Birthday happenings...

Our little girl is four!! She had a wonderful birthday celebration! Her favorite thing right now is anything that has "Princesses and Princes". She is my girlie girl for sure.

We received a surprise phone call last week from "Dreams Come True". This week here in Jacksonville is the "Disney Princesses on Ice" show. So, Dreams Come True is doing a Princess tea party tomorrow. They invited Zoe! They will do hair, make-up, games, have lunch & tea of course, she also will get her very own princess dress to keep and there will be 2 of the Disney Princesses there!! She is going to be so excited, I can hardly wait to see her face. Our family is also going to receive tickets to actually go see the opening night of the ice show on Thursday night! We have never been to see one because of the expense of the tickets, we feel very blessed!

I haven't written in a while, so updates are needed on Zoe's health. The 'cold' went away, but a cough set in. So, 2 weeks ago she was put on Bactrim. Today is the 2 week mark, if she was 100%, then we could stop the Bactrim, if not, 2 more weeks. Uggghhh, still not all cleared up. Here we go with 2 more weeks. This cycle we run with cf....it gets tough.

On a good note, we sent out our Great Strides letters last week and received our first donations yesterday! $150.00 already!!! Yeah!!! We also received a CFF blanket from one of Scott's Uncles! We have a tradition around here once we start receiving the "Zoe for Life" donations back in the mail, the kids always want to be the one to go to the mailbox to see if we got one that day! You can watch from the window to see their expressions as they are looking through the pile, they smile & start yelling if we get one! It is so heart warming their love for their sister and a cure. I have a dear friend that is doing a 'Recruitment' dinner at her house for our team on Sunday, her family has really jumped on board to help, it is humbling. Then last night, yet another surprise, I received an e-mail from my friend that I have been friends with for 18 years, she is in charge of a huge home schooling network. She wrote up a fantastic letter and sent it out to over 600 families!!!! I cried. We feel so blessed to have all these people concerned for our Zoe.

Have a great day!
