halloween 2015

I know it's been forever since I posted, but wanted to post our Halloween pics and let you know that we are all doing well. Jonah remains stable and infection free, which is more than we can ask for. He has his daily struggles and with his medical needs and Gideon's being, you know, three, life is not easy, but it's good. It's a hard season, but when we have days like today (zoo and then trick-or-treating), I realize that I really will miss these years when they are so captivated by wonder. I love that they feel everything big! (And I also really love it when they go to bed.)

Can you even stand his Spidey cuteness???




I feel safer already.






"But but but I don' wan' put my mas' back on."


I mean... I feel like this one could be in a magazine. 









Dress rehearsal at our house with Dad before heading out for the real thing.



READY!


My mom went with us trick or treating and it was so fun. I forgot to grab her pic with both boys, but got this one while Gid was in the bathtub. Jonah couldn't wait to share his reading skills with Nana. His favorite books are the Elephant and Piggie books by Mo Willems and he just giggles and giggles as he does the voices, intonations, and expressions. And isn't Nana lucky? How many people can say they've been read to by CAPTAIN AMERICA???



The new neighborhood has LOTS of trick-or-treaters. They started at 6 and when I turned off the light at 8:30 (just because our boys were exhausted and needed to go to bed), we were at 87. I'm sure we would have had 100 or more if I had kept the light on till 9. It was a fun day.

And look how they're growing!

you don't know me from Adam's house cat, but I have followed your story since you started keeping a blog. You have a wonderful testimony and I have loved getting to know Jonah and your family. Thanks for sharing your family with us. Good to "see" you again

Love these! They're adorable! Love the ones where Jonah's reading to his Nana. ❤️ I still remember bringing my first Sally, Dick and Jane home and making my Mimi listen to me read my first whole book independently. Precious memory. Now, I teach kindergarten where I get to hear 20 little peeps learning to read and see the pride and excitement on their faces when they read a whole book on their own for the first time. So awesome to pass a love of reading to another generation. 😊

I wanted to stop in and let you know I am thinking of you along with Anton and his family. I came to know Anton when you first posted about him needing a family years ago. I know how much you love this little boy as well as his family. Please know I'm praying for you too. God bless you Patrice, may God wrap you in his loving embrace and give you comfort and peace.
