"If you know someone who has lost a child or anybody who's important to them, and you're afraid to mention them because you think you might make them sad by reminding them that they died, they didn't forget they died. You're not reminding them. What you're reminding them of is that you remembered that they lived, and that's a great, great gift" - Elizabeth Edwards

"The deep hurt is the mirror image of the deep joy that still awaits you." - Bruce C. Hafen

Lionel at preschool

Yesterday we got to listen to Lionel singing with his friends at preschool. They did a great job!

Pumpkins, Pumpkins

Fun times…

Red roses

Eric surprised me with some beautiful roses the other night! 🙂

Pumpkin Patch

We went to a pumpkin patch today. It was kind of rainy in the morning but luckily the rain stopped in the afternoon so that we could go. The kids got to pick out their own pumpkin, jump in the hay, look at some animals, ride bikes and walk through a little hay maze.

Trick or Treat Street

We went to Nicolina’s elementary school tonight and the kids had a lot of fun! They had decorated the whole school, it was really cool!  I love Halloween!


Nicolina has not had school this week because of parent/teacher conferences, so today she got to go to the “Preschool games” class that Lionel goes to twice a week. Lionel was so excited to have Nicci there with him. I was able to walk around the track with Savannah and Jordan for an hour while the two older ones were in the class. When I came to pick them up I caught them holding hands during a game. So cute!

Going to the cemetery

We went to the cemetery today. It was the first time for Savannah to go there with us. We put some flowers and decorations by Oliver’s grave. I always feel very peaceful when we go there.

Merry Go Round

The kids got to go on a merry go round today and loved it of course!
