Merry Christmas

December 26, 2014

One day late, but who can be busy blogging on Christmas Day?  We had a lovely Christmas.  We went to the Christmas Eve service at the local Protestant Church and sang carols (even a few verses in English!).  We opened our presents that evening, some over Skype with my parents. 

Christmas morning started out right with everyone sleeping until 9!!  Then a cinnamon roll breakfast, stockings, and food prep.  Finally, we joined some of our Congo teammates for a huge feast with roasted lamb, pineapple ham, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, fruit salad, homemade egg bread, bacon-wrapped green beans and many pies.  It was amazing.  And, since we had two sick babies and a four-day-old, it was chaotic and messy and festive.  (Only one of the sick babies was ours.)

That night, after kids were sleeping, we played games until 1am with friends.

Tomorrow we might even see some white – our first this winter!

If you are ignoring our Instagram feed (see sidebar of the website), here are some of our highlights…
