Giving thanks!

We are now a month post-op from the g-tube surgery and Annabelle has gone from 24.6 pounds to 29.7 pounds!  She is doing so well with the tube, even tells me when she's hungry to put it in her tummy.  She also has a lot more energy as she's getting 1200 calories / day.  I'm not sure what she was getting before but it didn't come close to that.

For Thanksgiving we went to visit Grandma Linda and Papa in Erie.  We had a wonderful weekend and celebrated Annabelle's 5th birthday and Christmas with them as well.  As always it went very fast but we were grateful for nice weather to travel.

We are getting ready for Annabelle's big birthday.  She is having a birthday party on the 12th and so far 21 friends have said they are coming (out of 24 invited).  So that will be lots of fun!  We decided to have it at the studio where Annabelle takes dance, Dancing with Denise.  It will be a Frozen dance party.  I'm sure I will have a million pictures to share after.
