Christmas: Part 1

The first part of our Christmas started on Christmas Eve. We went to our Church's Candlelight Christmas Eve service which was as always so refreshing and beautiful. After that we went to our parents house to have supper, snacks and to open gifts.

The kids enjoying opening gifts!

After everyone opened gifts, my mom and dad gave us a priceless gift. It was a Kooper doll. The baby doll had been hand made and was the exact weight, height, head circ., fingers, toes and everything just like Kooper. It was the neatest thing and now when I have that longing to hold him, I can hold the doll to help ease a little pain and remember the memories of him.

A few tears were shed.

I brought "him" home, wrapped him up in Koopers blanket from the hospital and put him in a wicker basket in our curio cabinet. That way I can see "him" everyday.

Thanks to all my family for a great Christmas eve!! And for all you do! We love you lots!!!
