another day in the life...

Over the weekend, we attended an AGCI gathering at the childrens museum in GR. A family that we traveled with was able to come from Cleveland to attend. It was so good to see them. Yikealo and Zipporah were relinquished by their birth moms around the same time - last March. (I cannot even begin to imagine what Z's birth mom is feeling right now and often wonder how far her disease has progressed. It has been a year since she made the decision to give her child a better life) Anyway, Z knew right away who Yikealo was and really just acted like she had just seen him yesterday. They did end up playing a little and he really got Z laughing her glorious laugh that we all love. Hopefully we will be able to see them again soon.

Happy Valentine's Day

We celebrated Zipporah's 3rd birthday with family last night and then she was baptized today. She is completely worn out. She finally understands the gift thing and of course, chocolate cake!

Christmas 2009

So, Zipporah was not so impressed with our American Christmas. She really couldn't have cared less about the presents. We asked her if she wanted to see what was in the present and she said "no thank you". I guess she is not as Americanized as we thought - that's ok though.

Zipporah's first experience with snow was memorable. She just kept saying "it's cold". But of course, then I couldn't get her to come inside!

Pumpkin love

We carved pumpkins last night and Zipporah had the best time. She just screamed with delight! Oh the simple pleasures in life.
