Erin and C.J. had a sleepover with Aunt Jenny last night. We had a good time going out to dinner then watching movies before they went to bed. Thank's guys for loaning me Polar Express since we didn't have time to watch it. The three of us usually all sleep together in my spacious double bed. It makes for a tight squeeze and last night it just wasn't happening. Aunt Jenny ended up moving to the couch around 4 am. I am going to definitely have to get a new bigger bed before Abby gets here....

More Christmas

Christmas came and a GREAT time was had by all! Abby raked in also! I will post pictures of some of her loot (sp?) later.

Zachary thought his First Christmas was Great!

Christopher telling Zachary, "Wait till next year!!!"

Virginia and Erin absolutely LOVED spending Christmas together this year! Their panda bears are great. They are made by FurReal and do all kinds of neat things. Aunt Jenny wants to get one for Abby but so far they are sold out everywhere!

Jack (AKA BATMAN) enjoyed spending Christmas in Virginia this year and had such a good time that he fell asleep in his Batman outfit clutching some of the new clothes that Santa had given him. ......

Christmas Morning

Merry Christmas Christopher!

Maddie opens her stocking

My niece Erin with my Christmas present to her. She loved it. I also got her a From China With Love calendar. She had seen mine from last year and has asked for one all year since.

And To All A Goodnight!

It's Christmas Eve and I am off to spend the night with my sisters family. My brother and I spend the night every Christmas so we can watch the kids wake and open their presents. Next year I hope to do the same but also with Abby. I gave Quackers and Cassie their Christmas Presents right before I left. Kitty mobiles and new catnip scratching pads! HO HO HO !!!


I want to take a moment to tell all of my family and friends how grateful I am to have all of your love and support as I continue my journey to Abby. It means the world to me and I am THANKFUL to have each and everyone of you in my life. I hope your holiday season is as special as you all are to me.

Ready For Christmas!

My Christmas tree is up, shopping done, presents wrapped and out of town gifts mailed. (IM trying not to think about the small fortune I paid after waiting in line 45 minutes at the UPS store so that my gifts would be delivered in time for Christmas) Pretty good though with 8 days left to spare! Now I can sit back and enjoy the holiday.

Cassie and Quackers are also ready for Christmas. Still not the best of buds but I forced them to hang out together while I decorated my tree. No hissing but lots of stink eyes. Maybe these 2 will decide it is finally time to be friends. That would be a great gift for me! That and a log in date!!!!

Adoption Stalker

My name is Jenny (hand raised) and I am a "Adoption Stalker". I am. I admit it. Today on my daily quest to find any adoption related material on the internet I stumbled across this blog entry. Wow I'm not alone...I mean I knew I wasn't but it was nice to see this validation in print. I hope the author of this entry won't mind me posting it?? See for a while now I have thought about posting on just this subject but I wasn't sure I would be able to explain it. Okay I don't do this at work but with a few exceptions she describes my routine pretty well. I wanted my non-adopter readers to get a feel for what my life has become. Click above on today's blog entry title Adoption Stalker and read her entry. Make sure you read the comments she received also.

Eating For Two???

Okay So tonight I went to a Christmas party. While trying to find something to wear it seems that things I was wearing last year around this time have become pretty tight.
Unfortunately I have gone up a size since my paperchase journey. Maybe even eating for two even though only one of us is benefiting from the calories and sadly its not Abby. So for all you other stressed out people in " Adoption Land" anyone else have this problem???
