Today marks 3 years since Jillian went to Heaven. Yesterday we celebrated her birthday like we always do, dessert and a balloon release. Jillian is very much a part of our family, we talk about her everyday and love and miss her very much! Thanks to everyone that was able to help us celebrate her!

This weekend we hosted the 2nd Annual JILLIAN GRACE DUCK RACE in our town. We started selling ducks and collecting prizes about 6 weeks ago, all leading up to the big race! This year we had some awesome prizes, our top prize was an
iPad, and we had a 32 inch tv, a stainless steel grill, a 24 inch tv and SEVERAL other AWESOME prizes!!!! We are soooooo excited to say that we raised
for our local hospital in honor of our sweet baby girl!! Here are some pics of our day! Everyone in PINK and GREEN shirts, we were in the local parade, and my sister even dressed up as a DUCK!!!
We couldn't do this without the help of our friends and family! WE ARE TRULY BLESSED!!!!!
We really feel like we were called to do this to honor Jillian. I think it helps with the grieving process, and know we are doing something that helps us remember and honor her. She still lives on through us! :)
