Chad...

This is only the second Christmas I have ever spent without you. The first being while you were in Iraq. But at least I still got to talk to you on the phone. Tonight I have been thinking about when we were young and we would wake up at like 1:00 a.m. to go see what Santa brought us. You always came to my room first so that we could go down stairs together. Christmas has always been your favorite holiday. I cant imagine what your Christmas is like this year. I love you and I miss you more and more everyday. Merry Christmas brother.

I'm new to your blog...where is your brother? I have an idea but don't want to assume. :(

Merry Christmas to you, your family and your wonderful brother.

That is what I figured...but I didn't want to say those words just in case he wasn't. I'm really sorry, and I hope you find peace knowing he is now your guardian angle. I'm sure his spirit is with you and I'm truly sorry for your loss. I know it was a while ago but I just found out and honestly, that kind of loss, no matter how long will always make you ache.

I have a brother whose name is Mike who I love as much as you love your Chad (well, I can't say that because I don't know how much you love your brother...maybe your heart is bigger than mine) but anyways. He was in a car crash and for four months, we thought we were going to lose him and I remember how much it nearly killed me. So please know that today, you are in my thoughts. God Bless you guys and May the peace of Christ be with you.

I LOVE YOUR BLOG TOO!

Thank you for the comment. Your boy is so cute. Aren't they amazing. Life is definately different with kids but so worth it. I love your door decorations. I love the "M". Did you make it? Did you get Cooper's stocking at Pottery Barn? Isabel has one made the same way from there.
