Halloween Night

I haven't gotten a full update yet today about Maggie, so I thought I would post a few of the fun Halloween pictures we had. I will be sure to add more about Maggie as soon as I hear more. Over the past two days, they have been turning down the oxygen levels that Maggie was receiving, for her to begin to breathe more on her own. The prayer continues to be that the valve in her heart will close on its own, and that she will be able to breathe without assistance. As I was writing this, I just got a text from Brooke that they are about to take Maggie's vent out! What an awesome answer to prayer! Please continue to cover this sweet little baby and her family in your prayers. God is continuing to be faithful.

On Halloween night, we decided to take Anna Lee to the Owen's Pumpkin Farm and carve a pumpkin, instead of trick-or-treating. We felt like she had disliked her costume enough at Trunk or Treat, that she shouldn't have to wear it again. She seemed to have way more fun at the Pumpkin Farm anyway. They had a petting zoo and a barrell ride that Anna Lee and I took together. I may not be that far along in my pregnancy, but that barrell was an uncomfortable ride! Anna Lee loved it, though. She was very frustrated that she didn't get to ride on the actual tractor.

Not quite sure of the jumping goats.
At the pumpkin farm, Anna Lee got to choose a pumpkin for us to take home and carve. We read the book The Pumpkin Patch Parable, and then carved a jack-o-lantern like the story. Anna Lee thought it was very interesting. We weren't sure if she would get into it or not, but she dug right in...literally. She was very proud of the finished product, although the picture we caught does not show that.
