Our little Donkey!



Now this is a site you don't see everyday! The other day Ethan and Ava wanted to ride the "donkey", so my Dad helped me get Ranger saddled up so the kids could take a "ride" around the yard. Donkey just wanted to eat the clover in the yard and the kids were wanting to get going. So, they got bored and wanted to swing. Well, what do you do, you can't hold on to the donkey and push the kids, so I tied him up wo the swingset and everyone was happy!


























Here are my two kiddos "trying" to ride the donkey, but as you can see in both pictures, donkey's head is down eating away! Wish we were home now riding, but unfortunately we are in the hospital. Ethan woke up with a fever this morning so we ended up spending the morning at the clinic getting labs drawn and we ultimately ended up here in St. Louis. Ava is with my parents. Hopefully we'll get to come home on Sunday, but we don't know anything yet.

Needless to say, I do not have a card to share for Lauren's sketch tomorrow. Maybe I'll get to do both next week. I'm sure I'll be ready for some stamping by then! On a very good note though, we had good results from Ethan's MIBG treatments. All of the lesions are gone excpet for a spot on his leg and that didn't light up as much as last time, so this means that the treatment is working and we will most likely proceed with another MIBG treatment in Philly in another week. We are very happy with the results and are hoping and praying that this next treatment will get Ethan back in remission again.


I'll leave with a photo from the professional photographer that took pictures from Ethan's Make-A-Wish. They are wonderful and I couldn't be happier with them. She gave us all the proofs, a small little booklet and the cd with all the pictures on it. Hope all of you have a great weekend. Thanks for checking in.

Can't wait to see all of your pictures. Hoping you'll get Ethan back home tomorrow and that his fever has stayed down.

OMG...Ethan and Ava are so cute :O) I love it when you share pictures of them. They're so funny trying to ride the donkey who can't be bothered! LOL

Glad to hear the news about Ethan. I hope his fever subsided and he's feeling better. Still praying for you all...even sweet Ava who probably didn't want to be left behind at her grandparents :( Hang in there.

Alicia,
This is a wonderful picture of Ethan! I saw it first on Kristin's site, but I did not realize that it was for his make a wish pictures!

I love the pictures of the kids on the Donkey too! My two DD 6 and 4 loved them as well! We continue to keep your family in our prayers!

I like how you did the cards above in two different colors!

Wow, this is an AMAZING photo! I'd enlarge that sucker and get a rustic frame, wrap some bob-wire around it...and hang it up for all the world to see.
