If you are coming from Building Heavenly Bridges (BHB), WELCOME and if you are finding me for the first time and looking for support after a loss, then please check me out at my grief/loss blog!

This blog is a series of anecdotes from our life after losing our first child, a stillborn daughter, then going on to birth the two other lights of our lives!

Bear is 6: serious, organized, my cruise director and my time keeper.

The Comedian is 4: She is pure comedy always doing something unintentionaly funny that I attempt to put into words.

Enjoy our stories, conversations, and delights as we embrace the lives of our second and third daughters without ever negating our first.

Child Labor - Part Duex

A very loud - Heloooo to all you ILCWers. Lest you feel like you walked in on the second half a conversation or can't decode a private joke, here is Child Labor - the original.

A handful of comments later - I wrote of their miminal work that afternoon, but creative construction of a snow-fairy house, for the snow fairies - of course.
And so - the promised pics. Fairy Trails (made using the shovels)The Fairy House (from the backside as I didn't have snowpants on)
"Snow Fairy River" - obviously
And so - today - Bear cheerily hummed some version of "Hi Ho - Hi Ho - it's off to move snow with a shovel I go", while a certain sister is very clearly shovelless!

But don't despair. As I knocked on DH's workshop door this evening, I heard these words a very serious - nearly 4 year old voice, "Very busy working in here!"

Your girls are beautiful (which Im sure you already knew). I know you've heard it a million times, but I am so sorry about your loss. I struggle to deal w/a loss at 6wks, I can't imagine what it was and is like for you. Thank you for sharing w/us and thank you for your comment!

These are such wonderful pictures, can I come visit this Snowy fairyland?

"Very busy in here". Haha, too funny! What cute kids you've got there Cara. And I second Marth's comment- how do we score an invite to that very lovely fairy land? Or is it fairy members only?

Great job, girls! It's so fun to just sit and listen to them and their stories sometimes.

So gorgeous: I love the little fairy house.

Children's imaginations never cease to amaze me!

Thankyou so much for your comment: it means a lot to know that I am not the only one!

That's so cute! I've always loved playing around in the snow as a kid (I still do actually). Thanks for stopping by at my blog!
