Thank You Mom's Group!

What a surprise! My fellow mother's from my Wednesday's Mom's Group at the Church, surprised Kate and I yesterday with a baby shower. It was one of the most lovely parties I have been to in a long time. The atmosphere was great, the food was heavenly and the company was even better. These women are a God sent blessing in my life.
Kathy, Crystal, Kate, Holly, Angie, Camie, Michelle and Jill: God has put you all in my life for so many reasons and I can't thank him enough for that. You have not only taught me more about myself but you have shown me ways to be a better Christian wife, mother, sister, daughter and friend. You all have such unique and special qualities and from the bottom of my heart, thank you for being a part of my life.
Blake and I had so much fun this morning going through all of the special things you all purchased for our new baby boy! Thank you from our entire family.

Here's to You Aaron!

"Welcome Home White Family, Welcome Home." as Ty Pennington says on Extreme Home Makeover.
We are happy to announce the homecoming of Aaron. It has been a long haul and I am so happy to have him back in the neighborhood. Thank you God and everyone who continuously prayed and supported our family through this difficult journey. God is Good and he has answered our prayers!!!! So here's to you Aaron, may we have many more great times together (like the one in the picture above taken last year in St. Thomas!)
This will be an experience our family will never forget. We have all grown so much through this difficult time. What doesn't kill us only makes us stronger. God has made us all a lot stronger.
Enjoy your Weekend!

"I'm a Big Boy Now!"

Blake says "Mumma... I am a big boy now!" Doug and I have been trying to finish up the boys rooms in the past few months and Blake is thrilled about the way his new room turned out. He has his big boy bed, table and chairs for crafting or conducting his train set, pictures of his famous finger paintings and all the books, puzzles, trucks and toys a boy could ever want. It is funny how excited he gets about having his own space. I don't know why the picture came out a little dark.

Baby's Room... Check!

Well it is official, the baby's room is complete. Now the only thing to do is to wait. Baby Moore #2 is due in 3 weeks and when he decides to show up we will be ready. Bed is up, blankets and clothes are hanging in the closet and our bags are packed. My grandpa and grandma just got this new Rocker/Glider for my birthday and I can't wait to rock this new baby! Please say a prayer for a safe and healthy delivery for the newest addition to the Moore Family!

He called me today!

Yes! It is true I spoke to Aaron on the phone today. They caped his treake and he is able to talk for a short time. I can't tell you how awesome it was to hear Aaron's voice again. He is doing so good, Doug, Ang and I were with him all day on Saturday and when we left Doug and I looked at eachother and said "Thank you God" he looks and feels really good. The best we have seen him yet. His skin is healing, his buzz cut actually looks good and his spirits are improving daily. We are praying that he will continue to heal and maybe he will be ready to come home soon. Thanks for stopping by, sorry my messages are short and sweet, but I have to take advantage of my minutes between chasing a 3yr old little boy. Mom will be back tonight, she has such an ability to bring you theupdates on Aaron and we thank God that she has been able to inform you all during this difficult time. Thanks mom... everyone appreciates your updates. So...you may have your job back! dana

Another Good Day!

Thank God for another good day! Doug and I are on are way to the hospital to see Aaron. Yesterday was the 3rd day in a row w/o a fever, he sat up in a chair for 4 hours and watched King Kong the movie with Ang. He got to take a shower and he is looking better everyday. The nurse was saying that there is a possibility that they may take the treake out by Monday. That would be great! Just wanted to give you all a quick update, hopefully we will bring you more good news tomarrow. Thanks for checking in, God Bless and thank you for your prayers. dana

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day to you all. Just wanted to give you all a quick update on Aaron from the last couple of days. Yesterday was a good day, the doctor's have located the infection that they have been looking for for the past week or so. It is a bacterial infection in his lungs. They started him on a new antibiotic yesterday and so far so good. Aaron got to sit up in a chair today and he and Angie watched a movie for Valentine's Day. Last night he filled out all of his Valentine's for Ang and the kids. Doug and I hed down tomarrow with all of the kids to spend the weekend. We are very excited to see Aaron. Aidan called and left Aaron a Valentine message today on the phone, he was so excited. Doug, Blake, Aidan and I had a relaxing Valentine's at home tonight, Blake and Aidan are all snuggled up in thier pajamas and getting ready for bed. Thank you for stopping by, hopefully there will be more good news to come! Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers, they mean the world to all of us and especially to Aaron's healing. dana

A Father's Love

I was reading mom's blog this morning and it put a smile on my face to see Aaron's picture with his girls. Aaron is one of the most loving, kind and gentle men I know. He gives so much of himself to his family. His pride and joy are his babies and he is such a great dad, he reminds me so much of our dad. We were so blessed to have such a loving father, he was a great role-model for all of us. Now Aaron is a role-model for Kyle and I. Kyle doesn't have children yet but I do and Aaron is a parent who inspires us to love our children as much as we were loved by our parents. Thank you Aaron for being such a great role-model for Kyle, Doug and I, we are better people and parents because of you.
We had Aidan the last couple of days and Blake and him had a ball. He is getting so big. The girls are great and Nana is having so much fun with them. Thank you to everyone that is helping take care of Aaron and Angie's babies. We are so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends. Thank You to all of you!

Happy Birthday Dad!

Happy Birthday Dad! Today is my dad's birthday he would have been 55 this year (I think). The last birthday I remember with him we went to one of his favorite resturants and ate dinner with all of our family. Today my prayer is that he with with my brother Aaron and letting him know that he is right there beside him cheering him on to recovery. Aaron has been in the hospital for 4 wks now and things were looking good... but know he has had a set back. I hope it is just a small bump in the road. (Please God let it just be a small bump in the road.) By the Grace of God our family is staying strong in faith and we know that Aaron can get through this. I just hope that dad has come to him in his sadation and given him some spiritual strength from above. Aaron is frustrated right now just as any of us would be and I pray that his faith will only grow deeper during this journey. God Bless all of you and thank you for all of the prayers. Everyone has done so much for Aaron and our family we can't thank you enough. Dana P.S. Blogger is not spell-checking today please excuse my mistakes. At least I can blame it on 8 months pregnant and tired! The baby is using my brain at the moment.
