More Birthday Celebrations!

Today Eliana and I had the chance to celebrate the birthday of our language helper. Without her we would not know Tajik so we are so thankful for her and I was excited to have the chance to see her and celebrate her, especially since we hadn't seen her since we returned. She also just loves Eliana so it was fun for that reason as well.

Happy Birthday Z!

Saturday Morning Fun

Saturday morning Eliana and I went to the Botanical Gardens while Drew was doing some studying. We had fun playing on the exercise equipment, looking at the flowers and mostly, seeing the "wedding girls." Eliana just loves seeing the brides and their dresses and this is prime wedding season so it was a fun morning.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Tuesday was my birthday! Yay! I love birthdays and this year was another fun day of celebration. We had a delicious homemade breakfast from Drew, I was able to talk to lots of friends and family, we had a babysitter and a quiet evening at home watching the Cowboys' game and eating Indian food, Drew surprised me with a cake and my parent's birthday package came in the mail! I am thankful for another year of life and thankful to be so blessed and loved by those around me. Happy 34th to me!

Eliana's presents to me- a notebook, flashlight, funny face ball and two acorns. :-)

My main gift was a new smartphone, which was delivered by some guests Monday morning so Tuesday when I was at the office I got some shots of me, Eiana and our friends there.

Eliana also got me flowers. What a great family I have!

Our Apartment from Eliana's Perspective

Friday morning Eliana wanted to take pictures with the camera so I let her have it for a few minutes. It was a lot of fun seeing what things she took pictures of and just seeing our apartment from her perspective.

No, she can't set up a self-timer yet...Drew took this one! :-) 

It took me awhile to figure out what could be this dirty in my's the old oven that is still sitting on our porch waiting for a new home. Whew! 

 The rest of the pictures are of her sitting inside her wardrobe playing with her animals. She was very surprised to see that the pictures were light even though it was dark inside. Pesky flash!
