Happy 4th of July!

As I was sitting looking at the pictures for this year of the kids all dressed in their red, white, and blue, I started thinking about the past several years.

The 4th of July that first came to mind was 2008. This was the holiday 6 days prior to The Superhero being dx with T1 Diabetes. Looking back at THAT picture and seeing how skinny my 18 month old was is breathtaking and scary.

I am SO thankful he is still here, alive and well with us to celebrate another year living with Diabetes. His Diaversary is next weekend and we will definitely be celebrating!

And instead of just sharing that ONE year with you, I pulled pictures of all of our 4th of July celebrations since Rod and I had the kids. Enjoy...

From our house to yours, Happy 4th of July!

Cute pics!

Matthew was super-skinny before diagnosis, too.

You're right, we're so blessed to still have our kiddos!

LOVE insulin!

How adorable they are!!
I saw a little boy (thin, getting dehydrated, hair thinning) at Disney, and I wanted to ask if they'd had him checked, but it seemed wildly inappropriate. They all have that look. : (

SO thankful they are all healthy now : )
