Nice end to another great year!

If you have girls then you probably already know about their love for dressing up and getting their nails done!

Some friends of ours were stationed in Jakarta, so we took a quick trip to see them while we had the opportunity. The tickets were a little high but on the day we actually purchased them the price dropped by over 60%! We just couldn't believe it. We had a great time. It's been awhile since we've seen anyone we once knew! 

The girls were excited to get back home however, because that meant putting up the Christmas tree and all the other decorations!
Not only did they help put up decorations, they also put on the decorations!

 We attended a Starbucks Christmas party again this year and one of the games turned out to be a lot of fun for Alyvia! Some kids were invited on stage with one of their parents. Then they were given a time limit to put make-up on their parent. Whoever received the most cheers and applause from the crowd won a prize. Alyvia didn't win but she had a lot of giggles about putting make-up on her daddy!

Making Sugar Cookies with friends, flour everywhere!

 We had our own Christmas party at our co-workers house. We made a lot of food and had a great time with friends who came and went through out the party. Our main dish Smoked Citrus Turkey.

Cuties having fun!

A good friend of ours in getting married! We are so excited for her and even more excited to attend her wedding in June! It will be our first time to see a traditional wedding here!

Here are some fun/funny things we've seen here:

 Do we go or stop? Not sure which one it is.

 This is the second accident on this corner we've seen. The first was a cement truck that tipped over, but we didn't have a camera with us. This one was a truck full of large rocks.

A few interesting things:

 Rainy season means lots of rain almost every day. These two pictures were taken only five minutes apart. One moment it's dark and raining and the next it has moved on.

Pasar Malam = Night Market. Yummy food and other fun sights!

 A cinnamon stick over half my size!

One of the yummy local foods, roti canai! They take some dough and spread it paper thin, fold it over about four times and fry it on a flat skillet. Sometimes you can get cheese added inside or eggs, chicken, butter and sugar, or (my persona favorite) sweetened condensed milk!

We accidentally dropped a heavy glass bottle into the sink. The sink broke but the glass bottle was unharmed.
