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.

At the hair salon!

Today was braid day! I picked Zamara up early from school and we went over to Angie's Hair Salon to get her hair braided. A friend had won a gift certificate at a charity event and passed it along to us. Zamara wanted to have extensions to make her hair longer so she could flip it around her head.

She had a lot of fun. Karen gave her candy, washed her hair, and made her feel very pampered. It took about 2 and 1/2 hours. (whew!) Zi did so great. She sat there the whole time watching videos on the ipod. I think it looks so cute. I didn't get any "after" pictures, but will take some tomorrow morning.

It was all great fun. I love that Zamara is girly and likes this kind of stuff.

Christmas School Program

Last night was ZiZi's school program. It was so cute!! She did such a good job (very little nose picking-which was an improvement from last year). We have video too but I haven't checked it out yet to see if any of it was usable. It was kinda dark in the auditorium and the pictures didn't turn out so great. Well, enjoy!

Also, today is hair braiding day at the salon! So excited to see what Zamara will look like. I am a little misty eyed thinking about this being her first time to the salon for braids. I will post pictures and video soon.

Merry Christmas,

Thankgiving Pics

We had a great Thanksgiving here in Flagstaff. Craig's parents came to visit. We had a lot of fun and did a ton of cool stuff. We went shopping on Black Friday, ate a lot food, made a gingerbread house, watched movies, played 3-year old board games, and drove to Williams (exciting, I know!).
