Merry Christmas all! We have been away from this blog for months – life was at a fever pitch – but we wanted to let you know that we are so thankful for our friends, family, followers, and all the people that we’re connected with. Consider this a Christmas card from Malaysia!
You may ask about the details – yes, Santa is Malay and has big black plastic frame glasses (they’re all the rage here – it was almost impossible to buy glasses that *weren’t* black framed). Cade has a reindeer on his nose and Dante is being Spiderman. The two lovely young ladies are “SantaRina’s” … Christmas here is a pretty free-forming holiday. This was the first and only time we’ve actually seen a live Santa (helper) here; in fact, we were the first to get our picture taken with him because no one else realized that’s what you do!
We send you all our love and pray for a blessed and peaceful Christmas for all of God’s beloved children and creation.
In keeping with the merry spirit – enjoy this link which will take you to a parody review of staying at a Bethlehem inn some 2000 years ago… http://www.hopeless.me.uk/hopeless/tripa/
