$2 Christmas

This year we had just decided not to really do too much for Christmas as all of our Christmas stuff is in our crate which still has not arrived and most likely will not arrive for another 3-4 months. But to our surprise, one of the other missionaries here had an extra tree that they  brought over for us to borrow, so we have been having fun decorating. We bought some Christmas ball ornaments for $2 and we’ve made the rest of our decorations. Below is some pictures of our fun getting ready for Christmas. It’s a little hard to get into the season when it is 90 degrees outside, but we are trying.

We would like to start some of our own Christmas traditions, so if you know of some fun easy things to make or do then we would love to hear from you. (

Above and below: Taylor making some ornaments for our tree.



We also made some sugar cookies…I think Taylor ate more of the dough than we actually baked.


  1. Merry Christmas Turners! I was praying for you all this morning during my quiet time, and I looked at your missionary picture on our fridge, and just had a sweet peace about you guys being there. Just thought I would tell you. Love you all!

  2. Awesome picture of Taylor giving you the evil eye over the ornaments.
    I read the first No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency one day while I was bored in Kenya and now I want to visit Botswana. I'll let you know when I'm on the way!
    Merry Christmas,
