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.

Whiffle Ball Tourney 2010

Today was a wonderful day for a Whiffle Ball Tournament. Maybe a little humid but it was warm, the rain held out and we got to see some amazing old friends!! Scotts fraternity brothers and buddies have been putting together this whiffle ball tournament each year since I can remember. When our Annie got sick and was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome the guys got together and decided to increase the price per team and give all the proceeds to the Rett Syndrome Research Trust - an organization that is close to our hearts because all they do is research for a cure (and they do it VERY effectively, check out the site!)! What an amazing bunch of guys! Scott and I were truely overcome with thankfulness and are humbled every year when the guys get together and show us their support.

The tournament is held in a park in Pleasant Ridge
20 Teams this year - that doubles the amount of teams there were last year!

Of course there were drinks (ahem, maybe too many drinks!)
Our friend Pat flew in for the tournament and had never met Annie before - He fell in love! Can you blame him? She IS pretty sweet!
We brought a picnic
The kids had a blast on the jungle gym at the park!
My sister in law was there with her beautiful kids. This is the newest addition (and my God son!) Matthew. How adorable is he???
Gracie and Emma talkin' stickers!
My brother got together a team the "Annie-mals"!
Of course Scott got together "Annie's A-Team"!
An awesome day with an awesome group of family and friends! Just too blessed! Thank you to everyone who came out to support, got a team together, donated or helped set up the event - we are more grateful then you'll ever know!
