What Memorial Items do you have for your angels?

Do you have Christmas ornaments for them?



-----------------------------------------------

I used to have tiny glass angels for them back when it was Matthew, Mark and Mattie. But they were destroyed and I never bothered to replace them. I'd like to find something to replace them with, something that can symbolize all of them in one item so I can put it on my memory shelf (I use the top of our media stand to hold the things that mean the most to me, including my dad's ashes and a figurine from Reme's Great Grandmother's funeral that Reme bought for her.. that his Great Grand father insisted I bring home).

I do not. I have been looking for tiny glass angels (or something similar) to hang from the tree however. While I have many angels, I think I'll just buy two, one for Hope and one for Konnor. While DH doesn't say anything about my previous miscarriages, I would feel weird about putting them on our family Christmas tree. I named our angels myself, DH had no part in it (doesn't even know) so I don't want their names on them. I just want a little girl, and a little boy angel.

I don't have objects, but I have tattoos. One is on my left hip/thigh it is a heart with wings. Got it on my 18th birthday. However, it looks awful so I'm not sure how much longer it will be there. If I can fix it I will otherwise I will cover it up.

I also have one between my shoulder blades, it says mommy to angels.

We don't do ornaments on our tree, ever since I put our tree up 2 years ago and my cats just knocked it down all the time. Its just a tree with lights, boring, I know!

yes, I do. we have stars for all our losses in the early years, then we got lace angels last christmas for the babies we had lost this year. We picked up a metal angel for the baby we lost earlier this summer, and just got some ceramic wings for the miracle pregnancy and loss we are dealing with right now.

omg Jenn, I hadn't even realized you'd gotten a surprise BFP!! I'm so sorry sweetie!


I picked up Christmas Ornaments for Hope and Konnor yesterday. Little tiny spun glass angels, one with a heart (hope) and one with a star (Konnor). I was at first sad DH had to ask what they were for... but a glare fixed him up pretty fast, and then he thought it was sweet.

Now he's worrying we'll have nothing but tiny spun angels on our tree by the time he turns 40.

I hadn't said anything on here prior to today, and have kept pretty quiet about it. It was just so shocking that I wanted to keep it close until we knew what was going on, KWIM?

Those ornaments sounds really sweet, I'd love to see pictures of them.

I'm gonna assume then I didn't add you to my JM list on fb I'l have to fix that. LOL. I put up a pic last night.



I had spun angels similar for Matthew, Mark and Mattie but they got broken. Stupid cat.

And I totally understand what you mean. *big hugs* to you. Have you guys ever gotten pregnant on your own before?

Oh, those are cute!

Yes, but not in a lot of years. our last two doctors told us our odds of winning the lottery were better than getting pregnant without medical help. between me barely ovulating and the severe MFI we are dealing with, its not good odds

I have my curio cabinet for all my keepsakes for my angels. I have all kinds of stuff in there. Basically anything that reminds me of them.

I do have ornaments. But just for Jeziah and Onyx they have their names on it they are both white angels one playing a horn (Onyx) and one with a dove(Jeziah). Our family really doesn't know about the other losses. I never said anything with Winter because it was so early and with the twins when they took me into surgery my MIL assumed it was apendicitis because of the pain and I just never told her any different. Now if I ever get apendicitis for real then we might have some explaining to do.
