This Week

With our Great Strides Walk this Saturday and the side effects of Tricia's chemo probably kicking in sometime in the next few days, this week should be our last crazy week of the summer. I'm thankful that I made the decision to give the organization/leadership responsibilities of the walk over to others this year (and they're doing a great job!) so that my involvement with the walk has been minimal. We're praying that Tricia will feel well enough to attend and that the weather will be perfect so that Gwyneth can come as well.

We have picked a winner for the t-shirt contest, which will be announced later in the week. Thanks to those who participated!

The Wedding Day Photography Package Auction ends in a few days, and it appears that nobody has even bid yet, which means somebody could walk away with a great deal! Don't forget to check it out!

And, Gwyneth Rose is 8 months old today! Look for pug pics later!


Thanks!

Nate

Happy eight month birthday, Gwyneth!

You have been through a lot in your short life, but you have won the hearts of so many as we have watched your family's struggles and amazing progress. You are very blessed with the love of God, family, and friends. Many people – like me - who do not know you or your parents personally, have become invested in praying for you and keeping up with your daily progress. What a wonderful thing it is to be part of the family of Christ! I pray that you will serve Him all of your life.

Looking forward to the pug pictures. I miss those!

I am thrilled that Gwyneth is doing so beautifully! That age where they have all that personality, sleep through the night, and stay where you put them is MAGIC!!!

I wanted to answer your One Year question--I started reading about a month after Gwyneth was born, and stayed on the edge of my seat until Tricia was released from the hospital. I LOVED the April Fools joke, and the photos are SO fun. I now take "crooked" pictures in your honor.

Blessings to all of you!

Gwyneth looks exactly like Tricia! Beautiful!

Rebecca said...

I thought about Gwyneth's 8 month birthday this morning while I was getting ready for work... and also thought about Tricia, wondering how she was feeling after her latest round of chemo...

I'll keep praying.

Beverly said...

Happy birthday, Gwyneth! You are beautiful.

Emmie said...

She is beautiful! Just like her Mommy! And I can see both of you in her face, its quite amazing xxxx

william said...

Happy 8 month birthday! I think she's starting to look like her Mum! She still looks a lot like Daddy though. :)

I'd love to bid on her auction but the starting price is already higher than we could afford. We're in England anyway lol... I hope someone with that large of a photo budget bids on it! (I'm thinking in the US people must spend more on weddings lol)

WannaseeJesus said...

aw man, I'm getting married in November. But I already have my photographer. And the starting bid is $1000... :-/

Hopefully someone will take this offer though!!!!!!!!

debangel said...

twin power mommy said...

Her little face is getting plumper!
Can't wait to see those pug comparisons!
