It is a very different feeling to celebrate a birthday for someone you love, without them actually being present. I haven't decided yet, if I liked it or not. Nevertheless, we wanted to remember Carissa and the life that she lived, so we had a birthday party (kind of) for her. It was a sad day for me, but I knew that I wanted to remember her on that day (July 8th) and for the rest of her birthdays.
The girls left flowers on her grave, one for each year of how old she would have been.
All the Heber cousins let balloons go, in her honor.
Dolls and Malls, Makeup and Wake-up Calls, that's what little Halls are made of.
Chelsea will be FRESHMAN this year. She is becoming such a beautiful young lady. Chelsea loves sports, socializing, and her family. Courtney is in 3rd grade this year, and is looking forward to being with her friends. Courtney sure keeps us hopping with her funny comments, and active nature. Carissa is our SUNSHINE, and BEAUTIFUL ANGEL. We love her so much, and miss her sweet spirit in our home. Cashlyn is our 2 year old. She loves to help out around the house, and be outdoors with her dad. As long as one of us isn't too far away, Cashlyn is a happy camper.
We love our family, and are so blessed to know that FAMILIES CAN BE FOREVER.
