here is another favorite memory from our christmas cruise:

when we docked in cozumel, before we went on our excursion, we walked around the shopping center with mom and dad to take some pictures…

matt and i decided to have a little “date” in cozumel so we chose a cooking class as our excursion on that island. it was SO much fun! we went to this little beach resort and had the class, ate our creations for lunch, and then afterwards we had about an hour to enjoy the beach facilities. it was pretty perfect!

here we are, ready to cook!

then we made our main course… fish (or in my case, chicken) veracruz with tomatoes and olives, wrapped and steamed in a banana leaf…

then we made dessert! this was SO fun to learn! they taught us how to make rice pudding from scratch, and then we learned how to decorate our plates like a real chef!

when we got back to the dock(? pier? what is it called when its so big?) we went shopping at one of the little markets

i loved the little shopping area because they not only had a huge beautiful tropical Christmas tree, but they also had a nativity scene in the middle of all the stores! i feel like that would never happen in the US!
