The Easter Egg Hunt

Discussion in 'People' started by Terri French, Apr 21, 2019.

  1. Our daughter and her family came to visit us for Easter weekend. We had a lot of fun at several different activities. Yesterday morning we filled Easter Eggs for our family Easter Egg hunt and then we went to a local community egg hunt. It was fun having the older cousins help the little boys learn the ropes of the community hunt.

    Our precious grandson, Brody, (in the blue and charcoal striped shirt), was born with an extremely rare genetic metabolic disorder called Beta Keto Thiolase. It showed up in his newborn screening, but upon further testing the doctor consulted a specialist who mistakenly determined that he didn't have it. By the time he was finally correctly diagnosed he had almost died from ketoacidosis. It caused him some damage and he has worked so hard to learn how to walk and talk. He is a very bright little boy and is the most loving and kind child I have ever known. I adore him with all my heart. Little brother, Crosby, does not have the disorder, but the recent heartbreaker is that his newborn little brother also has the same disorder, but they found it at birth and are taking precautions to minimize the side effects.

    It is so fun to watch Brody have fun and be able to function fairly normally in the world. He is my hero!!

    Our daughter, Melissa, with little brother, Asher, who also has the disorder. My daughter is amazing and does all she can to give these two little guys every advantage to stay healthy and have the best life possible. She is one strong, amazing woman!!

    Terri, these are so sweet! Thanks for sharing your family again with us. This is surely the good stuff, right? Families together, just enjoying life.

    Also, there's no mistaking Melissa being your daughter! That smile and those eyes!
     
  7. Images such as these are the important ones in life. Long after the landscapes and still lifes have faded from memory pictures of family and loved ones will be treasured. And you do such a good job of it! :)

  8. It was fun!! Thanks.
     
  9. Thank you for looking!!

    Thank you!!

    Yes. It was great on Saturday. On Sunday we had 30 people for dinner at our house and it was raining. We had to do the egg hunt for the grandkids indoors. To say it was wild is an understatement. I didn't get any photos of that activity.....too busy working!!

    Thank you. I think it is the best stuff. You are the first person who says Melissa looks like me. She looks so much like her dad. I'm glad there is a resemblance to me, too!!

    You are right about these images being important. I am not a good journal writer, but in the future my posterity will learn a lot about me from my photos!! Thank you so much.
