Simply enjoy:)

Callie is doing well, has another sinus infection that she is currently on back to back antibiotics for but she is GOOD;)Here are some pics from the last couple of months. Callie was in a fashion show for Wolfson Children's Hospital and she was awesome! It was hard to get good pics so there aren't many.
I enjoyed a Thanksgiving Feast with Callie at her school last Friday! Isn't she the cutest pilgrim??
Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with family! We are thankful to be home and that Callie is happy and healthy. Thank you, Lord, for your wonderful blessings and miracles you work everyday.

Good times.....

Callie had character day at school about 2 Fridays ago. Callie chose to be Ariel!!
Isn't she ADORABLE?? (I think so) She had a good time with all her friends. They had a pumpkin patch for the kids at school, so each child was able to pick at pumpkin. And in class they had all kinds of activities for that day.
Callie had her 1st visit with the dentist on Halloween. I was so nervous because of her heart and the risk that she faces going to the dentist even with the antibiotics. But, Mommy faced her fears and we made it there!
Happy to report, she has NO CAVITIES:) :) As for later that night we it came to dressing up, Callie decided she was going to be her new FAV character, "Doc Mcstuffins" for those who do not know who she is, LOOK IT UP;) It is a show on Disney and it is about a little girl who is a doctor to her toys that come to life when only she is around! Really cute show!! So here she is
Callie had a blast Trick or Treating, but she did tell us that she did not get enough candy because her bag wasn't full;) Callie isn't big on candy so the half bag she collected will last her the rest of the year! Unless, Mommy eats it;)
