I can't even say how much all of things mean to us. After a child dies, most parents just want to know that people aren't going to forget, and after the last few days, we have no doubt that Ellie is remembered. So thank you, THANK YOU, to everyone who has supported us in the last few days!
I have a lot of pictures to share from the last few days, so settle in!
On Sunday, the 23rd, we wanted to take the boys outside for a little bit so we went to nearby greenhouse to pick out some pumpkins and play... I was a little nervous because the 23rd was the last day we had with Ellie before she got sick, and we went to the same place where we took the kids to get pumpkins last year, but it went fine and the boys had fun!
On the 24th, some people came over to help us starting organizing the stuffed animals memory pouches. We got a lot of work done in Ellie's name!
273 Buddies so far!!! So amazing!

Later that evening we had a lighted balloon release and wish lantern release for our girl- it was so pretty!
Pictures we got from friends and family: Thank you soooo much!
