"God doesn't give children with special needs to strong people; He gives children with special needs to ordinary, weak people and then gives them strength. Raising a child with special needs doesn't take a special family, it makes a special family."

Tanner's 1st Christmas @ home!

Christmas 2008 was spent in the Phoenix Childrens Hospital NICU, due to having a shunt placed on 12/24/08. So technically that was Tanner's "1st" Christmas. But I don't look @ it that way.
Christmas is fun..... do he look like he is having fun??




He wasn't even able to wear his Christmas outfit, so he used it as a "blanket" instead. :)



It says "Who needs Santa, I've got grandparents!" Ain't that the truth!!


Ray & I gave Tanner a "Sit N Stand Vtech Train...... but as you can see below he wasn't too sure of it!


Tanner received many gifts.... clothes, toys.... but he was interested in other things! Go figure!




Like Maple's bed & toys! This is so much more fun Mom!



Also ... I think this tag tastes better than it looks!


All in all.... Christmas was good to us in 2009. No hospital, no surgeries... just having our little man @ home and enjoying eachother. Wish we could have gone to Utah, hopefully that'll happen in 2010!
Merry Christmas!
