Hello....

Long time no blog!  One of my New Years Resolutions is to blog at least once a week.  Believe it or not I use this blog to track Ethan's Medical History, we are in the process of getting ready for our first trip to the National Institute of Health in a couple of weeks.  Ethan has been accepted into the Undiagnosed Disease Program.  I have had to gather a ton of info and was able to pull a lot of it from my entries. 

My family from out of state also likes to read our blog and catch up on all the kiddos!  Here is recap of the Fall/Winter of 2011:

Jake - started 5th grade, played a fun season of football,was an Usher at my Little Sister's Wedding, Celebrated his 11th Birthday was his 2 Best Friends and Dad by going out for wings and go carting because he informed us that he is just too old for a birthday party, took his first communion and is almost as tall as me....






Gracie - started 3rd grade, was an amazing Rebel's Cheerleader,was a Junior Bridesmaid at my Little Sister's Wedding, Celebrated her 9th Birthday by having a Spa Sleepover with 13 girls, played Mary in the Christmas Eve Pageant at Church and has the most giving and loving heart of anyone I have ever met.








Anna Claire - started Pre-K, started taking Gymnastics (which she LOVES), went to her first Nascar race with her Bestie, got her first Pedicure, was a flower girl at my Little Sister's Wedding, Celebrated her 5th Birthday by having a triple birthday party with her 2 Besties and has a sassy and silly style all of her own!







Ethan- started Preschool, turned 3, continues to Love his Romp n Roll Classes, has started communicating with  more words, walking all over the place with and without his walker, took his first tractor ride and was not afraid of the loud  noise (big huge step for him) and continues to amaze us every day!









It's been an amazing year filled with tons of love and great accomplishment.  Here's hoping 2012 is even better!
