A Little Tree

It's that time again! That time of year when frost gathers in the corners of the window panes, cheeks and noses are rosy from the chill in the air, toques are rummaged out of storage, students are anxious for the holidays and in Canada the ground is covered in snow. But, most importantly, its that time of year when all around the world people's excited is growing in anticipation of one of the most important days of the year, Christmas.

This week we had the joy of setting up our little Korean Christmas tree which will mark our second Christmas on the Asian continent.

Don't be fooled by the pictures, Kimchi, and his curiosity afforded not a fragment of help. Running off with bulbs in his mouth and eating the long pine needles, he was less than entertaining for me. For Trevor, on the other hand, this whole experience was quite a show.

So there you have it, we are anticipating yet another December filled with hot chocolate, friends and laughter. And, we are greatly looking forward to the days when Christmas once again means being with our families.

As an endnote, Kimchi was not the only source of entertainment while setting up the tree. Check out this video that Trevor made for you all to watch:
