CHILDREN AT RANCHO DE CRISTO

Hundreds of children were hosted by Hans and Nancy Benning and men from Rancho de Cristo for their annual Christmas party. Traditional tamales were made by the men at the Rancho. Hundreds of little cars were made all year long by the men, and Nancy provided gifts, a little stuffed bear for the girls.
