Birthday Bash 2011

We had a birthday party as a family yesterday for Carter. It was so peaceful and great! We all got together and went to Texas roadhouse for dinner then on the the cemetery for singing and to let off our memorial balloons. We both so enjoyed doing this and being together as a family on this day. It was a great way to end the day! Thanks family for coming and helping us celebrate baby C's life! We love you all!
His grave all decorated.

Family again.
getting ready to send them off.



When we got to the cemetery this little toy was sitting on his grave with a sweet little note and a beautiful card from our AMAZING NICU nurses! They are all truly God sent for us! They too had sent off balloons in honor of our baby boy earlier that day! Thank You ladies! You really mean so much to both Mike and I! We love you!
Carters gift from the NICU ladies.
It was a great day to think back on our memories we have of this sweet baby!
We can't wait to do this each and every year, and someday include our future children and teach them about the person there BIG brother was/is!
