It's Beginning to Look...

... a little like Christmas, as evidenced by

Our Christmas Tree

Okay, so it is not really that bad. Some of you have heard the struggles we faced about trying to make our 80 degree days feel like Christmas. But between borrowing a tree from co-workers who will be out of the country for December, 

buying weird garland and Diwali lights in the local market, and importing some of our favorite ornaments in our suitcase, we had a decent looking Christmas tree.

Rebekah got into helping us with the ornaments (she liked to put all of the ornaments in very close proximity), 

And even decorated her own tree... with great concentration, as you can see.


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE the tree. tell bekah she did a great job! you sure you don't want to come to africa for christmas?? i've gotten really good at making a pecan pie...

  2. okay, her little tree is adorable.

    and you totally had me with the first picture! i was like, oh no. that's just awful! and then i saw the real deal....i think you did quite fine! we're not even putting up a tree this year, due to being on the road dec. 17-jan9. maddy'll get two christmases and two different trees, so no complaints. :)
