The one bad thing about having extremely hot summers is that when winter comes, it feels really cold. We have officially acclimated. When we moved down here, I pretty much ditched all the warm winter clothing. Who is going to need ski suits, mittens and wool socks in Mexico? Well, we probably won't see any snow where we are, but everyone has been wishing for wool socks this past month!

I found a good fabric store in Guasave and went hunting for poncho material. Of course you can't buy patterns for ponchos here (you actually can't buy patterns for anything here. Tons of fabrics, no patterns.) -- once again, thank goodness for Google. Christmas morning, everyone was tickled pink and toasty warm! New polar fleece sarapes and thick fleece stockings.

Oh YEAH!!! The surprise! We bought a 27" TV and it came with a free multi-region DVD player. Four times larger screen than the one we have AND the remote control works AND now we can watch movies and select the scenes and change the language! Very cool!!!
