christmas 2011 // tamales

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is tamale making.  Mmmmmmm, it's so tasty and so fun.  I love the annual arguments about how Aunt Kathy adds too much meat ("What is that, a burrito?") and how Dalin thinks he's the best, fastest tamale maker ("I'm a tamale making machine!").  It's so great to get around the table and laugh, drink, get messy, shout at the kids, and just generally soak in all the love that surrounds us.
