Christmas Eve

We had a fantastic Christmas Eve here in Mozambique. We went out for lunch at a nearby hotel and had wonderful steak, which is a real treat. Then we surprised the boys by taking them miniature golfing at the hotel. It is the only mini golf place I have ever seen here in Moz and although it's very basic and simple we had a great time and enjoyed the beautiful view. While mini golfing some horses came up and came across the course. Micah loved petting them. After our adventures at the hotel we came home and had some fellow American friends over for Christmas goodies. The kids also enjoyed a swim in the pool. Once our friends left to have dinner we opened up four boxes of goodies that arrived on Christmas Eve day at the post office. We allowed the boys to play with anything unwrapped and put the wrapped gifts under the tree for Christmas morning. To wrap up the evening we watch "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" as a family and tucked the boys into their mattresses that were on the living room floor so we could all sleep in the air conditioning because of the hot weather. It was a wonderful day and we will all treasure the memories for a very long time.
