Yup, you read that right folks – we put up Christmas lights outside this year! One of the neighbors down the street has some lights wrapped around their palm trees and Anita thought it looked really pretty. Since we had a ton of lights left over from Sydney’s birthday I thought I’d see what I […]
Things have been really hectic this month. It seems like there’s been something almost every day. Fun stuff like carols at the British Embassy, book club, Christmas parties with friends but still kinda back to back to back. Anyways, that’s why we’ve not finished with Sydney’s tree until today. But as my friend Susan once […]
We’ve been cooking and baking! We’ve got a big-o-pile of Chex Mix and have started the Christmas Cookie Caravan! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
Some one just popped up on our visitor globe from Niceville, FL. Just thought I’d say hi! Sydney was born right around the corner in Pensacola, FL and one of my old Academy roommates is from Niceville.
There’s a new company in Kuwait selling helium tanks that you can use to fill up balloons for parties at home. I’m not going to use their name directly but it’s pretty easy to figure out using a popular abbreviation for the country and the item their product is used for. The reason I’m not […]

The girls in her Brownie troop held a very nice ceremony to say goodbye and their new Guiding leader and one of the oldest guides in Kuwait welcomed Sydney and two of her friends into Guides. It was really pretty neat […]
Well it’s that time again folks. All of the fall leaves and cornucopias have been packed away and Christmas is here! At least at Villa Al Godwin. As anyone who knows us will attest to when we moved over here 35 feet of our forty foot container was Christmas. It has taken quite a while […]
Mimi and Pop really spoil us around Christmas time. Every year they always send over a box or two of “open early” presents. Decorative things, ornaments, or just fun Christmasy things that are much fun to play with during the Christmas season than after. This year was no exception and we even tried to make […]
Its always a bit weird when it rains around here so when the wind kicks up and the lightning flashes light up the whole sky it’s especially cool. Just thought I’d try to catch a few pictures of it. Enjoy…
Today’s the big turkey day! We had the parade on the TV, Bill and the Coopers (Ken, Tina, and Mathew) came over for dinner, and the whole house smelled AWESOME all day long! I managed to snag a 22 pounder over the summer and brined him up the day before. He was in the oven […]
