Farewell Kiwis

I guess that's what you call someone from New Zealand. You can Google it later. We had to say farewell to soon to be Kiwis, Jason and Shannon. They left on Thursday to begin their trek to the other side of the world. What an adventure.

They came to visit for the weekend and we tried to pack in as much as possible. On Saturday we had a going away party. On Sunday we went to the Apple Orchard and watched football. On Monday, we did a whole bunch of stuff including watching more football, eating more food, going shopping and doing a few projects around our house.

Do not come between this girl and her donut
What? There's more donuts?

Elijah has such great fashion

Not that Isla doesn't look cute in this photo,
but is Dave a stud or what?

All aboard!

Cute little pumpkins
She was going "night night" on the pumpkin
Sweet girl. She never got a morning nap and only slept 2 hours in the afternoon.
(She usually naps between 4 and 5 hours a day.)
But despite being hungry and tired, she was a peach.
And even helped carry the popcorn
which weighed about as much as she does

We will miss you guys. Skype often and send me some sweet leather boots and handbags. Love you.


  1. Looks like a really fun day! I love the picture of Isla going "night night" on the pumpkin. She is such a little doll! :) Miss you guys. Hope you are feeling well, Christina.

  2. So much fun! I can't believe how long her hair looks even since I've seen her. Dave is a total stud. You are both rockstars. Love you dearly. :)
