From the huge snow we were blessed with , to a wonderful day with my family, yesterday was glorious. EJ's party ended up being just us four as the roads were to dangerous for travelers to venture out. In was so nice though! One cake I made into cupcakes and "cookies" and the other was a traditional round cake. Needless to say we have more cake than we could ever want!
Easton had his doctors appt. yesterday and for the first time ever he had great numbers! He is no longer anemic and his albumin is normal. Even his ANC was up! I just cried and hugged the doctor. What a birthday present!
He does still have his cold and an ear infection, but the antibiotics should clear up his ear in no time. His two top teeth are almost through. I can not wait till they make their entrance! I am ready for a good nights sleep again!
EJ got some great new toys including a new walker. He has been pushing it around all over the place. I think he loves the new perspective! He makes me laugh so hard!
We have been enjoying the snow so much. This is the most snow we have ever gotten in Dallas, and it is the most I have ever seen in my life. We built the snowman and made snow angels. I simply adore the view from my windows. I know snow gets old, but I think it is so beautiful. Amazing how perfect the Artist is. From spring buds, summer blooms, fall leaves, and winter snow, His beauty is everywhere.
This birthday week could not get any better. I am blown away by my sweet family and I wouldn't change one thing!
This past Christmas Austin picked me out an ornamental cross and started my collection of crosses. Well yesterday he asked me if he could buy me another cross for my birthday today. I told him not this time (as we are saving all our money right now). This morning he was in his room for a while and came out and asked for tape. A little later he came out with a bag and told me to open it.
He had built me a beautiful cross out of legos, and even taped a clone soldier from his star wars collection to it to be Jesus. I cried so hard. The simple thought that all he wanted to do was give me a cross. He didn't have the money so he made one. I love that boy! Then Adam brought me home breakfast and starbucks. It has been just the most perfect day! Sometimes it really is the small stuff. Life doesn't always go the way we want, but there is still so much beauty and so much joy in the everyday things. How I am thankful for the small things!
Here are some pictures!!
And last but not least my angel making an angel!
