GOD is SO Good!

Today we received GREAT news from J's oncologist. As most of you know, Justin receives an MRI every other month to check for any new growth in his brain. Well, today's MRI showed that not only had J's tumor not grown(it has shrunk to the size on an ink speck since surgery, radiation and two years of chemo) but it wasn't even visible! No visible tumor on his brain scan. Did you hear that? NO VISIBLE TUMOR!

For those of you who continue to pray for J, my Sis, and the boys, THANK YOU. Please continue to keep them in your hearts and prayers as J continues to fight and BEAT this disease. He has a long journey ahead, but I know with continued prayer and support, anything is possible!

I love you J! More than you possibly know.

Happy Halloween

Halloween was super fun this year and SO different from last year. A year ago, our sweet girl was just a little be. Well. . . . a little ladybug to be exact. She wasn't really aware of what was going on and certainly wasn't the go, go go, girl she is now!

Here she is last year.

This year, Ella was one of the cutest little flowers I have ever seen! She wasn't very excited to get her costume on, but was definitely excited to go see her bestest friend Donovan for some trick-or-treating fun.

Dono and Ella played a bit before it was time for him to get dressed in the CUTEST little Elmo costume. I wish I had my camera when Dustin brought it out. Ella was in love. She LOVES Elmo and thought it was pretty awesome to have him right there in front of her. It was so funny to see! 

I mean seriously, how cute is he?

On our way out I wanted to get a cute picture of Ella, but it's just so hard. I tried!

Meg and Dustin's neighborhood was definitely in the holiday spirit. Most houses were beautifully decorated and everyone was out and about celebrating. Ella LOVES watching kids, so you can imagine how excited she was to see all the excitement. I bought her and Donovan a sucker and boy did she hold on tight to hers (and Dono's) all night. She was in heaven!

Here she is at her first house. I told Jose to keep a close eye on her because she'd probably walk right in to the house. This was so fun to see and she had a blast.

Elmo and flower girl were pretty tuckered out once we returned home. But boy did they have fun. 

Thanks for a super fun night Megs, Dustin, and Donovan. I hope this will be a fun Halloween tradition for years to come. Until next year . . . . .
