Since I was a little girl, the 24th of December has been spent with my mom’s side of the family, Anhalzer – Valdivieso, and the 25th with my dad’s side, the Plaza (and not very often with the Polanco family). This year was no exception, although only some Anhalzers celebrated together on the 24th because we had already had our big get together. On the 25th, Jax met the rest of my family, the Plazas. In Ecuador, well Latin America, and a lot of the world, families are big, because familial connections are maintained through frequent encounter and bonds are created from early stages in life. Jax, always used to get confused when I used aunt or uncle for one of my parents second cousins or the siblings, first and second cousins of my grandparents. On the 25th, he got a chance to see how close we all are and what a big part of my life they have all been.
Les quiero a todos!
