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.

Party and Visit (TONS OF PICS)

Thought I would share a few pics of the last few days.  We had Bobby's Troop Christmas party at the bowling ally that had me in tears.  Apparently the ELF that was being Santa is not special needs friendly :(  and neither are Bobby's coworkers.  I am DEALING with emotions on so much lately...BUT we had yummy food and Jeremaih bowled for the first time and Noah loved bowling again.  I have a few pics from my phone and Celeste took some with her camera but I dont have those yet.  There were soe on her camera of Bobby holding Jeremiah in front of Santa, but Santa did not offer to hold him like he did EVERY other child there, and when Santa walked around he spoke to all kids and babies, but not Jeremiah :(   anyway,

We also visitied Bobby's older sister and her hubby yesterday for a Christmas visit.  Noah calls them Nannie Beth and Poppy and it was quite fun.  Tuesday we took homemade goodies up to the PICU and PEDS units Jeremiah was on when he came home and goodies and gifts to the boys therapists at the hospital and Noah's girlfriend!  LOL  He just really loves this one therapis that is not even a therapist of either of the boys!  She put him to work one day helping her clean up a room and put things away and he has just adored her since!  :)  he gave her a heart shape pillow that said Mad 4 u!  LOL  Anyway, here are pics of recent Sisemore Christmas Season fun...
Enjoying the sounds and smells of the bowling ally

Noah looks HUGE in this outfit that is too big for him :)

the shirt says save time, SKIP my sister!  LOL

off he goes to bowl his turn :)

such a big boy

FIRST time bowling!  This ramp thing did not work so well, when we went to eat, someone took it, so we asked for another and liked the metal one better, Jeremaih could face front and the wheel chair went under that one and it worked so much better :)

blowing to cool it off :)
don't remember what he is reacting to but so cute :)

takin a turn with the other rack :)

Bowling is HARD work!  LOL  he fell asleep and did not finish his game!

can you see Noah's hands CLENCHING Bobby's neck??  HE had a FIT!  So did NOT want to go to Santa after watching soo many kids sit on his lap, He wanted no part of it.

Finally Daddy got him to take the gift from Santa

YAY all done, get me away from that dude!  LOL

you can see he is still a bit nervous sitting on the floor to open his gift.

Nannie Beth Lovin on Jeremiah :)  He was pretty alert this visit and she was eating it up :)

Noah huggin the CAT before Nannie Beth :)

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!
