The candle pictured below was made by my friend Joy in honor of Benjamin. We burned it last night as a family, while we talked about our little saint.
We all went to Benjamin's graveside to have a little birthday party. It was a gorgeous day, and spirits were high. Charlie even sang "Happy Birthday" and blew out the candles.
We each wrote a message to Benjamin and then tied it to a balloon and released it for him. We've done this for both of his birthdays so far and will make it a family tradition.
This is a picture of his grave and the cupcake we left for him, as well as the white roses that Charlie helped pick out:
