Time to Play Ball


We are so lucky to have been neighbors with the Collins Family these past few month while living here in KSA. We knew the Collins when we lived in Texas, in fact we lived less than 2 minutes away from them. Nicole and I were really good friends, as well as Jon and Bruce, and Josh and Logan were/are two peas in a pod, so having them so close to us while living here has been a great blessing.

Tonight Bruce and Jon gathered up all of the kids for a game of baseball. They had a lot of fun!

Cookies with Mommy



Today Kiki and I made cookies! I love spending time with this girl. She is such a cutie!





Frosting Time!



After all this hard work, it is only fair to try a few.
Even Eden got to eat one! 



Gangnam Julien Style!

Julien can have such a cute sense of humor. Today he pulled out this little baby toy and said "watch this mom!" It was so funny!

Kiki the little artist


Kia Ora loves to draw, and she is quite good at it!


These last ones surprised me at how good and how detailed they had.

Daddy bathed me!


It is no surprise that our family is quite good at finding new creative ways to use a bidet, and today was no different!  I came up to see how Jon was doing bathing Eden, and walked in to Eden happily splashing around in the bidet! As long as it gets the job done I guess!

Camping


Logan and his good friend Josh worked on the outdoorsman requirement for cub scouts this months. They were so excited to be able to pitch a tent and sleep in the great outdoors of our compound!

Logan, packing up for camping!



One of the requirement was building a fire, 
and clearly they were delighted to play I mean build a fire.



Marshmallows!



Good morning sleepy head!


Kiki could not wait to go wake the boys up!

Homemade Yogurts!


I made my first yogurt this week! It was my mom/ grandma recipe! 
Making them was a lot easier than I thought. Kiki sure enjoyed eating them!

Swimming Merit Badge



Julien finished up his swimming merit badge with Jon today. 
Julien did a pretty good job inflating his clothes and using them as a floatation device. 



Jon was eager to jump in and try to do it too!



Little Eden!



Logan and Eden!


Kiki loves the water!




 After our little swim we ordered food from the compound restaurant and had a nice dinner pool side!

Muneer



Muneer is one of our drivers. He has been driving us to "lunch" since we moved here. He is very cool. He likes Eden and Kiki a lot. It make me giggle to see him pick up Eden and walk him around while we finish getting ready.
I am so glad the company provides us with a driving service, and that the drivers are so cautious keeping us safe while on the road. I really enjoy talking to them and getting to know them. Our Limousina drivers are the BEST!
