Happy Christmas everyone! We had a great Christmas here in Taiwan! We went to an international church in Taichung for Christmas Eve, and our Christmas dinner was a double pepperoni pizza. We all got to talk to both sides of our family. Violet got some new toys, including a crinkly one that you’ll see in the video. She played with it for at least an hour straight. Also, Violet went to bed easily last night, which was her Christmas present to us!

    Thank god everyone seems to be alright. I was in an earthquake in Northridge California that was a 6.7 or something like that and it was very scarey and resulted in death tolls….thus I was very fearful seeing the yahoo home page report a quake. Ironic I went to bed the other night wondering if Taiwan will have an earthquake- it is more the reason we need to get our little ones back here where we only have crazy snowstorms in Chicago!!! Thanks for the update…. hopfully all our children are okay and the foster parents too.

    Happy Belated Christmas Ben, Bethany and Violet! I log on every day to see what you guys have been up to! I’m glad the earthquake wasn’t bad for you! Violet is simply adorable!!!!! I so wish that I could be in Nashville when you return so I could kiss those little cheeks. Yan and I will have to convince you to take a trip to Indiana.
    We love you guys! :-)

    What a sweet laugh! It’s amazing that she likes to look at books at her age! Good thing both her grandmas are teachers. She’ll have all the books she wants! Love you all! Mom Nobles

    …And the hits just keep gettin’ better and better! I can’t help thinking about the fund raising concert we went to in Smyrna, and how encouraging and inspiring it would be for those folks to see your videos. If you’re not in contact with them, you should figure out how to email them with a link to your site. Love you all! Merry Christmas and Happy Ew Year!!!
