Pedro wanted me to be sure and point out that "Jack Frost" is missing from Christmas in Iquique! Sometimes the lack of cold and snow makes us a bit sad, but on the other hand it is fun to be able to spend family time together out on the beach in the middle of December. :)
The other day Owen said it couldn't be Christmas without snow, which made us laugh because this will be his 5th Christmas and out of those five only the first was spent in cold weather! We're not sure where he got the idea but thought it was cute how he associated the two things (snow and Christmas) anyway.
