Christmas only 4 days away!

Hello there...thought we would check in. It has been quite a busy month for us as we have had work Christmas parties, Korean church activities with the kids (our Christmas concert this Sunday!), shopping for family, baking cookies for co-workers and plus working full-time for both of us. Thankfully though, Glen has survived another semester and he did pretty well. He will be taking a Winter course for about a week and then we are headed into our last semester :). An update on baby Thompson: we had our last ultrasound December 13th and he or she is developing well...such a blessing as we know in fact it is God who is creating this little one-all in His hands. We should be at the end of our 1st trimester by Thursday next week (27th). We'll keep you posted! On Sunday, we'll be heading out to Arizona for 7 days. Included are a few recent pics: Shilo's co-worker (to the left), Michael, from New York gave us our first official baby gift (!) and Shilo and Kazumi (below) at Starbucks, who met during this last semester studying a book on being a godly wife. Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!!

Early Afternoon Tea

Today, I (Shilo) was able to enjoy an afternoon with my old roomates (top pic from left-Karen, myself, Emily, Suelynn & Crystal) at cute new tea place in Santa Clarita called The Tea Gardens. We celebrated Emily's birthday and what a great time catching up on what God was doing in our lives, eating yummified treats and of course laughing away. Each of these women have had a tremendous impact on me and I'm so grateful that I was able tear away from all my class homework to spend time with them. Thanks for a memorable afternoon girlies!

And of course, a post would not be a post without the latest picture of Glen and Daisy-the two cutest in the world :).
