2013 in Review. A year of pictures.

Winter 2013:
IMG_1578We went to the Alpujarra with our friends Becca and Michaela in January.

Aunt Karolyn & Uncle Ryan visited us.

The Phillips Grandparents visited us, and we had Cora’s dedication service at church.


We experienced Semana Santa in Granada.

We got some exciting news in April. Although we lost the baby in May, we have a lot of happy memories of sharing our news, and preparing our hearts.

We got to return to the states for a couple of weeks in April/May for my sister’s wedding.

IMG_0028While we were staying in this house (our house in the states) a truck ran off the road and crashed into it. It really was miraculous that none of us were harmed.

IMG_0032We are enormously thankful that Cora was not in her room at the time.

IMG_0218After our crazy trip to the U.S. we had a work conference at this resort in Spain.

IMG_0404In June, Malaki graduated from Infantil. (Preschool/Kindergarten)

Early Summer:

IMG_0523We took a family vacation.

IMG_0477We had pity on a poor orphan kitten with half his whiskers and a bad case of “I hate humans.” His name is Roy Rogers; today he is healthy and loves our kids… though he still doesn’t care much for Brian & I.

We continued exploring our city (and finding cool places like this one).

IMG_0874Malaki continued to be an artist.

IMG_0322We had to say goodbye to our dear friend and nanny, Michaela.

(the hot part of the) Summer:
IMG_1142  Most of the summer was spent just trying to get our bearings after the crazy Spring.

IMG_0782Brian and Cora had an ice cream date.

IMG_1003We kept enjoying our city. Malaki is pointing to a 16th century cathedral here in Granada.

IMG_1217We bought a car!


IMG_1304In September school started again. Cora was very excited, and has done well. Malaki continues to wow us with his Spanish skills, and he is also doing well.

IMG_1317We’ve gotten several thoughtful packages this year.  This one was for Jairus’ 3rd birthday from Brian’s parents.

IMG_1443Malaki chose to go back to Basketball this fall.

IMG_1575Those world-traveling Fuller Grandparents visited us again.

IMG_1916We were so blessed to host Thanksgiving with our good friends. Though we missed being with family, we really enjoyed sharing this day with our Spanish family.

2013-14 Winter:
We visited the Generalife at the Alhambra.

IMG_1939We realized we didn’t have a nativity; so we made one.

IMG_1953The finished product.

IMG_2025It was a homemade Christmas. But it was fun that way.

IMG_2087It was a hard, good year.
