Happy Christmas from Amisadai

Happy Christmas everybody! I hope you had a lovely time... we did!
On Christmas day morning we opened our stockings, and got lots of presents inside! I got sweets, a puzzle, little notebooks, hair elastics, and tissues. Then we had a lovely breakfast of delicious sweet bread. And I had made smoothies, which I found on the National Geographic website for kids. It is made with frozen banana, two oranges, ½ cup of vanilla yogurt, food colouring (you don’t have to), and we added mango juice, and baobab juice as well. 
Christmas Breakfast
Then we opened our Christmas presents. I got books, clothes, sweets, some lovely jewellery and some other things as well. We went to Andy and Angela’s with the Wingfields for a Christmas lunch. We had roast duck and LOTS of other things! Then we stayed for tea. So you see, we had loads of fun!

Our Christmas Tree from the garden
Before Christmas we went to a village called Ikuka to say good bye to the stoves group there. We stayed there for lunch which was rice, beans and meat. And we drank soda.  Then they said they had some presents for us. So they went out and came back in with the presents. First they each gave us some eggs. It was so funny because they all came in a long line, each holding an egg! Then they gave a bucket of corn. Then they came in with a chicken (alive) and last of all ………. a goat!!!! And it was alive! I called him Johnson and now back in Iringa, in the mornings I take him to pasture. I love having a goat! But he will have to find him a new home very soon.
Johnson the Goat
We have now found new homes for most of the baby rabbits, and also for the mum. Soon the others will go too.
Saying goodbye to the rabbits
We now have six puppies!  They were born just before Christmas! Two are black and white, three are brown, and one is brown and white. The mother Lily, has made a den underneath a log and pile of wood.

A little puppy!

  7. Hi We are the Cavanaugh Family and we live in Washington State. We stumbled upon your blog and decided we would write. It is neat to see all you are experiencing in Africa. Reilly age 9 wants to know why you had to get rid of your animals? Our kids ages at Liam age 10 1/2, Lizzie age 10 1/2, Reilly age 9, Natalie age 7, Christopher at 6, and Jonah 22 months. We hope to continue to read your blog and keep in touch. Blessings from all of us to you!

  8. Thanks for your message! We had to get rid of our animals because we couldn't take them in the car with us when we moved to Mwanza. Have you found Mwanza and Iringa on the map? They are 1000km apart. My mom's email is rachelmonger@gmail.com. We would love to hear from you! Have you ever been to Tanzania? I went to Washington state when I was little! My grandparents live in British Columbia. Love from Amisadai
