frightening weather


Well, okay maybe not frightening but it goes with the song. It was 100 again today. Even so, I had the house decorated for Christmas and 13 kids in the house watching Christmas videos. It was a lot of fun. They probably didn't understand the English - at least the 5 littlest ones - but they enjoyed the opportunity to see the "cinema"as they call it.

They got to see "The Little Drummer Boy," "A Charlie Brown Christmas," "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and Veggie Tales "A Star of Christmas." It was fun to watch with them and see their reactions. They laughed the most at the camel that looked like a crocodile. That was in the Drummer Boy in case you forgot. Since they have both animals they thought it was pretty funny.

I treated them to lunch as well as videos. So, we enjoyed cabbage stew with onions, potatoes and carrots. They also had some ugali - that is corn meal boiled until it stiffens up. It is kind of like a very thick paste and is pretty tasteless. It is their main staple here and no meal is complete without it. So, they had that and I just had the stew since I haven't really developed a taste for the ugali.

I hope you are having special parties and enjoying the season. Celebrate his coming in the manger and in our hearts as our Savior!
