"Merry Christmas!"

Wow we have had a really great Christmas. The girls have gotten many wonderful gifts. I think our tree has never seen that many gifts at one time EVER! We were blessed! Ava loved unwrapping presents but after about 5 she got a little bored. Who wouldn't laugh at that? I think I'll just post some of my favorite moments.









This is all of Ava's Christmas gifts!

Emeline's goodies!

This is all of Lexis's gifts!

Miss Cutsy, Tutsy!

There's a new singer in this family!

WE may just have a new band here too!

She can play the guitar too!

So now you know how our family Christmas went....Spectacular! I made a lunch and it was very good. Ham, potatoes, sweet potatoes, mac and cheese and Holiday punch. Ava ate a little home=made mac and cheese and kept that down, so that was good!

Thanks to all our followers. I hope you all had a great day. Today Jesus was born and that my friends was a miracle right there!

"Merry Christmas to ALL!

It looks like everyone hit the jackpot over there. I'm so glad Ava was home and shared such a wonderful day with the family. God bless all of you.

I found your site from another and began reading. I too have a son who was born with a CDH. I am so sorry for what Ava has recently went through. As I was reading, I honestly got a little upset about the PICC line as well as the surgery itself, along with you. My son has had 5 repairs and the surgeons have never done an incision like that. The first time he reherniated they went back through the same incision. When I saw the pictures I was very sadden for Ava. I am so sorry that you all had to go through something like that, it must have been horrible (to say the least). I pray that she continues to heal and that her memory about the experience fades. She is a beautiful little girl.

I hope you guys had a wonderful Christmas and that you have a safe and Happy New Year!!!
