We bought this little Christmas tree at a store across the street from our apartment. It's small, but it's the perfect size for our place. I didn't want to spend any money on ornaments, so we made all of them with stuff we already had around the house. Everything on the tree is either yarn or paper. And we now have a few more presents under the tree since I took this picture. Ethan was so worried that none of the presents from relatives would make it in time, but luckily they did, and Ethan's much happier now.
We went to a party hosted by Nate's boss yesterday, and we had a lot of fun. His boss, Mary, is Japanese, but was raised in Brazil, so she speaks Portuguese, English, and Japanese. She made tons of yummy Brazilian food, and after eating our fill, some of her friends got out the drums and guitars and started singing Bassanova music. Japanese singing Brazilian music - it was quite an international day! We also met a really great couple who live not far from where we live. He's Australian and she's Japanese, and they have a really cute son. It was nice to meet another young couple with a kid, and we plan to get together with them again some time.
It's hard to believe that it's Christmas tomorrow. We're planning to go watch Tron with some friends tomorrow, but I still need to figure out what I'm going to make for our traditional Christmas breakfast. Anyone know where I can find some bacon?
