so Christmas was i dont know a month ago but here is a few shots from our celebration.The weekend before Christmas we celebrated with my parents who were going out of town this year we had a very nice dinner and time of fellowship. This Christmas was our first ever without any other family members, we still had a very nice day tho even tho we missed our loved ones. we had some good food made christmas cookies and celebrated the Lords birtjh. The day after Christmas my husbands parents came out for a nice visit. They treated us all to a movie we saw big hero 6 which the kids loved.

so to close gavynns study of turkey we had a Turkish style tea party. Although it was not as authentic as we would have liked it to be it was still very fun. We had strong brewed tea (unfortunately i ran out of time an was unable to get real Turkish tea) an to go with the tea (the part the kids were most excited about i think) some turkish delight! In turkey its called rahat lokhoun and means soothing to the throat. the kids loved it i thought it was good its kind of like a jelly or chewy candy with some kind of yummy sugary coating , the flavor was nice.(maybe after seeing Narnia and reading all the hype of how when it was first made the taste testers wanted more and more, my expectations were a little high,)
then we pilled up the pillows becuase thats how the turks would have done it and we enjoyed our tea, turkish delight and each others company with some Turkish music playing in the back ground.
