Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone; but, still miraculously, my own.
Never forget, for a single minute you didn't grow under my heart, but in it.

Hallelujah Day

I wanted to share some pictures with yall from Noah's Hallelujah Day Festivities :) I am missing Jeremiah alot today and have not gotten update pics in a while. I wanted to make this Fall Decoration to hang in my house and I did not have an October Picture of Jeremiah this year so I used the one of him last year at the end of October. And Noah's picture is this October. Wow, last year at this time Noah had only been home a little over a month! Anyway, thought I would share this with yall :) And I will edit it when I finally get pics of Jeremiah this October :) I will show you the new one when it gets here :) so what do you think??

What else would Noah be! :) Every time anyone asked him if he was Elmo he would point at his head! heehee

This was the Holy Ghost Weenie Roast at Church. They made a bonfire in the Gym. It was just like a real fire but instead of fire the wood had orange christmas lights through it :)

I think Noah was confused by everyone dressed funny :)

eatin his supper with his friends from his Sunday School Class!

just thought this was a cute shot of him lookin at me!

more of him with his class

Aren't they all so cute :)

This shot is PRICELESS to me! He is drinking out of a regular cup! The fact he wore more than made it to his tummy is beside the point! :) They gave him Sprite! He loved it!

Watchin all the kids

Noah and Millie :)

This candy bucket will have a life way beyond this week. Noah LOVES buckets. He has carried an easter bucket around and put toys in , carry across the room, take toys out and back and forth. The handle broke off last week. So I have a feeling Elmo has work to do now! :) heehee

Playing Games at Fall Fest at friends Church :)

Thought this shot of him getting up was cute :)

Can you tell he is grinning BIG! :)

He was so cute when they would let him get candy. From the beginning he would just take 1. Noone told him to do that, he just did it! Bobby and I thought that was so sweet. Then he played a game where you got points for how you did. He got 2 points so they told him to get 2 candies. From that game on at every place he would take 2! lol :)

He loved this little slide thing. He did this about a zillion and one times!

His therapist would be so proud at how he crawled through this tube! :) Work those arms little buddy! :)

Celeste the Zebra and Millie the convict :) It was cute. I joked on facebook that I was headed out with Elmo, a Zebra, and a convict, and it was a good thing I had State Police with me! heehee For those that don't know, Bobby works for State Police :)

Getting our face painted! They has the neatest thing. They were paint pencils. He actually let her do it. I was shocked :) She asked what he liked and we said a Ball. She misunderstood! heehee

course to him it was still a ball! lol :)

doing the cupcake walk! :) He won once and thought that was neat :)

Me and my Baby girl! :)

Millie with Daddy and Noah :)

me and my Binky Boo!

Playing ball! :) Daddy is SOOOO PROUD!

eating on Daddy's lap :)

lol, can you see Panda Boy is getting tired?

ok, thats a little better :) just about got all that food in :)

I just love shots of him drinkin out of his cup. I don't know why! :) look at the tired eyes!

Hugging Poppy today :) Poppy is a fireman! He gave us the heads up that the fire trucks would be at the shopping center up the road from our house and giving out candy to kids and they could climb on the "FIE TUCKS" heehee So of course I took Noah and FORGOT the camera! ugggh! He woudl not get in the trucks but boy did he love seeign them!!!!! :)

Hugging Nanny Beth but it was so quick it is over already before camera got it.

Eating triscuits on Nanny Beth's couch! :) so cute :)
My mom, Nannie Carol came home from rehab today :) She was in hospital and then rehab following her hip replacement. She is doing well and got to leave rehab early :) She says she feels better than before her surgery! She is safely sleeping as is Noah and the 4 kiddos we are babysitting tonight for funds for The Jeremiah Fund! :) Seems very peaceful in my house right now :)
I am praying hard for Jeremiah and searching for grant possibilities that may have funding. Praying for cosigners, my fundraisers, you name it! It seems so strange to me that money stands in the way of our son coming home to his family. I KNOW God can use this to teach me. I know that God can use this to touch people. I look at Noah sleeping so peacefully at HOME and I REMEMBER that God bridged the ocean to bring him home! My Father owns the cattle on a thousand hills, this money is NOTHING to Him! :) I feel so honored that He gave me Noah and now our Jeremiah! It is so sweet how Noah is so in love with Jeremiah and carries his picture around and kisses him on the computer :) I can't wait to experience raising these 2 angels together :)

Thanks all for praying :)
Jeremiah sweet frogie boy. I send you my kisses in the wind this night and some big bear hugs too! As I sit here unable to sleep as I think of you I wonder what you are doing, feeling, thinking, are you cold, hungry, needing to be held and rocked, just to feel the love of arms around you...I so long to do that for you baby boy. Hold on and I will be there as soon as I can!

What a sweet little Elmo! Noah and Jeremiah look so much alike in that first picture you posted. Hope Jeremiah gets to come home soon :)

If William had his way, he'd choose to be Elmo, too. What a cute monster Noah makes. He does the Red Furry One proud.

As always, your faith is admirable and inspirational. Keep believing.

Lisa said...

OH, that is one CUTE as can be furry Elmo! He looks so delighted and proud in all the pics!

Tyler would have been like glue to your Elmo...such is his adoration of the red fur! LOL

As always keeping you all in our thoughts & prayers...your photo of the boys together is wonderful!!

Kisses in the Wind

I hold you in my heart and touch you in my dreams.
You are here each day with me, at least that's how it seems.

I know you wonder where we are... what's taking us so long.
But remember child, I love you so and God will keep you strong.

Now go outside and feel the breeze and let it touch your skin...Because tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God hold you in His hand until I can be with you.
I promise you, my darling, I'm doing all that I can do.

Very soon, you'll have a family for real, not just pretend.But for tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God wrap you in His arms and hold you very tight.
And let the angels bring the kisses that I sent to you each night.

When Love Takes You In!
