Quite obviously I don't keep everyone updated very well ~ SORRY! I am going to try to get a few new posts up this week to tell you all of some of the things that have been going on around here lately.
Here are some pictures from our Christmas get together. We had a wonderful day (even though we were away from family in the States). We were able to meet with our "new family" here in Taiwan. Tad and I celebrated our Christmas together in the morning and in the afternoon we went over to the Delaney's house for the remainder of the day. I was able to cook my very first turkey for dinner ... Yum, yum!! :o) (thankfully it turned out very well!) We had a great day and are so thankful for the new friendships the Lord has brought us into.
We thought of family throughout the holidays ... here are our family photos with all the Christmas cards that were sent our way.
Our "Christmas Lizard" - taking care of all the bugs in the house.
The Delaney girls (Susannah and Julia) and I ... our craft gift
Here is my very first beautiful, delicious looking turkey :o)
Our greatest surprise ... gifts from home!! When we arrived at the house, the Delaney's kept saying we should open our stockings. At the first glance under the tree I exploded with excitement as I saw a very familiar sight ... mom's handmade stockings. Thankfully I didn't start crying (although it was an emotional moment). What a wonderful surprise!
