Welcome Back!

Hello Everyone!
Remember me? My name is Ada Marie, and I'm 7 years old. This blog has been on pause for three years, and a lot has happened in that time! We settled into our new home overseas, and we now live in an apartment near the city center that we like very much. I started first grade this year, and I am learning to read in two languages. My little brother, Benjamin, has grown up a lot too. He 4 years old now and loves to draw pictures and build robots out of Legos. We have a new baby brother too! His name is Samuel and he is almost 2 years old. He is the busiest, noisiest, funniest, and most energetic baby I have ever seen! Here are few pictures of us that Mommy took on Easter Sunday morning standing on our balcony. I like to have my picture taken, but the boys don't much like it so she had to take the pictures very fast! Anyway, I'll try to check in here at least once a week to give you a glimpse of all our happenings here.

;-) It's good to be back on the blog!

Last Shots of Istanbul

We hid Easter eggs on the balcony at Grama's house.
Benjamin had fun, but his egg hunt quickly turned into an egg toss!

I found one!
Ada was delighted!
Thanks Grama and Papak for a fun Easter!

Easter Eggs

We are really enjoying celebrating Easter with Grama & Papak!
Today we put on some of Papak's old running shirts
(to protect our clothes) and colored Easter eggs!
Here are a few pictures:
Benjamin promptly cracked his egg and began to peel it.
Then he proceeded to eat it all up!
Grama had also made special little Easter baskets for us!
We got Turkish sweets, stickers, paper dolls, and kids card games.
Yum! It was all wonderful!
Thank you Grama & Papak!
Happy Easter everyone!
Christ is Risen!
