(Installment 9) Dear Mom and Dad,

We got a laaaaate start to our day... partly because we slept in, but mostly because we were helping you decided whether you wanted to go to Cadiz or Marion Kentucky (lol, JK!).
We had brunch at lunch and spent the rest of the day cleaning. Ker started fall cleaning in the family room while I cleaned out the fridge and tidied the house.

Today was filled with lots of little memories, memories like these....

  • Listening to Josiah and Jaden singing "Open the flood doors of heaven, let it rain, let it rain!" at the top of their lungs.
  • Watching Elijah crawl across the floor until he decided that he needed to go faster, and would switch back to scooting.
  • Having all the kids (including Elijah) surround me at the piano all the while singing "O come all ye faithful" and other Christmas songs at the top of their lungs. If my ear drums have ever hurt.... they were hurting then :)
  • Watching the kiddoes play "Bananagrams". The words and spelling that they came up with was pretty hilarious!!
  • Watching my not-so-little little brother take care of and play with his little siblings. 
  • Taking pictures of Elijah while he smiles at the camera (makes my heart smile :)
And there were many more like these.

It is exciting to know that you are on your way home!!! Not to many more days before we get to see the both of you again!!!!! (YEEEEHAWW!!!!!)

Wellozies, I need to go and make some popcorn with Bob :)

Love you and miss you like CRAZYNESSES!!!!!!

Caleb says:
I moved the bed back to the old way. Started 1 fire today. Washed 2 blinds today. Went outside 2 times today. I had 1 headache today. Love you and hope you have the rest of a good trip back!

Zachary says:
Nope, I haven't made any more lego things. Today we didn't do school. Of course we didn't do school!!! So we went outside this morning. We had a lot of fun. We played in the drifts today and we had a lot of fun outside. Then we went inside and watched a video. We then ate waffles at 12 o'clock. Then we played a little bit and went back outside. While we were outside I worked on a broken sled that I found out in the bushes and we did sled races. After that we ate suppers (leftovers). I hope you are having fun! And I hope the hotels are good. And I hope that your car doesn't break down. And I hope that you are all safe. xoxoxoxo Love Zachary

Jesse says:
I hope you are having a safe drive. We had a lot, lot, lot of fun today. We played with the sleds mostly outside. And we watched a video and ate supper and lunch. I can't wait until you get home! I have 128 eggs this week. We sang Christmas carols. xoxoxoxo Love Jesse

Nathan says:
I don't know if the chicken was sick or not. Today we got 19 eggs. Today we went on the sleds. We were outside a lot today! I hope you are having fun. Make sure you have your drivers licence. May God keep you safe. I love you!! xoxoxox Love Nathan

Brooke says:
No, I haven't baked anything lately. We played outside once today. We had fun. We slided down the hill with the GP again today. It was so fun! Jaden was not outside. He was sleeping, so he could not come out. Zachary, Nathan and Jesse slided down the hill with it too. Me and Kaya played outside too. It was fun!
I hope you are having fun traveling back home. I hope it is no trouble for you to travel back home. I know how much you love the Munck's place. I love it too! It is so much fun there! It would be so fun if you were here. I hope you get here safely. I hope you get here soon. It is so fun when you are here.
I love you! I'm SO glad that Mikaya is back. It is SO nice to see my sister back again. It is nice if you were here. We aren't having to much trouble here. I hope the roads aren't very slippy.
God is in charge!
It is fun to have brothers and sisters in your family. I hope you aren't having to much trouble without a kid!
xoxoxoxox Love Brooke

Mikaya says:

Josiah says:

Oh, I wondered if it was the chicken that was sitting under the boxes most of the time. Glad you were able to spend some time outside. It must of been warmer! Love you!

Sounds like a fun day! The roads haven't been slippery because it is too warm. Yesterday it was very warm outside! Today we will get back into the cooler weather! That's ok cause it will mean we are getting closer to you! Love you!
