Christmas in ND


We had a very fun, but different Christmas this year.  We (Syd’s parents and sisters and us) were all waiting for Syd’s sister, Krissy, to have her baby, so we spent the Christmas weekend in Dickinson, ND at a hotel.  It was great to be all together and it was nice to have lots of time to hang out since there wasn’t any time taken up with fixing meals, etc.  The hotel had a pool with a water slide which Malachi (and others!) had a blast on.  It was really nice to go to services at Evangelical Bible Church (where Syd went in college), and sing lots of great Christmas carols–we miss that when we are in Uganda!  We finished our Christmas celebration by driving over to Montana to see both sides of Syd’s family.  It was great to be with family this year!
