Her face when we told her...

We got a very exciting phone call this morning from the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Our Graci Kate is going to be granted a wish!! We are beyond grateful and so very excited!!! She is more than deserving, and it has been so much fun to watch her giddiness all night!! Graci will be going to the Wish Room in SLC, where they will play the "wishing game" with her to try and find out what she would most love. Jer and I get to help narrow her wishes to her top three, and then they will choose which wish to grant. It is all so magical!!!

So we were trying to explain this all to Graci, and asked her what she would like the most-- just to get her thinking. Her first answer was "poofy dresses." (: We told her she could think even bigger than that!! It was so cute to hear the things that would make her happy. At one point I asked, "If you could meet anyone in the world, who would it be?" Her answer-- "Jesus." (:

After talking about Disneyworld, Chinese lessons, all the Thai food she could eat, and seeing Stitch (from Lilo and Stitch) she finally said, "I've narrowed it down to two: a Disney cruise or a Webkinz!" For those of you that don't know, a Webkinz is a little stuffed animal. We got a good laugh out of that.

I am so beyond grateful to the wonderful people at Make-a-Wish and to all those who have donated to their cause. Watching her lit up like the sun all night has been so good for us!!! We are so excited to see what her dreams bring her and to watch one of her wished granted!!!

Thank-you, Make-a-Wish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
