Christmas memorial

Life has been crazy the last 2+ weeks. We all had to stop though and take pause when the Connecticut shootings happened. We all hugged our children and cried many tears. We pray for the families as they struggle to get through this Christmas season and we paid tribute to the 26 following our Christmas Eve Candlelight service.

The clouds cleared and the moon shone bright.

We lit and released 28 balloons. 26 for Connecticut, 1 for 2 local missing children and 1 for children of violent crimes. It was a fitting tribute to our service.

Each name was read and the church bell rung as each balloon lifted off.

It was an amazing sight as they all floated away.

Ryan-Cake Smash!

I have been wanting to do a cake smash in forever. Ryan finally turned 1 and we had a blast. Funny how kids usually have no problems getting dirty...he really wanted nothing to do with the cake. And unfortunately for momma, he liked to walk to her with the bright blue icing. :) Next time I will offer the high chair as an option to try to contain the "walkers". ;)
