Today I have to share the sad news that we have lost our pal Timothy. I met Timothy a few years ago when Kari was kind enough to drive with me to his home to photograph his beautiful family. You may remember that we recently lost his older sister Angelica. Timothy's family was just amazing and I cherish the time we had together. I send much love and deepest sympathy and share with you his sweet face.

I met another angel baby on Tuesday and I feel blessed to have met this little pumpkin and his adoring parents before he joined the other angel babies. His mom lovingly dressed him in his Halloween pumpkin costume when I visited in the morning and when I returned later in the evening to record his beautiful face without all the tubes the sun was setting and the fall leaves were brilliant as he slipped away gently cradled in love. I want to thank the two nurses and the social worker that always make this time a bit gentlier for all of us with their caring attitudes.

Tonight we are having Christmas breakfast for dinner here at our home in Ballard. McKenzie and Llewelyn have requested a quiet family celebration before Mac leaves on
S aturday. I need to run to fill Mac's stocking and am trying to put out a few holiday items that have special meaning. I can tell you that I am going to miss McKenzie but I rejoice in her spirit of adventure and her independence. I share a recent photo of McKenzie with our dear friend Finnley.

I want to thank all those who came yesterday to create Soul items for the Artist Sale. Please mark your calenders for December 6 and 7 and join us here at 5201 11th Ave NW. Your support of this event helps make the work of Soul possible. In love and peace, Lynette
