friday's letters.

dear anyone who hasn't seen the movie October Baby: WATCH IT. :) :) :)  please.

dear homeless couple by target:  I'm really disappointed that you didn't want the groceries that I bought for you... but I must say, you have inspired me to listen more to the Lord and the things He places on my heart.  Although you didn't want the groceries, I felt great about carrying out something I knew the Lord was asking me to do.

dear adorable but crazy kittens: stop being so freaking cute.  I want to keep all of you!!!  and it would be nice if you'd sit still so I could get some good photos of you three!

dear sweet daughter of mine: would you please stop being so stubborn... your momma is about to lose her mind... she has no idea how to parent you and it's really starting to get to her.

dear sally hansen: thanks for your awesome new nail polish strips!  I'm not great at painting my nails but I love the way it looks... so these strips are perfect for me. [just wish they were cheaper!!!]

dear germs: leave me and my family alone.  we are all tired of being sick.  you are evil, go away!!!

dear Grammie: I miss you!  I've been wearing your shoes a lot lately - thanks for having the same size feet as me :)

dear fall: thank you for being so beautiful.  you are definitely my favorite season.

Happy Birthday Gage David!!!

my baby boy turned 2 years old today... WOW!!!  Sadly, I was sick and in bed most of the day (even doing this post while snuggled in bed) but was able to gather enough energy to watch him open his presents and enjoy his cake :)  It's so hard to believe that he is already 2 years old... I can SO vividly remember those exact moments of learning I was pregnant again.  Oh Gage, one day you will hear about how much of a surprise you were - but you will also hear how incredibly grateful and blessed I feel to be your mommy!!!

#5 - try to crochet.

 I've been feeling pretty crafty lately. [thank you pinterest.]  I was visiting with my aunt last weekend and decided it was time to give crocheting a try.  It's on my 30 before 30 list - and my aunt knows how to crochet - adds up to let's do it!!!  I found some yarn and she got me a crochet hook and we were off... or were we?!?  It took her countless attempts to teach me even the very basic step.  I'm not so sure crocheting is for me but I will continue to work at it.  I'd love to make something for each of the meatballs.  {i'm such a dreamer...}

Thank you for your help Aunt Connie!!!  I appreciate your patience :)
