Another Christmas has come and gone. The holidays are probably the time I miss "home" the most. Still, it was a nice holiday. The girls were knocking on our door at 7:00 a.m., the earliest time that we allow. After rousing us, they went and woke up Jacob. He is always the last one up.
We opened presents and went to have a "traditional" Christmas lunch of roasted duck and noodles. Yes, I know I was channeling the Christmas Story, but that duck is just so good.
The kids received presents from us and Santa. The family sent money, so instead of me buying them more presents with it, we gave it for them to use to buy things on our vacations. Our plan is to go to Japan in April and the U.S. in the summer, so the kids will have some money to buy some things.
