Prior to our trip to Thailand (which I'll post soon), we had been busy decorating the apartment and baking. Not that the weather is what we are used to this time of year, but there has been a drop in the temps, and the cool 70-80 daytime and sometimes below 65 at night is a welcome treat.
Though a few decorations didn't make it, and our Christmas presents got held up and won't arrive until January, it's still quite festive at our home. Ceiba loves the holiday songs we jam to in the kitchen while baking. We are anxiously awaiting baking a turkey and nice dinner over the weekend, since we were in Bali over Thanksgiving. Last night we received gifts in the mail (thanks Aunt Shell/Uncle Erk and Gma/Gpa)!!!! The area under the (sad tiny on a table) tree is filling up!!
