Christmas '07

'This is the best Christmas ever' - my family quotes this every year, and we almost always mean it. This is one of the years that I mean it. Kim, Chloe and I had a really special time together. Chloe is a such a blast. At 14 months she is walking and communicating like a professional baby. She has her mother's sweet heart and her daddy's good looks.

This year we got up, opened one of Chloe's 30 or 40 presents then had breakfast. Kim has initiated a family tradition of Beignets (french doughnuts) for Christmas breakfast. We then went to a 10:00 Christmas service at church which was great. We had an awesome time worshiping God with our spiritual family that we love dearly. We then came home for a few more presents before going to lunch with my boss and his family and friends (Paulo and Mara) at their home. Paulo and Mara have 4 beautiful daughters who played with Chloe and Chloe loved them. We then went to Josh and Amy's for Christmas dinner with friends and family from church. We had an awesome time. I have a total of 3 weeks off over the holidays (one of the many attractions of NZ). We've already enjoyed my first week off, just being together and chillin' at the house and with friends. We're house sitting for our adopted NZ family at their home on Bucklands Beach for a few days.

Here's a little video of our Christmas. Music is provided courtesy of our church's recently released cd.
