The party heard 'round the world...

What a 1st birthday party our girl had! This past week has been emotionally draining...I have wept and longed for my baby girl more this week than since losing her. BUT...I thank you for giving me a reason to smile...knowing her life was celebrated all across this beautiful country! I have put together a montage of the precious photos you have shared with our family. I have yet to upload our own family pictures (Go ahead and call me lazy! We did head out of town for a few days and I have been avoiding anything that causes my mind to think lately.) but I will work on those tonight for you all to see also! Annabelle's birthday was beautiful...thank you for sharing it with us and with your own children!

Blessing upon blessing to you for the gifts you given us~ Rebecca

I can't imagine how tough this week has been. I totally forgot to email you the pics that we took. We sent some balloons to heaven on Saturday at Owen's birthday Party for Annabelle and had a special pink slice of cake for her on their actual birthday. Then Owen tossed the whole cake on the floor (sorry Annabelle, it's what boys do).

I'm glad you had a good celebration. I pray for you all everyday!

Hugs,
Andrea

Rebecca,

Thanks for sharing the "party heard 'round the world" with us. We so enjoyed making cupcakes and sending balloons off to heaven.

Sorry we missed you on 7C last week.
Ann said you and Scott had just left.
You are amazing and are doing such a wonderful job with Annabelle's ministry.

God loves you and so do we.....

Oh sweetie I just crued my way through that. What a amazing testimony that is to Annabelle and to you for keeping her alive through all of us.

I'm praying for you.
