Here’s what we’ve been doing the last few days:

Monday: We went to Walmart to buy our Christmas tree. It cost us 388 pesos, or about $35 US. It’s the biggest Christmas tree we have ever had, and it smells and looks really good. Nathan loves it. He loves to watch the lights and had a big smile when he woke up from his nap and it was up. Monday night we went to a fellowship with Northwest Mexico City missionaries.

Tuesday: I was sick, so I spent pretty much the whole day in bed. I was trying to get better so I could enjoy the holiday weekend. It worked pretty well. I also had a chance to finish reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. It was a restful day, and I feel a little better now.

Wednesday: Class from 8 AM to noon. Chapel followed. Then, at 4 pm, we had a meeting with all the seminary students who are working with young people and are interested in participating in a camp in March. We will be planning it together in the next few months.

Tomorrow, we will be sleeping in, watching football, and eating turkey, all while being very thankful for all that God has given us. Have a great Thanksgiving Day.
