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.

Pool Party!

This summer its been HOT!  Like REALLY HOT!  Like 100 degree temps hot!  Infact the average temp for July was over 90 degrees - the AVERAGE temp. And we are talking humidity through the roof - this isn't a nice dry heat like Arizona, its a sweating, can't stay hydrated, hard to think kind of heat.  Ok, you get it.  Anyways, the most refreshing way to combat this heat is to jump into a pool.  Thankfully, my sister and brother in law have recently moved into a house with an in-ground swimming pool!  These two are amazing, they allow us to use the pool whenever we would like, day or night, weather they are home or not.  If they are home and they know Annie is coming over they make sure to crank the heat so she is comfortable.  And if we stay too late into the evening, they set up the Bar-B-Que and feed us.... all of us...... all 5 of us!  On weekends they have hosted several Hawaiian themed parties that all of the kids (and the adults) just have a blast at!  These guys are just so thoughtful and make it so easy for me to get all the kids out, cooled off and having fun with the convenience of allowing Annie to chill out inside and watch a movie if she's having a difficult day - any special needs mom knows how comforting that is!  A huge thank you to Uncle Jeremy and Aunt Jen for hosting such a great summer!!  

The Luau's!
 This is the cutest boy ever!  My God son Matthew!
