For him...

I saw the cutest little boy Christmas outfits and wanted to buy one...
I wanted to make a blue minky dot blanket to wrap him in...
Would he be scared of sitting on Santa's knee...
What would we tell Santa he wanted from him...

Instead of buying a Christmas outfit, we bought ornaments.
Instead of making him a blanket, I made him a stocking to hang and remember him by.
Instead of sitting on Santa's knee, he gets to sit on the knee of Jesus... He's not at all scared.
Instead of Christmas goodies under the tree, he has his own tree and all of his goodies are memorial items.

Sometimes it's just not enough...
I miss him...

The name of the song in the slide show is "Hug Him Once for Me".  It was written and sung by the friend of a friend who also lost a son. The singers name is Erica McClure.

Merry Christmas to ALL!

Much love,


  1. You're right...sometimes it just isn't enough. What is the name of the song you used in the slide show? It's beautiful. It made me cry, but it's beautiful. Hugs to you, my friend! ♥

  2. So True! What a beautiful song and slideshow. Big hugs!

  3. It so hard to know that it will NEVER be enough on this side of heaven.

    sending love and prayers your way and upward! :)

  4. ohh and the dang cute I can hardly breathe!

  5. Love the song! Can you imagine what Christmas in Heaven must be like?! WOW!! I am just being selfish I guess, but I sure wish Eli were here with us! Lots of love to you, sis!!! Always thinking of you- Rachel

  6. The slideshow is absolutely beautiful, I love all of the ornaments especially. And you're completely right, sometimes it just isn't enough. Thinking of you!

  7. Praying for you all daily - missing Eli, thankful He's getting to celebrate Christmas with Jesus Himself. Still - so hard. We love you. Thank you for making the slide show to share with us. Love you all!

  8. Jennifer, thank you for your prayers for my daughter Luisa. I am so grateful for the people that I am meeting via internet. You sweet, strong mothers that have been here in this rough challenging situation. Your examples and experiences strengthen me. Have a Merry Christmas!

  9. What a beautiful song. I love it.
