On any special holiday and just random days throughout the year, we make it a point to go “feed the ducks“. Unfortunately for our family there’s a back-story to that. It means we’re visiting my brother-in-law’s grave site. (It always stinks to summarize it like that … I won’t fill in all the details in this post, but you can click here or here to understand what that means us.)Anyhow, I managed to snap some really cute pictures. The ducks were HUNGRY on this particular day!!
A little too hungry!! They snapped at Evan’s finger when he didn’t give them bread quick enough!!
Each Christmas, we take a new ornament to hang on Jeremy’s tree. This year we went with something that both Megan & Evan love!
Because every little tree needs a dinosaur ornament! Holidays are always tough when you’ve lost someone close. We’ve done this every year since Evan was a baby. I really hope it’s a tradition they learn to respect and love. We want Uncle Jeremy to be a part of there lives even though he’s not here with us. I know Pepper hates having to celebrate Christmas with his brother like this, but at the same time I know he appreciates the tradition as well.
