I usually buy an Angel for Madison. I may buy two this year. One for Madison and one for my Mom who just passed away.

The pain of her death is so new and fresh, I don't know how I will even handle Christmas this year. I am reluctant to even celebrate, but I know I must go on and she would want me to enjoy the holiday, although she isn't here to experience it with us.

Thank you Alethia for my siggy!

Compassionate Friends has a worldwide candle lighting each year, a few weeks before Christmas. This will be my first year attending. Last year, the candle lighting was 3 weeks after Gracie passed, and I just wasn't ready to do it.

To commemorate her last year, I did buy an angel. I also bought a gift for a 3 year old girl whose angel I pulled off a tree at the mall. I will do that this year for a 4 year old and follow each Christmas buying a gift for a child in need who is the same age as my Gracie would be.

I can not return to Victoria General Hospital where she passed away, but I have been back our local hospital a few times and feel comfortable now going back to the pediatric floor. I will be making about 4 dozen Christmas cookies (different types) and bringing them to the nurses that looked after her during visits we had on the floor during her 3 years. We got to know our nurses quite well and they did so much for Gracie.

We have her stocking that we hang each year. We buy fresh cut flowers on Christmas Eve and put them in there that night.

Zac is the only one of our kids with an ornament on the tree. I'd like to do something else for him but I'm not sure what.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the amazing siggy.

We do stuff every year. I made a donation to the NICU she was in this month in her memory. I'll be doing a donation right after Christmas to an OB ward in her memory also.

On Christmas Eve we'll go to the cemetery and light a 3 days vigil candle and leave in burning and leave her some toys on her grave. <3
