Day 4 surprise party

Here is the video from Grayson's 4 day party. Lots of folks have been making fun of my pitiful birthday signs, so I decided to step it up a little. Take it up a notch if you will. Know my problem is going to be topping it each day. It's gonna be tough.

What a perfect birthday party for that perfect blessing!!

You all are heavy on my heart right now...me, just a stranger in a suburb of Atlanta, GA deeply moved by your faith and strength through the love shown for your two children.

Thank you...for what you've shown to me personally.

I've been praying for you guys every day since before Grayson was born. I'm so happy that you've been able to celebrate four sweet birthdays with him. I have a very special monkey that I would love to share with Grayson and I'm wondering if there is any way that I could get him to you. Let me know!

I love how you all are celebrating his life each moment and day! What an inspiration for all of us to remember the preciousness of time we (and our children) have been given!
Praying for Grayson to hang in there so he can have so more birthday celebrations and get some more monkeys and of course some more kisses form Mama and daddy!
Hugs and Prayers

Good job on the big birthday sign...isn't there some blue paint...left by the painting pros?

Can't wait to see the new monkeys!
Praying for you all.

I found your blog through another blog and I have been thinking about your family non-stop ever since. I sat here with tears streaming down my face as I watched your beautiful celebration of Grayson's 4 day birthday. I will continue to keep your family in my prayers. God bless you.

As a fellow angel mother I can only imagine the joy and pain that Grayson is bringing to you right now. We lost our little one after a two week battle and I commend you for bringing him home. I would love to have brought Kaitlin home but we didn't get the chance. Your strength comes from your love and it shows just how much you love not only Grayson but also Kinsey. Know I will be thinking about your family through all of this and hope you can find peace.

I am almost speechless. What a beautiful, strong family you are. Your baby boy is SO lucky to have you as parents. Just know that people are praying you through this journey.

Michelle said...

you'll probably hate me for saying this, but i was TERRIFIED the whole video cuz of the candle... that could cause the oxygen to catch on fire.


but aside from that... wonderful!

We appreciate everyone's concern with Gray Man's safety. We were well aware of the oxygen around his candle. Oxygen in itself is not flammable and his flow rate is fairly low. Both Kristi and myself are nurses, I can't count the number of times I've witnessed pt's light a cigarette and smoke while on oxygen. 2L of 02 blowing on a flame will do absolutely nothing. Gray man is safe and we promise we won't test his flammability.

Sweetest birthday party ever!!! Thanks for sharing. Praying Praying Praying!

Holy crap that is a huge sign! Glad to hear you wont test his flammability. :)

Kimberly said...
