Cochabamba Christmas

I admit it, I'm obsessed. One of my favorite things to do is compare pictures - of a certain child as they grow, one of the homes from year to year, all the newborns we've had, different birthdays, holidays, whatever! Here are our best Baby Home group pictures from the years for a little walk down memory lane, particularly for the volunteers and those who know our kids and have participated in some of our Casa de Amor Christmases...




Christmas 2004
(the only Casa de Amor Christmas I have missed)




Christmas 2005





Christmas 2006






Christmas 2007







Christmas 2008








Christmas 2009



PS - Yeah, so I'm kind of stalling until I figure out WHERE to begin sharing our wonderful Christmas Eve/Christmas Day in the homes!!

Also, even though I am incredibly grateful that this has been the healthiest Christmas season for children/volunteers that I can recall (yeah!!), I wasn't expecting so many thoughts of Gabriela and the whole chicken pox trial which began on Christmas Eve/Day last year. Anyway...lots of posts to come, once things settle down a bit!

I was without blog access for a couple of days and was in the airport when I first saw this post...wanted to cry it was so good to see my babies!

But seriously twins A and P don't look very happy. Tell them I love them even if I'm far away!

And E and E...well you know what to tell them...they'll always be my babies even if they are los tremendos...

Love you all!

This is TOO CUTE. I absolutely love that you dressed them all alike! Glad you made it back in time for Christmas. I'm headed that way in a week... See you sometime in January, I'm sure. Have a happy new year! :)
