Mamie's Celebration Dinner

Taylor and I spent Mamie's year weekend over in Hot Springs. We wanted to spend time together just the two of us. We stayed at the Arlington thanks to our good friends Ashley and Dustin, and we ate yummy food thanks to Patrick, Meredith, Britney, Jason, Mom and Dad. We are so thankful for the love and thoughtfulness people have shown us throughout this whole past year.

That Sunday we had close friends and family come over for a birthday celebration in honor of Mamie. It was perfect. Britney and I made flower arrangements out of herbs from our garden and bright colored zinnia's. We wanted it to be simple but sweet. Jacquelyn and Jeremy from Palette Catering helped us out with the food and it was AMAZING. For the cake I wanted it to be simple with poppy flowers on it. D. from our church did exactly what I wanted and I can't wait for yall to see the pics. She put my Mamie tattoo on top and it was just perfect. We also ordered 40 balloons and after Taylor said a little speech for the both of us, I was way too emotional to talk, we all released the balloons again for Mamie. The whole night was full of laughter, love and memories. Just the way we wanted it to be. We wanted to celebrate Mamie and that is just what we did. Amanda was so sweet to snap some pictures for me. Thanks girlie and thanks to everyone that helped out with the party.

  7. wow sarah, these are amazing pictures. what a cool idea and a beautiful way to remember and honor sweet Mamie.

  8. Sarah,
    All I can say is....amazing! I am so moved and inspired everytime I read your blog. I have often prayed for you and Taylor and will continue to do so. You left an impression on me when we met at Journey in January that i have not forgotten. It has been 8 1/2 months since losing our son Brodie and some days the pain is just as fresh as the day he died. This road we are on as bereaved moms is truly a difficult one. I often feel like we're in a club that you really wish yourself or others weren't members of. I know Mamie had a happy and blessed birthday in heaven. And,I pray for continued peace for you and Taylor.

Choroid Plexus Cyst (CPC) & Hydronephrosis

I have heard from many of your wondering what exactly these markers are and what could they mean. We received an information sheet from our genetics doctor that I can't seem to upload but I found this write up and thought I would share. The Choroid Plexus and Choroid Plexus CystsThe choroid plexus is an area of the brain that makes cerebrospinal fluid. Cerebrospinal fluid is the substance that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The choroid plexus is not an area of the brain involved in thinking. Choroid plexus cysts are fluid-filled spaces in the choroid plexus kind of like blisters or bubbles. Choroid plexus cysts are not tumors or cancer, and they will disappear on their own usually between 24 to 26 weeks of pregnancy. Choroid plexus cysts, in and of themselves, are NOT a problem and do not interfere with brain function.They are seen in about 1% (1/100) of all second trimester ultrasounds. Choroid plexus cysts may be seen in one or both sides of the brain and the number, size…

Burke is 3!!!!!

Okay I have decided that time is going by way too fast.  Burke just turned 3 the beginning of June!  I can not believe it.  I feel like just yesterday I was in the hospital having the little guy!  We had a fun small family party and he is loving some super hero's right now so that was the theme :)  Silas really wanted to jump out when he walked in and yell surprise so that is what we did :)  Burke is super shy and he really wasn't a fan of it all.  Pibby and Pops got him his first bike and it is SO cute.   I picked up a balloon for all the kids and one special spider man one for Boo.  He has always loved balloons.  He said the sweetest thing....... he wanted to let his balloons go up to Mamie so she would know that it was his birthday.  I couldn't believe he let his special Spider Man one go.  It made me want to cry.  She should be here with us.  ANYWAYS, it was a fun day and I got some pictures of course and a few videos.  Happy 3rd Birthday Burkie BOO!  We love you so so…


Burke and Winnie just finished their first Vacation Bible School and they had a blast.  I did as well :)  I got to help in Burkes class which is always really interesting.  There were about 20 3yr olds in there so it was WILD :)  It was a fun 3 days of learning about how God is our light.  We sang "This little light of mine" everyday and Winnie is trying so hard to sing it.  She walks around the house with her little pointer finger up mumbling.  I love it.
