This past Saturday was Mamie's 2nd birthday in Heaven. I can't believe it has already been 2 years. Where has the time gone. I remember that day like it was yesterday and I think I will for the rest of my life. The days leading up were the worst as usual. I do feel very blessed that God decided to bring Burke to us just in time for her birthday. Being able to look at his sweet face calmed my nerves and warmed my heart. He is part of her and that makes thing a little sweeter. Taylor and I met my family and Amanda (who is practically family) down at the cemetery. It was a beautiful day and the wind was blowing her chime. The sound was so beautiful. As soon as Silas got there he had to show Taylor and I the card he made for Mamie to send up to her in Heaven. He amazes me at how connected he is to her. We released balloons and then headed to the house for cake and coffee. It was a lovely morning and am so thankful that we have so many loving friends and family. I have a awesome post coming up that my sister set up. People all over the world sent Taylor and I signs saying Mamie on them. They began coming in first thing Saturday morning and kept coming till Sunday morning. It was awesome!
Mamie, we love you so so SO very much and miss you like crazy. We hope you had a wonderful birthday in Heaven. Love you baby.
I was so glad that Amanda wanted to come and celebrate with us. She is such an amazing person and friend.
A friend of Jason's at work painted this footprint picture with Mamie's name written in it. I LOVE it!
Silas wrote Mamie a note that he tied to his balloon to send up to her in Heaven. He is such a sweet little boy.
Thank you Judy Adams for the beautiful birthday cake for Mamie. It was SO yummy!
