look at the big chicken

We had so much to be grateful for this year! We spent several weeks talking to the kids about Thanksgiving and all they cared about was the big chicken they where going to eat. On thanksgiving Morning Fabrice and Dave spent the morning getting the turkey ready to cook,Dave knows how to make a good turkey. This was our first Thanksgiving in 2 years to be able to be home and not eating dinner at Primary children Hospital. It was so nice to be able to hear what everyone was thankful for,when we got to Yonelson he said I am Thankful for Nothing,But he later came back and said He was thankful for his family. Nerlange was thankful for everyone and everything,Fabrice was thankful for his Family also. The kids loved the turkey but nothing else, they also where not a big fan of pie but they did like cool whip.
I remember last year we where Thankful for adding Fabrice to our family and this year I am so Thankful to see him play and have fun and not have to worry about life like a old man.
Last year I was Thankful that both Nerlange and yonelson looked pretty Healthy on the trip in October,This year I am Thankful that they have grown so much and Yonelson is just the Happiest funniest kid ever and Nerlange is turning into a little care taker and is always looking out for her brothers and sister,I am also so Thankful for our older kids that have been such great Big Brothers and sister and have helped the little ones with learning new things and help them when they are struggling. I love you so much! I also am Thankful for the Great Man that I married he takes care of us and works so hard to make sure we are taken care of and Happy. you are such a great example to our kids. I love you!

You Just gotta love your Doctor!

 It has been a week officially since Kaleb's surgery so far all has went well,the surgery lasted 4 hours and they where able to do everything like they planed. He only had to stay in the Hospital 3 days and this week he is feeling good other then at night when we have to give him his blood thinner shot's,but they are way better then a blood clot that makes you not able to breath. This should be Kaleb's last surgery,They will remove the pins in his sheen in the Doctors office, I hope i don't pass out but that sounds Gross and Bad. I am very thankful for Kaleb's Orthopedics doctor he is so great,If you ever need one his Name is Dr.Klatt, when Dr. klatt came in on Sautrday to check on Kaleb, Kaleb had written a nice letter with a picture of him in His Football gear to thank Dr. klatt for helping him get his legs better so he was able to play football without all the pain. It was a very sweet letter. I guess Dr.klatt took it to show his Mom and later That evening he came back to the Hospital with his Mom. His mom said she had to come and meet kaleb since she has heard a lot about him,(not that many kids get a blood clot after leg surgery) I just think that shows what a great man Dr. klatt is to still be this way with his mom. I am thankful for the Great doctors and Great Hospital we have! so my sweet little boy is still around to celebrate this Thanksgiving!

Being Thankful

During this time of the year when we are thinking about what we are thankful for, I have been thinking about how my three little ones all ways say "I Need water",which I am sure something they all ways did need and wanted. I remember when we would travel to Haiti when we got to the Airport in Florida getting ready to board the last plane on our way to Haiti we all would stock up on Water because this would be your last opportunity to get clean water until we made it to the Hotel. Now we hear about the cholera break out and all those news reports saying that all Haiti needs is clean water to help with this out break. That is easer said then done,and sometimes it makes me so mad.Then we all ways have people piping up come on Help the people here. I agree fully we need to help here but the people struggling in America have clean water. I hope people during this time can remember the simple things in life that we should be thankful for, My sweet little ones remind me all the time about the things we just take for granted. I am so Thankful that they are home safe and sound and we can enjoy the Holidays together.

He has waited so long

On November 7th Fabrice had his Baptism Day he has waited so long,we had to wait until we had official adopted them then he had the Missionary lessons.  He was so excited to become a member of the LDS church. He counts down to every sunday and he makes sure everyone goes to church,Even when we are not around he tells his grandpa that they need to go to church. He is one special Kid. His Baptism day was so nice they let him be Baptized on a Sunday and he had so much support from Family and friends and from his friends that are from Haiti That will Hopefully remain like Family. We have so much support from our great Ward and Bishopric. I hope it will be day that fabrice remembers.

Happy Halloween!!

 This year we where back too Trick or treating,our Older kids went with there friends. so Me and Dave took the little ones around are neighborhood. We had spent weeks talking about how you dress up and go to peoples door and say trick or treat and then they give you candy. The first house they where a little nervous,but then they realized it really Happens ,then after that they where running to the house's.
 It was so fun on Friday the school had there Halloween parade and the kids had so much fun.
 Yonelson was Micheal Jackson,But he was all ways wearing his wig wrong and looked a little like George Washington.
Nerlange was Princess Tiana she was cute as ever,she was a little scared with some of the costumes But she loved the Candy and that made it all better.
Fabrice was a dead Zombie and it was cute because when we first started putting the green face paint and the fake scars he was worried that it would not come off if we put it on. But then we showed him how it would wash off.  We can say they are a fan of Halloween!!!
