A Busy Week & a Welcomed Gift

It was a crazy, busy last week around our house. Seems like we had something to do every night - gymnastics, ballgames, meetings, etc. This coming week doesn't look any slower & neither does the weekend. Here's some highlights of our week:

Zoe hanging with Claire, a co-worker's daughter, at my school's jr. high girls' basketball game. Zoe helped Claire write on the white board in my classroom.

Zoe & her friend Avery playing at our house.

Aside from all of the craziness we did receive the most treasured Christmas gift this week - a Christmas card. See, every year since adopting Zoe, we receive a Christmas card from her orphanage about 2 weeks after Christmas. We look so forward to receiving it that Paul & I are like kids in a candy shop just waiting for it to arrive in the mail. We always enjoy opening & reading what the orphanage director writes. He didn't disappoint this year! What a precious gift!

This is the return address.

The amount of postage it took.

The card itself - in 3D no doubt!

The inside of the card.

And the message from Director Dou.

The back of the card.
