HAPPY BIRTHDAY WHITE BEAR !!
So this evening Matthan comes downstairs and informs us joyfully that "today is White Bear's birthday". He turned 9 today. For any who don't know, White Bear is a tiny stuffed animal inherited from Caitlyn that Matthan sleeps with every night and brings to us in the mornings to snuggle. This bear has gone through at least one surgery with Matthan and tomorrow he will go through another.
To celebrate this happy day, we went to a local ice cream shop "Paul's Donuts & Ice Cream". Matthan had a scoop of chocolate with rainbow sprinkles, Dad had a German chocolate (um duh) with peanuts and Mom had a banana split (root beer had caffeine, sigh) and Caitlyn being lactose intolerant had a cherry sprite. A good time was had by all, even White bear!
We thank you all for your prayers covering the surgery tomorrow. It takes place at 8:30 CST.
