We traveled home (Texas) in late September and were there for two weeks. We had a blast, and the kids really enjoyed seeing all of my family, extended family, and our amazing friends. We really miss being at home, and it was great to see everyone since it had been a year since we had been back.

The kids had fun, we went to the TX State Fair (a whole new post will be done about that with pictures), had cousin time, cousin dinner, and if you ask the kids they'll tell you 'Mommy got old.' I had my birthday while we were there and it was fabulous. They spent a lot of time with their grandparents on my side, as well as all of my brothers and sister and nieces and nephews.

I'll keep this post short, as we are still un-packing and doing laundry. Oy Vey. We're all still adjusting to the time change and back to our normal routine of work and school. Below are some pictures we had taken of the kids while we were in Dallas. They are definitely looking so old to me now, Emeline no longer has that 'baby look.'

Emeline being silly, which is my favorite side of her. 

Landon insisted on wearing his Neet Feet for the photo shoot. He loved sitting in this window sill, and was a total ham for the camera. 

Pretty Girl. 

They play so well together, and are really quite close. I love capturing pictures of them in their 'natural' ways of interacting with each other. 

One of my all time favorite pictures of Landon and I. It really shows the depth of the bond that he and I have. We really have been through so much together with his Mito and other aspects of life.

  1. Hello Regan,

    I am currently a student at the University of Georgia studying Genetics and I, like your son, have mitochondrial disease. I knew as well as you that once this disease touched my life that I wanted to take a stand and fight back. I work for the Foundation of Mitochondrial Medicine, an organization that aims to spread awareness and fund research concerning mitochondrial and related diseases.

    We would be interested in connecting with your organization in a way that would be mutually beneficial. We have articles and information about mitochondrial disease research that would be relevant to you and your audience (http://mitochondrialdiseases.org/mitochondrial-disease-research/).

    Thank you so much for your time,

    Amanda Cameron
