Mercydez has been such a fighter and has gone against all odds. She is truly a miracle that has blessed many, many lives including ours. She is like family to us. It is amazing how the NICU can really bond people together.
With that said, please pray for Mercydez and for her parents to have the strength and courage to endure.

He loves his kids and would do anything for them, even if it is build a fort out of scrap wood because they wanted a look out to be able to watch all the animals. I think he did a great job.
Lenn's birthday is a huge deal to him, in fact he has tried to get it to be selected as a national holiday. We just don't know the right people I guess. A few years ago when he was driving the school bus he was telling the Mayor's husband about how important his birthday is and that he tries to celebrate it for at least 3 weeks. Next thing we know it is on the town marque. He was so excited, as you can tell, we had to a picture.
We were able to celebrate with cake and ice cream when he was home last weekend, but rest assured there will be more of a party later, after all it is Lenn's birthday!
Bentley did the candle work, we only had one 3 so he tried making another 3 with single candles, after Abby corrected us on Daddy's age. We thought he was turning 32, and Abby knew we were wrong and guess what, we were!
Thanks Lenn for all you do and have a happy birthday! We can't wait until you are done 'playing' in the mud and come home!

Not so funny, but oh so cute!
Here is how Abby sees them, in art of course. She brings this to me and says, "Look, here is Beke, she is happy she is having a girl. Look at Miles, he is mad they are having a girl". I don't know where she comes up with these things but they are 100% original. Miles and Becky are both happy they are having a girl. Congrats Miles and Becky and we will try to keep Abby under control.
Abby loves Becky and claims her as the cousin instead of Miles, even though she really likes him too.
Sometimes innocence IS bliss!!
I know the title says Abby, but I need Bentley's lovely 'Dad' balloon to tell the story. I was in the living room just outside of Bentley's room where both he and Abby were playing and out of the blue I heard a pop and Abby saying "Oh, my Daddy!" I asked "what?". She came out with the most serious face and put her arms in the air and said "Bentley just popped our Dad!" It was so funny and probably one of those 'had to be there' moments, but she acted as though Bentley had just wounded her Daddy!
Oh, what fun we have with Owen's medical equipment.
Without Owen's things where would the entertainment be.
Abby came home from school the other day and told me about a coloring contest. She was so excited and started coloring right away. I walked by a few minutes later and, of course, told her what a good job she was doing. She replied, "Yeah, 1st place gets $100 and 2nd place gets $50." I said "Wow"! She tell said, "I'm feeling that I will get 3rd, they get a book and NO dollars". I couldn't help but laugh, but she was so serious and distraught about not winning any money. I then told her that 3rd place would be great and a lot of kids won't even get a book.
