1 Year Birthday Memorial Celebration


Sorry it took a week to get you all pictures from our 1st birthday party for Jacob! Some sweet friends remembered us and sent flowers and gifts. Karen said that all the phone calls and deliveries to the house reminded her of the time we had with Jacob... never a dull moment!
Of course we had to have a cake! It of course had Jacob's favorite color yellow on it. On the way to the store to get the cake our car got stuck in the snow and a yellow jeep pulled up and helped push us out! I think God sent that "Angel" just to remind us that He hasn't forgotten us!


We all wrote messages to Jacob on small slips of paper and tied them to balloons to "send them up to him." Here's a pic of Jonathan's message to Jacob:



















It was well below zero outside so we had to bundle up and quickly release our messages to the skies!
