Gavin's 3rd Birthday


 Our Cub Scouts planting Gavin's tree! 
They did such a good job...they even dug the hole all by themselves!


 Yummy cookies...


...and milk!


Halfway to hitting our goal of signing up 15 people to be  registered organ donors.


Everyone who signed up got a green awareness ribbon for Organ Donation.


We hit our goal!!!
All of our Cub Scouts earned their Donor Awareness Patch! :)


All the toys donated!


Gavin's tree with yellow ribbons of remembrance tied on by our family & friends. It is a Flowering Pear and should be covered in white flowers in the Spring.

Thank you to everyone who came to Gavin's Party. It means so much to us. We only have one day a year now to celebrate our little man's life. Sometimes it feels like he was only here for such a short time that no one will remember him. So this is our way of saying he was here, he lived, he mattered and we love him and miss him still.

I can't believe Gavin is 3!!! I still remember and think of him often even though I never had the chance to meet the little guy! I know that as time goes by(it's only been 9 months for me)it seems like nobody remembers and that makes it harder because we want people to feel what we feel! You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

WOW- Bethany, the tree the toys. I am so glad that so many people were able to be there with you. I hope next year we will be there as well. I just got my organ donor stuff in the mail last week. I don't know if I told you I registered online.

We love you guys!!
