Christmas eve this year was special as we blended traditions together. In Colombia they have a few foods that they make every Christmas eve night, and in the Alder House we share our testimonies by candle light.
It was so fun to watch Dani get excited about sharing her traditions with us! She dug in to all the ingredients necessary to make delicious cheesy balls called bunuelos (which has a virgulilla over the n, but I can't figure out how to do that on this English keyboard).
We heated up the oil and dropped those little balls into the oil and watched them closely until they started floating to the top of the oil.
She was quite the little chef!
In addition to the bunuelos, she also made natilla, which is a thick, custard like dessert. So delicious!
After all was prepared, we sat down around our Christmas table and shared our testimonies by candlelight as we ate the Colombian feast. It was a truly magical night and I felt so blessed, again, to have Dani in our lives. And to have the gospel being shared around our dinner table.
We have so much to be thankful for.
