Joy: Congrats Ross Armstrong & Jaimie Evans!

My kid brother got engaged this weekend to the lovely Jaimie Evans!  Being this far away, I just wanted to shout out from this side of the ocean congrats, that Randall and I are so excited for you, and that we wish we could be there to celebrate with you two.  We look forward to watching you both live a long, rich life together!

Your big sis,



Paxton Elliot

One of the biggest trends we've seen in Bulgaria, though slightly unrelated, is the fact that we keep acquiring nephews!  Only a month ago, Luke Aaron Wyndham was born to Joy's sister and brother-in-law.  And now, this past Saturday, Paxton Elliot Mason was born to Randall's brother and sister-in-law!

He came into the world at a whoppin' 8 lbs. 6 oz...

We can't wait to meet this little guy!

Have to say it's pretty tough being so far away with all these little cheeks to pinch!  In the meantime, we're making sure to celebrate him Bulgarian style:

Here's Uncle Randall giving out chocolates to his colleagues in honor of little Paxton...

And, here's Aunt Joy's colleagues enjoying some cake for the little dude...

They all wished wonderful things for Paxton, his family, and his life.

They all celebrated you, Paxton!  We can't wait to hug you!!


Aunt Joy & Uncle Randall
