Hot, rainy South America Christmases used to throw me for a loop, but I think I'm getting used to them
Checking out the many gifts!
A prayer of gratefulness and blessing on our friends before present time!
Lots of joy!
I had a great time playing "monopolio" with our accountant David and oldest boy, age 11. At first David and I were chuckling to be handing play money back and forth, when every day we talk about real sums of money, LOL. The other kids gathered around to watch, advise us on real estate purchases, and roll the dice for us (or crawl all over).
Kitchen preparations underway....
Thanks to IMBA, everyone had their fill of donated chicken! (Minus yours truly, who held out for the Christmas party potluck at a missionary friend's house)
Also on Christmas Day without even trying, I actually saw all 40 of my children, fun!
I also loved being back in the international community of Cochabamba. On Christmas and the days surrounding it, I've been with people from Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Argentina, and Scotland, besides Bolivia and the US.
