I'm almost all caught up!
In December I travelled home for Christmas. En route, I stopped in New York City to see Christine and visit Boston for potential grad school options next year! We had a great time getting her settled in to her new home in Midtown and seeing the sights.
My next stop was home, sweet home! I got lots of time hanging out with Henry and the rest of the family, as well as staying with friends all over Chicago! Time flies when you're having fun!

Everyone made it home for the holidays!
What goodies are in the stockings this year?!
Surprise, a dashiki for Nick!
And for dad!
Nigerian dashikis for everyone!
While in NYC, Christine and I had a street artists draw us, and by us, I guess he decided to draw strangers instead. Merry Christmas Mom!
There was a farm theme going on for Henry, but I think he likes to play with the boxes and bags even more!
Mom, Dad and I got to hang out with family in the Quad Cities one day!
Before I knew it, it was time to head back to NYC for Christine's birthday (sorry Nick!) and then flew back to Nairobi.
My birthday was celebrated in classic Sims style: bowling and KFC. Nairobi's one and only KFC was opened a few months ago, so it we feasted on crispy chicken, mashed potatoes and cole slaw! The bowling match was a close one...I only lost by 1 pin!!! And, it all came down to the 10th frame. I curse you Matt Schulze! Plus, friends organized a Hotel Hop around Nairobi, stopping for drinks and dinner in numerous locations. We all piled into the party matatu, again, for a fun night out on the town!
Delicious Thai food at The Stanley
Bowling at Village
Ending the night at Tamambos for some dancing and cowbell action!
