I have to go back in time a little bit and show how cute MM was in her Halloween costume! October 31 is a VERY special day for us because it was the day MM got to come home from the hospital! She wasn't supposed to even be born until November 30, but she decided to come on September 19. After a 6 week stay in NICU, we got to bring her home. She is a living, breathing miracle. I can't begin to explain how much of a growing experience this was. It has forever changed who I am, and how I view everything! God kept His hand on her the whole time and and gave me strength I never thought possible. People we didn't even know were praying for us!

What a difference a year makes!

Most of you know Mary Martin was a preemie. Last Thanksgiving she was 9 weeks old, and weighed 5 pounds! As you can see she has really done some catching up. She is trying to walk, she can say 8 words (4 of which can only be understood by her parents and grandparents) and she is just hilarious. I made her picture last year by these little Indian figurines so I could compare her size to this year. I didn't get a picture, but she was throwing those things all over the place! Here we are this year having Thanksgiving at 'the farm' with GR's family. I had so much to be thankful for this year!

Finally taking the plunge!

I'm finally taking the plunge into the blogging world! I have so much fun looking at my friends' blogs, that I decided we needed one!
