Christmas

It's hard to believe that this was our 7th Christmas in Africa and being hot at Christmas actually is starting to feel normal. I do admit, Christmas is the one day of the year that I miss snow but the other 364 days I am thankful it's not snowing.  The past 6 years, we have had our mission family to spend Christmas with but this year was a bit different. With everyone leaving this year, I was quite dreading being in Botswana for Christmas. BUT our God is so good and so faithful. We had a family invite us over for Christmas Eve and another family invite us for Christmas with their extended family. We are so thankful for friends!

We spent Christmas Eve with the Anderson and Dorough families. It has become tradition to swim on Christmas and this one was no different. We celebrated with swimming, grilling out, crackers/poppers, and a fun game of family feud (btw, the Turner family won).

Sweet friends

Tradition of pulling poppers/crackers. They contain a crown,
joke, and toy. Love this tradition!
