Colton watching....

his video from Santa!  The video was REALLY cute and watching him is even cuter:)  He was really excited.  The video is long, kind of him just sitting there, but I love the expressions on his face:)

Lighting the Night!

This is Eli and Abe!  Two precious boys with a mom that is very sick.

The parade was unbelievable!  It was fun, but bittersweet!

Sweet Eli, he was wide open and excited!

Rod said there were at least 40 golf carts.

This is our golf cart.  If you can see little feet climbing in the golf cart, those are Eli's.  Colton, Timothy and Abe were sitting on the back.  Eli was EXCITED!!!!!!

It was an amazing event and the neighborhood all came out.  There was a spaghetti dinner after the parade, everyone put luminaries out.  It seemed like those that did not participate, stood in their yard and watched.  It was an amazing event!  I felt honored that Eli and Abe rode with us.  Eli doesn't feel comfortable with most people, but boy, he doesn't have a problem with me!  I had to stay on my toes with him the entire time.  He was a little excited and had a difficult time staying still!  And on the other hand, Colton was very calm:)  I think he knew I had my hands full!!!!

PRAY for a miracle!!!!

Oh how my heart aches....

I have shared with some of my "followers" :) the horrible circumstances a young family that lives in my neighborhood is going through.  I teach their son as well.  He is a precious child.  The community I live in is amazing.  This family has not lived here very long, do not know many people, but the people have done amazing things to help this family.  I am excited about the event tomorrow night because Eli and Abe are going to ride with us on our golf cart.  I was at their house last night for a few minutes and when I layed my head down, I cried myself to sleep.  This beautiful mom might not get to see her precious boys turn 8 like I just got to do with Colton.  These two precious boys are in a house with a mom that is VERY sick!!!  Extremely sick!  She has no hair, lost her vision, and I could go on and on!!!

It kind of puts it in perspective for the rest of us, doesn't it??

We have nothing to be depressed about, when you can consider what some people are going through. 

Please pray for Jeremy, Ashley, my precious Eli, Abe and the rest of their family.  It is SOOO, SOOO sad!!!
