Happy holidays - not so much

I know it's only August, but who else is dreading Christmas and the holidays? I know I am.

We're already trying to figure out our escape plan.

I don't even want to pull out our decorations, but for Sadie's sake, we'll put the tree up this year. And that's probably all we'll do.

I seriously think about Christmas all the time. It feels like someone is punching me in the stomach every time. My sister-in-law's twins are due in November, and it will be all about the new babies' first Christmas, but it should have been Owen's too. I am thinking I want to skip it this year, but not sure how the husband will feel about it. We'll see. I hope I'm making it worse in my mind than it will actually be. I'll hope the same for you.

I didn't think much about Christmas until today. I received an ornament from another BLM today. She told me when she lost her girls (twins) she treasured her ornaments for them. She said that she pulls them out every year and thinks of the girls and feels they are included in the holidays. From this conversations with her, I have decided that our family tradition will be getting a new ornament for each child. Now we obviously don't have any children on Earth this year, but Wyatt will have a new christmas ornament waiting for him under the tree this year, and every year going forward. For now, Mommy and Daddy will open his ornament. But later on, when our future children (hopefully we can have more) are older, maybe we will include them in Wyatt's memory and have them open their brother's gift.

Holidays are so hard... I to dread them I love this ornament idea though maybe itll help soften the blow if even just a little. Sending much love
