Tamale Day

In keeping with our Mexican heritage, we decided to tackle the tedious (yet so rewarding) project of making our favorite "present"- tamales!! With Grandma Irma/Nana's guidance and a crew of many hands, we gathered at our house for the festivities. Turns out Camryn has a secret love for tamale-making, which will definitely come in handy in the future! She had a great time with all the kids "kneading" the masa and making a huge mess!
The tamales turned out wonderful (as always), as well as the memories we all made doing it together! I just love this tradition of Christmas... Thanks everyone for being such good sports!

Is there anything more fun than being messy?

Before the fun (notice how clean everything is:)
