Last Saturday Robby and I were both home and thought Lily was in the playroom, only to find her in the pantry in the flour. She thought it was a great joke.

So Lily LOVES to get into things she's not supposed to, as most toddlers do. Here are some pictures from the last two weeks. In this one, she grabbed Robby's BYU hat and put it on and was SO proud of herself! She found the Halloween candy and was sucking on this sucker with the wrapper on it, so I decided she she try it. Obviously, she liked it. She not tries to get into the pantry when ever I accidently leave the door open, to find more candy.

My friend had a link on her blog to this, and I read it this morning and had a good cry. I'd read it once before when Emily was younger, and reading it now brought back all the feelings I had while struggling to take care of her. Elder Faust gave this talk years ago at a general conference. I think he captures the joy and heartache of having a child with disabilities better than anything I've read, including the poem "A Trip to Holland." Here's a link http://www.lds.org/ldsorg/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=2354fccf2b7db010VgnVCM1000004d82620aRCRD&locale=0&sourceId=6ec405481ae6b010VgnVCM1000004d82620a____&hideNav=1. I am so grateful for the privledge it is to be Emily's mom. It's a rough time of year without her here-this week was a year ago from when she was in the hospital for the first time last year, plus it's the holidays, so I'm glad for things like this talk to help get me through it.

Lily was her puppy, Harry, who she loves and carries around with her. Robby was the Headless Horseman. And yes, that is a real pumpkin on his head that he carved and put on his head.
