How can I really thank everyone who left messages and prayers for my family? I will show you what the miracle of prayer can do.

Here is Carson after he came home from the hospital. The doctors said this next month is critical, but he should be ok. He will not be completely out of danger for a year. He is feeling good and is very cautious with everything he does. He realizes
if he hits his head again, he could be back in the hospital. He will be going back to school tomorrow. Later today, baby sister will be coming home.

Carson, Campbell and Caison having lunch on Friday.

Nicole, 24 hours before delivery.

Just because Nicole will be delivering in the next 24 hours doesn't mean she doesn't have chores to do. She is helping me clean up from making pepperoni roles.

Meet Caramia!!!!
8 lbs. 6 oz.
DOB: 2/9/2008
4:55 p.m.
Doesn't Nicole look great!!! Caramia is just 3 hours old.
Nicole had a very easy delivery. She was in labor for only 15 minutes and as soon as Caramia was born her sickness went away. Nicole's first words to Caramia were "I forgive you"! All her pregnancies have made her extremely ill.

Proud MawMaw and Caramia

I just couldn't put her down!

Again, thank you for all your prayers!!!!!

Praise God for Carson's recovery and for the safe birth of Caramia. She is beautiful! Congratulations. I wouldn't put her down either. I love babies and children. They are a precious gift.

I will continue praying for Carson. Please keep us updated on his progress as well as the Caramia's and Nicole's.

That sweet Caramia is beautiful, just like her Grandma!! (I had to smile when I saw the picture of you holding the new baby and your glasses are on top of your head! If you go back in my archives to the birth of my new grandbaby you'll see that's where mine are too!! I only need them to read and the sad part is..I catch myself looking for them and they're on my head! :O)

Carson looks great and I'm so thankful that he's okay. Prayer really is powerful! All your grandchildren are beautiful!!
