Christmas in the Desert and Remembering


Our family celebrated Christmas in the Desert yesterday with my sister's family.  We took time to remember our son Paul.  Paul had a huge Beanie Baby collection.  We distributed some of the Beanie Bears to family members yesterday along with this special message. 
The kids made decortions for the tree and did other crafts at their special Craft Table.
We decorated the tree.
Cooked hot dogs.
Rode on the quads and ATVs.
Then everyone when home and DH and I enjoyed a quiet evening in the desert.  No dishes to wash, just tossed them in the fire!  Wonderful day.  Everyone has requested that we make this a family tradition.  Looking forward to hosting Christmas in the Desert II next year.

That sounds like a great way to gather and celebrate. And what a lovely way to remember your son by spreading a little beanie baby joy and love. Wishing you all the best in the new year! Tammy
