Christmas in India

We celebrated Christmas four times this year. The first was with Brandon and Karissa in Ooty (with gifts sent from Ryan's parents) - complete with chocolate fondue and Ryan dressed up as a Christmas tree. The second was with my parents in Mysore - they brought a suitcase full of stuff for us. The third was when the package from Ryan's sister and family arrived. And the fourth was last week when three packages arrived friends in Idaho. It has been fantastic!

Here are a couple of photos of our Christmas with my parents. I don't know if you can tell from the pictures, but the gifts were pajamas, marshmallows, gatorade, a raincoat for Addie, sunscreen, skittles, carpet cleaner, citrus air freshener, birthday candles, corn meat, baking powder, and lots of other great stuff! Thank you to all our friends and family - you sent us so many things that we were needing, but the most fun was receiving things that you just thought we would enjoy (and we did)!

packages are the BEST--especially at Christmas! I went on my motorcycle to the post office the other day and found 4! Then i waited until Christmas Eve to open them. So fun!
