Paxton’s Family Day

And finally Monday was Paxton’s 2 year Family Day. He has been such a blessing to our family and such a little sweetie. He may be small (he finally hit 28 pounds….with clothes on) but he has never let his smallness stop him, he totally acts and thinks he’s just as big as the big…

654 Days…Another Milestone Reached

And Tuesday January 8th was Paxton’s Day. He was in Korea for 654 days and now he has been home that many days. We had rice and Mandu (dumplings) with mochi ice cream for dinner to celebrate. Paxton was with his foster family for much of those 654 days. He was their first foster child…

Happy 5th Birthday Edric!

Yesterday Edric turned 5. Poor guy had been sick most of the weekend but was finally on the mend. When he was asked what he wanted to do for his birthday he told us that he wanted to go to lunch with just mommy and daddy and to eat birthday cake. He also added in…

Coppelia 1 Year Home!
