My Grandparents hosted us for “Christmas in Oxford.”  My extended family on my Mom’s side showed up and we spent a week together.  There was a Christmas tree (covered in goodies for our Africa life to come), Christmas dinner complete w/ a turkey, and per tradition, my Grandaddy read the Night Before Christmas for all of the cousins.

The Africa Christmas tree.

I cried when my Grandaddy read The Night Before Christmas as he does every Christmas.

The whole family.
