Flowers for Fall

On Friday I decided to pick up some fall-colored flowers to replace the springy ones in Carleigh's vase. I wanted something a little more fitting for the season. I looked at Walmart because we were grocery shopping there and they really didn't have much but I was able to find some yellow sunflowers and some blue flowers that went pretty well together so I got those.

Today after church we went out to the cemetery so that I could put the new flowers in. It was such a nice day! Kyndra took off with Carleigh's pumpkin as I worked on changing the flowers. I think the flowers turned out pretty nice and Anthony just had to note (happily of course) that the flowers were Michigan colors. He's so silly.

Here's some pics of our visit:

The flowers are so pretty and Kyndra looks so precious in that sweet little jumper. Glad it was a sunshiny day for you to visit Carleigh.

The flowers are really lovely. I have been putting real flowers every time, but it makes me sad every time I come back and they're dead. I think the bouquet you put together is really beautiful.

The flowers are beautfiul, and Kyndra running away with Carleigh's pumpkin is such an adorable picture!!! I beleive in my heart that Carleigh watched all you did for her, and smiled brightly through the sky; which is why it was such a beautiful day. She loves her Mommy more than ever; and her Mommy is SO good to her. <3 Great job, it looks amazing <3

The flowers look great and you did a good job arranging them also. Leave it to Anthony to think of the colors. I have some fall ones here too, so when you come home you can take them back with you and you will have them. I think (at least in my own heart) God is sending us "Baby Motter" to tell us it is ok and another "Baby Haas" will soon be on its way. It still amazes me how strong you are and you are MY HERO!!!!
Love you-MOM-oxox

Those flowers are beautiful! It breaks my heart everytime I see you post about visit Carleigh at the cementary knowing that her and Sophia would be about the same age and that we should be able to experience all of the "firsts" together. You are a strong women Holly and I look up to you because of it!
