'Tis the Season!

"It came without ribbons! It came without tags!

I miss the snow, the beautiful lights, Christmas music around town, family gatherings, the smell of a real tree in the living room, the whole ambiance of the Christmas season. However, being in Taiwan we are able to simply focus on the spirit of Christmas, and for that I am grateful.

What a fun thing to do. Love the costumes, did you whip those up?
