This is my sister who I am sure is going to be Hasina's Angel or Fairy Godmother or whoever it is that gives her ANYTHING and plans on making her every wish come true. Hasina adores her, she is the next best thing if mommy can't do what she wants. I hate when we have to leave the family in PA but this time was extra hard because Hasina and Jackie have a special bond that I know it breaks both their hearts to be apart. I just hope one day we can move back or at least closer ;o)

Well, I have been out of town with the kids for about three weeks now! I will finally get to see Jon on Saturday, and let me tell you I have been missing that boy something fierce! I can not wait to have our family back together... The first week we went to Disney World and then Jon flew back to NM till now. We have to do all our visiting in the summer since Zack is in school now. Here are a few pictures of the DW trip.

Today we went on a hike in Jemez Springs. We had a wonderful time the kids got to wade in the creek and climb on rocks they had a great time with their BFFs. We found lots of spots we want to go back for a camping trip. Jon also got me a beautiful necklace from Etsy the artist is donating 30% of the proceeds to a family that are adopting from Ethiopia. I love gifts with a cause. Hope everyone had a great Mother's Day! And my prayers are with the families waiting to bring their children home.

Today Zack and I participated in the Mom and Son Olympics. We had a ton of fun! We did sack races, water balloon toss, balloon hug race and lots of other silly games. There were many times that Jon felt the need to video tape so I am guessing I must have looked like a total fool, the things we will do for our kids! I guess I must not of embarrassed Zack to much he wants to do it again next year. I'm going to start training now ;o)

I think Hasina is really starting to love me! All along Hasina has been able to go to anyone and be happy. I was not any different than anyone else, she just likes to be held and she likes to be talked to. Lately she has started to reach for me but still happy with just being held by anyone. Today it happened she actually got the "stranger danger" cry and whine! We went to a picnic at my friend Jenn's and she only wanted me not even her Dad would do. This might sound strange to be excited about for people who have not adopted but for adopting families you know how exciting this is! This means she KNOWS ME and that I am the one that will take care of her needs and be there. I loved her from the moment I knew she was on this Earth but now I really think she is falling for me too! I am just so excited!

We have been out of town for Easter,Passover and we also went on a little trip to Tucson to visit the AZ family. Life is great Hasina is doing really well she has gained about a 1 1/2 lbs since being home. She is in the 10% for weight and 50% for height Grandpa is hoping for a basketball player :o) Zack has about 20 days left of school and he is doing so great. He is also very excited about his up coming soccer tournament (he wants a green mo hawk). Aaron is staying home with me till next fall we are having a lot of fun going to the park and playing on the trampoline. Well that is all for now. I am working on getting my thoughts together for a post about Ethiopia. It is taking a bit because it was an amazing wonderful emotional trip that I have not been able to get my feelings around yet. Stay tuned :o) In the meantime here are a few pics to keep you going.

Things are better than great, I really don't know how I could ever be happier! Hasina is a true blessing just like her big brothers. Hasina is sleeping all night 10 hrs, can you believe it? Here are a few pictures to get you through till I can get some time to be a better blogger ;o)
