Yesterday down came all the decorations! Yep, the Christmas decorations that took hours to put up (mainly lights took a long time to hang) came down in a matter of minutes. Its sad when Dia de Los Reyes passes and the holiday season is over. In our family, tradition is that we keep everything up until Dia de Los Reyes.
What is Dia de los Reyes (3 Kings Day)? Its celebrated January 6th of every year and commemorates the arrival of the 3 wise men who brought gifts to baby Jesus. Its even more special in our house because its also my moms birthday. Yep! She is a Dia de los Reyes birthday baby. I think its pretty awesome because my moms name is Reyna and Reyna means Queen. So on the day of the 3 kings my mother a "Queen" was born. Too cute huh? We also celebrated the birth of a dear friends newborn who was also born on January 6th this year. She got named Reyna too! My mom found out and got so excited that another Reyna is in this world!
Well now the house isn't as colorful without all the decorations. I cant wait to start decorating for a new season/holiday (valentines?).
I leave you with the cutest picture ever from yesterday... my son was playing with one of our cats and when I say playing I mean literally he gave the cat toys to join in with him in playing. The cat didn't seem to mind actually. I think she just loved the attention.
