Benny

As you all know, I take a ton of photos, but you might be surprised at how few photos I have framed.  Less than 10.

3 of them are prized possessions.  They were given to me at Benny’s memorial service, by our friend, Kara, who used to nanny for the boys.  The photos she gave me were of shots she took, so I had no digital copy.  It never occurred to me, until recently, to scan them.

I finally did. 😀

This is either during, or shortly after Benny and Jeremia’s room was remodeled by Make A Wish.  JP and Benny to loved dress up in costumes, so Make A Wish ensured they would have no shortage of costumes to choose from.  The butterfly princess was one of Benny’s favorites.

This one is at the zoo during zoo lights and Benny is reaching up to touch the fake snow that’s falling.

And my very favorite.  I just want to squeeze his face and eat him all up.

Moonie

My happy little Moon cacti.

They sit right outside my kitchen window.  I loved them already, but when I googled them to see what they were called, I fell deeper.

We used to call Benny “Moonie”, Der always called him “Moonman” and I sometimes called him “Mooniebird”.  Truthfully he had a ton of nicknames, but this one stuck because his head was perfectly round and reminded Der of the moon.

Now whenever I stand at the kitchen sink and see these beauties, I will think of our beautiful Mr. Moon.

Oh how I miss rubbing that gorgeous noggin.
