LAST COSTUME

Happy Halloween everybody.  It just isn't the same this year.  I miss being able to dress Ben.  I loved that even though he didn't really care about Halloween, that he was always a part of the whole experience.  This particular year was kind of the grand finale for us.  I told the kids it was the last year I was going all out on costumes.  Kaleb for years wanted to be a Storm Trooper and so we went with the Star Wars Theme.  Kayla was Princess Leia, Stevie was Padme and Ben played the part of a Jedi Master AND Yoda.  He pulled both off quite nicely.  How I miss that boy of mine.  May the force be with you Ben! xoxo

Farmer always tells me that Yoda said,
"do or do not...there is no try"
Ben makes a GREAT Yoda. He had the force!

I just ran across your blog and have been reading about your journey. My son, Oliver was Yoda this year. This past year has been rough as he is battling an inoperable brain tumor and they gave him 9 - 12 months to live. It's been 15 months since he was diagnosed. My heart is truly touched by those that are still going on without their babies. I know this experience will help me to grow, but it has been extremely difficult. Thank you for honoring your son and sharing his and your journey with all of us.
