Photo Essay Four – Christmas Day Family Activities
This year we made time for family after the activities in the clinic were wrapped up. Our friend, Major Emmi (retired Swiss officer) had invited us over for Christmas dinner. Due to some confusion as to what day “Christmas dinner” was to be on (apparently Chr. Dinner in Switzerland is on the 24th not the 25th) we ended up going to Emmi’s both days! She had a visitor from Australia, someone who had done an extended mission stay here about 20 years ago. It was good to get to know David and to hear his perspectives on the development of our programs.
we got back home in the evening we opened our presents. “Santa”
surprised Matthew by dropping off Barney while we were gone. He
noticed Barney right away with the other gifts when we returned. It
was fun to be part of his excitement.
He received “Lighting McQueen” pj’s from Uncle Bob and Aunt Rae so he was a very happy camper when he finally went to bed Christmas night. He also received some pretty cool underwear with racing cars, construction trucks, and fire trucks on them. Now he wants to change his clothes all the time. I’m just glad he hasn’t
been showing off his new underwear to everyone at school.
