What a week! We had such a fun week spending time with Granny, Poppy, GAMA, Aunt Kristen, Uncle Michael, Mommy and Daddy at our Christmas House in North Carolina. One day we went to the big pool there at the resort. Kitt had a great time but Garet decided she didn’t want to get it. She did splash water in Mommy’s face though!!! We also drove into Asheville one day to a really fancy hotel because Mommy wanted to see all of the gingerbread houses. We had a fun time looking at the houses, the trees and eating a fancy lunch. We ate out a few times while we were away and were on our best behavior every time! There are some pictures of us around the property of the house and even one of the Christmas House. Then it was time to leave. We were sad to tell everyone good-bye but Granny and Poppy came home with us. We got to spend the weekend with them and we went back to the Botanical Gardens so they could see the trains, too. We rode the big train with Mommy and Granny and had fun taking some pictures of us together. Today Daddy and Poppy left but Granny stayed with us (and Mommy, too, of course). Granny will be here almost the whole week so we are glad for that (as is Mommy). We have a busy week with several appointments and then getting back into our normal school routine on Thursday. We are sad to see all of the lights coming down at our neighbors’ houses but will look forward to seeing them next year. We hope you all have a happy new year and a wonderful 2012. We know this year will bring some fun and exciting changes to our house but we are looking forward to all of the new adventures we will have, too. See you next week!
Dear Kitt and Garet,
It is difficult to put into words what an absolute joy it was spending the past week with you while we celebrated Christmas together as a family. I cannot get over how smart and curious, energetic and just downright funny you both are, and I am honored to be able to observe you grow and learn about the world around you. When you are old enough to understand what it means, I hope your Mommy will show you the Christmas card and unique gift I gave you this year as a tangible reminder of how much I love and miss you and think about you each and every day.
In the meantime, though, I am wishing you all the best that 2012 has to offer, including a healthy sibling who undoubtedly will bring as much happiness to my life as his or her big sisters have.
I’ll love you forever,
Kitt and Garet, Granny is so happy she gets to spend some extra days with you. Like Aunt Kristen said, it was a “fantastic” Christmas being with you and all the family. I pray every day that God watches over you, your sister or brother that will be coming soon and everyone else in the family. Last year was filled with lots of blessings, and I ask God will bless us again in the new year. You two are truly a joy to so many people. Love you lots, Granny
