To all of our family and friends, Merry Christmas! We love and miss you very much. The holiday spirit was full fling in our house this year despite the warm, sunny 95 degree weather and the cultural diversity that does not fully embrace Christmas. We watched a gazillion holiday movies, listened to Christmas music all month, got a (fake) tree, and baked oodles and oodles of cookies.
And what more, thanks to Skype, we got to talk to our friends and family. Skype is so amazing. It helps us to feel a little closer to everyone and makes the homesickness a little less intense.Thank you to everyone who sent lovely holiday wishes our way and a Happy New Year to everyone. We love you!
