Happenings of the Gomez Family

Happy New Year!

Almost like Isidro's mom's - she makes hers with Jalapenos ūüôā

To bring in the new year as a family, Isidro is cooking Chiles Rellenos, there is a possibility of Wii bowling later in the night and a phone call to Isidro’s family in Mexico ūüôā We are also going to eat 12 grapes at midnight. ¬†It’s a Mexican/Spanish tradition where each grape symbolizes a month of the upcoming year and with each grape you make a wish for each month. ¬†Traditionally you are supposed to eat the grapes with the 12 gongs of the bell as it rings to bring in the new year.

As our first new years as a family we are excited to reflect on how our lives have changed so much in the past year and celebrate the goodness of God in our family’s life and our friends lives as well. ¬†God has been so faithful to us and we are so thankful to serve a loving and merciful God who never forsakes or abandons his people.

We hope and pray that 2012 is a wonderful year for you and your family.  We love you all so much!

Por el nuevo a√Īo¬†como una familia, Isidro est√° cocinando chiles rellenos,¬†existe la posibilidad¬†de jugar ¬†bolos de Wii¬†m√°s tarde en¬†la noche¬†y una llamada telef√≥nica¬†a la familia de¬†Isidro¬†en M√©xico:) Y vamos a comer 12 uvas a las doce de la noche. ¬†Cada una es un deseo por cada mes del a√Īo. ¬†Estas se comen una por cada campanada.

A medida que nuestro¬†nuevo a√Īo¬†por primera vez como¬†una familia, estamos muy contentos de¬†reflexionar sobre c√≥mo¬†nuestras vidas han cambiado¬†mucho¬†en el √ļltimo a√Īo¬†y celebrar¬†la bondad de Dios¬†en la vida¬†de nuestra familia¬†y la de nuestros amigos.¬†Dios ha sido tan¬†fiel a nosotros¬†y¬†estamos muy agradecidos¬†de servir a¬†un Dios amoroso y misericordioso, que¬†nunca abandona a su pueblo.

Esperamos y rezamos para¬†que el 2012 es¬†un a√Īo maravilloso para usted y su familia. ¬°Los amamos mucho!
