Our family has been looking forward to this time of the year since we got back to the United States in August. While there is no snow, (our girl’s really want to see snow) it does feel very much like Christmas. It is very different this year being around family for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. We are definitely not lonely this Christmas! In Peru it is business as usual throughout this time of year until the 24th and 25th of December. The 24th is when many people decorate there. This year we are enjoying being home and doing some Christmas traditions, one of which is building/making gingerbread houses. Here are some pictures.
