Christmas Party

Last Saturday, Children's Craniofacial Association hosted a Christmas party. It was a blast! They had it at South Fork ranch. Radio Disney was there as well as Santa, a Caricature artist, Plano Fire Department and lots of other things to do.

It struck me that this was one of the few places where many of these kids, were "normal" or in the majority. Where more of the kids had a condition than didn't. Craniofacial covers many different areas and Jack is lucky because he doesn't have any noticeable effects of his condition (except the helmet of course.) We are blessed because he is likely done with his condition, but many of the children have a lifetime of struggle.

I spoke with one mom whose son had a cleft pallet. He was two and had had two surgeries with probably five more to go! Her comment was I can't imagine having my son having such a serious surgery. My comment was I can't imagine my son having so many surgeries. No matter what both families are blessed to have such great doctors.

We also won tickets to the Ft. Worth Zoo. That will be Fun!

This is Claire... Kerre met her Mommy on ... She's grown so much since we saw her last! What a cutie...

Here's Jack making a new friend!

Helmets Rock!

Here you go, Brian! As Promised...

For those of you that need "the story" Jack was absolutely enamored by Brian's helmet on Halloween. I think he was happy and excited that someone else was wearing one too for a change. So this pic is in honor of Jack's helmet buddy.

Brian, I'm sure you have some creative by-line!

That's me...

... I'm Mama!!! It doesn't matter that he doesn't know what it means yet... when you hear this come out of your baby's mouth your heart skips a beat, a little tear finds it's way to your eye as the world stops turning and everything fades away and is replaced by pure bliss!!

we're working on Dada!! It's close...

Our Lil' Guitar Heros...

Jack loves music and can't get enough of Sandi and Uncle David's guitars... he wants to touch them and bang them and strum them... I'm praying this is an instinctual love for music that he carries with him for life.

Sandi posted some great pics of Jack on her blog and I'm stealing them!! I'm adding some of her little toot too though, from many moons ago! These will be in the cover art of their fist album if I have any say at all...

(so the weirdest thing about these pictures is that PJ and Jack are wearing the same pants... gotta love the hand-me-downs)
