Happy New Year 2014
Kinley loved it, although she was a little scared of the sparklers when she was holding them. Turner was fast asleep, which was a blessing. He LOVES fire and would have burned himself for sure!

Christmas in Paraguay
This was our first Christmas away from the US. For me, thats a hard enough situation to deal with on its own. Throw in there that it was over 100 degrees in December, and I can say that it was very strange. We actually had a great time just being with our little family, but it was so strange to walk around the stores hearing Christmas music while we were sweating from the heat!
We still tried to do all of the Christmas-time activities.
Maria gave the kids another bunny! This time they named it Blankie.
And the embassy had a Christmas party, complete with Santa, and what EVERY normal Christmas party has... a water slide!
This was our first year to introduce the Elf on the Shelf. We hoped it would help Kinley behave a little better... it didnt! But it was still fun and she LOVED it. She immediately named him "Cookie".
