We are the Ducommuns! There are 4 of us now-Craig, Laura, Zamara, and now Mahashavah, our 1 year old son. We adopted Zamara from Ethiopia in 2008. Our son is also from Ethiopia and we are hoping to bring him home soon. We live Flagstaff Arizona. We are so glad you found us. Take a look around and don't forget to leave us a message.

Thanksgiving in Denver

Hi everyone. We got home from Denver on Monday evening. We had a great trip visiting Craig's family. We were busy the whole week, but had an amazing time with everyone. Zamara really loves to be with family. I miss those times when we are here in Flagstaff just the 3 of us. Here was our week in a nutshell:

Tuesday: we drove from Flagstaff to Phoenix and spent the night. We had fun swimming in the pool before bedtime

Wednesday: few from Phoenix to Denver. Very uneventful. Got the rental car and stopped at Mustard's Last Stand for hot dogs on the way to Craig's parents house.

Thursday: Thanksgiving, of course! Craig Uncle Ron and Aunt Virginia came over with the 3 boys. Ethan loved Zamara. They held hands most of the day--very cute. Ethan was so good with her.

Friday: early morning shopping, lunch at Parisi, and then off to see Santa Claus at the downtown tree lighting in Littleton.

Saturday: This was a big day--we took Zizi to Casa Bonita for the first time. It's the Disneyland of Mexican Restaurants--as cousin Chris would say (we later found out he stole the line from SouthPark). Zizi loved Casa Bonita! She could have eaten the chicken and cheese enchaladas all night! We also took the lightrail to downtown Denver and walked around for a while before we went to Casa Bonita

Sunday: church, swimming, and celebrating Grammy and Papa's birthdays at Red Robin.

Monday: we flew back to Phoenix and then stopped at the Spaghetti Factory for dinner.
