(okay, he IS heavy...but I still love him)
I never thought I would see this day.
The day where Ben would be really hard to move around.
It's here and it makes me sad.
He's now 50lbs.
I can still lift him, but it's hard.
Most days I rely on my big, beefy husband.
Other days I muscle down and do it.
Today we had A-TECH come out.
They did an evaluation on our home.
We are looking at getting a lift and track system,
and most likely an elevator,
to move him from place to place and floor to floor
Thankfully there is funding out there to help us with it.
We are hoping to get the ramp system done at the same time.
Great will be the day when our home is officially

Here is Ben's beautifully deep tub.
He misses it.
James taught that true Christianity requires a life of righteous works and service. The test of being a follower of Jesus is in daily righteousness and acts of kindness. James taught that such acts are evidence of our faith in Jesus Christ.

Here are the sacrificial reindeer (is that sacrilegious to say?). I got them 75% off at the store the day before. Can we say BARGAIN? We used three of these...
Um...did I mention my husband was in charge of the fondue-ing? I'm SO glad that he made sure the pot was CLEAN before throwing the reindeer in. (sheesh - that's embarrassing)
He did do a fantastic job cutting up the fruit though.
Only a few kids got stabbed, especially as we got down to the last couple of strawberries. They were the HOT items of the night.
Mmmmmm...marshmellow and chocolate. Could it be any sweeter? I submit that it CANNOT! Thanks Z and A...it was a hit.
