Merry Christmas to you all!

This year has crept along, yet flown by all at the same time.  I can't believe that I am saying Happy Holidays to you all already!  Seems like we just decided to begin fundraising for Lila, her treatments, and therapies, all of which are not covered by insurance.

Lila did not take off her scarf, or drop her candy canes all morning, and this wagon was the hit of the day :-)
Our day today has been wonderful!  For the first year, Lila was full of excitement (thanks to Nora), they laughed a ton, played together more than ever, and both took naps :-)  Couldn't have been better :-)  We hope you all had as great of a day with your families and friends.
Last night while Santa stopped by Ty and Soupha's house!
Last night we went to Ty and Soupha's house (great friends of ours), and had the best time with all of the kids!  Santa decided to pop in while on route to all of the other kids houses for Christmas Eve :-)  Lila got right up onto his lap, but Nora still was unsure about this crazy guy with all of this white hair!  She kindly shook his hand...we'll take it.  I don't know if it is the ages of the girls right now, but this was the least stressful holiday to date!  We had our fair share of coffee this morning, had a relaxing night yesterday with friends, and have truly enjoyed being together during this holiday season :-)  Love it!

On our way to see Annie at the theater a few weeks ago
We want to say Happy Holidays to you all, and thank you for ALL of your support!  We could not have done it without each and every one of you!  Lila's life is truly changed FOREVER!!!!  Her processing has sped up significantly, she now has new forearm crutches that will accommodate her most recent growth spurt, while her focus on balance and coordination has grown tremendously as well :-)  This is all due to your generosity, love, and support...and I don't mean this only in the monetary sense.  The love, compassion, excitement, tears, laughter, and genuine hugs that we have received over this past year have been insurmountable, for which without we could not have kept so positive.  THANK YOU!!!!

(I am working on one final post for the year, including a financial all will be blown away!!!  Stay tuned)
