This is the amazing story of our micro preemie, John Craig. He was born on November 30, 2005 at 24 weeks and 5 days gestation. He weighed 1 pound 8 ounces and was 12 inches long. John is a true miracle and an inspiration to all that meet him!
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 a hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29.11

Christmas 2008

As mentioned previously, we had the best Christmas ever!!!

Christmas Eve was spent at Grammy and Papa's. John thoroughly enjoyed cruising around in the desert out back and riding in his car.

Before opening presents John ate 3 plate fulls of chips (and Daddy took a nap!)

John was very excited about his gift from Grammy and Papa....a new Art easel.

On Christmas morning Grams, Grandpa, Uncle Craig and Aunt Alli came over bright and early to open presents.

Aunt Alli and John opening gifts.

John loves his new chair,

And his new bike from Grams and Grandpa.

And, his tunnel and tee pee from Santa Clause!

I don't know who had more fun playing in it, Aunt Alli or John:)

After we cleaned up the mess....

John ventured out in the cold to try out his new bike!

We truly could not have had a better Christmas!

We are in total agreement - the best Christmas ever! Having the entire family together was the perfect gift!

All our love,

We also agree. Christmas Eve was wonderful, watching John run through the desert, ride in the car and open gifts. He makes us all smile. Christmas afternoon we enjoyed stopping by to have John show us all his new toys.

We are so blessed!

Grammy and Papa
