This is Halloween

Halloween. Few holiday's have impacted my child's life in the same way that this one has.

Natalie was due on Halloween in 2003. Pre-eclampsia sucks. So she came 5 weeks early instead.

Here she is on her first Halloween. Sprung from the NICU just in time to celebrate. Notice her bald spot from where they'd shaved her head for an IV? I do.


And then the next year, well we weren't sure if she'd make it. Not gonna sugar coat that one. The fever, ascites, rising bilirubin, and failing liver were enough to get her listed on the transplant list for a new liver. Her eyes tell the story. She was miserable.


And then in 2005, Aunt "Mamdy" came home from Iraq:

And now I am on a roll...and so you get to see the rest.

Yeah you!!!!

2006 - the Dorothy obsession:

2007 - The witch that the house fell on. Notice the "Dorothy shoes"

2008 - Abby Cadabby

2009 - H1N1.

Hospital stay.

So we "re-did Halloween" the next week. She was a Renaissance Princess:

2010 Renaissance Vampire!

2011 - SuperGirl!!!!

I can't wait to show you tonight's pictures!!!

Don't forget to sign the guestbook.
