On Sunday a bunch of us got together to have a little good-bye party for Ruhiyyih. She is moving to Washington D.C. on Thursday of this week. It was mostly family but also some of Ruhiyyih's close friends came also. We had a great time visiting. You can also read about the party on my mother-in-law Bonita's blog also. :) Here are some pictures I took of everyone.
This is a picture of Bonita standing on a bench in the living room taking a picture of the whole group. :)
Here are all five siblings together one last time before Ruhiyyih moves. From top to bottom: Laurel, Rue (my hubby), Ruhiyyih, Taraz and Rahmat.
I loved this picture because the cake matches Ruhiyyih sandals and Taraz's shirt perfectly. They ate the cake while we all sat around discussing what it must tast like. Laurel said it was a great way to enjoy the cake without actually eating all the calories. :)
Here are some pictures that my mom took.
My big bro, Ben.
George and Bonita. Cute couple! :)
Rahmat messing with Taraz. Don't you love their hair!? :)
Ruhiyyih and Justin, her best friend Veronica's little boy. He was such a delight at the party.
Me tickling Justin. Isn't he so cute!?
As you can tell, we had a great time! I love getting together with family and friends. I am so thankful for the family that God had blessed me with. We are going to miss Ruhiyyih when she goes but she is following what the Lord has lead her to do.
