Christmas in South Africa

Christmas morning- they were waiting so patiently and were spoiled rotten!

Christmas Eve dinner at my folks' home. The food was delicious!

Benjamin, Ami, Daniel, Christopher, Connor and Bradley (who you can barely see).
Second cousins.

We arrived in Johannesburg on Dec 21st and have had a delightful time of rest and relaxation. The kids have thrived on attention from their opa and nanny. The first couple of days we shopped and although we were crowded by many other late Christmas shoppers, we enjoyed it nonetheless. Brian preached at the Christmas eve service at Grace Christian Church in Primrose and afterwards we shared in an outstanding mom-made Christmas eve dinner. On Christmas day we had a braai and invited my aunt around. We also spent afternoon tea with my cousins and their families. What a blessing to be able to share the joy of knowing the Greatest Gift to us in Christ with our family and dear friends here in South Africa.
