Christmas Eve

For Christmas Eve, we decided to have a few friends and their families over for dinner. I started cooking and on Monday and we got everything finished just in time. Friends brought dishes over also and we had tons of great food. The only little problem was that the stores were out of red food coloring for the Red Velvet Cake so we had a green one. Nobody seemed to mind!
We want to thank Dawn, Marsha, John, Cheyenne, Andrew, Travis, Anna, Sherri, John, Peyton, Shelly, Wes, Jordan, Felipe, Emma, Dean, Lauren, Brian, Stacy, Amber, Denny, Sam, Olivia, Angel, Isabel, Richie, Chad, Colton, and Grandma Mary, for coming over to celebrate Taft's first Christmas with us. Also a big thanks to Dawn and Marsha for all the clean up afterwards while I got Taft ready for bed.
After everyone was gone, Shane and I read 'Twas the Night Before Christmas to Taft and watched Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Then it was off to bed to wait on Santa.


  1. Such a great idea to have friends over on such a special day! We hope you had a Merry Christmas!

    Saw quite a few on the mainland and in Taiwan feel the student
    movement values ??Bay does have a lot of different places

    Or is the fundamental Western values ??in opposition (West Bay, half and
    half, right) of the student movement in fact, many countries have
    appeared in the usual sense of the students are more
    passionate representatives nike free running shoesare more vulnerable groups in society

    Therefore, in the developed democratic countries have a large
    number of students to participate in sports also will have broad public support, such as the Occupy Wall Street
    movement (if you just look at the news network, then you do not really
    on this with the Western media reported that there are some gaps) if the
    assault on law otherwise the government will not handle violent

    Some netizens said the agreement are generally packaged considered this point right

  4. In fact, Chinese medicine and the waste deposit and the people do not have much relationship.

    Save for the general population is not much harm, waste a lot of practitioners have disadvantages for those who do
    not fear their jobs to the country more than a few million unemployed, is not conducive to stability, but also reduce a lot of
    GDP, so the state retained
    Chinese medicine,nike free 5.0 womens Chinese medicine anyway, officials do
    not see themselves on the line, do not think that policy makers do
    not understand science.

    Chinese medicine is handed down from their ancestors, to know their ancestors passed down a lot
    of things, such as fortune-telling, alchemy, chopsticks, abacus,
    gunpowder, and our Chinese clothes, etc., are our ancestors left behind.

    Like chopsticks is the essence of our ancestors left behind, very practical
    things, foreign knives, forks have never replace our nation chopsticks.
    The contemporary Western medicine is and cutlery into China, one hundred years has
    become our mainstream treatments. Itself illustrates the problem.nike run shoes
    Ancestral heritage is that, you know, in terms of the debt
    is legal heritage.

    We are now living supplies, in addition to chopsticks, porcelain,
    there is not much foreign invention?
    Shortage is not shameful to admit, that is the beginning of insufficient

    Some people said, appliances, automotive, technology always
    said foreign good, when it comes to systems, traditions are China'
    s good, do not think about it, there is no good system can do so
    many inventions?

    Patriotism, love of nation, not forgetting the ancestors, not wrong!
    Like our parents have the right place, do not want children to say so, do not say, do not
    say you can, but also do not be like them.
    Are we no longer use computers and modern tools, but also to
    wear nike free run 3 shoesdenim, point lamp do.

    Now because of Calvary reasons, countries do not want to give up traditional Chinese medicine, Western medicine and
    traditional Chinese medicine can not let longevity, but later died of premature
    death matter, the laws of nature no one can resist. TCM to see someone willing to look chanting, anyway life is your own. Even evil fortune and
    there are people who believe, not to mention the name of science under
    the banner of "Chinese" too! ! ! ! !

    Do not use patriotic defense of traditional Chinese medicine, our
    ancestors hope my generation progress, if there is the spirit of our ancestors
    will be angry! If true patriotism and love of the nation, not as
    good as people learn Chinese clothing movement, Everbright our Han Chinese clothing,
    other nations have their own national costumes, but we Han also "light"
    way to go! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
