A few of my favorite gifts

Due to the busyness of travel the past week or so, Christmas already feels like it was eons ago. It felt a little strange to return to my apartment last night and see Christmas decorations still up. Those will definitely be coming down soon! However, before I completely packed away Christmas, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite gifts from this year. I believe most of them will speak for themselves.
Pigs are thought to be very lovely and cute here in China. Who wouldn't agree after seeing these?
I think this next one is supposed to be a necklace hanger.And perhaps my favorite gift ever. My cleaning lady brought this to me (as well as toilet bowl cleaner) and explained she got it because it had instructions in English as well. Make sure you read all of the package, as well as the notice from the side of the package.
In all seriousness, the best gift was having my good friends here for Christmas. It was great to be able to show them my life in China. Here they are modeling one of their gifts from the team. These face masks are not for germ protection, but rather are to keep you warm in the bitter wind up here in the northeast of China.
