In Rememberance of Scott

When Scott was born the people at Joe's work, UESP, gave us a gift card to Western Gardens. We decided that we wanted to use the money to purchase a tree in remembrance of Scott. We finally were able to get to the nursery today to pick out a tree.

I absolutely love magnolia trees (I even used to ask my family to call my Noli, short for Magnolia). We looked at several different varieties and settled on the Royal Star. I love the name of it. Joe really liked this one because it stays relatively small and Scott was very small.

I really hope that it grows well. We asked if we would be able to transplant it when we move and they said it would be fine. I look forward to watching our little tree grow and thinking about my little Scott.

This morning as we were getting ready to go to the nursery Joe told Hayden we were going to buy a tree to remember Scott by. Hayden turned around and walked to the book shelf and pointed up to the molds I have displayed of Scott. That made me so very happy. I love both my boys so much.

Happy Memorial Day!

Mother's Day

My sister helped me make this to give to my mom and Joe's mom for Mother's Day. I had wanted to give them molds of Scott's feet but we can't get the plaster molds to come out of the mold without breaking. I love the way it turned out.
