Though it is beautiful to be walking the beaches of Brazil where the water is the perfect aqua color and warm like the bahamas, I do miss some details that remind me that it is Christmas time.
Stockings by the fire
Homemade cookies + glass of ice cold milk
I won't let those missing details let me down. There will be plenty years to have these things when we are not bouncing around the globe where it is odd to drink a glass of fresh milk with your cookie. (My only complaint about South America). I was very happy to see the beautiful nativity scene on the temple grounds this evening. It put a smile on my face.
P.S. My sisters have birthdays right next to each other. Yesterday(15th) was Ellie's and today(16th) is Hanna's. Wish I could have been home to sing happy birthday to you and watch you blow out your candles. I love you both.
Happy Birthday Ellie and Hanna!!
