Just wanted to take a moment to give THANKS to The Lord for all our blessings. He is so good and we are so grateful for each and every life experience He has given us. My prayer for each one of you is that you will be thankful for the big and small things and that we would all realize that even in the hard times, we should give thanks. I hope that each one of you has a special Thanksgiving surrounded by people you love. I will be and I am so excited!

Philly is calling...

Pure, sweet, innocent...

Does this look like a sick baby to you? Its easy to forget. I got the sobering call from CHOP that reminded me yesterday that she does, in fact, have a lot of issues still. Issues that we will be dealing with head on come January 7th. Issues that I PRAY can be dealt with in January. Until then, we will continue to remember where God has brought us from and praise him for blessing us with this perfect little gift. Hutton continues to get stronger everyday with her walking. She is so afraid of falling that she just won't let go. A hard lesson to learn for us all.

And just in case you had any doubts about how strong she is, don't know if I mentioned it to you but Miss Buttons had H1N1 and recovered beautifully. God is so good. Cooper, on the other hand landed a stay at East Tennessee Children's Hospital and was very ill. We are all on the mend and ready for the holidays.Thanksgiving is here this year and David and I are so excited to host it this year. Thank you to all our friends for praying for our sweet baby. Please be praying that she will be ready to have reconstructive surgery on her trachea and we can then get her much needed Fontan. xoxo

Monkey Baby

Hutton's third Halloween was- well.... WET! She had so much fun though. She was the cutest Monkey Baby and we had a blast riding in Daddy's truck pulling all the trick or treaters around on the hayride. So FUN! Just have a few pictures to share.
Mary Lawson as Hannah Montana and Hadly as Disco Dolly... This was pretty funny. Cooper J ( who was recovering from a nice long hospital stay) dressed as a big fat lady. Look at Hutton next to him laughing! She thinks Cooper is so cute!

Reagan was dressed as some sort of Winter girl. It was a really cute costume and soooooo her!
Mimi wanted to be a "china girl". She is a little obsessed with China and I am pretty sure that she secretly wishes that she were adopted from China like some of her friends.
And one final picture of Hutton.
We had fun but I could have done without the rain. The kids didn't seem to mind. Happy fall ya'll!
