I just wanted to thank everyone for their kind and encouraging words regarding my recent posts about trying again and feeling the Christmas blues. I appreciate all the comments and look forward to reading them. It's kind of odd that I get more support here on the computer than I do in real life. So, thank you (and I'm sorry for making any of you cry- that was not my intention at all.)
"Thank Heaven for little boys"
These are sterling silver ornaments that have their name and birth date engraved on them.
These are hand painted porcelain discs painted by a friend of mine especially for my little angels. On the back is all their birth information. The one on the left is for Sam and the right one is for Jack.
The remembrance ornaments I got for each of the boys.
The letter "S" with cookie monster and my little "Jack" hammer.
An angel of happiness with blue and green crayons (I have a red and yellow one, too). A star also from Santa Fe, a Pooh snow globe that lights up (I also have a Tigger) and a glittery star burst that my in-laws gave us "in light of Baby Sam".
A jingle bell reindeer and an angel I got for Sam last year rest at the base of the tree on top of my favorite penguin blanket.
And lastly, this is our mantle for our family of 5 (Dad, Mom, Autumn, Sam and Jack). I guess now, I have to get one for August. Maybe I'll just get a little one and hang it on his cage with a carrot in it :)
ETA: And one more!For my "Jack" -in -the-box
