Merry Christmas to All!!!

Oh I can't believe how long it's been since I have blogged.
I promise to catch up soon...and yes, New Year's Resolution (besides to stop stuffing my face) is to BLOG once a WEEK (at least).

Last night our good friends Chris and Sokoun and Sokoun's mom came all the way from San Diego.

I am so happy to be surrounded by family and such wonderful friends.
I am truly blessed.
Missing family and friends back in the US too...especially Jen and Roe.

Yesterday was our 17th Wedding mother-in-law bought us a beautiful bouquet of roses and made us a delicious Shrimp curry and other Indian delights...oh my belly is SO big now. I am fat and happy, wot can I say?

Today we celebrated first with the munchkins I teach at Lily Kids school. Johnson, the director, is SUCH a sweet man. He made an incredibly delicious turkey dinner. I couldn't believe how good it was - and it was made in (what I call) an Easy Bake Oven! It's like a giant toaster oven.

Tonight we had a buffet dinner at the Grand Hotel. It's a beautiful place...I ate mostly seafood...and dessert!

Here are some pics from last night and today - taken at our apartment, Lily Kids School and at the Grand Hotel.

Peace and love always,

I was COMPLETELY exhausted last night!!! (in a shopper's/wrapper's coma).

This was the best pic taken tonight...but the flash didn't go off. Oh well!

Nice to see you blogging again!!! Shemetra and I just had our 18th anniversary of 12/15 ... It's really something in this day and age to be married as long that, huh? Marriage ain't for sissies, that's for sure.
Love the pics ... so glad you got to spend the holiday with good friends and family.
And that's a good resolution ... blogging once a month. Think I'll take that one up myself!
You guys are the coolest ... Love to you and all of yours from me and all of mine.

Yes I am SO happy that our friends came to see us.
Hopefully, we will make it to Green Island for some R&R and SNORKELING at a BEAUTIFUL coral reef! We went last year - the fish were SO incredibly beautiful...but the water was VERY cold.
Maybe global warming will kick in this year! :)

He's a total doll.

HI Sue, great to see your blog here and all the lovely photos. Your munchkins are sooooo cute!! I want a whole bunch of them for myself, pleeeeease!

Glad to hear you had such a gr eat Christmas Sue. We've had an exceptionally brrrrrrr one here in the lowlands, but it was great as my daughter's husband finally arrived from SA on Christmas day as a surprise to her - she thought he was coming later, so it was a super big Chrissie present.

And yes, at least one post a month, and you too Mr Van O! I keep checking your blog, but you've not been there much!! Miss you both. Hugs, Vallyp
