Christmas in Okinawa

This was our first Christmas away from family and Grace's first Christmas ever. We had a really great day full of presents and a big dinner. We woke up to find that Santa had been here and then we opened all of the presents. Then it was off to getting things ready for lunch. A couple soldiers from Dustin's battery came over for Christmas lunch. We made turkey, stuffing, mashed potatos, sweet potato cassarole, and the biggest hit of all, dinner rolls. We even had some pumpkin pie for dessert!

As for the presents, Grace got some really cool toys and she loves to play with them. We all thought she would be to little to enjoy any of it but she will actually cry if we take a toy away. Some of her favorites are the pink rocking horse from Santa, the cool mirror from Uncle Andrew, and her ball from Grandma and Grandpa. We were playing with her ball yesterday and she actually rolled over!
Looks like Santa made a stop at our house!
