Beautiful Madrid.



Madrid is a town 20 miles away from Santa Fe and every year they have a nice Christmas parade. All the houses and art galleries in the little town get decorated, the galleries offer free hot cider, hot chocolate, imported cheese, grapes, red wine and cookies. We got there early, and walked around. I met with some of the galleries owners which were really friendly and the artists explained some of their work to me. I learned so much from them.
Madrid was a miner town and later on became a ghost town. In the 60's a group of hippies and artists bought the town and they turned it into a small artsy town, full of galleries and full of little cafes. I loved it. I loved all the little galleries, the people I met there were amazing and so far my favorite gallery was one called Metallo.
Which is not the one below.

Mario got some good candy from Santa Claus.





It was cold. I really didn't mind at all, I was having the time of my life with Jared.







This is going to be our new little family tradition.
