Christmas at Tenwek

Although we all missed spending the holidays at home with family (except for Heather, Anna, and Abi, who DID spend the holidays back in the States), we still had a good time here at Tenwek. Thought you'd enjoy seeing a few pictures of our weekend events.

First of all, Aunt Alyssa had all the kids over for a projector-sized viewing of Polar Express (Micah enjoyed watching it on the small screen off to the side, apparently):
Jess served a fantastic Christmas Eve dinner for all of us complete with ham, scalloped potatos, and green bean casserole. Yum!
After dinner, it was time for the Christmas Eve candlelight service, with carols and Scripture led by Jason and Eric:
Christmas Day all the kids enjoyed opening gifts at home:

If it had only been 30-40 degrees colder, we would have enjoyed a white Christmas. Oh well, the cows grazing in our front yard were a unique Kenyan touch:
And finally, we wrapped up Christmas Day by having a Happy Birthday Micah and Jesus party. Good thing Micah isn't old enough to resent sharing his birthday yet! :)
