from the plane...gorgeous!!!

In the rainforest! It poured on us later! :)

The girls (Noemi, Raquel and me) went shopping in Fajardo and loved the same dress. We decided to wear them to celebrate Three Kings Day! The cutest one is Amarige posing next to me!

Before our vacation, we celebrated Christmas with our families. This is definitely my favorite time of the year as we remember the birth of our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. On Christmas Eve we always spend the evening with my parents, and then on Christmas Day we go to Jonathan's mom and dad. Check us out!

Dad and my brother got an remote control airplane from us, and they played with them until the sun went down...perfect gift! name is Toni and I am very spoiled. Merry Christmas!

Christmas with Sandy and Drake (my amazing in-laws)!

Can you tell Toni is excited about her stocking?

Before the Christmas holidays, Stacey with The Bloom Room and Liz with The Purple Iris threw a Christmas party. It was held in Stacey's beautiful new home in Arden. Thank you for a wonderful time gals!
