I haven't been soo good about keeping up my writing.  Lots of coals on the fire and it's taken a back burner.  We are nearing the end of our first year home with Aregash and I have lots planned to celebrate.  So coming soon....VERY a video from the last year.  Yay!!!!  I did it!  And even ahead of schedule (well, someone's schedule)!!  Tuesday we are finalizing her adoption (she is already "ours", but this is a technicality to receiving a US birth certificate).  Saturday (our FAMILY DAY--the day we stepped foot on US soil with her) we are having a little get-together with our close friends who have supported our adoption, past and present. Then Sunday we are having her dedicated in church where we will show her video.  So I am a little lot overwhelmed at the moment. 

 I have to admit that I haven't been the best at keeping up with anything.......her life book, sorting, filing, and printing pictures.  In fact, I told myself that BEFORE Christmas I would get a picture of Aregash on the wall with her brothers.  One day, finally, about a couple of months ago she looked up at the 4 frames hanging on the wall, pointed at the lady in HER frame, and said "who dat mommy?"  You woulda thought that would have done it for me. I feel like somewhat of a failure.

  BUT.....I am taking care of it THIS week......before our friends come to help us celebrate this wee one.  Seems like the right thing to do.  I'll post a picture soon.  I got a lot of grief from people when I hadn't changed my blog family picture to include Aregash.  It took me awhile to get my family together.  I surely don't love her any less!!

 I have a new computer, which I have kind of (very slowly) learned how to maneuver, and that makes all the difference when it comes to accomplishing things that involve a computer.  Which includes just about everything nowadays.  So I vow to be better at keeping things up-to-date.

Well you're doing a heck of a lot better than me! Tristen's nearly 16, and Olivia's 12. I only have their scrapbooks through age 5 and 2. It's ok. When they're out of the house, and we're not so busy living this life, then I will treasure the memories as I finish them. You're a GREAT MOMMY!

Congrats on almost 1 year home -- what a milestone! Updating pictures to show our new little girl is definitely on my to-do list also -- so hard when you're more than busy with just daily life!
