Home sweet home...

We spent today in major recovery mode after a long day of travel yesterday…  

 Waiting for our flight to come HOME...

Grace has definitely stolen the show these days…  Abby and Andrew use to always want to sit by their mommy, now it's all about Gracie.  I don't blame them a bit :-)

All day yesterday and periodically throughout the week last week, I thought about everything that I needed to do when we got home (pick up the house since we left in sort of a whirlwind, change Grace's sheets on her bed and get her room ready for her return, figure out supper when we got home, etc).  I shouldn't be surprised because they think of everything, but when we arrived home (exhausted and starving) from the airport (later than we had planned because our flight was delayed), my mother and sister-in-love had our favorite meal ready to eat and they had spent a good bit of the day cleaning our house (moms out there, you know what a treat it is to come home to the freshly vacuumed lines in your carpet), completed laundry, and my personal favorite, a Lysoled house (remember, when we left Abby was just getting over the flu or something similar), and some of Grace's favorite toys were Cloroxed!  THANK YOU MARY AND BECCA!!!  After we stuffed our faces, we celebrated Christmas with David's parents (our 3rd Christmas present celebration)!


Abigail's favorite gift from Crack and Toot (David's parents) was a James Avery charm bracelet.   The most special part about it is that her first charm is the same one that I wear on my necklace (a cross with a heart in the middle).  

Andrew's favorite gift was his new bike!

Grace's favorite present was...

The wrapping paper!

Besides the wrapping paper, we all loved the new book that she got called "The Tickle Monster."  It even comes with Tickle Monster gloves, that I tested out on Andrew...

David and I have been fighting a cold for the past 3 days, will you please pray that we fully recover quickly and that Grace stays healthy?  Please also pray for Grace's cardiology appointment on Monday.  It feels all to familiar because last time Grace was discharged from Boston, it was at her first cardiology appointment (on a Monday) that the wheels fell off.  Remember, they tried to do a sedated echo on her and her oxygen levels went super low and she was struggling to breathe… and you know how that story unfolded from there :-/.  Will you please pray that this cardiology appointment is the complete opposite and that her cardiologist (and everyone else that knows her case) will be blown away by how amazing her heart looks on echo, sounds on exam (it sounds good to my untrained ear with my new stethoscope :-), how clear her chest X-ray looks, and how awesome she looks clinically?  



Much love, thanks and blessings, sweet Village!!!

GRACIE STRONG (in God's strength)
