Scott and Bridget met in 1993 and were married in 2001. In September of 2003 we welcomed our first miracle, James. 16 months later we brought home our second miracle, Annie. And in October of 2006 our family was complete with miracle #3, Gracie. Rett syndrome entered our lives when Annie was diagnosed on May 19, 2006. This is the life of the MacDonald family as we juggle 3 small children and battle Rett Syndrome until Gods perfect time when we are cured.

Easter Goodies!

We don't fill our kids Easter baskets with candy, instead we fill them with fun toys and we try to find a thing or two that reminds our kids of the REAL reason we celebrate Easter. Oh, don't get me wrong, the kids eat more than their fair share of candy, they just have to wait for the Easter Egg Hunt for that!

I thought that I would post here what Annie got for Easter since some times it's difficult to find age appropriate gifts (Annie's 5 by the way) for our sweet angels and Annie seems to be having fun with her Easter goodies.

This actually didn't come in her basket, it was a great gift that wonderful Grammy brought for Annie. Its the Gazillion Bubble Machine. This is awesome! It takes batteries and has an on/off switch which means we were able to adapt it to a switch, and ta da Annie controls the bubbles! Here's Gracie doing hand over hand with Annie and helping her hit her switch!

Here's Annie with her Bear, but no ordinary Bear, this bear has speakers in it's feet. We can hook it up to a radio, CD player or my i-phone and Annie can listen to music without needing ear phones. I wish I had a picture of her sweet smile when I hooked it up to my i-phone the first time and she heard the music coming out of it, not to mention she LOVES her stuffedies!

Here's the Singing Bible. I was looking for a Children's Bible on CD for Annie and came across this. It's perfect, she absolutly LOVES music! Oh, and even better, we can hook the CD player up to the bear above! :)As you can see in these pictures Annie isn't her typical, happy, smiley self. She's going through a rough patch yet again. She is off and on happy and in pain - which is a blessing, much better than just 100% pain but yet still not ideal. I have a couple ideas and we will be seeing some of her specialists this month so hopefully we will get to the bottom of it quickly but she could sure use your prayers!!!
