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.

Love AZ Winters

The weather here has been amazing.  We spend our weekend days outside riding bikes (John rode all the way to school and back) and our evenings out back by the fire roasting marshmallows.  

Can't beat that!!!

I love these two crazy kids more than anything in the world!  I just can't get enough of them.

Anyhow, I looked out the back window yesterday and saw the two of them dragging the patio cushions across the backyard, lining them up, laying on them, using a beach towel as a blanket and looking up in the sky at all the clouds.  Simple fun!  I love it!!!

In other news...

Johnboy lost his third tooth, received another perfect report card and tells everyone that will listen to him that his Dad's favorite song is, "I'm sexy and I know it!"  Love, love, love him.

Hopie girl is full of energy.  She loves to dance naked before bath time, wake her brother each morning and call her BFF/cousin, Paige on the phone numerous times a day to tell her she loves her.  She makes my heart so happy!
