Sensitive letter writer strikes again

We are about to set off for Mexico on an Anniversary trip. That means NO KIDS. I am conflicted. I reeeeeeeaaaaaaaallllllly want to go but I’m nervous to leave the kids. I know their in good hands, but I will miss them. I worry. I’m crazy!

I think my daughter could sense this. She gave me this letter. I promptly put it in my suitcase to bring with me. Because that’s what neurotic mothers do.

She has become an epic letter writer. I see journalling in her future!

Happy Everything 2014

xmas20141

I have been saying NO to my kids for so long about getting a video game that they have stopped asking. So I figured it was a good time to get it for them. They would never see it coming!

You know how much I love surprising them, it’s my favorite thing!

Wait till you see. They really never saw. it. coming. They still weren’t sure after they reacted and were looking right at it. SO funny!

Then they danced :-)

Happy Everything to you and yours!

We wish you all kinds of great surprises and awesome dance breaks all year long.
Happy 2015!
