Gammie and PaPaw's Visit

My parents were able to come out in November for ten wonderful days. This was their second trip to the Middle East to visit us but their first time staying in Abu Dhabi!

I have a surprisingly sparse collection of pictures from their visit. I think that's because most of the time it seemed like what we were doing was normal every day things. It was so special to just share our lives with them! And also because I took so many photos on my parents camera for them! So I should get those from them and add them here later.

We showed them the girls' school, went out to eat, got haircuts, went to the beach, read alot of books, toured the fort, and went to Build-a-Bear.

We also did alot of Christmas related things! We planned on doing a Christmas/Thanksgiving combo before they left so we squeezed in some last minute Christmas shopping, wrapped presents, decorated the tree and house, made Christmas cookies, and had Christmas morning with a Thanksgiving meal that afternoon


We had such a good time with them and are so grateful that they were able to travel all that way to hang out with us for the week! I am looking forward to seeing my mom again when she comes to help for Luke's arrival!

I think it is wonderful they are able to come visit you so far away! And your mom is coming for Luke's arrival too? AMAZING! How do you plan that timing wise?
