Dinner with Poppy
Tonight instead of turkey left overs Poppy took Nana to dinner ! We had a date and it was so much fun! Downtown is all lit up for the holiday !
The town is bright and people are enjoying the light show. Do you remember when we came to town to show you both all the lights ? Definitely a favorite thing to do this time of year !
We even went by Santa’s mailbox to send our wish … it’s a wish for you two to have a most Merry Christmas 🎄 – one that is full of love and Christmas magic.
We can wish and hope that we will see you soon , and it’s no surprise that forever and always that WILL BE our wish ! More importantly our wish will be that you are ALWAYS happy, and know THAT TO US you are always super amazing for being so brave, and we think of you both with great love and wish for you continued perseverance and strength – strength like what you’ve each had to find inside yourselves when you had leave behind almost everything you ever knew as home …. all of your toys and clothes, crafts that you had made, all your favorite things, all of the people friends and family – and the usual day to day life you’d always known.
We hope you never let the abrupt changes in your lives bring to you any trouble and that you always use the love you have felt for all these past years…. as a building block to bright tomorrow’s ! I am so glad I had sent all the boxes of school papers to mom and dad each year from school. They will make for some awesome memories as well ! We always love seeing the artwork from different school years of our kids , so maybe one day you two will enjoy the ones that we had sent before you moved.
Never forget to keep up working hard at school and enjoy all the fun things you do ! Stay sweet and be so very good for mom and dad. Never stop smiling the amazing smiles that are yours- and be kind and sweet. Love with all your heart and don’t be afraid to love.
We love you both to the moon and back and we always will ! (Do you remember this Christmas ornament, you would pull the candy cane at the bottom and the lights flash, and it makes a pinball game sound… it was a favorite!)
We cannot imagine how excited you must be for the holiday season. Just think – we are fast approaching the beginning of December…. it is almost Guillianna’s birthday …and just like when we sent gifts on Elijah’s birthday we will send Guillianna hers for her birthday!
Before you know it – it will be time for Christmas magic! Yay! It’s sad to think I have not spoken to you since the FaceTime call at the end of April , and at that time if you’ll remember – I did hear you ask if you could FaceTime Poppy, but we’re told it was “7:30 and too late ” – but you asked for a call the next day…. we never heard back since and that is very unusual, but we hope that it will work out soon and who knows maybe in time for the holidays! If not we will make sure to keep writing letters of love until we can connect again! We both hope we can get to see your faces again soon and every day we will hope for the same. Stay super sweet, keep on being great and love on mom and dad! Good choices and good hard work with lots of laughter and fun will make the holiday season extra bright for you.
❤️Nana and Poppy❤️🍪
