It's been a very eventful year... celebrated Matilda's 1st birthday... welcomed our Mora home after 3 days on the road... found out that Matilda will become a big sister... said goodbye to Grandma Mildred... welcomed 3 darling nieces/cousins... and purchased our 1st home as a family. After reflecting on this past year, Nate and I couldn't stop thinking about how thankful we are for all we have and it's becoming more clear to us what is really most important in life.
Wishing you all a very happy and HEALTHY 2011. We are especially sending many positive thoughts to Matilda's newest cousin Sahale and her buddy Oliver. They're both little fighters and wishing them tons of hope and health.
Little Sahale is expected to have open heart surgery in a couple of months (needs to
gain weight and strength). Sending her all our love and we know she will do just great!
Here she is pictured just a couple of days old:
And many well wishes go out to our little buddy OW. You can read about his story here: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/owp
Our hearts go out to his parents and know that he will beat this.
Here's a picture of him at Matilda's birthday party:
Hoping that all our families and friends have an amazing 2011!
