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!

|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!|
|It was AMAZING!!! |
Then, it was time for Robert to leave out the cookies that we baked for Santa!
And we hope Santa LOVES our cookies!!!!!
