Christmas Day

Christmas Day was a very busy day for Adam and me. It started off by going to Mom and Dad's at 8:30 to open presents with them, Erin, and Grandpa (we missed Mommom and Poppop!).

This is out of order, but I made a cake for Christmas Eve at Mom and Dad's and one for Adam's parents house.

The midwife Erin worked with gave mom a gondura, which is traditional Moroccan clothing for women.

Adam gave me a plate I wanted that says "I am the way, the truth, and the life" which is from the Bible (John 14:6) and also part of our favorite Vacation Bible School song, John 3:16.

Here is the song on YouTube

Erin gave dad traditional shoes and Erin's host mom gave Mom traditional shoes.....they are called educan.

Erin gave Grandpa a traditional hat the men wear, called terbush.

We gave dad some fancy thing for his computer!

I gave Adam a GPS. Now he doesn't have to call me to mapquest things all the time!

Then at 11:00, we headed over to his brother's house to celebrate with his brothers, nieces, nephew, and aunt

It is fun to be with a 4 year old on Christmas!

Tony and Jess opening the "Our First Christmas" ornament we gave them.

Adam got Barak Obama paper dolls. If he is missing them, I will have no idea where they are!

Everyone went in together to get Zowie a laptop. She was super excited!

Andy opening his gifts from Adam.

At 5:00, we all went over to Adam's dad and step-mom's house to celebrate Christmas.

Rodney and Luann

Everyone went in to get their dad and step mom a surround sound system.
They were very surprised!

Adam and his dad both ride bicycles and I saw this wine bottle holder and had to get it for his parents. Adam says it is not a bicycle because it has 3 wheels, but I still thought it was neat!

I had a wonderful Christmas spent with friends and family. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful family to spend the holidays with. I hope everyone else had a fabulous Christmas as well!
P.S. All of the TashelHeet words I wrote are the phonetic spelling in English because TashelHeet does not have a written form. (Tash is the language Erin speaks in her region).

Is playing with paper dolls something that Adam usually likes to do???

What did Adam get you for Christmas?
