Merry Christmas 2008
PART ONE: Saskia gets a baby doll

Christmas eve was perfect this year: we stayed home, had the traditional meatball meal, sang carols, listened to internet Christmas radio and opened our packages together. Tante Annelise was here from the states. It was warm and cozy. With all the news from the states about 3 foot snow drifts and chains to go grocery shopping, our blustery 65 degree weather with no chance of even a drop of rain hardly seems like Christmas in Tacoma or Bend. Yet somehow, this evening, it still felt like home to us.
The videos here are of our packages. There are more videos to be made: Anikas two seasonal performances (one at school and one at church) for one. We hope that you'll come back more than once to sit and open our gifts with us. Thanks to all our awesome family that got gifts out the door and to us in time for the holiday. Even though we are so far away, we feel the love in every small wrapped bundle that comes to our doorstep.
Peace and a very merry Christmas holiday to all. We love you!
