Psalm 139:13-16

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

Happy 2013!

We had a good and busy holiday season, but Happy New Year!!!  I wanted to look back at some memorable moments from this past year and compare with pictures, so here it goes!
Christmas 2011 - 9 months old

Grace's 1st birthday!
October 2012 - 19 months old - 2 year anniversary of Grace's diagnosis - MIRACLE!!!!!

First day of school October 30, 2012
Christmas 2012 - 21 months old - what a difference a year makes!  This time last year, Grace couldn't even sit on her own.  Now she is crawling everywhere and exploring!  We praise You, God!

Just a quick recap of the past few weeks...we had Thanksgiving in Magee with Chad's family.  They are so fun and they adore Grace.  It was sad to have to celebrate without the patriarch of the family, Pawpaw Walker, but I know that he had a much greater celebration in Heaven!  We had many parties between Thanksgiving and Christmas, including Grace's school's Christmas pajama party, TLLH volunteer party to honor our amazing volunteers, our Sunday school Christmas party, etc.  Grace even went to see Santa with her friend Walker.  We celebrated Christmas with Chad's immediate family early and then celebrated with my family Christmas day.  This year was even more fun with Grace, and I imagine next year will be even better!  Grace's favorite gifts she received were her activity cube and her electronic books.  We celebrated New Year's Eve with Chad's family out at the cabin and then I worked New Year's Day.  It has been an amazing year full of joy and hope and miracles.  We praise You, God, our Father and Creator.  I know 2013 will be even better!  :)


  1. Happy New Year to your and your beautiful family! Wow- your girl sure has grown up in a year!

  2. It is always such a blessing to see miracles that God blesses us with. Your family is one of those miracles!! May He continue to bless you and keep you safe in 2013.♥♫
