BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS!

The Rixmann family, who I met at Children's, came to visit me and Mighty Max this weekend...so wonderful to see them! Their amazing, talented and beautiful son, Timmy, passed away after a difficult battle with cancer. His room was right next to Max's during part of Max's ICU stay. And they were at his bedside 24/7, so we definitely saw a lot of each other. His parents are terrific and brought me much comfort and spiritual support during our hospital stay and even still today! And their fabulous children always made me smile at the hospital...full of such joy, craziness, and spirit!

Leah is starting a photography business and snapped a few photos of my very favorite subject, Mighty Maxwell, during their visit. It was such a beautiful day, so while their kids enjoyed the playground behind my house (how incredibly convenient is that???), we did a mini photo shoot. ENJOY!!! And thanks again Leah...I love these photos! :)

Oh and I have to share how funny it was when Leah first went to take a photo of Maxwell. He immediately smiled for her...she started laughing and said you're right, he is a ham! Very funny! He definitely loves to have his picture taken! And rightly so, he is GORGEOUS! :)
