The kids both have birthdays in February - this birthday shoot was extra special. We are beyond grateful to celebrate this birthday and I truly do cherish every hug and smile from these too. For those of you who are not aware, my family was in a horrific car accident on January 3. We were coming home from the New Years holiday with family, when a semi truck pulled out in front of us on a four lane highway in New Mexico. We are truly blessed to survived. Seat beats and airbags save lives!!
Our daughter, Annika suffered the worst injuries with a crushed cheek bone and orbital floor. We were sent to Lubbock, TX -- the closest trauma center for almost two weeks so she could have surgery. She is doing well and back at school. She still has some swelling and will have to have another surgery in 18 months to have a check implant put in.
Give your loved ones an extra hug today!! :)
