Celebrate Hard

When Jon’s parents finalized their trip dates, we were not only glad to they were coming but also packed as much celebrating as we could into our time. By nature, when I have margin, I am a person who loves to celebrate the little things. You already saw a few pictures of them at Field Days, but we also celebrated by sharing our Awi neighborhood and then, an early Thanksgiving, Trick-or-Treating, J and A’s birthday, as well as Jon’s birthday. We were well-partied.

Airport pick-ups are so much more fun than drop-offs!

Our neighbors love to see our parents out and about. We become a little more human, like we came from somewhere, besides an airplane.

Tiger and Miss T also benefitted as Grandma couldn’t resist bringing gifts for the littles as well.

While we were staying at a guest house in Addis Ababa, the kids trick-or-treated in the guest house and loved all the attention and funny adults.
