It's not your run of the mill Christmas card. It's better. It has swords.
We are in China after all!
I tried to decorate for the holiday by purchasing some stockings, tree lights and ornaments for our little bonsai plants. I even made a sign that says. "Merry Christmas". I'm pretty proud of my meager attempt at bringing Christmas to our home in China. We bought a few gifts for each other and we will probably open them Christmas night. If I was a child I would want to kill my parents for making me wait all day but I guess as you get older it becomes less about the presents and more about remembering the Savior. We have been trying to do just that by enjoying a month of Family Home Evening lessons centered on Christ and doing our best to be more service oriented.
We hope your Christmas plans are coming together and you are not too overwhelmed with planning and preparing that you forget the true meaning.
MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM CHINA!
