Christmas with my two little princesses

We had a beautiful Christmas with our two little princesses. Lady M and Baby G were so much fun and truly made the magic of Christmas alive in my heart this year. I am so grateful that we were able to spend the holidays in our own home with family and friends. It is important to T and I that we create Christmas memories in our own home. We use to spend half the day in a car traveling from place to place to see our loved ones but this year was just perfect! I hope that you had a beautiful holiday with your loved ones. Here are a few favorite moments that I caught with my new camera! What were some of your favorite holiday moments?

Our life...Fall Bliss

Despite all the scary moments we had with Lady M and her medical issues. We found several blissful moments that just took my breath away!

Lady M's Big Scare

Yet again my blog has been neglected. But in my defense, life has really thrown me some curve balls lately. I started back to work in the fall after having a great summer. I am working 4 days a week this year. I was nervous about the loss in salary for our family but luckily T's new job has ben wonderful and has off set my position being reduced to part time. I never once thought that working part time would be exactly what I needed but I have learned that sometimes our biggest challenges have a way of just working out as they should.

In late September, I began to realize just how fortunate my family really is. Our oldest daughter, Lady M, suddenly became very ill on a Friday evening. She started in with a cough that seemed to develop out of nowhere. She coughed all night long like I have never heard her cough before. She then developed a high fever and then showed signs of a urinary track infection. We made several trips to the doctor's office within a weeks time before we realized that she had bacteria pneumonia. The pneumonia then attacked her kidneys. To make a long story short my poor baby gained 5 lbs in less than a week and was spilling large amounts of blood and protein in her urine. She ended up at a children's hospital in VT. One we arrived there we began consulting with a specialist to try to determine if her kidney issues were all part of the pneumonia infection or a more serious disease. While we were there her blood pressure began to rise and she continued to retain fluid. She was put on several medications to control the blood pressure and treat the pneumonia. Luckily we were able to get things manageable and return home within a few days. We had to follow a strict diet and she has weekly doctor appointments to monitor her blood pressure and weight. It's been six weeks since the entire ordeal and Lady M continues to be monitored and her test results are improving. We feel fairly confident that all her kidney issues were related to the pneumonia. My husband and I were out of our minds with fear. I am so amazed how strong Lady M was through out the entire time. We are just so very thankful that we are able to be at home as a family and that we survived such a scary ordeal.

Here are some pictures of our sweet girl while she was sick.I still can't get over the weight she put on :( She always kept smiling!

This was taken the day we found out we were going home!

Uncle B is getting married...in Austria! What can I send?

My Brother is getting married in 10 days. I won't be able to attend because the wedding is in Austria. My other Brother will be flying over to attend the ceremony and I am hoping to send a wedding gift over with him. I have no idea what to get the happy couple. They have not registered and are just having a brief ceremony in Austria. They will be getting married here in the US sometime next year. I would still would like to send a gift to my Brother and future sister in law to let them know that I am there in spirit on their special day. Does anyone have any creative ideas?
