A little time with friends…Familia Mendez

Christmas is a time of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world
and being with family and friends.
One of our Christmas Traditions is having our friends, the Mendez Family
spend a few days with us after the Christmas Concert.
We visited the Trujillo Temple, we are close to having a date for the dedication…
we can just feel it coming.
President took a few photos of some giant pelicans, they were so beautiful.
Hermana Maribel y Hermana Marler, walking on the beach looking for shells and beautiful rocks.
I even found a piece of green sea glass to add to my collection at home.
Of course we ran into Sistser Gonzalez and Sister Baldeon in their area of Huanchaco!
Next it was off to the horse show and a picnic lunch.
The Paseo de Caballos, is a program of song and dance of Peru all with the Peruvian horses, 
with their very peculiar gait. 
I love the Marinera dance.
…and even more when it with beautiful horses.
We loved having our pictures taken with the performers...
Sister Farley did a little performing herself!
…and of course, photos with our favorite horse.
He always wanted to be a cowboy and have a horse.
Maybe our next house will have room for a horse or two.

We ended our days together with a family home evening of Christmas Caroling and sharing the message of Christ with others…our neighbors loved Alicia's homemade cookies.
