Christmas Cheer

Before I bombard you with posts of Christmas cheer and all the wonderful things Ellie received from Santa and our loved ones...I thought I would share this first. I have mentioned before that my brother Michael lived in Uganda for a while. Well he made some wonderful friends there and he does a wonderful job trying to stay in touch with our "new extended family".  After all the presents were opened, tummies stuffed and hugs were given out...I received a "cc" of Michael's email he was sending to Dickens. I was a nice way to end the day...Merry Christmas from the Robinsons.

Dickens and Family, 

......They have sent you, Prossy, and Laker a video to show you what Christmas is like here in America and to remind you how important you are to us. As a gift to your family, my Mom and Father have sent you some serious Shilling!! We hope that it makes your Christmas a little brighter. (I will send you the details in the next email)

Here, as we live far north of the equator, Christmas is more than a religious ceremony, or a display of wealth, or a celebration of who gets the best gift; Christmas is a reminder that even in the darkest and coldest of days, we can be warmed by the love of each other. You may be happy to watch this video, but what I know for sure is that our "Robinson Christmas" was made so much warmer by making it for you.

Hope you enjoy.

With love,


(Please note my favorite parts are my mom licking the spoon and the ugly squirrel ornament that my brothers put on the tree every year to annoy their older sister)
