Christmas Day

I wasn't sure how Christmas was going to go this year but so far it's been good. I think it helped that my hubby surprised me with something special. Christmas Day was spent with my family at my mom and dad's house. The girls (Kyndra and my niece Audrey) kept things entertaining for us all.

Carleigh actually received a gift! It was from my grandma, my Uncle Buck & Aunt Backy, and my Uncle Doug & Aunt Sherry. It is a beautiful soft, pink blanket with her name and birth date on it. It's hung on a cute wooden hanger. It was so nice that she was remembered!



I was going to light a candle for her but I totally forgot. I actually don't feel bad about that either. I know that Carleigh is happy that I enjoyed being with everyone. She knows she's always in my heart and I thought of her often but I just didn't remember to light that dang candle! Oh well!!

Merry Christmas Carleigh! I know that you are enjoying your first Christmas with Jesus. Mommy can only imagine how glorious it all is. Missing you and loving you always, my little star!

Very pretty. It's also nice that she received a gift. I'm a little jealous our family didn't think about anything for our little guy.

How incredibly thoughtful of your family to remember Carleigh.

It's heart warming to know you didn't fault yourself for not lighting her candle, but found comfort in knowing Carleigh is in the eternal loving arms of Jesus. And, yes, she wanted her Mommy to enjoy the day in her honor :)

Hugs and Love,
Andrea

Happy Late Christmas, Holly. The blanket is so cute and the embroidered detail is so sweet. I looked back for the gift from Anthony, the pendant addition with Carleigh's handprint will be so perfect to complete your necklace. What a sweet husband to surprise you with that!

I truly hope that God gave you peace this Christmas and will start this coming year off with positive thoughts and STRONG pregnancy vibes :)
