Happy Valentines Day!!

Happy Valentines Day from the Hinckley's!!



Since our Anniversary is so close to Valentines day we just decided to spend the day together and made a trip to see Mac. There was already a heart plate and his windmills when we got there (and the pine cones of course). My parents had taken him a balloon and left a magic marker there for everyone to write on but we think they must have blown away because they weren't there when we showed up.
Josh won't let me take flowers up to Mac because "boys don't like flowers, they like hot wheel cars" but I like them so much, so we compromised- flower petals. I'm sure he would love sticking them in his mouth at this age!! And I couldn't pass up that cute stuffed animal and since it was on sale Josh let me get it. Maybe for St. Patty's day he'll get a car. :)

Hello, I wanted to stop by and offer my condolences on the passing of your son. I wanted to offer my support to you as I have just experienced the loss of my twin boys on 1.31.09 due to me having severe HELLP syndrome @ 22 weeks gestation. We just buried our boys on 2.7.09 and are now faced with the daily grief and depression that come with losing children. I am looking to connect with other parents who have lost children. Please feel free to visit my blog and read our story. I look forward to getting to know more about you.

Hi! You don't know me but I do know your mom and grandma Maughan ( I am in your grandma's ward). I wanted to share another blog that a friend writes (that is if you haven't already found it). Her name is Michelle and she lost her son three years ago to a tragic fall out of a window. Her blog has already touched so many and her words on death and finding peace are insirational. The blog is krainichfamily.blogspot.com. She has reached out to many who have lost their own children. Hopefully this note is not to wierd but I read Michelles post today and thought of you (even though I don't know you personally). Hopefully you know you are in many prayers:)

How fun and what a good idea. Again you don't know me but I'm an angel baby mommy as well, in October of last year. What a sweet little boy.

Hi you don't know me but my husband and I lost our first baby girl Preslie 4 months ago today. Our story sounds a lot similar to yours in a lot of ways. It breaks my heart that others are going through what I am. I hope that you and your family are able to find peace. Great will be the day when we can be with our angel babies again.

Love,

Rylie Martin

Happy Late Valentines Day to all 3 of you! I think that the petals are perfect and a race car for St. Patrick's Day is PERFECT! Just make sure that it is GREEN! God bless and know that I pray for you and your family still.
