Celebrating Miracles!

Although there is always some hardship in our life, this Christmas we are celebrating the many miracles of Mia! The previous two Christmases were surrounded by hospital stays and surgeries. This Christmas is surrounded by sweet successes. Mia recently tested out of speech, passed her EEG (no sign of seizures) and may soon test out of special education. There are always challenges for Mia, but for this holiday season, we are celebrating her soaring speech abilities, emerging walking skills, precious smiles and contagious laughter! She will forever be our "special" miracle, our angel.

All four of our kids bring us immeasurable joy!
They light up our everyday and fill our hearts with the greatest love possible.
Most of all, they are happy and healthy.
This is the greatest gift of all!
If that is not the best Christmas ever, I don't know what is!

A Thanksgiving Celebration For Sure!!!

Thanksgiving Day was also the twins' birthday!!! How appropriate is that? I just cannot believe how much has happened in their two short years! I think back to where Mia was two years ago, one year ago and six months ago. It is nothing short of amazing!

To say I am thankful for the things in my life is such an understatement. I am married to the best man I know, my soul mate. I have four outstanding children that complete my heart, a phenomenal, loving family that would do absolutely anything for us and an amazing group of supportive girlfriends. My family and I are all in good health. So, what word do you use to describe blessings that are so profound? I haven't found one. I just know that my heart is happy and full this Thanksgiving.

Happy birthday girls!!! I love you with all my being!
