the days of December are nearly gone...wow, we have had so much fun this month!!! The pictures prove it as does the lack of blogging, LOL! Uncle Matt is here from CA, Mike and I got away for a long weekend to San Antonio for his Christmas party which is always a wonderful way to ring in the season (after that FANTASTIC NYC trip too)! Then it was fast and furious as Christmas came (and went). Today we are "housebound" due to a monsoon of rain, all the new gifts are out and open everywhere. Life is good! Blessings to all, may the gift of Christmas shine brightly all through the year, not just on Christmas day! Be ready, PICTURE OVERLOAD!! there were 269 pictures from the last 2 weeks!
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.Jeremiah 29:11 Our unexpected journey with Down syndrome, babies with heart conditions, T21, and AVSD.
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!
