Heath and Owen. Owen is having fun coloring
The pretty eggs!
On easter sunday we woke the boys up to play with their easter baskets before church.
Owen eating cheerios before church
Next, Heath and I went to church together and then to lunch at Dennys. It was great to spend that time, just the four of us.
Here are a couple pics of the boys in their suits!
Both my boys!
After lunch we went home and got the kids ready to go to my grandpa's house. Heath had to work and was unable to come with us :( The boys got to meet a couple more cousins. It was a short time spent with family but we all had fun. Owen didn't feel too well so he did not have any interest in the eggs. You will see in the pictures lol
Owens battle scar :) A few days ago we took a walk. When we got back I put the boys in the house and went back outside to deal with the stroller. Naturally, they both crawled to the door. The door was open but the screen door was closed. My mom was right there so I wasn't really paying attention to them like I should have been. Well, both boys decide that they are going to use the screen door to stand up. However, this screen door doesn't really lock. My mom and I didn't even think about it. So, both boys put their weight on the screen door . . . not good. The screen door opened and both boys came tumling out. There is a good size step from the front door to the porch. I caught Isaiah before he really hit the porch. My mom caught Owen but it was too late. He scratched his head on the porch. Here are a couple pictures of the damage. Poor guy
He was a trooper. Didn't cry when I washed it with soap and water :)

In case there is someone reading this who does not know what Owen's Miracle is, let me give a brief overview.
Owen's Miracle is a branch of Project Sweet Peas. Project Sweet Peas is a non-profit organization which strives to help NICU families in their time of need. They donate gift bags to families with children in intensive care units. Owen's Miracle was started in honor of Owen. We are so blessed to have him home and we just would like to give back to people who are going through what we went through with Owen.
On April 23, 2010 Owen was discharged from the NICU after an 8month stay. This means that Owen has been home for almost a year!! In honor of Owen being home for a year, Owen's Miracle is making its first bag donation to Oakland Children's Hospital NICU. We are currently working very hard to put 40 gift bags together so we can deliver them next friday!! We are so excited for our first gift bag delivery and cannot wait for the many more deliveries we hope are in the future!
