My mom died on October 17, 2010 and my dad was in the hospital from October 16th-December 4th, 2010 when he finally died. During that time in between Annika turned a year old. Josh and I have no memory AT ALL of her birthday party. All we have are the pictures and what people tell us.
We know that day was cold, around 60 degrees and we had the party right on the bay! Here are some pictures from it and I can honestly say I don't remember a single moment of this party which makes me incredibly sad.
Me and Annika! Look how different she looks.
My aunt with Annika and her cake. If I didn't have this picture I wouldn't have even remembered that we did a Hello Kitty cake.
Me and Annika.
Me and Josh. We both look happy but I know we must have been stressed!
