That is not where this story ends. One year to the day of Brian's accident, again September 26th my twin cousins were born! They are both girls! However, the first one born was named Brittany Erin after my brother, Brian Eric. Caitlin is the second twin! They are both in college now and today they are celebrating their 20th birthday! Happy Birthday Britt and Cait! Love you lots! We will never forget September 26th, it is a happy reminder every year that the power of prayer is real and that miracles can and do happen!

This afternoon we got our water back! You never realize how many things you need water for until you have none. We went this morning again to the Slocumbs to take showers and we filled some containers for flushing purposes but luckily we never had to use them! The kitchen is clean! I have run the dishwasher 3 times on hot to sanitize everything! It is so nice to be back to normal. Thank you to our awesome friends for letting us bathe, wash McKenzie's cups, and brush our teeth at your houses! We really appreciate you!

Last night we had supper club at our house and Katie, Lobello, and Heider came. Katie and Lobello arrived first. McKenzie said Katie a few times and Lobello was practicing her name just as Heider walks into the house. Heider walks in carrying a small box from the Publix bakery. Inside the box, he has bought one huge cookie, with the word HEIDER written in blue icing! It was so funny we all lost it. Again, MG enjoyed part of the cookie after dinner and never said Heider! Below, you will see the cookie and MG's face after eating it! Too funny! We really do have the best friends!
Cookies make MG do silly things!
She loves to put bowls on her head!
McKenzie is putting on a show with crazy faces during dessert!

When Jason got home last Thursday, McKenzie could not stop saying Da Da. She followed him all over the house and when he was out of sight, she called for him and had to go and find him. It was the sweetest thing ever. She really missed her sweet Daddy! It is good to have Jason home. It felt like he was gone forever. Our communication while he was there was minimal so it really felt like he was gone a long time. However, he and Jeffrey had a blast! It was great that Jason had the opportunity to go and visit.

Tonight McKenzie and I went to eat with Supper Club. When we were leaving Katie went to tell McKenzie bye and McKenzie looked right at Katie and said bye bye Ka. It was so sweet! No one told her to say that, she did it all by herself! Katie and I looked at each other and just started clapping and screaming. It was so exciting! McKenzie loves Katie...and Lobello...and Eric....and Tiff!
