Favs from this time last year






Russ joined us in Antigua this time last year. An extremely generous Christmas elf from our church gave us the gift of sending him to Guate for the holidays. Eliot was just getting over Rota virus (picture it with me: Viral diarrhea in a third world country where you were lucky to get warm water a few times a week. The middle-of-the-night explosions were especially tricky in that the electricity gets turned off during the night hours. No hot water, no lights and a virus. Fun. It was like some sort of hazing into the great sorority of motherhood.)Anyway, this was in the days before I discovered blogging so these pictures were only shared with a few that we could get them to. Russ packed for his trip knowing that he'd be bringing his family home with him! He even had our house-sitter get the car seat installed! Oh how naive we were!




Russ and I joke that he's trying to say, "I have Wota Viwus" in this picture.

Your son is so beautiful. Wow what a year can do! We were just about to head to Guat. on our 2nd visit trip and dreaming of a Christmas where we could have our whole family together. The dream is coming true. Merry Christmas!
