Sorry kids... It's been a while.
Yesterday Big was sick and we snuggled up in my bed. I pulled out the journal I had started for him years ago and began to read it to him. He was shocked at the letters I had written and so happy to hear all the stories from long ago. So that was inspiration enough for me to rat a tat tat on the old keyboard and put some updates down.
In October, Daddy and I went to Cabo for Uncle J's wedding. Just being honest, I really wasn't expecting to love it like I did. But holy cow. How could you not? Cabo is EVERYTHING! The people are amazing! I know they want all my money, but hey man, it's all yours. You know why? Cause' I'm having the time of my life here and that's all that matters. Arriba!!
Epic I tell you. Epic.
We finished up that month with some trick or treating of course. Sorry but once again we will not see sweet Big's face this year. Instead it will be covered up again by some ghoulish monster. That's a hook he has around his sister's neck. He is sooooo 10 years old.
I caught some pretty spectacular pictures in early November. Real pretty autumn leaves at SpringHill, some sweet kiddos and Big being tamed by BooBoo.
The best part of November was finally being able to shout it from the rooftops that I'm gonna be an aunt again in May!! These nieces (maybe nephew) are the absolute nicest things my brother and sister have EVER done for me!!! What an awesome little gaggle of kids we have now: Big, Lil', Miss E, BooBoo and Cheffie.
So now it's almost Thanksgiving. This year we will celebrate and be deeply grateful for our health, our family and friends and all the blessings that have been given to us. We will remember the people that we miss every. single. solitary. second. We will love each other, laugh together, and look each other in the eye. Not one moment will be taken for granted and we will soak it all up. Every last drop.
