So I was really greatful for ALL the gifts I received from family and friends back home. I got: some Bath and Body Works, pop tarts, chocolates, Abuelita Hot Chocolate, clothes, and so much more! Thank you everyone for your kindness and generosity! ;)
Among all these great things... I found the surprise of my life!!! My brothers, Isaac and Efrain, TOTALLY out did themselves.
I got CUSTARD from WILD ABOUT HARRY'S... a great custard shop (and hot dog shop) in Dallas. The flavors I got (and thoroughly enjoyed) were: cinnamon, vanilla, coffee, and coconut!!! Wow!
Oh, Harry himself helped with the packaging! Thank you Harry!!!Here's our camel driver holding an EMPTY carton. :) Who knew you could have WILD ABOUT HARRY'S in the Middle East!

So my big brother, Efrain, and I went to Mt. Sinai. It took some time getting there, but it was worth it. I didn't think I would be able to climb all the way up to the top, but my big bro didn't let me give up! Thanks Efrain! It was oh SO SO COLD, but I had a blast with my brother! :)
Efrain... enjoying life!

The "feast of the sacrifice" took place in December, and it is a commemoration of Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son, Ishmael. He did not sacrifice him as a sheep was provided for sacrifice.
The idea is to sacrifice an animal and then share the meat with those around. This is a picture of a cow waiting to be slaughtered.
