Víspera de Reyes / Three Kings Eve 2011

Estos días fueron bastante ajetreados para nosotros ya que estabamos celebrando el final de las Navidades y aún nos quedaban ciertas cosas que hacer relacionadas con los Reyes Magos. Así que el martes fuimos a enviarle la cartita a los Reyes y sacarnos la foto con ellos. Ayer fue el día para recoger la yerba, finalizar los detalles para cuando los Reyes nos visitaran y colocar la cajita de yerba y el agua para los camellos junto a las galletas y la leche para los Reyes debajo del árbol. Simplemente, fue maravilloso ver como ambas niñas disfrutaron cada segundo de esta tradición.

These days were quite hectic for us since we were celebrating the end of Christmas time and there were still certain things to do related to the Three Kings day. So Tuesday we went to send a letter to the Kings and to take a family picture with them. Yesterday it was the day to collect the grass, to finalize the details for the Kings' visit and to place the little box of grass and the water for the camels next to the cookies and the milk for the Kings under the tree. Simply, it was marvelous to see as both girls enjoyed each second of this tradition.
