Friday's Letters

I can't get over these pictures Amber took of my boys.  

Dear Walker, I am terrified that the minute you start walking is the minute I gain 25 pounds.  I need to take a picture of us with me holding you and pin it under "Workouts".   

Dear Kelle Hampton, I stayed awake last night for way longer than I should have reading this post.  I cried, and cried some more, and then thought, "now THAT'S why you have over 20,000 followers".  

Dear Boys, Sorry/not sorry for having Les Mis on repeat in the car and in the house.  Just think of it as me preparing you for your future role as Jean Valjean.  And speaking of musicals...  

Dear Noel, Occasionally I am reminded of why I married you :-)  Yesterday, I sent you a text freakingggg out because one of my favorite shows, Jekyll and Hyde is coming to the DPAC in January. You not only bought me tickets in the orchestra section, you sent me this text when you found out Deborah Cox is in it.   

Dear Friends, Can you believe Christmas is in less than 2 weeks?!  Are you ready?  

Have a GREAT weekend!
Linking up with Ashley and Lauren.

Georgina Castellucci said...

This actually was so sweet it kind of made me tear up a bit. That's what the blogging community is all about seriously. I love that you cherish everyone and everything in your life - you set a wonderful example for us all, thank you :)

Happy Friday and I wanted to thank you again for popping by my blog xo

Ditto to no. 1. My little guy is HEAVY and should be walking by now. But I keep that little satisfaction that carrying and constantly keeping him from crawling up the stairs burns at least 100 calories a day. :)

Megan said...

Those photos! Hello blue eyes :) What a cutie. And yes, I cannot believe Christmas is so close... this year flew by.

Katie said...

Confession: Every time I hear the beginning of "One Day More" I burst into tears. I am tearing up while writing this just thinking about it!

rooth said...

Kelle Hampton's blog is the first one I ever read. She is so talented, I have her book "Bloom", she is seriously a tear jerker and so inspirational.

Those pictures of your boys are ADORABLE! :)

You cannot be new to the Kellie Hampton post. That girl, her story.. that Nella oh, she rocks my soul.

Granted I don't read her blog anymore because I cannot relate to her life at all, but still.

Your blue eyed boys are simply beautiful.

Les Mis. It's not christmas this year, it's Les Mis.

I read Kelle Hampton´s post, I wasn't even half through it when I had tears running down my cheeks. When she writes she really takes you there.

Kristen said...

So excited for Les Mis!! The music + kids = brilliance. My mom use to sing me to sleep with "do you hear the people sing". Never to young to start loving Les Mis!
