How did we spend April 27, 2013..... How does a family spend a day that will forever be frozen in time as a day to remember a sweet baby became a angel???
For starters Paul and I took Anna to her Soccer game bright and early. As we got to the game, Paul and I were both hungry, we didn't grab breakfast. So, I left them at the game to go get doughnuts for us. I knew what day I had waken to that morning. On my drive alone I had my tears fall, missing our baby boy that left us to soon. I did return to the soccer game with doughnuts to share. After the game Paul, Anna and I returned home to work on clean up.
That afternoon, Anna and a sweet neighbor had planned a baby shower for this new baby. There was a wonderful turn out of Church friends, neighbors and Pauls Mom and Sister came. It tickled my heart to see Anna so happy that the party she helped plan was such a great success! Thank yo to so many who gave us such wonderful gifts and support! I am so blessed to have such wonderful people around our family. I had such a good time visiting I forgot to take pictures...oops
After the Baby Shower we then went to the cemetery as a family. We got balloons on the way to the cemetery. I noticed some reactions from some people while Paul walked out of the store with the huge amount of balloons in hand. I saw people pointing at Paul and smiling. The thought occurred to me would they still be smiling if they knew we were going to release the balloons to our son who passed away???
|Anna didnt like it when the balloons would pop by her.|
Having the baby shower today was a little tough but, I did it!!! I felt a little guilty at times today celebrating a new baby while it is AJ's angel day.
I/WE will forever Love you our First Born Son and Brother!!
