Christmas Eve, Tamales & Santa

Merry Christmas Dear Friends!!!
We spent our Christmas Eve making Tamales! I am quite a mixture of different ethnicity's, a cultural mutt if you will! Haha German, Mexican, Irish, Italian, French, Scottish and more! I am Mexican on my Mother's side of the family. As a child, I can remember making Tamales on Christmas Eve with my sweet Grandpa Robert ( my Mother's Father). Rich an I want to carry that Tradition on and so we did!

The corn husks

The Beef

The Pork

Rich and Robbie

Robert's Job was to put in the olive. Well, we let him put it in one Tamale! :)

My Dad's experiment Tamale wrapped in a Banana leaf!

A finished product! A happy Robbie and a happy Grandpa!!
It was AMAZING!!!

So we

Then, it was time for Robert to leave out the cookies that we baked for Santa!

We had a wonderful Day!
