>It’s a good thing we were given a pull-out couch for our new living room, because we sure did need it over Christmas! All three of us got the flu. We spent Christmas day huddled Daddy, Mama, and Baby wallowing on the sleeper-sofa, taking turns sleeping and feeling icky. Although physically it wasn’t very fun, I think it was good mentally for us to ease back into Christmas in the States. Staying home on Christmas with no presents to open and no mass media jingles jingling in our ears and eyes allowed us to focus on what Christmas is truly about and praise God for that.
