Susannah is a precious little almost three year old girl just adopted from China. She got home Tuesday and was admitted to the hospital 12 hours later. She has a bad heart condition and will be undergoing a heart cath tomorrow to see if it is too late to do surgery or not. Please pray for her, that the cath goes well and that it is not too late to help her. Check out her story.

I promised, so here they are, pictures from all the festivities that have been held in Walker's honor this past week. I am worn out, our house can't hold all the new toys. It has been quite a week. So, without further ado, cause I know you are all on pins and needles...
We started the celebration on Saturday the 6th. Aunt Erynn and Kaisey picked Walker up and took him to Build a Bear. Walker had a fun time and came home with a Koala dressed like Batman. I forgot to upload a picture of "Koala Lou" or "Frosty the Snowman" as Walker calls him (and all his other stuffed animals) so just pretend that you see a picture of him. We went to Carter's mom's house after Truman got up from his nap. She was smoking ribs on her "Big Green Egg." Actually, she was charring ribs, but they still tasted great and she is just now getting the hang of it so I will cut her a little slack. She usually makes awesome ribs. If you don't already know, Walker shares a birthday with his cousin, Leeza. They were born 3 hours apart. So, it was a party for both of them. Walker got some neat presents and had a great time with his cake...with pink strawberry icing (just as he requested).
Walker with Alyson after getting his new airplane launcher gun thing.
They were a little anxious to get a bite.
Walker got an easel from Mema. He loves painting on it.
Truman likes it, too.
We gave Walker presents spread out over 2 days because on his actual birthday he had school and Carter had to work late so we wanted him to be able to play with his toys early...a few of the things he got
A new Star Wars Light Saber...he and Truman were having a sword fight. Truman has a Batman sword you can't really see.
On Sunday, we had a party at my parent's house. He got a new bicycle from Grammy and Papa
and an Alabama football uniform from Big B and Uncle Jeff
Mimi made Walker a dirt cake
I sent cupcakes to school for his class on Monday. He wanted strawberry icing again so I put lots of red sprinkles on top because Carter didn't really like the idea of a 3 year old boy and pink icing at preschool. Monday night we went to a birthday party for Leeza at Chuck-E Cheese. Both boys had a great time. I didn't bring my camera, so there are no pictures of Walker with icing all over his face and arms...how sad.
Tuesday, Carter and I took Walker to the Space and Rocket Center b/c all summer he has been asking to go see the rocket ships. He had a great time.
That evening, we went to my parent's house because his present had gotten there...a 2 seater ride on toy...he thinks it is a Gator, but the Gator got some bad reviews so we opted for the Power Wheels one.
Poor Truman's head jerked back each time Walker hit the gas. He drives it pretty good. We have been logging much backyard time since this present.
Saturday morning Walker had his "kid" party. We had it at the Christian Life Center of a church and it was so much fun. There was a giant gym with a moonbounce, hula hoops, balls, slides and 30 balloons. There were about 20 kids there and plenty of parents. We had pizza and cake and opened presents. The theme was Batman.

We went to the lake on Sunday to say farewell to the summer...even though it will surely be in the 90s for 2 more months. The boys had a great time. Truman added 4 more words to his repertoire with duck, boat, stuck and cracker. He got in the water with his Mimi and took a jet ski ride with Daddy. Walker spent much of the day fishing and he also swam around, went for a jet ski ride and a long boat ride. Truman was so tired he fell asleep when we put him in the car and Walker got about halfway home before he drifted off. Here are a few pictures.
