Its been quite a weekend. We have been pretty busy with birthday parties and planning our fall outings. We are trying to plan a trip to the pumpkin patch this week before all the pumpkins are gone! It's another one of those things I am finding myself having to do so very often. We are making a new memory and trying to figure out a good way to keep the happy one from last year stuck in our hearts forever! We are missing him more and more as the days wear on. Last year at this time we were blissfully happy! We had not a care in the world and all of our dreams and hopes were still intact. We are understanding now how permanent all of this is. When I think of the pumpkin patch, I can remember how Jace felt up next to me in the sling I was carrying him in. He slept the whole time. It was pretty cold last year and I just tried to keep him all bundled up. He is such a treasure to us. He brought us so much joy while he was here with us. It's hard to think that we're going to have Thanksgiving and Christmas this year and not have him with us. Last year's Thanksgiving was so special and we have so many good memories of letting him taste the food and smiling and laughing with him. Pray for us as we venture out to the pumpkin patch this year. Our hearts are so heavy and we are wondering how we are going to make it through the season. We believe that God is so good and that his Faithful hand will continue to hold us tightly as long as we choose to hold tightly to Him! We know that we are deeply blessed for getting to be a part of his amazing little life!! Thank you guys for praying for us!
