The end of January ALREADY?!?!?! WoW!

Hello!  MY, what a whirlwind the past two months have been!  Last semester ended well and off we went to visit our children and grandchildren in the U.S. during the month break we had from school.  We also had some business to take care of; trying once again to get the visa needed which is needed before we could apply for the one-year visa.

We flew into Birmingham and spent almost a week with Bethany and Joseph and their 3 kids.  We celebrated Christmas on the 23rd, as we flew out early the next morning for Arizona.

We spent two weeks in the Phoenix area mostly spending time with family.  Adam and Amy were close to the end of Amy's pregnancy and Ariana Michelle Van Liew made her debut two days AFTER we flew back to Alabama!  We were glad to hear that Amy and Ariana were doing well and we have really enjoyed frequent pictures on facebook of the Ariana and her big brothers and sister loving on her.
