Memorial Day

Today was a blast! Ellie, Shannon, Ruth Ann, mom, and I went out for a girl's day.  Today was mom's ...birthday so we did a little shopping.  One of my latest projects it to make flower arrangements for my brother Tye's wedding.  We finally found the right flowers, now I just have to make them look beautiful in a tin can, lol.  It sounds unique, but it looks really pretty.  So after a stop to Garden Ridge, we went to TJ Max, one of my favorite places!  I tried on a few swimsuits, and finally picked a solid black one.  I must mention, I don't enjoy swimsuit shopping.  Its been five years since I've tried one on.  While venturing through the store, Ellie discovered a pack of baby bottles.  She is so fascinated, or should I say obsessed with baby things.  While I was looking through the toddler clothes, she discovered how take the bottle apart and play with it.  I quickly told her to put it back in the box.  She replied, "Mommy, I want to get this for Grayson.  Can we come back and get it for him another day? We need to tell Jesus to come to the hospital and take the bottle to Heaven with Him." I know it sounds like I'm exaggerating but I'm not.  She talks about her brother all the time, and many times, its' all I can do to keep from crying.  It's bittersweet.  We went to a few other places and finally stopped at Michaels to pick out some flowers for Grayson's vase.  We chose red, white, and blue carnations and some really cute sparkly sticks with flags.  The bouqet was perfect for my perfect little angel.  This memorial day was one I'll never forget I'm sure. We made memories that will last a life time. We will never forget.


  1. Hi Heather,
    To express my admiration to you and your braveness, I have nominated you for a Sunshine Award. Please pick up your award @ http://theseamanmom.blogspot.com/2012/05/sunshine-award.html

    Many hugs

  2. Heather, I have been touched by your story. You are truly an amazing woman and an awesome mother! I would like to thank you for sharing Grayson with us. He is a lucky little boy to be loved by such a wonderful family!

    In memory of Grayson, I would like to make a donation to the March of Dimes to go towards their research of neural tube defects, if you don't mind. I had been participating in their annual March for Babies because my twin girls were born premature, but your story has renewed my commitment to MOD. Hopefully one day soon they will be able to figure out why anencephaly occurs and how to prevent it.

    I will keep you and your family in my prayers. God bless you.
