I appreciate the fact that you put our Santa picture on your website so fast. But really I resented some of your comments regarding my appearance and size. I'm not big or fat or chubby. I'm actually extremely handsome for my early age. And the fact that I'm so freaking tall its because my Dad is 6'4" and my momy is almost 6 feet tall. So I have my doubts about you being the sharpest pencil in the box, like Grandpa says all the time.
I know you are coming in a few weeks and I'm eager to meet you and I know I will love you forever. So if I were you I would not mention this letter to mommy or daddy to avoid friction during my first encounter with my "Mozambican" family.

I came across this video on one of the many blogs I like to read on a lazy weekend and I really fell in love with it. Not only is it a great video and the song is beautiful...but it makes me think of all the birthdays I spend away from my family and how I always wish I could be closer to them. But this is a great way to celebrate the next birthday. I can bake them a cake and made a video. The best part is that I will have the whole cake left for myself....ha ha.

This was our 2nd Noche Buena in Maputo and I made a lechon (12 lbs.) and yucca. It had been two years since the last time I made these two dishes, but I looked for the recipes and got cooking. It took about 6 hours to make the infamous pig, but in the end it was worth it and I think everyone else thought it was very tasty as well.

We are having a very HOT Christmas in Maputo. Yesterday it was about 102 degrees. We were so hot...but I got a little chilly when I opened these photos in an email I received from Marlotte, my sister-in-law in Holland. Talk about SNOW!!! The place is completely covered.
