Oh My Goodness, Oh My Stars..Connor's Turned Into A Bag of Spuds!!!!!!!


Can you believe it??????? After so many months of worrying that Little Bug would never gain any weight, we have a 20lb "Bug Spud" on our hands!!!!!!!!!! Yep, that's right, 20 whopping pounds!!!! Our Little Bug Spud is quite a lug now!!! I guess we're going to have to put him on Slim Fast, right???? Oh, maybe it would help if I tappered off the Egg Nog for a while, huh??? HA HA!! Today when Connor got his synagist shot (for RSV) his pediatrician couldn't believe how GREAT he looked!!! We have to agree, he is much cuter than these two bags of spuds but just as heavy!!!! We are all busy getting ready for Little Bug Spud's 1st Christmas and we couldn't be happier that we are all at home and we are ALL healthy and able to spend this special time of year with all of our families!!!! As you go about the last minute details to your Christmas celebrations, please don't forget to say prayers for all of those children who are ill and in the hospital. Our hearts truly go out to all the kiddo's at Children's Hospital and to their families. May greater health be known by all in this miracle season. Please say special prayers for our pal Casey. He was discharged on the 15th to go back home to Idaho, but was life-flighted back to Children's yesterday. We are awaiting word on his condition, but please pray!!!

Lovebug Hugs,
Lori

You are so creative!!!! a bag of spuds in comparison to our sweet littlebug. I can't wait to devour our little spud. Two more days and counting till I get him in my arms, YEAH.... We will definately say extra prayer for all the little ones at Childrens, and special prayers for Casey. It's hard to be in the Hospital, but at Christmas time it must be so depressing. We are so thankful that Connor is doing so good and he will be able to celebrate his first Christmas with all of us. He has spent many first's in the Hospital so this is a time of great rejoicing for Connor's good health and also for the real reason we celebrate Christmas, the birth of Jesus.

Thank you Jesus for what you have done in Connor's life and what you will continue to do on his behalf. We pray right now for all the sick children everywhere in the world and for all the people less fortunate. We pray that the lost in the world would somehow find there way to your saving grace. Lord, let us be the light to the world and that we can share your love at this special season of the year, Amen.

See you Sunday, Lots of Love Aunt Kathy

Dear Lori,

You never cease to amaze me! You have got to be the strongest woman of faith I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Your strength in the most adverse times is truly inspiring. I can only hope that I would handle myself with such grace as you have shown this last year. I know that there have been times that have been soooo hard for you but you rose up and forged ahead. You truly are the kind of wife, mother and woman I aspire to be! God bless you Lori.

I pray for God's blessings on you, Randy and of course Little Bug and Itty Bitty Bug in the new year.

I went directly to the site and we just smiled at all his little precious pictures. Anyway thought Id share that with you.
