Gotta Getcha Back

We started this journey many years ago, knowing that our daughter was waiting for us somewhere in China. That journey began in 2004, but after a setback healthwise, we had to pull out, thinking our hopes were dashed forever. Then in late 2005, with renewed purpose and strength we again began the process of our adoption. We were logged into China March 28th, 2006, and were matched with our Dear Daughter, October 13th, 2009. GOTCHA 12/14/09 Forever Ours 12/15/09

First Day Of School...... well "Pre-School" 9/7/11

So hard to believe that my girl has started pre school...... she didn't flinch and ran to the door.  She couldn't wait to get there.  We rehearsed it for several days, that I would drop her off and I would come back....... will have to post the video of breakfast that morning..... wow.  Can't believe how big she is already.  Time is flying by.......

Sunday's Mini Poker Run with friends galore !!!!! 4/9/11

What an incredible day that we had with friends that we haven't seen in quite a while.  It was our 2 year anniversary of meeting Kelly, pictured above..... wow time really flies.........

The weather could have been more cooperative, but what we lacked in good warm sunny weather, we made up for in warm sunny people.

The next run is coming up, and we intend to make that one too........

March 22nd...... 2011 Soooo Spring is finally here, or is it ?

So, Spring is finally here.... or so the calendar says, BUT, we have snow coming tonight or early tomorrow in the A.M. and I have to now worry about my flowers, that seem to have popped up overnight throughout our property.  Hopefully they will survive, or re-grow.

Our adoption business is back up and running, after a 2 1/2 week hiatus.  We traveled South to the Florida Keys with some friends and had a wonderful trip.

I'm anxious to launch a bunch of new banners that we've been working on.  It brings us such joy to partake in other families joy during their adoption celebration.  Orders have been coming in, and it's very refreshing to be suppling people with a product, and a service that can not be found elsewhere.  Looking forward to a lucrative Spring.

Gotcha Back

First Puppy Match..... 2/6/11 Hai Dao Ching Shih MC

Our first puppy match.... Ching Shih all of 13 weeks old......... lots of fun, and we can't wait to do it again..... !!!  The Judge at the end, came over and told me that he can't wait for me to show under him again, when he is a little bigger....... little did he know that the other dog was being handled by a Pro, and that's a total illegal maneuver in a Match show..... owner handled all the way, but I wasn't gonna rat him out...... he's helped me out in the past...,  but we'll get him next time.....  !!  Stupidly, I can't remember the Judges name..... now have to search for it !
