Christmas Spirit 2011

Christmas Eve-Macaroni Grill With The Montano Family

The Christmas Novena With The Henaos
Catholics in many cultures have prayed the Christmas Novena (nine consecutive days of prayer), from December 16-24. It is a devotion well worth reviving, particularly in young families, for it focuses attention intensely on our expectation of the Coming King, and helps to prepare us spiritually                                           to receive him into our hearts. Special Thanks To Luz and Ramon For Hosting Our Family For One Evening.
A Very Special Spirit Was Felt.

Pre Christmas Activities With The Elisaldez Family

While preparing for Christmas The Elisaldez Family 
suffered the sad passing of Mark's Dad.
Richard Elisaldez
Rich raised 4 sons and always encouraged them to follow their dreams.
We later leaned that he was a huge part in raising his little brothers and sisters also encouraging them to do well at anything they desired.
I love the story of Rich taking his little brother Kenny to get Ritz cracker and cream cheese,                       such a sweet story.
He loved his grandchildren beyond measure and 
was the best gift giver.
I was given many gifts but my favorite was a snow globe
from the movie  " Its a wonderful life".
Despite halth challenges in his life life Rich really lived life like it was a Wonderful Life.
Rich is deeply missed and loved.
Our thoughts and prayers have been with Mark his brothers and the whole Elisaldez Family.
