Yesterday was a birthday !
Dear Guillianna and Elijah –
Yep, it was Aunt KiKi’s birthday and we got such a nice call- they used two phones and, both Poppy and I were able FaceTime with them, but we were all at separate locations. It was fun to be with them and celebrate. We sang Happy Birthday all together, and then shared (even if only on camera) some dessert and watched as she opened presents. It was fun to see all of them and celebrate her special day. I am so sure she misses and loves you so much, but she knows how busy you both have been, and understands so she is not sad when you can’t call or see them. She too wants you all to be happy. I’m pretty sure that they won’t be able to travel to the Mitten for a while – so we were grateful for technology.
Poppy and I hope you’re both doing so good – and we are just about through another week. He will be taking off some time from work, and wanted me to be sure to tell you he sends you HUGS AND KISSES! The picture above was taken when we all went away – you two and we also took Coach Megan and Miss Taylor. So – so – so much fun right ? I think you swam so much that weekend you almost became little fish 🐠!
I unpacked another box the other day since we moved and figured I would show you something you may remember. The purple shoe!
Then I began to cook…. and well, cooking with out my two helpers sure is different.
And, I made some soup for Poppy. I always seem to forget we are only two people, and find myself looking to share the extra food . Grandma Sally loves when I can bring her some home made goodies. Being in the kitchen makes me think of the Food Network, kids baking championship show and you two baking with me. At the end of the day, the thing that makes us most happy is remembering the smiles. The fun and laughter- so many stories to write and keep. I hope one day you will read them and say, I remember that! And the smiles will sneek up on your face and be older larger versions of the ones below.
Certainly were a lot of smiles and that makes both Poppy and I happy remembering them and the hope that you are making lots of new fun times together!
We hope that you know how much you’re loved and missed by everyone. Make today awesome and keep up all the hard school work . Now that Aunt KiKi is done celebrating – we are well on our way to Poppy’s birthday. The Thanksgiving holiday / Guge birthday events and Christmas 🎄 are right there after that ! So exciting .
Please know we ❤️ love you to the 🌙 moon and back, forever and always ,
❤️Nana and Poppy ❤️🍪
