We set up Lilas Christmas tree at the cemetery. Last year we got so many great ornaments and we hope that we get some more to add to her collection this year. It's such a wonderful way to remember her during the holidays which can be so hard without her. I loved lean with Lila under the Christmas tree and watching the twinkling lights. There's nothing more peaceful. I hope she likes her tree at the cemetery

It's the end of an era. My parents bought timeshares up in Park city when I was in high school and I've had so many wonderful memories up here. From BBQs, to watching the Fourth of July parade on Main Street and fireworks, swimming, taking dates up, sleepovers with friends, walking Main Street, shopping, staying up late talking, the one time Mikey stole all my friends phones and took pictures of himself and friends , bringing all my "girls" up, watching Quinn dance with The drunk crowd during street concerts, it had been amazing.
I have been so touched by all the love that we have received after Edison was born. Lots of meals, gifts and visits came our way. It means so much to us.
My activity day girls made us this gorgeous quilt. It has the girls names stitched into it. Such a treasure. We are truly blessed with dear friends and support.

Ruby is starting to warm to Eddie. She asks to hold him and she will bring him his binky. There is hope! Maybe these two will actually be friends some day. It melts my heart to see these two together. I just love them to pieces.
I have been starting to wonder if Ruby is truly seeing Lila. The other day she ran from room to room giggling and yelling "where are you Lila?" Every morning she tells me dreamt about Lila and Jesus and just yesterday she pointed to the ceiling and said "Lila had to go" Quinn said "was she just here?" And Ruby said "yes." She talks about her in normal conversation and tells me how pretty her dress is and cute she is. At first I thought it was just in reaction to us talking about her but now I wonder how much Lila is in our home and playing with her sister. I pray that that special relationship can last.
Ruby running as fast as she can to Lila at the cemetery. She always yells, "where are you Lila!? Oh there you are! So good to see you! Love you! " it's the sweetest
