Here's a peak at my December in Mongolia. Expats start leaving the country en mass to their home countries for Christmas. This year I decided to stay and keep Randy company--though I have to admit I wasn't very good company as I tended to mope much more than I should have. However, there were good times to be had...
like holiday baking & cooking...(that's pumpkin for soup and pies cooking in the crock pot)
...the party with my Bible study sisters at Nancy's place (that's the hostess herself yukking it up :)...
holiday sewing...including backing 16 knitted baby blankets with flannel to go to a needy maternity hospital next week (no, I did NOT do the knitting--you know me better than that :), and a Christmas table top quilt. The table runner I bought from a local shop--it's from silk and not quilted at all. I think it is gorgeous!
...the Notre Dame Orphanage Christmas program--note the little sheep's behind--he was quite an unruly sheep :D
...our Christmas Eve buffet dinner with as many remaining expats as we could find plus two Mongolian friends, Shagai & Ulzimaa & children Tselmeg & Enkhmaa--my Kenyan friend, Jane and her Dutch husband, Jon, as well as the Mongolians had never seen or tasted turkey!
MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all!
