We kicked off the New Year with having friends over to our house for games, movies, and fried chicken. We had a good time, and it was the first holiday, living over here, where I wasn't really sad the whole time.
Being that I was 6 months pregnant, I really began nesting this month. I borrowed a huge stack of baby clothes from my friend, cleaned out the guest bedroom, bought the baby furniture, and ordered the bedding and decor.
Ian put together the crib and helped to get the room all ready for his baby girl.
At the end of the month, we took our final exams for our first semester of Arabic, and had a two week break from school. Somewhere before February, we took down our Christmas tree.
