I hope you enjoy these portraits. They cropped out the Thomas train in Daniel's picture before they printed it. Letting him hold it was the only way to make him happy and get him to sit still. You can't see it, but he is holding it in his right hand in the bottom picture, also.
The kids are all feeling better. The doctor advised that we should stay home from church today, but things should be back to normal this week.

My babies are home! We are so grateful that they are better!!!! Jonathan came home on Saturday, and Andrew came home yesterday. They are both doing really well. My dad was here to help on Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday morning. He took Nathaniel (Optimus Prime--from Transformers), Emily (Ariel the mermaid), and Daniel (Thomas the Tank Engine) trick-or-treating while I stayed home and handed out the candy. Andrew wore his James the Red Engine costume in the hospital (I took pictures with my 35mm camera, so they aren't ready yet), and different nurses and other staff from the hospital visited him in their costumes and brought him candy. After trick-or-treating Saturday night, we all went to visit him and bring him more treats.
We have had so much comfort, love, and support from family and friends and we are very, very grateful.
Daniel refused to sit still for a picture. He sure had fun, though.
