and were all caught up :)

Oma came to visit!!!!!! Yay!!! Wish she were here again. :)
Opa came too but he's too skinny for you to see in the picture.

Silas celebrated his first Thanksgiving!! Here he is playing with some mashed potatoes.

He did not want them to get away :) It was all business from here on out. Turkey, stuffing, ham, green beans, rolls. The boy ate and ate. I didnt get any more pictures because if I stopped feeding him for a healf second he squawked at me.

An adorable puppet show put on by cousins.

When we go to Aunt Jo's house we ride something... well mostly. :) He-he that was a reminder to you Cody

YA Let's go! The jeep had no power so there was no moving and no danger

We can fly too!

Silas' first Thanksgiving round 2 (theres another couple of pics I cant get to upload- will try again tomorrow.)

Picking out our Christmas tree- I wanted this one.

We ended up with this one. :)


What is this? I tried to eat it and it bit me.

Church Nursery :) They would both laugh hysterically at each other for no apparent reason. Too funny.

Silas joined in on the laughing too.

And the part I wish I could ignore. Carson's first MRI. Oh ps. This floor passed my clean test. :) and got approved to be crawled on... Thumbs up Neuro's office. :) Carson had his first MRI. The results were exactly what I had expected and hoped not to hear. He does indeed have a tethered spinal cord.  ( Easy explanation----- Scar tissue has built up around Carson's back scar. This has basically caused his spinal cord to be stretched. It also has caused his Cerebral Spinal Fluid to be hindered from flowing freely, He has developed cavities of fluid. This can cause further damage, and may inhibit progress) We are unsure at this time about what we are going to do, surgery is how a tethered cord is corrected. The tricky part is making that call. If he is not demonstrating symptoms then we would wait to do surgery. But maybe his lack of progress is a result of this ???????? AHHHHH I hate not knowing----- we return for a follow-up MRI in March. At that point we will probably make the call. Please be praying for that appt. 

Despite all that news---- Carson did fantastic through his MRI!!!!! He is such a champ
OK so in summary! We are blessed and so very thankful for both of our boys and each and every day that we get to spend making memories. Every day is a memory. And every day is a blessing. Some days those memories mean that we face some hard stuff but that doesnt mean that it's not frosted with joy Just like this picture above --- while we were discussing his MRI. I'm sitting in the chair staring at a screen, trying to take all the info. in. I look down at Carson playing and laughing. - This is what our life is. Its crazy, its unpredictable, it's scary, it's wonderful, and it's so much fun.

Love, and MERRY CHRISTMAS from our family to yours!!!
