Okinawa, Japan - 18th December 2009

By: JaymeC

Dear Mommy,
We had lots to do! We made cookies and put them along with buckeyes in these little bags. The bags are for the Marines to take home with them along with other stocking stuffers from the Christmas party. You see, there are many single men out here who are very far from home and so Jayme's job is to try to help them (and the other families) to feel a little less lonely, especially during the holidays. So we cooked and cooked cookies!

Then we bagged them up.

Look at all these bags! 100 of them here, another woman was doing another 100. That's a lot of cookies!

Finally we also made a couple of Christmas tree cakes for the party itself. Doesn't it look yummy?

And then we were off to the party! It was at the bowling alley. They were supposed to have things outside as well, but it was raining :( This isn't a very good picture, but it was quite crowded and we didn't get to bowl at all! But here is the party itself.

But most importantly...someone very important came to the party. After he was done greeting all the children Jayme was able to ask him to take a photo with us as well. Did you know that Jayme knows Santa?! I'm very impressed. Here are all of us visiting right now with Santa!

Whew. Very tiring! I wonder what else we'll do for Christmas?
