Last night Grouchy helped Addie and Ainslee get their Christmas thank you notes written. He coached and they wrote and drew. Tonight is our last night before returning to our new home in Idaho, so Grouchy's mom invited his sisters and their families to come here to their farm for a farewell fried catfish dinner. YUM. Have I mentioned I gained 4-5 pounds in three weeks here???
As the cousins and aunts and uncles left, my girls handed the notes out.
One of Grouchy's sisters had a particularly emotional goodbye, and Grouchy shared the sentiment. It's hard!!! So she text messaged me later after she arrived home. She said she cried all the way home, then opened Ainslee's note, read it and cried again, but this time from LAUGHING!!! Enjoy the photo she sent to me so we could laugh too. When Grouchy saw it he snorted chocolate soy milk out of his nose. Now our nephew wants to see a video of THAT!!!


  1. AWESOME! That's my girl - call 'em like you see 'em........ hahahahahaha!!!

  2. Nice!!

    I have just been catching up on your blog, we really need to chat. I am so sad that I didn't get to see you in person, we were all sick before Christmas, then we were in Disney...
    We will really have to fly up there and visit. Tucker needs to ride that snow tube!
