Ordinary Moments

My heart just aches for everyone in Connecticut.  
I cannot begin to imagine what the families are going through,
especially so close the the holidays.
As I went through many ordinary moments with my son since Friday,
I kept thinking of all those millions of missed moments for the families ~
a rather interesting conversation that started out with 
"Mom, I hope Santa Claus never dies," ~
hearing what he was grateful for ~ reading, snuggling,
getting to go bowling with his friend and build a fort with him ~
getting to see him sing on Sunday at church and be
a character in a Nativity wax museum.

My prayers are with them.

A few pictures of my son on Sunday.

The "button" on his right arm was how the "wax figure" was turned on and made to speak.
Currently missing three out of four of his front teeth :)

This card is to thank the Sunday school director for all of the work 
she put into the program on Sunday.  
I used the colors at ColourQ and the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch.
