Happy Birthday tooo *deep breathe while remembering names* Kirri, Levi, Emily, Mom, Tim...
I'm sure theres more.
Happy Bday Kirri-stein (tis the season to call her stein). I am still mad at you for blowing me off not once, but twice, you butt. When you come to visit and never have time for me and/or you don't tell me your home, you butt. I'm still mad cuz I haven't met your baby and she's not going to be a baby when I finally get to meet her!
Levi, the last time I snuck on Facebook I saw pictures of you riding a horse. Now you tell me, through our annual texting every Oct, that you are now a substitute teacher, which makes me laugh. Turning into a teacher, just like yer dad. Ya know what I love most about talking to Levi via text is the fact that he types/texts the way he talks and I know him well enough to know what he means and how he says it. Its funny. Its totally him. You know how you can tell who someone is simply by their writing or talking or verbage or whatever. Evan doesn't get that.
Emily, dearest you are now a teenager, let your wrath reign! Ya, nevermind, you have the same problem I do in that department. Nobody will ever believe you are a teenager. You'll still get kids meals and crayons at restaurants.
Mommy! I love you! I hope you like your kitchen and I hope you think of me whenever you see it. Esp when you see all the imperfections. At least something got done with your kitchen in the last year. I hope you survive in that house with your husband and that strange family he invited into your now 'owned' home.
Timothy Green! I just have to say Happy Bday to you. I'm sure you aren't missing out on the life your children are living. I'm sure you get help up there! We have this weird connection, your family and mine, obviously and one day I will meet you.
Mindy sent me videos of Maylee making funny faces and climbing furniture. I watch them over and over, all day long. They stay up on the screen all day long and I play them over and over when I need a smile. Gosh I miss that girl. She only has brothers to mimic, a father to teach her to burp and a mother, who I love, but doesn't know anything about fashion. This is going to be interesting to see how she turns out. I just want to hold her, hug her, and call her my babies one more time! Why does she have to be so far away!? She's not going to be a baby anymore when I finally get to see her again!
