Guess where I went today...

Sesame Street...My Aunt Lera and Robert took me to see Sesame Street for one of my birthday presents. I was such a big girl and loved everything about my morning out. We were on the second row from the stage and the first seat on the aisle. Here are a few pictures but so many didn't come out due to the lighting. Thank you Aunt Lera and Robert. Guess what else, they already told me to plan on next year again, YIPPEE!

Thank you Jesus, Happy Birthday, Annabel...

Just a short note to say how grateful we are that God has given Annabel four wonderful years on this Earth. She has blessed many people along her journey called life, especially my family. A huge thank you to all who have been a part of Annabel life in these past four years. It is not without you that she would have come this far.
On our very good days it is so hard not to get caught up in the fact that maybe Annabel will be with us, that somehow this Trisomy 18 thing will just skip over her. Maybe she will just slide right under the radar somehow! Well as I went to my mailbox today, the reminder was there. I received my SOFT newsletter (Trisomy newsletter)and in it is the reminder that three more Trisomy children have passed since our last conference in July 2008. They are Aaron Barg, Charlotte Hayes 3 1/2yrs., and Rowan Sibthorp (8 yrs.) Of course so many more infants that have gone on to Heaven also.
So as our hearts go out to those whose arms long to hold or hug their children and their loss is still so fresh, let us hug ours that God is still allowing to be here on this Earth for whatever reason, only He knows.
I will follow up with more party pictures but I would like to label them and have to put on a slideshow.

Tara is home...

Yes, Tara did get to come home today. It took two trys but the second one worked. After church this morning I went to visit and they came in and said she was released. As we were packing up, Tara became sick. She had breakfast and I don't believe it sat well on her belly. So they withdrew this release and gave her meds for nausea. Later this afternoon they said she could go. She is still not well. She slept as soon as we returned home, she couldn't eat the supper she requested and was white as a ghost. I am hoping it is that she is so weak from not eating and being so sick this week. She should get results on Tues morning,hopefully.

This picture that follows is a hint to what is happening in our home this week:
