Rhonda’s mom came to visit us in Baku just after Christmas. The kids have been looking forward to her visit for some time. It was like having a second Christmas when she arrived. She sacrificed her luggage allowance in order to bring more gifts and supplies. This is her second visit to Baku and she really likes the city. The lights are up for New Years and everything is decorated very nicely. Her favourite place is the new Airport Bazaar.You could go shopping in there for a month but we manage to pull her out after a few hours at a time. She has no trouble dealing with the sellers and negotiating her price.
The kids enjoy having her in the house and there have been several rounds of ‘hide and go seek.’ Nanny seems to find the best spots. The other night we had to start dinner without her because the kids couldn’t find her and she didn’t want to give up her good spot. There is no school for three weeks so its great to have company and family here. While she is visiting, Grandpa John is putting in a new bathroom at the farm. We all think that’s a great idea and look forward to see the new room in the summer.
Thanks for coming Nanny. You were a great Christmas present this year!
