♥♥ Kyra's First Birthday ♥♥

Hello Guys, I hope all of you had a Great Christmas.... Mine was Wonderful just getting this Video from Josh of Kyra's first Birthday party which they had on December 20th and I just wanted to share it with you.....It was so great to see this little one having a party after all she has been through in her short life....God is GREAT!!! Kyra is my Great Granddaughter and spend the first 3 months of her life at Dallas Children's Hospital....She has her first heart surgery at 8 hours old with another one to follow and 18 throat surgeries and four feeding tubes put into her tummy to be able to eat...Now look at HER!!! Thank you God and the doctors at Dallas for giving Kyra and her family this special day.....

video

And guess what Kyra started walking the day before Christmas....Nothing will be safe now ha ha!!! Happy Birthday Kyra....

Thanks for coming by and seeing my sweet little Kyra....I hope to get back to the wonderful world of blogging this week....If I can ever get my house cleaned up ha ha!! Why does it take weeks to get ready for one day and weeks to clean up and rest up afterwards??? I don't know about you girls But I'm like an air mattress after Christmas that someone pulled my plug and let my all air out ha ha !!! All I want to do is curl up in my old red robe on and take a nap ha ha!!

May all of you have a Blessed day today....I sure know I'm very blessed....

Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Gloria,
Little Kyra is so adorable!! Bless her little heart,for all she had to endure. It is wonderful to see how healthy she seems now.

I love your sense of humor! I know very well how you feel. A hot cup of chocolate, a good book and relax is all I want to do.

I am so glad you had a joyful Christmas. Thank you for being such an inspiration and sharing your sense of humor.

Blessings,
Jan

Hi Gloria! I'm sitting here with the biggest grin on my face - what an adorable little girl she is. And what a true miracle she is! The power of prayer is truly amazing. I just know that she has great things in store for her. Thank you so much for sharing her story with all of us. So glad that you had a wonderful Christmas, now try and take a break! Hugs, Kathy

I have been curled up on the couch with the lap top, movies, and books for the last 2 days. What a life! What will I do next week when school starts back and I have to re-enter real life?

Oh, Gloria! Thanks so much for sharing this video! I have tears in my eyes! How wonderful to hear her little laugh and to see her enjoying her first birthday cake...mess and all! She is indeed a miracle baby! A very happy birthday to sweet little Miss Kyra! And hugs to you, my friend! Happy week!...Debbie

Oh Gloria, I am so happy to see brave Kyra. This video is so precious of a precious beautiful girl. She looks so healthy now, you wouldn't think she's had multiple surgery. I hope you continue to enjoy this holiday season...Christine

Oh Gloria, she gets cuter every time I see her! Her health issues didn't affect her appetite! She was loving that cake. What a way to go into the new year! Happy 2010 friend. laurie

Janet Happy Girl said...

ahhhh she's so sweet.

Sue said...

What a sweetie pie celebrating her birthday! How come they love to smear cake and icing all over themselves? It is amusing...
I agree with you- you spend so much time getting ready for one big day and POOF- it's gone and you're left with a disastrous house! I still have a party on the 2nd, then I will contemplate taking things down and putting them all away. That could take another 2 weeks. LOL
Happy New Year wishes to you, Gloria! hugs, Sue

Happy Birthday to Kyra! Such a cute video.

I tell ya Gloria, I feel pretty deflated right now too, just like the big blow up Christmas decoration on my front lawn! The kids don't go back to school till the 11th of Jan. I hope this Wii game thing can keep 'em entertained that long!

Happy New Year!
Dawn

I can't believe this little miracle is already a year old! Bless her sweet little heart. She's been through more in her short life than most of us will have to endure in a lifetime! What a beauty. I can relate to the air mattress analogy! It's totally me! Big smiles!
