Here are some pictures for Jenn...She has been asking for Christmas pictures. I can not believe it but this has been our 5th Christmas here in Okinawa, Japan. It was the first year that the kids realized we are getting gifts and they just couldn't wait to open them. My Mom blessed us and spoiled her grandchildren this year with lots of fun toys. We were also blessed that my parents were able to watch the kids open their gifts, over the internet on Skype.
We started our first Christmas traditions this year and read the kids the account of Jesus birth on Christmas Eve from Luke's account and the Matthew account on Christmas Morning. Then they opened the gifts.
It was a lot of fun. Glenn had the joy of assembling all the new toys, he said that we are not allowed to buy gifts unless it says no assemble required. It was really fun and fun to watch Caleb try to be his little helper. We missed our family back home, but God has truely blessed us with good friend that are our family in Christ.
