A Family reunion....

My beautiful niece arrived in India on Friday night to help us on our last leg towards home. With three babies we need 3 adults to accompany them home so our darling niece very happily volunteered her services.

It was emotional seeing her at the airport and the big surprise was that she got through customs very easily and was out of the airport within 35 minutes of her plane landing - is this unheard of at Indiria Ghandi airport?

So Rachel is with us for a little over a week. So far I have taken her shopping at M Block market where she bought herself a coat and a warm hoodie pullover as she didnt really believe how cold it could be in Delhi. After spending a measly $30AUD on these two items we did more baby clothes shopping.....

Last night we had a pizza night with Gachy, Fernando and Francisco and Ryan and Ruben and Zara and Aiden. There were lots of laughs and a touch of sadness as we realised this would be the last time we would be altogether as Ryan and Ruben fly home Wednesday night and Gachy and Fernando the next day. We have been so blessed already with our 3 gorgeous children but to have also met these wonderful people along the journey is so incredible. I cant wait to take our children to Miami in 5 years time or so (Disneyworld Orlando) but also to catch up with Ryan and Ruben and Zara and Aiden again and hopefully a trip to Argentina can also be in the plans. I will miss them all so much ......Thank goodness for Skype to help stay in touch.

This week sees us ensuring all the paperwork moves along smoothly so we are thankful Rachel is here to help out with the babies. Today Andrew and Rachel are seeing the Taj Mahal so I have my three babies all to myself.....

Here is a pic of my gorgeous niece on her first night in India cuddling her cousin Sophie....
