Liv's Birthday: Part Two...

Man...between staying longer in SC, the trip back, and now my parents' visit, I have yet to really get back online. However, with James back to work this morning and my parents in the other room getting ready for the day, I figured I'd jump on real quick and catch up a little...

So going back to Olivia's 1st Birthday In Heaven...

Not only did she receive a balloon release in Indy, but she also received one in WA!!! I was not expecting it, and they didn't tell me about it before the day that it happened, so it was a wonderful surprise! A few of our friends from our last home met up and released balloons in Liv's honor at the park, then went back to the house and ate some cake in Liv's honor. So, so sweet of them! It means so much to me to know that there are so many people honoring and remembering Livy on her day. If it's one thing that we cherish the most, it's knowing that Liv's short life is being remembered by those around us. Thank you, dear friends!!!

Here are some pictures from the event in WA...

Remembering Liv on her day...


I can't thank everyone enough for all that they did on our baby girl's birthday! It means so much to us! To top off her special day, when we got home from SC, there was a card in the mail from some of our best friends back in Indy. It was for Liv's Birthday, and reminded us that they are remembering Liv, too, on her day. So sweet!!! We will forever cherish that card, as well as the pictures from this day. Thank you, everyone, for all that you did! We will never forget it...
