Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown...

Merry Christmas, family and friends! I wish I could be there, or you could be here, or some variation thereof, but alas, we must send our good wishes from afar.

How do you like my Christmas tree? It reminds me of an animated movie usually watched this time of year...

On Christmas Eve, we teachers had a little holiday dinner, complete with gift exchange (I got a scarf). Here are Daniel Yoo -- our newest teacher and a fellow Californian -- and Dan Kim, our head teacher:

Keith and his girlfriend:

Sophia and Nathan (engaged to be married; Nathan's from Wisconsin, as I've mentioned. Sophia is native Korean and teaches our low-level students). Eric's peeking into the picture:

Here's the whole gang:

On Christmas Day my church had a service, at which I played and sang. Afterwards we had lunch and a white elephant gift exchange. I ended up with a bread maker...which I stole from someone thinking it was a rice cooker. After that, we watched the Nativity Story, the new Christmas movie. It was a little boring, but overall pretty good. More of a rental than a see-in-the-theater. After that, dinner with some other friends. In short, I kept busy. I still would have rathered to have been home with y'all, but I made do.

I love you all! May God bless you, and may Christ give you His peace.
