In God We Trust...For Christ We Stand

Happy Memorial Day!
I first and for most want to thank all of our veterans and soldiers who have given their lives and given their time for the freedom of our country. Thank You!
Robb and I have had a very busy weekend, we started it out Friday night with a visit to the cemetery to bring Brenham some flowers from is grandparents and a flag pin-wheel from his mommy and daddy.






Then we headed out to the golf course with friends and I swung a few clubs and occasionally hit a few balls too :)






robbs golf ball landed in this pine tree, just like that, and of course we had to have him hit it out of the tree....play it where it lies!




Then of course, Saturdays excitement consisted of the hot air balloon ride..which again was awesome!!!



Sunday was spent nappin' and relaxin' just like most sundays

Today, robb and i went plant, tree, and shrub shopping to finish off the landscaping around our deck. And to find a tree to plant in memory of brenham, we found the perfect one and planted it next to the rose bush that brenham's uncle jeremy got me for mothers day. i love to have a physical memory of him that we can watch grow and mature year after year.




And then we finished off the day with a cook-out on our deck with 19 of our family members, we all really enjoyed it!
And I hope all of you enjoyed your holiday weekend as well!

Hi Katie-
I found your blog through a link from Tim and Kate's blog which I found through my sister, Racine's blog. I was intrigued by the name of course and wanted to see what it was all about. I think I just read every post you've written and I just want to tell you how very sorry I am for your loss. I can not imagine the depth of pain you have experienced! I will keep you in my prayers.

That is a beautiful headstone for Brenham. It looks great. So glad you had a good, relaxing weekend. I'm thinking of you!

Signed,

Sounds like a great weekend. The headstone and tree are both beautiful rememberances.

And I have to say, that picture of your husband playing the ball from the tree... hilarious!
