Make-A-Wish Idaho asked to use the photo of Garrett meeting Mickey from his MAW trip, and of course we said yes!!!! We were invited to join other MAW families to sit on the Idaho State Capitol steps in Boise for the Christmas Tree lighting and the kick-off of the MAW Season of Wishes campaign where Garrett's poster was displayed on the steps and then was moved into the capitol for the remainder of the Christmas season.
Garrett was SO excited to realize HE was on the poster! He did lots of hamming-up in the photos I took. Ainslee, RaeAnn and I took him, and though it was quite chilly, we had a wonderful evening, including dinner at a fabulous place! Fancy! When the festivities were over at the capitol, we drove towards home and stopped to enjoy walking along Indian Creek in Caldwell, Idaho, to see the magnificent Christmas light display. Garrett fell asleep in our bed tonight on the cozy heated mattress cover to the sound of my daily Bible reading. All-in-all a terrific day minus a few really tough breakdowns, only one really long major one....over a broken candy cane.....
Only two weeks until we travel to Seattle to see the Mito specialist, and I am excited because my mom will be joining Garrett and me...and Sammy (Garrett's Autism service dog, of course!!
Godspeed and Merry Christmas!
