So today was Fiona’s first birthday party. We decided to keep things low-key. We invited our best Germany friends. Jennifer, Brian, and Dominick S., Kevin, Kimberly, Rachel, and Allison W., and Aaron, Tamesa and Abbie H. It was a good time had by all. The best part? We did it at the playroom on base, so no having to clean my house and its even meant for kids to tear up! Score!

I’m so grateful to have the great friends we have here now. I know I say that a lot, but that’s only because its true! So thank you friends for being there to celebrate the birth of our baby girl. We love you all! And happy almost birthday precious angel. We love you so much.
