Thank goodness for modern computer technology! We get to video conference with Mateo and Marluce in upstate Virginia. I got to watch them put the finishing touches on their Gingerbread House on Christmas Eve and such a treat. Mateo so meticulous about placing the candy just so, while Marluce sneaks little tastes of the candy before she entrusts it to her building! We see each other and talk in real time and it makes the long distance just a bit easier to manage.
