Next post will be a close to the 31 for 21, but for tonight...I must share the Halloween week...Parker sported his Halloween shirts all week...thank you Lil Sis Designs for the Batty tee, SOOO many compliments as always(forgive the food, most of these were taken after dinner and we are messy)! Parker playing "boo" or "peek" outside, fixing the trash bag (common problem in our house) or Taylor is teaching him to empty the trash at a young age..yes, his pants are wet since he dumped the cats food and water over and proceeded to bathe in it after trying to eat as much of it as he could... Sunday after church we went to the pumpkin patch to attempt pictures..lets just say I am very nervous about Sat's family picture this year..Sunday night Halloween..can I say I have the BEST husband around..who else would put on a Batman costume for his girls? Parker had to "warm up" to Batman. And my precious husband offered to let me stay home feet up, alone, with a glass of wine...in the end being with the family was way too tempting...these moments are fleeting as the kids grow up! Blessings to all!

Lara, 40 year old wife to Michael (married 17 years, best years of my life)! Mom to 4 wonderful kids! Taylor, 11, Mallory, 8, Madeline, 6, and Parker born 5/23/09. We found out after delivery Parker has Down syndrome and a complete AVSD. He was scheduled to have open heart surgery at 4-6months, but God intervened! His surgery was postponed until July 2010 and God healed his VSD hole in the process. So, on July 20, 2010, Parker had open heart surgery to repair his transitional AV canal defect. He was in ICU for less than 24hours and home in 72 hours. We never looked back! I own an Executive Search Firm focused on Accounting/Financial placement (used to work in Big 4). Actively involved in my kids activites and school; all are competitive swimmers and son Taylor plays tournament baseball. Girls do tumbling as well. Avid runner and boot camp fanatic. Used to be a competitive figure skater growing up. LOVE to shop, ebay/etsy crazed, addicted to Starbucks non-fat lattes, a child of the KING, thankful that we are saved by faith and grace!
