Carry on with our little tradition...


Its like being with a big family on christmas. The Strickland just had another year of christmas spent in Yaounde but this time is more special. Our Friends from Duoala spent and Celebrate Christmas with us.. for the last 2 days I did a lot of cooking, Jeff helped me a lot in the kitchen he even bake cheese cake and he is a wonderful host entertaining our friends and being sensitive to their needs, making pancake for breakfast, my baby is awesome!
We had our little family tradition which is on the night of christmas eve after dinner Jeff will put the topper on the christmas tree then Jeff and Claire will bake cookies for santa before going to bed and in the christmas morning opening presents under the christmas tree. As usual santa has been good and generous to me this year I got what I wish for, many thanks to my mom in law whos been a santa to us all year round... and now we are looking forward to welcome 2011!
