This Thanksgiving we were in Wenatchee, and one of Eric's moms friends has a vinyl lettering business. I had been wanting to get lettering on our wall for a while, but since we have been moving yearly, I hadn't done it. With this last move, we knew we would be in Seattle for almost 3 years. I figured that was enough time in our house to make it worth having the lettering done. Anyways, I picked up the lettering while we were there for Thanksgiving and put it on our wall right before we had our family pictures done. I had our last name with Families Are Forever (see on the wall above the fireplace in picture above). It is pretty amazing how comforting those words are to us are now. I'm so grateful to have that constant reminder on our wall.
Andrew had the same look on his face in all of the family pictures. He wasn't sure what was going on.
I found some more pictures that were on my mom's computer of Andrew.
I am so grateful for the chance that I had to be this perfect little boys mom. He's so special.

I had never seen this picture. Andrew is smiling. He is so cute! I miss him!
Our niece was getting baptized in Coeur d'Alene this weekend, so we gave Eric some good study time and headed towards Spokane. We decided to spend a few days in Wenatchee with Eric's family on our way. We were able to stop by Andrew's grave a few times. They aren't able to set a headstone till the spring, so the only way we knew where Andrew's grave was because we found his binky(pacifier) that Aubree had left for him when we'd visited right after his funeral. We cleaned up all of the old flowers and got a flower windmill that would last better than fresh flowers in the winter. We also got a balloon from each kid that they would "give" to Andrew.
