Well, we didn't do the typical Halloween thing this year...We decided to just have a low key weekend and spend some time with family. We spent time with our heart families on Saturday at the annual Amazing Little Hearts Halloween party - it was so great to see all the kids in their costumes running around having a great time! And it was so good to see our heart family friends.

|Matching shoes! Like father like son...|

|Dena, Tucker, Liam and me...Liam just started pointing this past week. He was pointing to a giant TV screen aquarium on the wall in front of us!|
Saturday, we had our nieces over while their parents went to a Halloween Party...All decked out too!! Their costumes were great!
|Creepy clown and fancy witch!|
|He loves tearing them down...But he also just learned how to stack them up too!|
|All the kiddos!|
It was a great weekend, less all the costumes, but it was how we decided to do it this year, and I'm glad we didn't miss the chance to spend time with family!
Also, just an update....We have scheduled Liam's cath for Thursday, Nov. 11 at 8am. We are still unsure at what all this may mean for us, but we are trying to prepare ourselves as best as possible. On a similar front, I had been talking about us making some big changes recently. One of those changes meant pulling Liam out of daycare for the immediate future. He needs to stay healthy, so he can get healthy. The fact that he has not gained weight concerned us, and we feel like whenever he is sick (which had been 70% of the time lately) he just can't get the feeding in to keep him healthy and thriving. Along with this change, I have decided to finish out the year at my job and then stay at home with Liam full time come January...This was the biggest decision for us, but we feel 100% at peace about it and know we are doing the right thing for our family. It was very hard, after 5 years at my current company, to tell them my decision. They have become like family to me, and have been overly supportive and encouraging during our roughest times. It is going to be very hard to say goodbye.
Just wanted to say thanks again for all the support, love and encouragement from all of you through Liam's journey. We are turning a new corner, and no matter what the future brings, it is comforting and reassuring to know we have people praying for us and there for us along the way.
