day before day of giving thanks!

Day 24 - A letter to my parents
Hmm...a letter to my parents. I LOVE my parents! Yes, at times I know I am not as grateful as I should be towards them, but I am always knocked back into place by some sort of event and I realize how selfish I am. It makes me so sad when some of the girls at work hate their parents and complain about them...sometimes they have a right to, but lots of times they are just being brats. I have a huge fear of my children hating me now, but that's besides the point. The point is a letter.

Dear Daddy & Mama,
Y'all are seriously some rockin parents! I see some parents come through at New Haven with their daughters and it makes me more and more grateful for y'all. Thank you for always being willing to sacrifice for us. Thank you for always putting the girls and I first. Thank you for joining the church so that you could raise us in the gospel. Thank you for having a strong and loving marriage. Thank you for cuddling and expressing love with each other. Thank you for all of the back rubs while being sick, lullabies sung, hands held, laps to sit in, music & dancing, late night talks, boat rides, jokes & laughter, and most importantly...for creating a family. I know once I get my own family I'll be even more grateful, but for now, know that I am so thankful that you two are my parents and things that may have seemed to go unnoticed, were not. Y'all are rockstars. Keep rockin it! I love y'all so much!
Love, Kayc

Day 25-What I would find in your bag
Depending on the day, my bag could be quite the scary things or quite the pleasant experience. I usually clean my purse out about once a month. However, my bag is never too exciting. Just the usual: wallet, camera, receipts, gum wrappers, chap stick, loose change, work IDs, pens, Sudoku (you never know when you may need something to do), and hair bands. Every once in awhile something exotic could creep in like a jar of peanut butter or a hairbrush. I'll tell you whose purse is great is my friend, Brittany's. I swear she has a Mary Poppins bag! I loved living with her Freshman year and being friends with her all during high school because she would have whatever you were in need of! Need a spoon or fork? Go to Britt's purse. Need lotion? Go to Britt's purse. Need a monkey wrench? Go to Britt's purse. It. Was. Awesome.

Dear sweet Kaycie,
I am so honored to be your mama!
YOU are incredible! You were our little gift from heaven and I can't imagine what life would be like if I hadn't stuck to my guns and insisted we have you! Each and every member of our family is so valuable and fills a certain part of my heart! You filled it up!
I know this is mushy but I don't care--so there!Sometimes things just need to be said! I love you sooo much! Love, Mama
