In November 2004 we started the journey to bring a baby home from China ... five years later, in October 2009, we met Isobel Pingqin.
Our little livewire known as Izzy.

What have we been up to?

Well we've been spending all weekend, most weekends just doing landscaping, planting and house things.  Have built flyscreens for all doors and windows, just about all plants are in now, one path left to do, then we need to tidy up the very back of our block which has had no attention since we knocked the old hosue down.
Izzy had her first ballet concert this past weekend and she was fabulous - no photo opportunities though which is so disappointing.  Only a DVD.
Christmas tree went up to stop Izzy hounding me about Christmas, but I can see that she and Stanley are going to destroy the decorations down low.  Stan the cat doesn't know what to make of it.
The grass is now looking extra lush and green too.
These first three aren't supposed to be sideways but blogger won't let me rotate them.  It's a nice photo of Ben so needs to go in.

Grass looking very lush (we don't normally have a trailer parked at the front door, but it is full of rocks and the temptation to throw them if left on the street is high!
And below, our side path which still needs to be "done",  when we can agree on something we both like (has to be soft surface).
