June 16th was Stacy's birthday. Some may wonder how we spent this day. This year, her birthday was on a Monday, so we honored Stacy for family home evening. We took out the scrapbooks and looked at each picture and talked about Stacy, telling stories that we remembered. Pippi and I made a cake. Pippi stuck a candle in it. She told us to pretend she was Stacy blowing it out.
Tears were shed throughout the day. Pippi even participated in the watering this year.
The past few days, Pippi has been drawing pictures of her and Stacy. She puts wings on Stacy because she thinks Stacy is an angel watching over us. Pippi even made a paper locket that she wore for a minute around her neck with a picture of her on one side and a picture of Stacy on the other. This morning, when I came out of my room, I saw Bardo and Pippi on the floor with Stacy's picture. Pippi was explaining to Bardo how she and Stacy were chinese twins because they were born just a year apart.
