It was fun for me to make Thanksgiving name tags and to do cute napkins.
We got our turkey hats out. We haven't used them since the thanksgiving that Wyatt was with us. I decided this year it was time to bring them back.
An extra special part of our table setting are these goblets. This was the first time we have used them. They are my grandmas and are about 85 years old. It was fun to talk about them and where they came from during our dinner. Wyatt's middle name is Lewis after his great grandfather...where these goblets came from. They were a wedding gift from 85 years ago. It's going to be wonderful on each of these special dinners to have a part of them with us.
Aren't they just beautiful? There are two different designs. Grapes and leaves. I love them!
And to finish off our Thanksgiving post I just need to post a few of the pictures I took 3 years ago when Wyatt was just a few months old. Some of them are blurry but I love them because they show what JOY he brought into our life and how truly missed he is.
Oh how we miss that laugh and smile...
and those uncertain looks he would give as the flash would go off.
What a JOY!
I know I've said this before but I had no idea that day when I took these pictures of Wyatt in his cute little hat that they would be used just a few months later for his obituary. It's unbelievable...simply unbelievable. I remember very distinctively that morning getting him dressed and how cute he looked in his new little overalls and his cute hat. That's why I took these picture. Emily and I had picked this outfit out before he was born. It was still a little too big on him but we were both excited to be able to dress him in it.
We love our Wyatt. We miss our Wyatt. We are grateful for those 5 1/2 months we got to enjoy him.
