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 2009

We had a wonderful Christmas this year.....in fact, the BEST one yet. John really got into the whole Santa thing and it was so much fun to see his face light up when he saw Santa (the real one) in person...



Christmas Eve was spent with Jamie's family. The kids looked adorable in their Christmas attire....and we had a blast visiting with everyone!




After dinner...we rushed home, told Ernie the Elf "night night," put carrots in the yard for the reindeer, left cookies and milk for Santa, and hopped into bed just as excited as could be!!!

My parents came over EARLY Christmas morning for breakfast and to open presents.








Then we headed up to their house for a yummy Christmas dinner!



Can't wait to do it all again next year:)

Oh gosh, my in-laws got us the same Elf on a Shelf thing, and I won't lie.... it scares the heck outta me.
