Advent day 11, fell on December 11th, the one year anniversary of Carrisa's death. I am sure you all saw the letter I wrote to her, but I wanted something for the girls to do on December 11th to remember mommy Carrisa so I incorporated it into the advent.
Day 11: Send Balloons to Mommy Carrisa
Norah went first
Sarah helped too
The girls were very excited, they thought it was so cool. I asked the girls if they wanted to send a message to Carrisa and Norah said, "Happy Birthday!" (she is still stuck on the happy birthday thing) and Maya said, "My love you Carrisa!"
Watching our balloons
What a beautiful day
We also went to church in the morning and then had lunch as a family at Crave burger.
Carrisa really liked the comedian Jim Gaffigan, so Brett thought to honor Carrisa he would enjoy a "donut ham hamburger." HAHA, it was so gross, donuts as buns, can't really get any worse. (ps, my husband does not normally eat like this, I am not so sure he felt very good after eating it)
I ended the day by having a little alone time at Starbucks (thanks to my husband) It was so nice and quite and by myself. That is where I wrote my letter to Carrisa
