Christmas...in our Texas house

In the past, we've gone out to dinner to celebrate Christmas with my stepdad, Wayne.  Well this year I asked everyone to go to his house, which is actually our house (he's living in it while we're in Korea), so Connar and Parker could play on their play set in the backyard.  It ended up being really cold that evening, so they didn't get to spend too much time out there, but they did go out for a little bit.

Besides having to go next door to ask if we could borrow their can opener (it was great to see them, by the way...such nice people!....Knowing your neighbors isn't something we have the comfort of in our building in Korea, unfortunately..), we were all set with all the fixings for a fantastic dinner!!  We enjoyed some delicious fajitas, chips and queso, and guacamole.  Oh, and Kaylon even surprised me with some tamales, because she knew I had been craving them since being back in Texas.  Can you say yummy?!!

Uncle DJ downloaded at least one new game for Connar (maybe more) on his phone.  It didn't take long for him to catch on and command control of the phone for the evening!







Thank you, everyone, for indulging my craving of more Mexican food (I'll never tell how many times I actually had Mexican food while back home in Texas....) and for allowing the boys some space to run around instead of being cooped up in another restaurant.  Being back in our house for a couple hours made me really miss it (so many memories there....not to mention all the wall hangings and pictures still up decorating the walls and keeping Wayne company while he lives there :)  ), but I'm so glad we have someone like Wayne that we trust completely to take care of our house so it's in tip top shape when we move back to the U.S..  When you have a big family with so many people going in so many different directions, it definitely takes a little Christmas magic to make everyone's schedules mesh.  We love you all and were so happy we could all find an evening to get together to celebrate.
