Life and Such

Taking a moment to catch our breath as we finished our first trimester of school. It's a Saudi Christmas for us this year, and Sojo has been the one to add all the festive touches to our house with her drawings and homemade wreaths. 

Here she is tending to her basil plants and green bean seed that just started growing. We've found a little window space for them inside since the sand outside makes for gritty basil eating! I really just took this photo to get a shot of her fabulous fox sweater that she got last winter. This winter, it's even cooler because of the "What Does the Fox Say?" song that is everywhere. Plus, she looks so pretty and grownup here.


The tree is ready to go, as well as Sojo's photos from her preschool years that we love to hang at this time of year. We have only a few presents under the tree, but Sojo still ran in the other day and exclaimed, "There are so many presents under here!!!" Definitely an overseas girl to have no clue as to how many presents usually sit under trees! 


4 more wake ups until Christmas!

Missing you terrible, but loving thata Sojo is creating such wonderful memories. Selfishly, I forgot how important it is to create our own memories. I love the tree and all the trimmings and the joy she spreads wherever she goes.
