CHRISTMAS EVE 2013--So many reasons to be thankful

The happy face of a little girl who has overcome so much. I am reminded daily of what a miracle it is to have her here, with us. There are still so many hills to climb. Grace and Mia leave for St. Jude's Children's Hospital (Tennessee) just after New Year's Day for another consultation. Hopefully, the decision will be that no further surgery is needed at this point and that the cyst has decided to simply go away.
Here is another shining photo of a very excited little one (Kaia) with her FIRST present of Christmas.

And Sam, trying to figure out his Mom's camera.... My oldest, James, and Cole are in the background. Jones had to stay home.

I just can't help's another one of Mia wearing just about everything that she could possibly put on her little body. She must have been really hot as it hit 81* here in "Sunny California"......... Ethan--the brilliant skater dude is in the background with Cole checking for crumbs....

Sending love and blessings to all.

Mary & Jones & Cole
