Here are the photos from fall.
|This is the vase I made for him. It says: A Life and Love Remembered... Samuel Evan 04/14/12.|
Here is how it looks now:
|The tree is covered in sparkles and diamond-looking gems. I love it because diamond is his birthstone and it's so pretty when the light from his memorial candle shines on it.|
|The frame is a gift from my friend Jaimi. It says, "Samuel Evan, April 14th, 2012". The ornament is from last year. It says, "baby's 1st Christmas" I still love it, even though this is his 2nd Christmas.|
|This is the holiday butterfly from Carly Marie, the bunny from Erin, and the heart ornament I made for him.|
|I wish you could really see this! It has blue and clear crystals that sparkle and diamond looking jewels all over it.|
Every year we've been together, Bryan and I get a special ornament that speaks to what's going on in our lives at the time. It went from first Christmas together, to new house, to so happy, and then ready to grow our family. This year, we didn't want to skip the tradition, but didn't really know what to get.
I finally found one that's perfect.
|I love it because the bears actually look sad and that's how we feel.|
Finally, here is the holiday card/birth announcement we sent out this year. I wasn't going to send anything, but I realized he deserves a birth announcement just like every other baby. My friend Adrienne - who is awesome at doing things like this - made it for us and I love it <3.
