Can not figure out the candles. :-)

I couldn't figure out the candles either. Laughed that you took a photo of the spill before you cleaned it, that's something I would have done for sure and loved your family photo, and beautiful tribute to Austin. Looks like you had some wonderful Christmas memories. Blessings to you my friend

I can't figure out the candles either..I'm figuring it make be a birth date..prehaps? I love seeing all your "every day" photos that all count as special memories in some way. Hugs and blessings. So glad the Lord God made our paths cross! xo

Leanna ~ The reason for them being that way was this...I was about to light the birthday cake and discovered I didn't have regular candles, only numbered ones. And, I didn't have the right numbers available. What you see was my improvisation...my Dad turned 77. So... 9-2 and 9-1-1....77! Make sense? Hugs! :)

Maryann ~ Howie asked for the photo frame with three slots in it for two photos of Austin and his tribute to him. We each wrote something that was buried with our son...the tribute in the frame is a copy of the one from Howie. Please see my note to Leanna (above) explaining the candles. Hugs to you! :)

Julia ~ I am glad the Lord had our paths cross as well. He is so very good to us, isn't He? Please refer to my note to Leanna (above) regarding the candles. Blessings to you, too. :)

With Love,
