Christmas Day 2011

I loved our Christmas Day this year because of its simplicity. Each day this week we have had presents, stockings or something special so today we had no presents left to open but rather than it being an anti- climax it was a time to remember what Christmas is really about. In the morning we met with all the Christians here in Ong Sit where my mum and dad live.

After that all the children (ours and my friend Wendy’s children who also live in the same village) got together and acted out the nativity in my parents yard. This was such fun and absolutely hilarious!!

We then had the second Christmas dinner of the week…yum!

The kids chilled out in the afternoon making a model village in the yard and then in the evening we went to a local market which comes occasionally. The treat for the day was having some money to spend at the market. The kids had so much fun choosing what to buy. 

Choosing the topping for a pancake at the market….chocolate and dolly mixture!


 So wishing you all a Happy Christmas…..I will post the present pictures soon!

 Some pictures of our Christmas week. We started on Sunday with decorating the tree and each day opened a few presents. It was nice to see the children enjoying the gifts they had been given and appreciating them.
