While his Dad slept in, my son and I went to McDonald's for breakfast. We donated to the Ronald McDonald House and filled out papers with the girls' names on them to hang on the wall in their memory.
Then we went home to wake up Dad and my son made my day! He's getting so big now and understands that Angel Days make me sad because I miss the girls (I cry a lot) and this year he made us all presents. So the first thing we did was open his presents. He had one for Dad, one for me, one for "BreeL and Cloee" and of course one for himself. He had given us some of his own toys and each of us a drawn picture :) He opened the one for Bree and Chloee since "they can't open it."
Then of course we ate - what we usually do to combat the pain - stuff ourselves with mind numbing food. And donated all of our cash to the donation box at the restaurant for a local girl who is fighting cancer.
Then we took Tyson to a Bounce House place to play and just enjoyed every minute of him. And we did a balloon release for her too.
That night, while the boys played the PS3, I finished up the kit I made in loving memory of her. The pages above all use the new kit.
I knew I wanted to do a bumblebee kit. Bree-Elle was first nicknamed BumbleBree by her aunt Natalie, my sister. It caught on and soon became "BumBum" and Bees became a part of who she was/is. She was a bumblebee for Halloween and now we decorate her grave and things with bees. So when I thought about bees, Winnie the Pooh Bear came to mind. I love PoohBear and have used many of his quotes in our home and in scrapbook pages. And so that's what I made!
Here are my Disney pages I scrapped with it of my little boy when he was a baby:
Here is my kit in memory of my daughter Bree-Elle called "BumbleBree". It's my favorite kit I've done so far. Very bright and colorful, heavenlike, and meaningful to me. I hope you like it and can use it :)
