Christmas and the New Year in La Paz
Decorating cookies on Wyndeavor gave the kids an afternoon of fun while Kellie
fixed a traditional dinner in peace.
On the morning of the 25th, after opening our presents, we participated in a toy
give away for poor children. The criteria for receiving a toy is combined
household income of $250 (U.S.) per month. Our kids enjoyed selecting toys
for kids their same age.
All dressed up
for Christmas day, we listened to a concert in the cathedral and enjoyed
friends. L to R- Iain & Aly (Loon); Kellie, Carter; Taryn, Bennet,

afternoon, we donned bathing suits and had a fire and cookies at the
New Years Eve. We invited all the kids in the "fleet" to
participate in a piñata and marshmallow roast party on the beach. The
kids ranged in age from 3 ½ to 13. Fireworks and digging holes in the
sand kept the boys entertained until well after dark.
