Christmas on the Beach

Christmas morning was a new experience for us. Coming from the land of White Christmas we instead experienced a Wet Christmas, as Alayna liked to say. In the morning we got up and enjoyed our family Christmas present - a beach vacation!

We read through the Christmas story, each of us taking turns. Then we sang a few carols and thanked God for His blessings.

Afterward we collected shells for our next Wet Christmas celebration...

...building a snowman - er... sandman.

Later, we cleaned up and went to visit our friends the Wallace family. Their apartment was just a short tricycle ride into San Juan. She had made a great Christmas dinner! (Thanks Holly!) But even better than the food was the time we spent with each other.


  1. Now that's a Christmas we can relate to!

  2. And a Happy New Year to each of you!!!
    Shalom y'all
