I should have posted this before. It is a picture of our mother's day tattoos.

A visit

We went to visit Ellie's grave this weekend. Truett and I were going to go alone but then Amelia decided that she wanted to go too. As soon as we pulled in and parked Amelia was out the door running. She loves to visit "baby Ellie". I was working on putting the new flowers we brought in the vase and Truett was playing the guitar. Amelia climbed on top of the grave stone and sat down - like it was the most natural thing in the world.

It is so sweet the way that she always talks about her baby sister - but it makes me sad too. For her (and us) it is completely normal to talk about her baby sister in heaven. She hasn't noticed yet that most people pretend that they didn't hear what she was saying.

It wasn't the best visit ever but it was a nice family moment with all of us together.
