Jeff and Maren have been such a blessing in our lives! It has made our transition in moving to Kunming, China a lot easier. We had a friendship before we even met physically. While we were in the US, we would Skype with Jeff and Maren a lot and that is where our friendship started. When we finally met in person, it's like we have known them for a long time. We eat lunch and dinner with them almost everyday. They have gotten us addicted to eating at McDonalds for breakfast.... ya SHOCKER! I actually enjoy eating at McDonalds at 8 in the morning! When I really think about eating at McDonalds I just about gag, but it's really good!!
We have absolutely love our nanny! She is the sweetest little lady, I wish I could communicate with her... but I'm slowly learning Chinese so hopefully soon I will be able to talk her. The food she makes is the best! I look forward to her meals. Even when we have tofu for lunch (at home, I wouldn't even think about trying it) but because I absolutely love her cooking, I have tried every dish she has made... besides a mushroom dish, it looked really gross and I didn't think I could stomach that yet.
This was one of my favorite meals that she has cooked. Pork, potatoes and carrots on two plates, egg and tomatoes on another plate and cabbage on the third plate.
This is how they pick their fish at the store. There is everything from fresh fish to live oysters. If I liked fish, I'd be in heaven, but I'm not the biggest fish fan.
Every night, ladies will get together in the court and dance to loud music. It looks like a form of Zumba... except these woman are in jeans and high heals dancing!
Mason has been quite the trooper since we have arrived! His little personality has grown so much these past few weeks and Kyle and I really enjoy seeing him laugh and play. When Kyle get's home from work, Mason gets the BIGGEST smile on his sweet little face. He almost gets embarrassed because he's so excited!
Ever since Mason was a week old, he has loved taking baths! Taking a bath has always settled him down and he loves soaking in the water.
Mason has this new thing where he LOVES giving kisses! My face is usually wet when he is done! It is the sweetest thing I have ever seen. I love this stage of life that Mason is in right now!
Well there is an update on our lives here in China. We are currently planning to go on a trip to Dali, China with Jeff and Maren next weekend because it's Mid-Autumn Festival here in China and they get a few days off school. We are excited to start exploring China!
