Each year I post about the children's Christmas Eve parade in Cuenca. And each year as I go through the pictures to decide which ones to share with you, it brings tears to my eyes. I miss my grandchildren most at this time of the year.
Papa Noel (aka. Jim Stephens, our brother in law) was a big hit with the children. He shopped all year for small toys and passed out over five hundred toys out to delighted kids.

As I am posting this, the parade is still going on. It lasts from 10 am until 5:00 pm. Thousands and thousands of children...this is a wonderful tradition in Cuenca.
Chuck and I wish you a Merry Christmas.
