Our First Christmas Together

We had a great Christmas this year. We started off with the traditional Cuban Noche Buena feast with 13 of our closest friends here in Maputo and then on Christmas Day we went to mass with Luka for the first time. He behaved very well...his favorite part was the music. After church we went to visit his friends at the orphanage and take some Christmas cake for the kids. The ladies could not believe how big he was getting. One of them didn't even recognize him. Mass was a 8 am so we didn't open any presents in the morning. When we got back home we put his Christmas pj's back on and opened some presents. He had some gifts from friends and a couple from mommy and daddy. He wasn't really amused with the presents. His favorite thing BY FAR was the paper. You should see the photos of him enjoying playing with the Christmas wrapping. I think next year I will just wrap the wrapping paper. Here are some videos for you to enjoy.

I will work on uploading all of our photos today. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
