Slight Change of Plans

While we will be celebrating today, and certainly continue to invite everyone to celebrate with us, we do have a slight change of plans...

Tricia is having a minor bit of surgery done this morning (at 9am) and will need to stay tonight in the hospital, which means we'll delay some of the partying until tomorrow.

But, that also means that we have one more surprise for everyone (on top of the other fun surprises we have planned)...it is something that has been 365 days coming...

Anyway, I promise to post again today, and I guarantee that pug pics and a sweet video are on their way at some point, even if a little late.

Thanks so much for the thousands of people who are celebrating Pink and Brown Day with us today! If you haven't yet, Click Here to join the Facebook Event!!! Be sure to show us a pic of you in your Pink and/or Brown!!!

And, don't forget to leave a birthday note for Gwyneth in the post below!!!

Thanks!

Nate

Praying for Tricia today.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GWYNETH - You are a miracle that your Mommy and Daddy have very generously shared with us. I always think the child's birthday is kind of like a birthday for the Mommy too - so happy Birth Day Tricia too! Hope you have time to have fun later on or this week! We continue to pray for your beautiful family.

De-lurking today to say a big Happy Birthday to your little miracle. I have been following your story all year. I was cold this morning when I woke up and put my brown warm up suit over the pink shirt I was wearing. What a funny coincidence! I might just wear it all day now!

Praying for Tricia and hope you can get back into party mode soon!

Happy Birthday little Gwyneth! You and your mom and dad are such an encouragement and I have never even met you. I have, however, prayed for you often and will keep on. Cannot wait to continue reading about what God has planned for all of you.

Tricia, praying for your surgery today.

Gwyneth, can it truly be a year since you were born? Sweeet Gwyneth Rose; you may be small in size, but you and your parents have been a mighty example of God's miracles in this century. Today, I thank God for the miracle of your life and for blessing me with the opportunity to pray for you and your parents.

Love to you,

Caroline

Rebecca said...

I was so excited earlier this week to read about pink and brown day. Of course, with the hustle and bustle of everyday life, I hate to admit, but I forgot this morning when selecting my outfit. Funny thing is - and I don't usually do this - I didn't like the first or second outfit I picked and went back to my closet for another try. And what did I pick but a pink sweater (that I haven't worn since last winter) and brown pants. I just did my daily check of your blog and realized today was the day - and I - entirely by chance (or divine intervention - hmmmm) am wearing brown and pink!! Celebrating your many blessings today!!

aprilmoonflower said...

Heal fast Tricia. Bummer you have to be in the hospital today but also ironic too. gah! I know you and your family will be a shining light no matter where you are. and it really only matters that you all are here in one piece in the grand scheme. So far you all have come. AMAZING!

Jen said...
