Celebrating advent and decorating our tree. People have asked us if it feels like Christmas. It definitely does, in a beautiful and simple kind of way. We made our advent wreath out of lemon tree leaves, and brought our little advent tree with us from Canada. The MCC office in Mexico City gave us a piney type tree which we made some decorations for. Most of all the kids are excited -- so, yes (aside from dearly missing family and friends), Christmas is here!
