Hallelujah Harvest 2009

Fairy Princess Anna and Cinderella Erin

Our friends from Small Group's children

The cousins!
Anna and Blake had the right idea!
Anna wanted to eat everything they gave her...save some for mommy!

Getting the hang of it very quickly!

We attended our annual Hallelujah Harvest on Sunday night. The girls were both princesses! They had a great time collecting candy and then they joined daddy at his "trunk" to help distribute candy. As always, it was a blast!

Countdown and Lockdown

We have begun the countdown - yeah! Anna's palate surgery is scheduled for first thing Thursday morning, and it's so nice to finally be at this point in time. We've decided to put Anna in full lockdown mode this week which means she isn't going anywhere! We want her to be healthy on Thursday and with the outbreak of the flu running rampid we aren't taking any chances. Please continue to pray with us for her perfect health for Thursday. We also ask for your prayers concerning her recovery being quick and as painless as it can be. Our biggest heart's desire is that within a few weeks after surgery we will see a major improvement in her speech. If she does this, they will not "label" her with apraxia and attribute the delay to overall low muscle tone, palate issues and related to her VCFS - all things that can be overcome in a shorter time frame. Thank you all for your continued care and concern for us as we jump over this next hurdle! We can't wait to rejoice with all of you on what's on the other side!
