Christmas Morning

Some highlights of Christmas 2008....

Opening gifts:

German Pancakes for breakfast:


And, finally, one of the sweetest moments of our Christmas morning. It rained non-stop the week before Christmas. Since I've been sick all week, and with the rain, we haven't been riding to the cemetery. We were happy to wake up to the sun shining on Christmas morning, and decided that after the morning activities we would leisurely ride over to the cemetery. There, we found that someone had left a Christmas card at the twins' gravesite.

So sweet.

So precious.

We were so touched. I don't quite know how to explain what it means to know that there are people out there who would have loved our girls so much, had they had a chance to live a little longer... people who love them even without having had a chance to meet them. Moments like this make this mother's heart so tender.

I love the photos of the cats birdwatching! Mine used to do that too, to the point of destroying the blinds! Attila even "barked" at them!

I'm so glad someone did that for you. It's truly amazing how much that can touch a grieving mom's heart. I can't wait to meet you someday. I also can't wait to watch you raise your girls while I raise Wyatt in the Millenium. That will be a an amazing day when our arms will be full and the emptiness and aching will be gone. What a wonderful time for both of us. I think you are amazing!

Merry Christmas, Marc and Megan - and Happy New Year! To answer your comment on my blog:

It IS crazy to see where we were a year ago. We've covered all parts of the spectrum since then, haven't we? My thoughts and prayers are always and forever with you and Marc, and I feel that we've become such dear friends, too. I would absolutely love to meet up someday.

Here's hoping that the upcoming year has sweet surprises for both of us. I just love ya Megan.

Hugs from afar, Amy

PS - Holy Heavenly Pancakes! I've never had German type - they look awesome!

I don't have to tell you how loved you are! It is obvious from the comments left on your blog by both strangers and loved ones!

Of course everyone loves your little girls, if they came from you and Marc then we all wanted to know them, to love them, and to be near them. You guys radiate a light that warms everyone around you. All my love!
