Our first Christmas in Yaounde is not bad at all!! Wherever we are we stick with our little tradition that we started since Claire came into our life. On the night of Christmas Eve I usually prepare a good dinner...after dinner Jeff will put the star topper on the Christmas tree and then later before going to bed Jeff and Claire will bake a cookies for Santa and we put claire to bed...of course Jeff eats the cookies and drinks the milk to make Claire think that Santa stopped by and brought her presents. Christmas morning we woke up with excitement especially Claire and I! So still in our pajamas the three of us sat under the Christmas tree and start looking for our name on each gift. I'm happy with what I got this year, the Cameroon home soccer jersey is so cool!!! Thanks baby! I also got a wii which is the reason my shoulder is hurting now hehehe..and of course my swiss army watch that is on my wish list and to top it all my Bobby Flay collection has expanded and I thank my loving Mom in law for that beautiful gift. Claire got a outdoor goal set with a soccer ball and some accessories for field hockey and lacrosse. She really likes it and is kicking the ball all the time now! She also got a KidJam musical toy from Grandma...she's really enjoying that too, and is already making different music and mixes. We went over to our friends place in the afternoon and had a BBQ...some burgers and chicken, plus some fish and my ratatouille. We had a great time...Claire and the girls went swimming...on Christmas day! Then we all went swimming again on the 26th!! Only in Yaounde!! I'm sure we'll jump in on New Years day as well!!
