I love my K

Today, I said, "K, why are you so beautiful." She looked at me and simply said, "Because I AM a princess." So, I said, "And whose princess are you?" She said, "Mommy, Daddy, Mallory (her cousin), and God's princess." I hope she always remembers the most important one of those things. She truly is God's little princess...and I really do think she is beautiful. Not just on the outside, but her little heart holds so much love for others. She is growing into a lovely young lady.

If You Give C a Birthday Party...

He is going to want a carnival...
And if he has a carnival, he will want to invite some friends.
And when his friends arrive at the party, they will want to play some games. And if they play games, they will think they need a prize. And when they get a prize, that will remind them that they worked up an appetite.
So, C and his friends will need to visit the concession stand.
After getting a snack at the concession stand, C and his friends will have more energy.
When they have more energy, they will see a pinata that needs to be busted. When they bust the pinata, they will run around and gather the candy. The candy will taste sweet, and it will remind them of a very yummy part of the carnival party...
Carnival cake.
And then, when it is all over...C will sit back and THAT was a birthday party. Our big man turned six last month. He is an incredible blessing to our family...he blesses my heart daily. I am so proud of the little man that he has become...he loves the Lord, his family, his friends, learning, playing, and just being himself. He has always been an amazing child, and this year has been no exception. Love you, much more than you know.

Still here...

Still here. Still hurting. Still missing our baby. Still wishing. Still remembering and loving him. (balloon release pic)
But life is still happening...and there are still smiles and laughs amongst some tears. We have kept ourselves busy with some very important my big boy turning six years old, Christmas, seeing family and friends, etc. So, we are making it...sometimes a little more gracefully than other times. We love all of you so much. So many people have taken time out of their lives to love us, serve us, help us and just be here. We are so grateful... We are also thankful that we have had these couple of weeks during the holiday to be together as a family. Hubs is has been such a gift to have him here. I will miss him so so much when he goes back to work next week. (reading the story of Jesus' birth on Christmas Eve)
I promise to update much more very soon. I will back track and report on the past few weeks' adventures. Thanks again for praying for our family and loving on us so much this past month.
