New Harper Pics

We'll say that it has been "suggested" (not demanded) by several individuals that I post more pictures of Harper.  Next week I plan on giving a two month update on the joy that she is, but for now just a bunch of pictures taken yesterday will have to do as I am consumed this week by a tiny person on a tiny potty.  Hope this sates your appetites for Harper for a little while.

A Little Trip

Before coming home from Dar, we decided to take a little trip to Zanzibar.  We had some Christmas money that needed using and since we were already so close (only a $17, two hour boat ride away), we spent three days there; two at the beach and one in Stone Town.  Harper and I spent most of our time in the shade by the pool, but Brett, Baylor, and Brittney enjoyed the beach and snorkeling.  We enjoyed it thoroughly and I highly recommend a visit if you ever find yourself with free time in Africa.

Brett and Brittney's Birthday Fun

Last Tuesday was Brittney's (Brett's sister who is staying with us for a few months to help out with Baylor and Harper) birthday and she spent it in the car for eleven hours while we drove home from Dar.  Not exactly the best birthday ever.  And Brett's birthday was yesterday, so after worship on Sunday, we had an afternoon of grilling meat and eating dessert.  We had red velvet cake for Brett and chess pie for Brittney.  

Brittney requested live blue grass music, so Carson, Jonathan, and Craig got together a little band.

The kids painted, colored, and ran around.  A lot.  Baylor is so happy to be back in Geita with all her friends.  She started stalking random children she saw around in Dar just in hopes they might play with her for a few minutes in line at the grocery store or at the pool.  

Harper spent the day doing what she normally does--sleeping.  She's a pretty laid back little lady.

Sister Pics

I have finally recovered the cord that uploads pictures from my camera to the computer, so here a Baylor and Harper's first pictures together.  These were taken almost a month ago.  It's crazy how quickly little babies grow and change.  

Baylor loves her baby Harper.  Sometimes very enthusiastically.
