Christmas Eve fun

We had some friends over for our traditional Christmas eve dinner of tacos. Our neighbors Ryan and Julie and their girls came over, and Cory and Roxanne and their two kids came too.

Everyone agreed that tacos for Christmas just feels right, and the homemade double decker tacos that Katherine and I make are going to make us famous.

Julie had a gift specially made for Ryan. You see, Ryan is a fan of the beanbag toss game. The great thing about it is that it is yet another "sport" that you can do while holding a beer.

So Ryan got his gift early so we could all enjoy.

Dead-eye Langston takes aim as everyone else looks on.

Maya has a bit of an unorthodox throwing style. Kind of a slow-pitch softball backspin-type toss. It was effective, though.

So Christmas in Lusaka. It's tacos. It's the beanbag game.

What it isn't is chestnuts roasting on an open fire or jack frost nipping at our nose.

Which is fine by me.
