Christmas 2010

Christmas went pretty well this year. As usual, the anticipation was worse. After work on Christmas Eve I stopped by the florist and picked up some balloons for us to release on Christmas. I got 3 purple for Carleigh and 3 yellow for Jordan. I was disappointed when the next morning one yellow and one purple were a little deflated. They should’ve held up longer than that, but I was at least glad that the remaining 4 were still floating.

We woke up Christmas morning and ate breakfast and opened presents. Then we all got dressed and went to the cemetery to release the balloons. I brought some of Carleigh’s cards that were left over from her party for us to write notes on to send up with the balloons. I wanted to let Kyndra release the balloons but she was off playing in the snow and wouldn’t come over by me so I released them myself. They slowly floated away.

It was kinda chilly out so as soon as the balloons were released we packed the kids back up in the van. Then I took a few moments by myself at her grave before we left.

And of course I had Anthony take photos of it all. Here are some of them.
