Last night we got a Christmas tree.. . which is not so bushy as the ones I remember, but at least it has character. And at least we have a tree. There are even pine cones on it! Can you imagine . . .
After a delicious dinner-group dinner of scrambled eggs and sausages by Paul, we got to relax a little. Yay! I started working on a Christmas advent calendar (it will be amazing, don't even worry!) and Joshua was able to read for a while.
Under the glow of rainbow Christmas lights I hung around our room, we watched a conference talk by Elder Uchtdorf about paying attention to the important parts of life. Don't spend so much time on things that don't really need to be worried about. Spend time thinking, and relaxing.Good advice, I thought.
Today we will go to a performance of Turkish instruments. Joshua is excited. And speaking of Turkish, and Joshua, and excitement and speaking, Joshua is taking a Turkish class. Today he had a speaking session and he said "it went really well."
At the moment I am part of a test shoot in the new BYU Broadcasting building. We have two studios crewed and all the cameras up and lots of engineers and audio guys running around. Great fun. Hopefully the first real shoot won't crash and burn . . .
