Thanksgiving 2014

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and managed to grab a couple quick snaps of our fam.  For some reason, watching L on Thanksgiving gives me such joy, more so than almost any other holiday.  She loves playing with family, eating like a maniac, and it feels so peaceful.

Recent conversation in our house

This past month has had this recurring conversation.

Hubs, checking on L before bedtime:  L, what are you doing?  You must sit down to go pee.  
L: No no no.
Hubs: Sigh.

I think L spent a bit too much time accompanying her cousin, (the same age but a boy) to the bathroom last month.

Tea Cup

We took a mini getaway to Williamsburg to take L to Busch Gardens.  We've realized over the past year or so that she is a complete thrill seeker.  She loved the rides at our county fair, even riding them by herself.

She loved, loved, loved this trip.  Proof is in the video.  Enjoy!

Photos from Flashes of Hope

Several months ago, I received an email from the child life team at L's transplant hospital informing me that Flashes of Hope was going to be at the hospital and asking whether I wanted a time slot for L.  I immediately looked into the organization and was so excited to take advantage of such a wonderful opportunity.  The organization provides free photo packages for children living with chronic illnesses.  I will never turn down an opportunity to have pictures of my girl.  I don't think we'll ever look back and say, we took too many pictures.

So here are some of our favorites.  We just picked them up last week.  The organization provides an envelope with all of the photos in 5x7, and two 8x10s, along with a cd of all of the photos.  How amazing is that?  And because L was being shy, I even got a photo with my girl.
