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!!!
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 […]
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 […]
No, actually, its the real Texas Roadhouse out at the Avenues. They had real sweet tea, USDA beef, and more Americans working in a single place I’ve seen in Kuwait outside of the military installations! The steak was excellent, a bit on the waaaaaay too pricey side, but absolutely delicious. Even tho it was a soft opening, […]
Happy Halloween! Kinda anti-climatic in Kuwait but we do it up the best we can. Mimi and Pop always send over a goodie bag and Anita always puts together something for the class. So BOO!
Despite a rather nasty bout with the Kuwaiti Crud over the last week we’ve managed to get Halloween down from storage and up and running around the house. The house is still in a state of flux as a lot of the furniture is still not here but not a bad job all around if […]
After more than a month over here in the hot all by myself Sydney & Anita have returned. Apparently their flights went very well, no major customer service issues, delays, etc. They did make a stop in Saudi Arabia (yuck) before hitting the ground over here and the flight was listed as “direct” so that’s one thing I’m going to […]
