Kyrgyz Memories

I was wrapping presents last night when I remembered a box of treasures we had hidden away in JJ's closet. They are gifts we brought back from Kyrgyzstan to give to our families and friends. I don't want to spoil the surprise, so I am not going to say what they are until after Christmas, but I am so glad we thought ahead to buy these gifts for JJ to give everyone. It will be so fun.


While I was going through the box of Kyrgyz goodies, I found this...


This was actually his "baby" hat from when we picked him up, but we just had to see if it still fit. Using minor force, it did. Jerret was determined to get that thing on. We also purchased some larger hats for JJ to wear in the future. I wish I had a cute coat to match. I would totally dress him in this gear and take him to the grocery store, mall, Target, etc. with me. He's too cute not to share with the world. (I'm not biased at all).

Too Cute!! I took pics of the boys in their Christmas sweaters with their kalpaks on... they thought they were something else with those big tall hats on (although X was quick to point out that they didn't match his sweater!!).
JJ just gets cuter and cuter!!

You are right - he is too cute not to share with the world. A friend of mine got me 4 Kyrgyz nativities and we are passing those out for Christmas. I wish I would have bought more stuff while we were there.

Hi there! I am trying to get the word out that I am designing blogs to raise money for Real Hope for Haiti and my mission trip to the Dominican. Real Hope for Haiti has a Rescue Centre and I want to provide them with a Diaper Fund. Please check out my blog to help me raise my goal!
