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

X-Mas Day

I LOVE family traditions!!!  We celebrate with Jamie's family on Christmas Eve, my parents come over Christmas morning for breakfast (I made my Mom's infamous belgian waffles this year...ALL BY MYSELF) and to watch the kids open presents and then (after we play with all of our new toys) we head up to my parents for Christmas dinner!

Once again, all you have to do is scroll through the pictures to see what a magical time my children had.

After John opened his stocking (and before seeing all the gifts Santa left under the tree) he said, "This is the BEST Christmas  I ever had!"  

Hopie with her "Hope" doll!  

Pottery Barn kids has a small collection of dolls and to our surprise they had a "Hope" and a "Paige" doll!  There was no way Grams could pass those up:)

What a wonderful Christmas we had.  We feel so fortunate to be able to spend it with both of our families.

Now bring on 2011!!!!!!

We feel we are the lucky ones. Having you all close means more than anything else.

There is nothing better than walking in and having little arms waiting for hugs.

Like Grams, waiting for the next Christmas season! (which at your house begins in November).
