Fin de Semana / Our Weekend

Esa semana de Acción de Gracias fue de mucho trabajo, compartir en familia y de compras.

Jueves (Acción de Gracias): Este año no tuve que hacer el pavo ya que me tocó hacer una ensalada de papas. La mañana la pasé en Walgreens con mami aprovechando el 50% de descuento que había en juguetes. Luego, la tarde fue para celebrar junto a mis padres, hermana y sobrinos en la casa de mis padres.

Viernes: Las niñas no tuvieron clases así que pasamos un día muy tranquilo en la casa ellas y yo por que Pablo tenía trabajo. Para mí no hubo compras de Viernes Negro y no me gustan los lugares donde hay mucha gente.

Sábado: Una mañana muy, muy tranquila. Vimos películas, almorzamos con Pablo (cuando llego de trabajar) y luego decoramos nuestro arbolito. En la noche fuimos con mis padres, hermana y sobrinos a ver la película Tangled. A mí me encantó y las nenas quedaron fascinadas.

Domingo: Otro día más pintando. Esperamos poder terminar pronto y así poder mostrarles las fotos del antes y después.

Y tu fin de semana, ¿Cómo fue?

Annie

On this thanksgiving week was had a lot of work to do, we had time to be with the family and we did some shopping.

Thursday (thanksgiving) : This year was not mu turn to do the turkey, all I had to do was the potato salad. In the morning I went to Walgreens with my mom to take advantage of the 50% discount on all toys. Then, in the afternoon we went to celebrate the day with my parents, my sister and her kids at my parents house.

Friday: The girls did not have classes so we spent a very tranquil day at home because Pablo had to work. For me there was no Black Friday since I do not like the places where there is many people.

Saturday: Very, very tranquil morning. We saw movies, we had lunch with Pablo (when he arrived from work) and then we decorated our Christmas Tree. In the night we went with my parents, my sister and her kids to see the movie Tangled. We all loved it and the girls were fascinated.

Sunday: Another day of painting. We hope to finish soon and be able to show you the before and after photos.

And your weekend, ¿How was it?

Fin de Semana / Our Weekend

El fin de semana fue de arduo trabajo en la casa y aún no hemos terminado, wow.

Viernes: Fue feriado (Descubrimiento de PR) así que todos estuvimos en la casa y comenzamos la tarea de pintar. Cabe señalar que solo pudimos pintar la sala por que con dos pequeñas "pintando" (haciendo desastres) nos tardamos una eternidad pero ellas se divirtieron.

Sábado: Aprovechamos la tarde para realizar algunas compras, bordar y las niñas se quedaron a dormir por primera vez en la casa de mis padres. Para ellas eso fue una aventura.


Domingo: Las niñas estuvieron prácticamente todo el día con los abuelos aunque en un momento dado las tuvieron que traer a nuestra casa para que nos vieran por que nos extrañaban. Mientras, Pablo y yo pasamos todo el día pintando, lavando y limpiando.

Aún falta bastante pero, yo espero que en la semana podamos adelantar algo.

¿Cómo fue tu fin de semana?

Annie

The weekend was of arduous work in the house and we have not yet finished, wow.


Friday: It was a holiday (Discovery of PR) so we stayed at home and started to paint the house. Let me tell you that we were just able to paint the livingroom because with two small helpers "painting" (doing disasters) it took us forever but they had fun.

Saturday: We took advantage of the afternoon to make some purchases, do some embroidery and for the first time the girls went to sleep to my parents house. For them it was an adventure.

Sunday: The girls were practically all day with their grandparents although in a given moment they had to bring them back because they missed us. While, Pablo and I spent all day painting, washing and cleaning.

There still a lot to do but, I expect that during the week we can do some more.

How was your weekend?

Aloha Friday!!!!!!!!

click the button to play along with Kailani at An Island Life

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day to take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

My question is:


What do your kids want for Christmas?

My response:

My girls wants bikes, new kitchen tools, clothes, new kitchen etc.,etc.

Happy Friday

De Compras para la Navidad / Shopping for Christmas

Hace un mes que comenzamos nuestras compras navideñas por Internet. Hacer uso de tarjetas de regalos es todo un éxito y más aún cuando se trata de obtener buenos regalos y diferentes gratis, ja.

Entre las opciones que las niñas han tenido las que requieren más trabajo es la compra de bicicletas y una cocina nueva. Ya las bicicletas están y luego de haber pasado por unos momentos amargos ya que Sofia pidió una bicicleta de las Hadas de Disney y aquí no la conseguiamos. Así que nuestra búsqueda comenzó en Internet pero era super costosa sin el envío. El pasado sábado conseguimos una bicicleta de hadas para mi niña y obviamente, nosotros estamos super felices. Ciertamente, cuando las cosas están para uno llegan y así sucedió con esa bicicleta. Paola por otro lado, quiere una bicicleta de Princesas y ya la tenemos.

Otras cosas son ropa, una cocina más grande, artículos nuevos para la cocinita, etc. Pero, lo mejor es hacer las compras con tiempo y adquirir lo que verdaderamente uno quiere.

A month ago we started our Christmas purchases by Internet. Using gift cards is a great success and even more when is a matter of obtaining good and different gifts for free, ha.

Among the options that the girls have the ones that require more work is the purchase of bicycles and a new kitchen. We have already the bicycles but it took us some hard work to do so since Sofia asked for Disney Fairies bicycle and we could not find one. So our search began on the Internet but it was super costly even without shipping costs. Last Saturday we found the fairies bike for my girl and obviously, we are super happy. Certainly, when things are meant for someone they will arrive and thus happened with that bicycle. Paola on the other hand, wants a Disney Princesses bicycle and we already have it too.

Other things are clothes, a larger kitchen, new articles for the kitchen, etc. But the best is to make the purchases with time and being able to get what they really want.
