I am a little late on a lot of these post but oh well :) Christmas this year was great. My family we had Christmas before Jason and Britney headed off to Wisconsin. Burke got a prayer time board book and a baby bible board book too. I was really hoping for those. One thing that I loved is that my family made a donation to Mamie's Poppy Plates in Mamie's memory. That meant a lot opening a gift to Mamie and just knowing they haven't forgotten.
On Christmas morning Taylor and I got up and had a nice breakfast before Burkie work up. Santa brought him a rocking frog that plays music. He was pretty interested in it but really liked the wrapping paper much better. I was super pumped about my gift. I got a Ninja :) for those of you that don't know about the Ninja go check it out. I have found someway to use that thing pretty much everyday in the kitchen. It is super awesome for making baby food.
We went to Hot Springs to have Christmas with Taylor's family later that day. We had a huge dinner and then opened presents. Burke got some books, a cute onsie and a few toys. Just what he needed. A few things really go a long way :)
This is the ornament Meredith and Patrick sent us for Mamie. I love it and will always look at it and think of their sweet Miller and Mamie being in heaven together.
Every year Taylor gets me ornaments. For those of you that don't know me. I LOVE ornaments and I like to put the name of the person who gave it to me as well as the year on it. It is so fun every year to hang them and remember back at who gave them to me. Anyway we decided this year we would do one for Burke and one for Mamie. Aren't they adorable :)
This cross ornament is what we got at the Journey memorial service that we go to every November. I will be blogging pics from that hopefully soon. I thought it looked perfect hanging on Mamie's book that a friend made us.
Here is the Ninja!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
On our ride to Hot Springs I thought a lot about Mamie but also all the other babies that have passed. This Christmas was Meredith and Patrick's first Christmas without little Miller. It hurt my heart to think about how they were feeling. When I looked up at the sky I saw this M in the clouds. I had to send it to Meredith. It was perfect. Mamie and Miller were sending me a sign and I had to share it with her.
Cooper, Hayden, Jackson and Brayden put on a show for us before we opened gifts. They sang, danced and rocked out on their guitar.
Burke was so tired on the way home. When I opened the car door this is how I found him. Is that not hilarious.
