It is finally starting to feel like the Holidays!! 

Today was an extra special day for two reasons: first, and foremost, it was mother's day here in Panama! And second, today my family and I got together to decorate our Christmas tree... yai!

Decorating the Christmas tree is one of my favorite things to do during the Holidays. I love looking through all the ornaments and remembering how much I loved them when I was a child. We relive so many good memories during the Holidays, who wouldn't be jolly right?!

To get into the Holiday spirit, we all decided to wear silly but fun hats! Even our pets joined in on the holiday cheer ;)

Of course, the main reason we all got together today was to celebrate Mothers day! My mom is such a loving mother and friend, I can't put in words how much I appreciate having her in my life. Love you mamita!

My grandmother surprised us with a sweet gift today! She bought each of us a cute ornament to put on our tree. I love how thoughtful and sweet my grandmother is, she really makes me smile ;)

  3. happy christmas! and what a great time of year for mothers day - we really do need to take time to recognize them when they do so much hard work.
    and your dog wears the hat the best!

  4. I love that y'all are all wearing funny Christmas hats! It's so awesome how much your family enjoys being together. I love seeing your pictures when y'all celebrate!

  5. What a great way to spend the day :)

  6. As I said once, that skirt reminds me a picnic towel, but I love it! In fact I love the whole outfit. And the colors are great for the festive season.  I also apreciate the way you look comfortable with the (kind of) flats, but chic in high heels.
    In Portugal we celebrate Mother's Day on the first Sunday of May, so the day of the month isn't always the same. But I think that in the past it was celebrated on December 8th, the date we celebrate Feast of the Immaculate Conception.

    OH! and that tree! It looks great!

  7.  Thank you so much Teresa!!! The skirt doooes look like a picnic towel doesn't it? I'll have to wear it to a picnic someday! hehe.

    My mom is American (Where mother's day is in May), but we live in Panama (where Mother's day is in December). So what we do is that we celebrate both days! hehehe.

  8.  Thank you Lorena! It was definitely lots of fun ;)

  9. Thank you JB!! Yeah, we are a very silly funny bunch. Its nice to be able to joke around with all of them :)

  10.  Hahahaha I know right! The dog is just too cute with his Christmas shirt and hat. Thanks for the sweet comment Lydia!

  11. Hi Kimberly!! Thanks for all of your kinds words! I would looove to see your Christmas tree. Could you send me a link to your blog? I seemed to have misplaced it and can't find your blog anymore :(

  12. Love the cupcake ornament and that red top fits you like a glove. Happy moms day to your mom!

  13. I'm in LOVE with your outfit, Marie! <3 And the pictures are gorgeous, I love the Christmas atmosphere, it's my favourite time of year and you managed to capture it perfectly in these pics! The tree in your family home looks amazing! And the ornaments your grandma got you look amazing, cupcakes, yay! I decorated my tree a couple of days ago, and I love it, haha. We used to have a fake tree, but we got a real one this year, and I love the smell of it! Best time of year, if you ask me! :)

  14.  Yaaaii! Glad to hear you enjoy Christmas as much as I do Jody! We used to use a fake tree as well, but we changed to real ones a couple of years ago. The smell is amazing and adds so much holiday cheer to the house! Thanks so much for always leaving such thoughtful comments ;)

  15.  Thank you!!
