I love Christmas! It's my favorite holiday. I LOVE buying for the kids and tend to go a little overboard! This of course was Paige's first XMAS, so it was extra special. Hope you enjoy! Don't forget the comments!

Thanks Great Grandma!

The kids Great Grandma sent them a package of candy and a cute little snowman for Paige for XMAS. I promised I would post the pictures!

Plus, the bib is from Alisha's boyfriend, Mark. I promised that I would take a picture of her in it! See, I told you she used it! :)

The one with the food on her face is Paige's first time with a spoon! She did awesome and without her NAM!

Next week is the big day! Next Friday to be exact. It's bittersweet. While I don't want to have my sweet Paige go through surgery, I also thought this day would never come. They honestly say that parents have a hard time recognizing their babies after the surgery. I find that hard to believe but I guess we will see next week!

Today is one of those days that I know Prayer works! A few weeks ago, Dr. V stated that she did not think Paige would be able to have her gums fused at surgery. They just seemed too far apart. Dr. Grundwalt agreed and we were upset. But, we decided not to make a determination on postponing the surgery or going ahead with the intention of a bone graph in the future, until this week. So today, we went to our very last NAM adjustment. I told Dr. V that her cleft moved in the last 2 weeks. She said, "it sure did!" I asked her what she thought and she said, "with it that close, she could fuse it together. It's touching at the top BUT it's up to Dr. Grundwalt to decide if she thinks it will be okay!" I was so excited. That was NOT the response I thought we would get today. Not at all. So not only are we going ahead with the surgery BUT she might still have her gums fused. Now, this is completely up to Dr. Grundwalt to decide and we won't know for sure until the day of surgery but she still has a 1 week and 1/2 until surgery date. Her gums can still move a considerable amount in that time! So THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to EVERYONE who has been praying for Paige. Prayer works, God is good! Keep praying it moves more!

So I figured everyone would want to know as soon as we found out. :) I will be updating the blog with XMAS pics this week too. So don't forget to check that.

PLUS::::: On the day of surgery, I will be borrowing my sisters laptop. The hospital has wireless internet and I will be updating on Paige's surgery while we are there, WITH PICTURES! So be sure to check next friday in the evening for updates! I can hardly believe it's almost time!
