Hello friends,

I came across a beautiful website where we can light candles for our lost loved ones.  Here's a link to the candles that have been lit so far today for my really warms my heart.  Everyone can set-up a page for family & friends to light a candles for their children.

WOW Annie!!  Your "purple christmas tree" story gave me such goosebumps I just HAD to respond !!  Those types of "coincidences" only assure me that someone's dreams about our lost loved ones are not just dreams, but a taste of where our kids are & assurance that they're ok.

As for your "over-staying" guests, I don't know how you held on as long as you did but am so happy you finally have your home & your hubby back!  I had a similiar experience years ago when my friend moved out here with her 3 boys & her mother needing a place to stay for just a "week or so".... well, it turned in to months & really hurt our friendship when I had to tell her to find somewhere else since my family was suffering.  You are a such a kind, caring person to have taken them in, I hope one day they'll re-pay your kindness.

Thanks for sharing Annie ... you made my day!!

Everyone's special memories are wonderful!!  I wish I had written down EVERY moment of Landon's so that I hadn't forgotten so many special little times.   :-\

I remember my Landon & his younger brother were about 1-1/2 & 2-1/2 years old (yes, they were close in age!!), they would always dress up in their big sister's dance outfits and parade around the house.  On one occasion, Landon & Christian dressed-up and their sister Lyndsay put wigs on them and held a "dance recital" in the living room!!  I was laughing so hard I almost peed my pants!!  Lyndsay spoke in with an English accent and nicknamed each of them "Mary" & "Elizabeth" as they danced to the music "Titanic".   ha ha ha     I still have this on video and took pictures that make me laugh to this day .... how I miss the bond Landon & Christian shared.  Thank you for making me smile today.....

Hello Everyone,

Thank you so much for all your prayers and thoughts for my family these past few days, it has truly helped me so much!

We made it through graduation, it was an outdoor ceremony and almost rained-out so I was more focused on hoping the kids would be able to cross the floor without getting poured on, and before I knew it, it was all done and not a tear was shed!  I was so proud of him and he looked so happy when we went down to congratulate him.

Landon's 2nd angel day was yesterday, once again the time leading up to the day seems to be harder than the actual day.  The kids and I went up the canyon (one of Landon's favorite spots) as we did last year and let balloons go for him.  Christian picked the colors, yellow & green for Landon's favorite team, the Packers.  We watched them as far as we could see them, and then I lost it.  I was doing so well (I thought) for the kids, holding myself together, but BAM, it just hits like a freight train and it took me most the evening to calm down enough to visit with the kids. 

I just wanted to thank you all again, your prayers were heard, and I know it was what got me through this weekend.  I took some pics of Bryan's graduation I thought my friends would like, and a couple of Landon's angel day.

Again, thank you dear friends.....

Hello friends,

It's been awhile since I've posted, still plugging along in my life as it is now without our Landon in our midst.  Tonight will be my oldest son's graduation, an event I should be looking forward to but having so many mixed emotions about it all, and so wishing to God that Landon could be here to enjoy it with us.  I look at my daughter's graduation pictures, how much fun we all had with everyone there, all my kids and family.  Tonight will be so hard to keep a smile on my face but I know I have to.... my son has been struggling as well, doesn't talk much but I see it in his eyes.  He's losing his friends as he's graduating, will miss not having Landon to enjoy his day, and having to face Landon's 2nd angel date only two days away, June 1st.  I know we'll be able to make it through, we've been through so much and this will just be another damn hurdle that we'll have to get over that we don't want to have to.  I just wanted to ask for everyone's prayers tonight for my son Bryan and for Monday, June 1st for the 2nd anniversary of my precious Landon's angel date.  I miss him so much.

Thank you all,

(from left, Landon, Christian, cousin Logan & Bryan @ my daughter's graduation 2006)
