earlier in the week we went to the park one last time before the cold hit. i know we'll be going during the colder months when it is warm, but i wanted to get out and let liam play. i love this shot of him swinging.

all is good!

after all that has happened this last 6 weeks, this quote says it all:

and how true it is!

i didn't know how much strength i had in me. the last 6 weeks made me see that i am strong. that i can have faith, believe and all will be ok. that i can survive. that all will be ok. i am stronger than i think. anxiety disorder doesn't let you think that. it makes you think you are weak. but i proved it wrong. i won. you have to be strong for your child. you can't let fear take over when they are air lifting him to another hospital 3 hours away to figure out why he is so sick. you have to be strong. even if you can't be there you have to be strong. strength isn't just for them it is for you also. you have to remain healthy and well to be there for them. you have to believe and have faith. you have to pray. you have to let others that know what they are doing take over while you sit and know that all will be ok. you can't do any of that if you don't have strength.

praise God that liam is healthy and strong today. yesterday he had his appointment with the surgeon and all is good! he is back to his old self and i could not be happier! he was a miracle when he was made. a miracle that entered our world on december 21st, 2009. god knew we needed him. i knew god would protect him. and now we move on. we put this behind us and know that god is in control and will be there with us to keep is strong!

recent layouts

i've done some scrapping in the last couple of weeks. here are the layouts i have done. nothing like scrap therapy! :)

hmmm, i thought i had done more lol. now i need to buy some more ink to print them off and put them in the album. i love digital. i don't know if i could ever go back to paper. i love all of the papers and elements too much to afford going back to paper. but who knows...maybe one day!

i love a parade!

we took liam to the homecoming parade this morning. i was totally excited! i haven't been to one in years. i love parades!! here he is on the way to the parade.

while we are waiting for the parade to start. it was pretty chilly out. about 45 when we went to the parade. warmed up some and then the wind started in. :(

he clapped at the bands and things he loved. he also waved the people that were waving to the crowd.

him and daddy.

he got some candy. some would put it on his tray. the little girl next to him would give him some of her's.

what i thought was pretty cool was that some of the football players that won't national championship in 1961 was there. that's awesome!

that's all! next parade is the christmas parade! burrrrrr.

the pumpking patch!

yesterday we took liam to the pumpkin patch. he's still a bit too young to enjoy it but he did love feeding the animals and the corn pit. here are some photos from yesterday.

"do you think those goats will eat my hand?" "i don't know. they look kinda funny to me."

"i'm this tall."

"no. no. no. i hate this corn."

"whoa...the corn is awesome. i was totally wrong about it."

"i think it may be time for a hair cut."

"next year i am going in. oh yes i am!"
