my reading of 2013

hi there, it's me Andrea. one of my resolutions for this year was to read eight book. first i wanted to make it twelve but i had to be realistic haha. eight was a good amount and guess what? I did it! i even read one more. this year was definitely a good one and every book was so good at their time. i enjoyed every single one of them. so happy to be able to accomplish on of my goals.
1. Ojala fuera cierto: it's a such a beautiful book about a love story full of romance and love.
2. Volver a verte: this book is the one that fallows the number 1. it's full of mystery and the end is breathtaking. 
3. Tiempo de abrazar: I bough this book and the one that fallows that (tiempo de bailar) on the States and I was not sure if I was gonna like it. but wen i started reading it i loved it. it's a sweet story about a family and especially about there marriage.
4. Tiempo de baliar: this book is about a marriage that is turning into pieces and it's ruining there family and how they trust God and get there marriage back together. as a girl of seventeen that doesn't sounds so fun but they were good and I enjoy them very much.
5. Mary slesser: is the biography of this young women how chose to fallow Christ and decided to say yes to the Lord and be a missionary in Africa. If you know me you would  know that one of the things that inspired me the most  is to read or hear missionaries story's. missionaries are so brave and full of faith + full of Christ and I want to be like that for Jesus.
6. Adoniram Judson: beautiful book about a young man that moves to Burma and raise a family there with his wife, serving and shearing the gospel NO MATER WHAT. 
7. Jadasa: is a great novel of Esther of the bible. this book took me a long time to read it and I'm happy i finish it just fine.
8. The vow: first of all, this book is nothing like the movie haha. it's way better then the movie. Loved it!!!
9. Love does: it's all about Love. Love is doing, not thinking or planing but doing. a great book to remember that.
happy reading! xoxo Andrea.

Last sunday of the year in pictures!

zoo day

on Saturday we went to the zoo. my mom's cousin from Virginia (the one that Enid stayed at the beginning of the year for five months) came to visit, so we decided it would be a good idea to take them to the zoo. the girls loved it. they recently put penguins at the zoo, so we were excited to see them for the first time. later in the afternoon we took them to Cayala. Cayala at this time of the year is so so so beautiful. we had some coffee there and walk and the girls Reid the carousel. oh and one excited thing: we saw a bugaboo for the first time, you always see it on blogs and on pictures but seeing it on real life was exciting. after that we took them back to there place and we went to have diner with some friends at Papa Jones Pizza. it was our first time trying it and it was so so good. anyways we had a pretty fun, good saturday. xoxo a+a

Christmas day

oh boy Christmas day was a very special day. we always have lunch with the family and this year each family form the family invited friends. We invited two families from church, both of them are from Bolivia and they are working in FH here in Guatemala. we had turkey and so many great dishes. this Christmas day was incredible, it was filled with family time, good food, good friends and many many laughs. it was wonderful.
we hope your christmas was great! a+a
