Here’s a quick update on how our week has been. We had Cliff’s family over for lunch on Christmas day, and my family over for dinner in the same evening. It was a day full of food and fun with the family. Having very few family members on the same continent makes me appreciate it more when I see them. For the rest of the week, we are having a number of get togethers with friends. It’s a non-stop week-long party!
Cliff bought me a set of Bodum coffee cups I wanted, and I got him an iPad2. Joshua got the Pewi bike which he really enjoys, and some new books he couldn’t stop flipping through.
Tonight I felt a little sad when we put away the Christmas stockings and ornaments. I’m sure Joshua is not impressed with us putting away his favorite–the lights. I explained to him that we’ll bring out those lights again next year, but he held onto the strand of lights for dear life.
