~Tis The Season~

For the holidays and to play catch up! Wow, it has been almost 8 months since I posted. Life is absolutely amazing, I find that I spend very little time on the computer as family times keep me very busy and totally fulfilled. So where to begin...Summer was a blast, we did tons of swimming which Zoie loves, playing outside and just hanging out. Josh turned 18, so hard to believe...Zoie celebrated her 2nd Birthday and Caleb became a teenager!!! Zoie enjoyed Halloween this year, she would knock (quietly) on the door and then say thank you and off to the next house we would go. And now it's almost Christmas, we are all decorated, put up the tree, have plenty of snow and we are now waiting for SANTA! I've added a small variety of pictures so enjoy and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

Our beautiful little girl!

Zoie loved blowing out her candles and having us sing to her, so of course when she asked "again" we couldn't resist :)

Ok so we took Josh out for his 18th birthday, boy was he embarrassed when they asked him to sit on this so they could sing to him, LOL!

Caleb enjoyed fireworks in his desert, bring on the teenager!

What a precious little flower!

Our little girls new best friend is BIG BIRD, so imagine her excitement when we took her to see his show...well I think her face says it all!!!

~Our Sweetie~

Zoie is just amazing!!! She is blossoming everyday, she was placed in my arms for the first time 8 months ago and it is so much fun to watch her grow and change. She is laughing all the time, she is such a happy baby. She now has 10 teeth and has been trying to get 2 more...her hair is getting longer (it was shaved)...she is still little although her feet have grown quickly :) She has about 10 words she says that are clear, then she has a whole lot that is her own little language! She loves to wait for the boys' bus to come home, she runs to the window and bangs on it and waves trying to get their attention, when they finally look she blows kisses, too sweet....She plays hide and seek with us, she either hides behind the couch, puts the blanket over herself or just covers her eyes and just laughs when we keep saying "Where's Zoie?" She is a true joy!!!

They have crafts for the kids, a parade with the dragon and drums and food is catered in....and lots of socializing which is great. We also had another first, our baby girls first Valentines Day home! She is definitely our sweetie!!! Enjoy the new pictures :)

Gotcha Day July 29, 2007

Gotcha Day July 29, 2007

After waiting for what seemed liked forever, I met and held our daughter in my arms for the first time!!! While waiting in the lobby on the third floor of our hotel, we watched as a woman walked down the hallway with a baby that was crying soooo hard it broke my heart, she was carrying our baby!!! She looked so different from her referral picture, she was tiny and they shaved her hair super short. I waited about another 20 minutes for them to place her in my arms, crying the whole time...wanting to hold her and comfort her so badly. When I finally held her my heart melted all over again and she had me wrapped around her little finger, and still does!!!
She is a wonderful baby! She has changed so much over the past six months it's amazing. She is very active, always on the go, has several words in her vocabulary now and loves to dance. I could go on forever, she is just perfect and a true blessing as are our boys! We are truly blessed beyond words with all of our miracles!
