When you get older and read this, you will appreciate how lucky you are to have a birthday around the holidays in Puerto Rico.
So you thought we were finished celebrating with New Years? No way Daniela and family who reads this. We celebrated Three Kings Day this year with Daniela who is still not walking but standing up against things, falling, and climbing!
When we didn’t have Daniela, Tio Tito would always invite us to do something related to the Three Kings. He is a believer in the Three Kings so much that the house is decorated year round with figurines and portraits. One thing that I will say is that you were mesmerized by the Three Kings that were on top of Tio’s entertainment center. Everytime we went there during Christmas and even today, you were looking at the figures and pointing to them.
We went to the Castillo Serralles where we ate popcor, toured the winter wonderland inside the castle, and you were of course entranced by the music the band was playing. We hadn’t even gottend down the stairs and you were already dancing to the beat of the music. When we got close to getting popcorn, you wanted to go to the stage to see the band playing.
Tio came over to show you the light show being put on by the staff. We took our picture with the Three Kings and you were not sitting on anybody’s lap.
On Three Kings Day, we had Grandma Migdalia and Grandpa Hector come visit. They brought you a little remote operated dog and doll. We took a nap and headed down to Tio’s house. We decorated a box the night before and filled it with grass. We made sure to bring it down to Tio.
He filled it with a little gold bag and card. Inside the bag was a silver bracelet. But it was a little to big for you to keep on so I decided to put it away. He also decided to give you a phone that you can pull around. We got a call from Great-Grandma Alicia to come over the house to get a little gift from the Three Kings.
You were extra changy and did not want to sit on Alicia’s lap when we went over. She had a doll, a dress, and a picture of you and her from her birthday party. We stayed there until Maribel and Alicita came back. You went with Maribel and were mesmerized by this little moving house and train. Since it was playing music, you started dancing.
We thanked them for the gift and came back home. Overall we had a good and celebration.
