We decided on Saturday to go to the Home & Garden Show after I won two free tickets to it. We love going to it and the girls always have fun...plus Grammy & Papa went with us and we loved seeing them! Karma was showing itself when after asking a woman if he could help her with her wheelchair, a man offered Mike three more free tickets (so none of us had to pay to get in).
We knew that bad weather was supposed to come in on Sunday but by the time we left the show at about 6pm the storm had already started. The roads were already getting slick (and we were about an hour away from home) so we slowly made our way home. About 30 miles away from home as we were passing an exit, a car slid between us and the car in front of us (almost hitting us)...it's not clear to us if they had missed the exit or if they slid out of control on the ice/slush but they were going WAY to fast. As they slid across our lane into the exit they hit the rear end of a car and that car spun around and and came right at us. Thank goodness Mike was driving and his quick reflexes kept them from hitting us. All I remember is closing my eyes and praying that we would be kept safe. We were all pretty shook up for the rest of the ride home!
Mike and Lexy playing at the "Trash Monster". Lexy loved using all the trash to add to the sculpture!
Lexy in her "bug" hat. They were making these cute hats out of wrapping paper. I was surprised when Lexy asked to make one as she isn't the girly hat type...I should have known, as soon as the hat was done she said she needed to decorate it to make it into a bug :-)

The worker gave us the contact information to get our fingerprinting done and gave us a family profile to fill out. She said that she would put our adoption contract in the mail for us to sign. She also gave us the advice to make a picture book of our family, home, etc. to go along with our homestudy when it's presented....she said it helps the people making the placement decisions to connect with us better...so you can be assured we are working on that picture book!
I'm so glad this e-mail came today. Between feeling like we are not getting anywhere on the adoption front, Gabe passing, not feeling well again and it being rainy and dreary out I needed some good news to brighten my day and my mood!!

When swimmy passed away I told Lexy that he could still hear her and that she could talk to him anytime she missed him. This morning while she was getting dressed I heard her talking, "I miss you Gabe", "I'm wearing green today because that's your favorite color", "I love you Gabe", were some of the things I heard.
This is hard :(

The councelor at school has been going in and talking to Lexy and her classmates about Gabe's condition and answering any questions they may have. Today will be a very hard day for the class I'm sure. I'm so sad that Lexy has to see and learn about this, she's going to be so sad...
