Kaels 5th celebration and blanket drive success!!

Well we celebrated your birthday the best that we know how :). The boys had school and Layne had to work half day so the first half of the day was spent bonding at home with Landon and Tiara. We went and picked up cupcakes and things to decorate the grave and spent lots of time playing trains, puzzles and house as Landy would call it. I sure love having these 2 to snuggle. It made me think back alot to the time we had with Kael. The things we could do with him, the things we couldn't and wish we could have. When everyone got home we loaded up the cars and headed to Primary Children's. We had another successful year totaling in with 217 blankets, 166 stuffed animals,10 burp bibs, 10 little newborn hats and 15 lovies is what we call them (the little blankets with animals attached). It was amazing once again to walk through those doors and give back just a little to the hospital that did so much for our sweet Kael. Once done there we headed to Bountiful to decorate Kaels grave. We took some pictures,said Happy Birthday and then headed on our way to Grandma R's for balloons and cupcakes. We stopped off at Zurchers the party store to get the balloons Landon was very careful in picking the color for each person to send off. Daxton and Stefon of course picked their own as well. We went over to Layne's mom's to send them off so that she could participate since she is having a hard time getting around. We all wrote our messages on them and then sent them to heaven. After that we had yummy cupcakes to end our birthday celebration. Its so hard to believe that another year has gone by. That you would be 5, and to think of all the things you would be doing. I pictured you playing trains side by side with Landon and eating that yummy cupcake. I can only imagine how amazing that would have been. I hope you had an AMAZING birthday in heaven and that you could feel all of our love. I love you to the moon and back sweet boy!!! You are our hero, our example and our reason  keep trying. We love you!!!
