I haven't had the chance to post yet about Christmas. Chad and I went home to visit my family for Christmas. Which was so great. I didn't want to be anywhere else (well besides with my boys, but that is not possible). It was difficult knowing that Parker and Gavin were missing. Instead of Chad and I each holding a baby, I held my two year old cousin while she opened her gifts. That will be the hardest part of everything I do, knowing that something is missing. That sting will always be with me.

On the other hand, I did get some gifts in remembrance of Gavin and Parker. We got some ornaments and a solar powered cross to put at their grave. It was nice for people to acknowledge my pain.

Here is the tree that we put up for Parker and Gavin.

We also had Christmas cards done. I didn't know if I wanted to do them at first, but then I had to let everyone know that Gavin and Parker are still very much apart of of lives. Chad and I are holding their bears and blue flowers. I had four, two white and two blue, but you can only see three. Then we decided to only have the flowers in color so we colored all of them blue. Then on the back, we have a picture of just the bears and flowers.


  1. So happy Gavin and Parker were remembered during Christmas. I love their ornaments!

  2. Very nice idea with the cards! And I love the tree <3

  3. Glad you were able to keep the boys close to your heart throughout the holidays. I love the cards you made. Hang in there.

  4. What a great idea with the cards! How nice that your family was okay enough to acknowledge the boys and get you gifts in remembrance of them.
