Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
Fire crackers are popping outside, it is about 95 degrees in the house, presents have been opened, good food has been eaten so our bellies are full, and Jesus' birthday has been celebrated! We have had a fun filled day! We pray you will all enjoy your CHRISTmas too!


Yes, we are all under the tree! We took this pic. after all the presents had been opened. You should see some of the pics. Zach took in the process of getting in this position. Memories!
This will be Zach's last Christmas in Zambia for a long time since he will be graduating from high school in July. It has been so special to have our whole family together during this school break.


We have our big meal on Christmas Eve and then enjoy leftovers Christmas day so that I don't have to spend my whole Christmas day in the kitchen. We had a wonderful Turkey which Kevin cooked for us. Then our side dishes were: rolls, potato casserole, vegetable casserole, corn casserole, green beans, cranberry and apple casserole, and gravy. Yum Yum! We also eat on our fine china so that makes it special too.

The boys really enjoy Dr. Pepper to drink and sometimes you can find them here in Zambia. Some other goodies from the states the kids got were pop tarts, slim jims, pop rocks, junior mints, nerds, tootsie pops, and double bubble gum.


Hannah got a small little computer with learning games on it.


Zach with some fireworks that he got. We'll probably shoot them off tonight.


Justin got an ipod docking system with speakers.


After we open our presents we open our stockings. This is always everyone's favorite part!


Hannah and I both got some new ear rings for Christmas. You may not be able to tell what mine are but they are coke light bottle tops flattened out. Hannah bought them for me in an outdoor market in Lusaka. Coke lights are my favorite soft drink!


Here is a second family pic. of us.
Merry Christmas!
