Christmas 2016

We spend this year's Christmas in Tokyo, it was just the two of us together! 
We had a paper-tree hung on our wall with care and spent the day at church and had a great ham dinner with Bishop Mendoza's family and the missionaries. It was a great day celebrating our Savior and enjoying good company and presents.

This year it has been very neat to be pregnant during the Christmas season. It has made me reflect on Mary expecting Jesus and that journey to Bethlehem and giving birth in a stable. It makes me love Mary more and also our Savior who carries, labors, and delivers each of us. 

We are excited for our own little babe coming in May. 
The last Christmas of  "SILENT" nights is over!
