Katherine Anne was born on June 26, 2006. Shortly after her birth...she was diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia associated with the 22q chromosomal deletion. Kate was a trooper...endured 4 open heart surgeries, 5 heart catherizations and spent over 150 days in the hospital. On January 15, 2008, her heart gave out and she passed into her Heavenly Father's Arms. During her 568 days here on Earth...she was always smiling. We miss her immensely...but rejoice in her new pain-free Eternal Home.
Seth's teacher had her 1st annual Valentine Box competition. Seth was all excited. He wanted to make a cat. So, thanks to a new shoe box...some recycled pop cans and some scrapbook paper...he had his cat!
He got all his Valentine's ready...and headed off to school. I joined him for his party....I made heart cookies for all the kids....they were a HUGE hit!
They played a bunch of minute-to-win-it type of games...this was a candy obstacle course!
and everyone loves throwing marshmallows (just not cleaning them up!)
I love that I can come in and see him interact with all his classmates...he was SO excited that he won "FUNNIEST" box after a class-wide vote. They all took it so seriously. The whole class did so well on their boxes...it was neat to see. Here he is with his learning group...all girls :)
Welcome to our blog...and thanks for sharing in our journey through this amazing ride called life! We are blessed...in many ways by our loving Savior. It is our hope and prayer...that this blog might bring you a little laughter...a little encouragement...a little hope...or a little of whatever you need to help you out today!
Seth is our totally amazing 11 year old! He brings us nothing but complete joy. He loves soccer and basketball, school (especially reading and math), playing with friends and collecting any type of sports card. He excels in school in all areas and usually is a great big brother. He is a great kid with a super heart.
Grant is our "on the go" 5 year old! Grant loves to explore...and wants to be outside all the time. If he can't be outside, he loves to play Wii, board games and with his Legos. He wants more than anything to be big like Seth. He can make me laugh on almost a daily basis...and his hugs beat no other.
