This is a place where I can post family updates and ramble about things as I try to find my way since the recent death of my daughter. Life has completely changed for my sons, my husband and myself. Our faith has been a great source of comfort and we'll continue to rely on it as we press forward.
Miss Jess will be 19 years old on Sunday! WOW! AMAZING! We are having a "Pirates of the Caribbean" birthday party for her this Saturday. Jessica's therapist came on Tuesday and brought her an early birthday gift - a Jack Sparrow accessory kit. Jessica LOVES it! She must have put it on at least 5 times on Tuesday and almost as many times every day since then. Yesterday I took her to a dental appointment and she had to wear it there. hehe... Here are some pictures of her the day she got it. The last picture was after she had a bath and changed her clothes. She was pulling faces and I asked her to show me a mean face and that's what she gave me. hehe... (I'm sorry the photos are blurry, I hate it when I don't get good ones. I just hope I can take some non-blurry pictures during the party on Saturday.) We could have anywhere between 30 - 50 people. *gah!* We are cleaning the house and yard like mad.
I'm so scared! You don't want Pirate Jess coming after YOU!
