Happy 1st Birthday, Eva Grace!!!
I made a whirlwind trip to Texas this past week. I needed to bring my car back so I flew down to Tx. I was able to see one of my friend's husband who was home on R&R. Then I did a bunch of things with the house to get it ready for the movers. I took all the pictures off the wall and patched up all the nail holes. The office was the hardest to do since all the pictures that were hanging, Rob had put up. I saved it for last and took pictures of the entire room so I would always remember it. I have to say that this trip to the house was a lot harder than when I went down for the memorial service. I was by myself this time and the silence was deafening. I absolutely love my house but I couldn't stand to be alone in it. My friend Ali then drove with me back to Nebraska. Ali and I went to see Rob at the cemetary. I had bought a little Willow Tree figurine that was a little girl holding a balloon saying "birthday girl" and a pink rose that I put on his grave. Ali bought a yellow rose and guardian angel pin from the guys and also layed it next to him. I cannot believe my little baby is now one year old! It's so bittersweet. Rob was supposed to be here for her birthday. This morning when we woke up, my parents, Julia and I all told Eva happy birthday. Eva then said "da-da". Julia said "Don't worry. Daddy will be there. He'll see you at your party." That little girl never ceases to amaze me!! We had a great time with family and friends. Eva was a hoot with her cake thoroughly enjoying all the delicious sweetness! :) So much has happened this past year but it still seems she should NOT be one!!! Time truly does fly. She is more fun every single day and I can't help but feel blessed that my two girls are in my life!!!!
