We went to the Alpujarra with our friends Becca and Michaela in January.
Aunt Karolyn & Uncle Ryan visited us.
We experienced Semana Santa in Granada.
The Fuller Grandparents Visited us.
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.
While 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.
Malaki and Cora enjoying Klaire & Josh’s wedding reception (Cora was the flower girl).
After our crazy trip to the U.S. we had a work conference at this resort in Spain.
In June, Malaki graduated from Infantil. (Preschool/Kindergarten)
We took a family vacation.
We 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).
We had to say goodbye to our dear friend and nanny, Michaela.
Brian and Cora had an ice cream date.
We kept enjoying our city. Malaki is pointing to a 16th century cathedral here in Granada.
We bought a car!
In 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.
We’ve gotten several thoughtful packages this year. This one was for Jairus’ 3rd birthday from Brian’s parents.
Malaki chose to go back to Basketball this fall.
Those world-traveling Fuller Grandparents visited us again.
We 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.
We visited the Generalife at the Alhambra.
We realized we didn’t have a nativity; so we made one.
The finished product.
A family outing to Plaza Bib-Rambla
It was a homemade Christmas. But it was fun that way.
