Welcome to Georgia's Journey

Georgia Lily Lucas was born at home on October 6th, 2008 4:15am, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She was diagnosed with SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) on April 1, 2009.

On April 3rd Georgia was taken home, to be near her sisters and the rest of her family and friends. Nearly three weeks later, on April 21, 2009, she died peacefully -- in the loving arms of her mother and in the same room in which she was born.

Halloween Fun

We've been pretty busy having fun around here the last week. Calla and Maya have been so excited about Halloween. They had lots of opportunities to wear their costumes from dance class, to Boo at the Zoo, and Halloween parties. My beautiful and sweet butterfly and peacock were replaced this year with a 'Batterina' and a 'Vampiress'. Maya actually wanted to be a bat but we couldn't find a costume to fit her. The Batterina outfit seems to suit her way better anyway!

Here she is riding the carousel at Boo at the Zoo. It was actually quite chilly that night as you can see by the mitts and coat.

Decorating her princess pumpkin.

Calla wanted to decorate her pumpkin as a cat. She doesn't remember doing the same thing two years ago. Oh well!

This picture was taken just before the trick or treating began. Maya put on her butterfly costume to stay warm. She doesn't like the look of Batterina over her coat! LOL

What a difference a year makes. Last year Aria was a tiny baby in the bucket seat and this year she is walking everywhere.

Aria actually loves dressing up. Here she is wearing Calla's old peacock costume. I posted this picture because she is actually smiling. It's a hard shot to get as she normally becomes quite serious when she sees the camera.

This is Aria's offcial costume. She actually loves it and has been insisting on wearing it around the house. This picture was taken at gymnastics. Isn't my little strawberry cute?!

Happy Halloween!

Love to you all,



  1. Glad they had such a good time and they all look fantastic! Wish we lived closer and could go out together!! Love you guys, Em

  2. Great pics Kristen!

  3. Such cute kids and adorable costumes too! Yes, this year was so different with Soren too... He was right in there with the girls collecting candy when we took them trick-or-treating (though, he doesn't really eat it!) I think next year they will have a hard time keeping up with him!
