Grace and mommy swimming, body surfing, celebrating the precious moments in life!

"Fly Baby Fly!"

Grace released a blue balloon, so Ellie would see hers coming into Heaven first! ;)

Some of Ellie's ashes were released into the wind at her favorite place...after roses were thrown into the ocean.

Honoring Ellie - precious daughter, sister, friend...

Before releasing balloons, celebrated with Ellie's favorite breakfast - donuts!

With a tender whisper from Heaven, Ava was born into our arms to teach us the greatest lesson of all - LOVE.

Ava is 10 weeks old and is already growing out of her little clothes!

First smiles, precious memories!

WOW!!! You all sure made Grace smile on her birthday... She received hundreds of cards! Thank you!!!!

Just returned home from a beautiful weekend of fresh air in Blowing Rock, NC!

This gorgeous memorial stone for Ellie is located at her school in a new "butterfly garden". It is surrounded by flowers, a pink rose bush, and butterfly bushes, and will be a special place where her friends and future students can remember her by.

"In the palm of my hand rests some of Ellie's ashes we spread along the Portsmouth, NH coast this weekend. This was Ellie and Grace's birth place and where most of their childhood memories took place... What a beautiful place to remember!"
