Favorite Ornament

Every year everyone gets to pick one new ornament for the Christmas Tree. This was the first year Kenya was able to pick out her own ornament. It was so much fun watching her look at all the different ornaments until she finally picked the one she wanted.

We were hoping to find a Buzz Lightyear ornament (because she is in love with Buzz) but it didn't happen, so she chose Big Bird instead:

Jason got a Star Wars ornament, Vanessa got a purple star thingy and Destinee got a dino (and crashed while we were decorating):

When Jason was walking around with Kenya at the store and I was looking for an ornament, I heard Kenya say, "Look! It's Melody and Madison!" I turned around quickly to find Kenya and Jason looking at the ornament bellow. I couldn't believe it Kenya found it all by herself.


I was thinking before we left the house that I really wanted to find an ornament for Melody and Madison and I just knew that it wasn't going to happen. I knew that nothing would be good enough, there was no way I was going to find an ornament with conjoined twins.

Well, I didn't,...but Kenya did! I love this ornament because it has two baby angels joined together holding one heart. How sweet is that! Don't mis-read me here, I know that our babies are in Heaven and are humans, not angels in Heaven. The Bible makes a clear distention between angels and humans. It was just really sweet and reminded me of our girls!

I loved that the babies have their arms around each other.
I know this may not mean a lot to many people but it just blessed me that we were able to find such a perfect ornament for our girls.

This absolutely touched my heart. I had been looking for the perfect ornament for our sweet M&M's but now I know why I never found one. God had a plan. Kenya needed to find that special ornament for her sweet baby sisters. That ornament is perfect and priceless. So adorable. I love you guy's so much!!!

Perfect ornament...

I personally think of those loved ones I've lost as angels though... guardians that continue to pray for me and be with me while they reside in heaven.
