Yearly Update

Well, it's been about a year since I've updated this site. It's been a wonderful, challenging year. Mostly what I remember is Amelia screaming at us until we gave her food but there have been lots of other great things.

Mirabel and Amelia dressed up as Ariel and Flounder for Halloween, Mirabel turned 4 and let everyone within earshot know it. We went Christmas Tree shopping with Grandpa who moved back to Seattle from Texas.

This summer has been a whirlwind. Concerts, street fairs, camping, a trip to the emergency room (everyone's fine), tee-ball, outdoor movies with friends and more birthday parties than you can shake a stick at.

Two weeks from today Mirabel is scheduled for the third of the three heart surgeries we've been planning for since before she was born. As always, this site is where we will post updates on how she is doing, both the day of the surgery and the weeks following. We are thankful for your thoughts and prayers.

Obviously this is a serious issue but Mirabel has always been a trooper when it come to surgery so what we are mostly planning for is dealing with a bored 4 3/4 year old who can't get out of bed and a one year old that can't be at the hospital all the time and misses her big sister.

Many of you have offered help during this time and believe me when I say we won't be shy about asking. I'm not sure if the next year will be any less challenging but for now, at least Amelia can scream at us for food and say "please".

Now, keep scrolling below for the cute pictures of the girls.

Dave, Cristy, Mirabel and Amelia.
