Irma's mom arrived at Doha airport on Friday. She was warmly welcomed and my children are thrilled to have her here until January 5th. She brought many of the things we still had in storage from Miami as well as foods we cannot get here in Qatar. Goya comes to mind! Her first day we took her to the International Holiday Bazaar and the pool. Her jet lag is remarkably almost non-existent. My kids call her Abba, which is short for abuela. Welcome Abba!
