Mahalia's Christmas Gift

A little walking narrative of Mahalia opening her Christmas Gift:

Oh, wow!  A present for me!

I wonder what it could be? 

oooh...  colorful!

Aaagh!  Someone gave me an upside-down, backward doll!

Oh, I see!  Hee-hee, my fault! :)

Oh, she's sooo preeetty!

I will love her,  and hug her, forever and ever!

Merry Christmas from us to you!

And lest you think that we've lost one of our children, here's why Mahalia didn't make it to the final cut.

She was sooo afraid of the lights!  She screamed when I put her down in the lights, and laughed nervously at her brother when she was standing next to me watching him.  Crazy girl.

Anyway, we're all good now.  The lights are on the tree and she thinks they're quite pretty there... and safe...she hopes.

Here Comes the Rain! - PostCard from Brazil

     "Here comes the Rain!"  It seems like that is a common phrase here these days.  

     When we first arrived here in Brazil, it was the beginning of the dry season (our region really only has two seasons: hot wet, and hot dry) and so it never rained.  However, now we are coming into the rainy season and storm clouds can blow up out of nowhere and surprise us with a good downpour.  

     Though you can't do much outside during the rain, it's nice that it cuts the dust and often brings cooler temperatures immediately afterward - a very welcome relief!
