this is jena---this is jena on steroids----

Good news no pneumonia, bad news bad 'asthma exacerbation'. My sweet baby is a demon child. There is no telling what will set her off.It is like the lion cage at the zoo- throw some candy at her and run the other way. Thankfully she is much better and only 3 more days of the evil meds left.

6 years already???

yep- 6 years ago today I was in China meeting Stef for the first time. 6 years went by in the blink of an eye. I am at work and she is out celebrating by doing her favorite thing- shopping for new clothes!

Hag HaSiddur

a very special celebration at Stef's school tonight when she was presented with her own prayer book. The class put on a hour long performance of song for all the parents. Stefanie was very proud to have a solo part. The prayer book cover was needlepointed by out good friend Judy- it has Stef's hebrew name and a very Stefanie-esque picture of Jerusalem on the front, the China symbol for love on the back and hard candies and roses along the spine. Pure Stefanie style all the way. Everyone agreed it was a beautiful program.
