The Rojas family invited us over to their home on Christmas Eve in the morning.  We visited and had saltenas.  Graver (the father) is a colonel in the military and was stationed in Georgia, teaching at a fort there.  So his children speak very good English.  He showed us a picture of a lot of the military officers and he was sitting next to the president of the country.  So he's pretty high up and hopes to become a general.  We had a nice visit.

We had a Christmas party with the missionaries.  This is the desert table.  I made the pumpkin roll.  It turned out pretty good.

Part of the group at the dinner table.

We played a game called "musical spoons".  We passed the spoons to the music.  The little lady standing up by Elder Dibb is Hermana Cortes.  She was so excited.  She had to be right in the middle of things.  Luckily, she won one of the games.  She is very competitive and is delightful to watch.

We got in groups and did a little spoof on "The Night Before Christmas" with a rat and a cat.  It was pretty funny.

The Campero family came to visit at 10:45 p.m.  In Bolivia, everyone celebrates with a big dinner around midnight, so they were all up and caroling to several families.  Their children, 3 and 5 sang right along with them.  Their dad and mom also sang some harmony.  They said that they were alone for Christmas this year (no family around) and decided to start a new tradition.

Here we are in our pajamas and roges with the Campero family.
