glimpses of memories

Sharing with you a few photos of our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day;
glimpses of memories made,
with hopes that your Christmas too, was blessed with joy and thanksgiving!

unique Filipino-style snowflake
ingeniously constructed out of recycled goods...

serenaded with a homemade drum at the gas station

1000 piece puzzle in 24 hours

Christmas Eve anticipation


sorry, no photos of us singing carols in the dark on our deck,

trying to cool off from the 90 degree heat,

fortified with our traditional bottomless plate of Christmas cookies...

On Christmas Day in the morning...

Glory To God In The Highest

sweet Christmas calls to family
(Michael's talking on the cell phone)

the wonder of physics

Lego joy

origami cheer

evening food, and games, and prayer with friends

more carolers, still wishing us 'advance merry Chreesmas!'

pinata fun with a hockey stick ...

...a South American Christmas tradition
shared by a friend
(no, the hockey stick isn't traditional - just the pinata!)

We're full of thanks for opportunities to share
the joy and hope,
the life-giving message of Christmas.

And because of that message,
we look forward to a new year of joy and hope;
joy and hope found only in the presence of Immanuel -
the God Who is with us.

Advance Happy New Year!
