Today is 35 months since we began our adoption journey to our Zoe Katherine. We have had
many mountains and valleys , stopped at some pot holes. All in all the journey has not been
so bad. Soon we will be able to post and share with the world what we already know.


Today is Feb 22 , 2010 and we have much to celebrate this month.

One of those things is Valentines Day ! Caroline and I made her school Valentines this year.

We cut out 2.5 inch hearts in red and pinks and we glued them to white paper doileys.

She wrote her classmates names on them and we added a bad with a chocolate or Pink iced

heart shaped little Debbie Cake in a Valentine bag. We attached the bags to her homemade

Valentines. She carried them to school in a white basket with red hearts on it.

We had alot of fun making the valentines and eating the left over cakes !

November 2009

In November 2009 We lost Grandma Madjerac to her age. She was 97 1/2 and she lived a long
long life. Sadly she was not in a place where she recognised anyone anymore and she could
no longer talk. RIP Grammie !

The family also spent some time with my brother and Niece in Virgina and My mom also
joined us. I will add photos if I can find them. okay no luck with those photos they are uploaded to picasa and not walmart where I usually keep them.

October 2009

October was not my best month. First Our Bailey Dog got sick and then she passed away.

4 months later and I still look for her when we come home from somewhere . Molly also

started showing signs of something in her nose. If you know Molly and how mischievious she

is you would have thought what we did she inhaled a bead or something up her nose .

I will post a photo of the cake I made , Bailey and Molly if I can find her and my sweet

Caroline in her Hula Girl Costume.

September Family Vacation

On September 19th 2009 our family took a vacation to Honolulu Hawaii.

We had a wonderful time took many tours played on the beach a little the surf was really

rough at dangerous levels. We took in a Luau for Caroline and just relaxed . The weather

beautiful. I will post a few photos above .
