Dear Sophia,

When you were born I wrapped you in a vintage Pooh Bear Blanket and jokingly referred to you as my little Pooh Bear Love....

Years later, you are still my Pooh Bear  (just not when we are at soccer, right?  HA!)

You will ALWAYS be my Pooh Bear Love!

Dear Sophia,

A sleep over with a good friend is fun....anyone see a napkin head?

But a sleep over with a good "napkin head friend" and Penguin Pancakes in the morning is REALLY FUN.

I love you.



PS....water sports are ALWAYS fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Project Crystal Clear

Dear Sophia

We made a delivery for Project Crystal Clear today at The Wellstead Memory Care/Assisted Living Center.

They were very excited and appreciative of your generous efforts.

To do for others is an important thing we need to remember to be happy within our own hearts.

50 glass cleaning kits!

We do for others WITHOUT the need to get recognized or be told we are doing good things. We do good for the sake of good and that is enough.

Of course giving makes us feel good and always keep that feeling close to your heart.

A Million Dollar Purchase

Dear Sophia,

A memory I will never forget.

While in Nebraska we went to the dollar store with Jocelyn and Aunt Paula to pick up some things for the Luau Party. 

When we got there and you were looking around with Jocelyn and avoiding me, I knew something was up. Then you asked aunt Paula for something and I assumed you all were conspiring to buy some sweets or candy behind my back. :)

Little did I know you were buying this beautiful figurine for me.

You were so proud. You purchased this for me and gave it to me as a "surprise" when we got back to the car.

When I asked why you chose this lovely lady for me, you said something along the lines of "Mama, you always said that Nana Marcy had pretty things and you loved Nana Marcy so much and this reminded me of Nana Marcy and so I wanted you to have it."

Then you said, "I put all my love in it."

I know you did sweetie.

Random acts of pure kindness.

I love her and have named her Marcella....after my Nana Marcy...your Great Grandma Marcy.

Nana Marcy was an amazing woman. Soft, kind and humble. Patient, loving and strong in her faith in God.

You possess many of Nana Marcy's characteristics and for that I am glad. She is looking upon you and smiling.

Life is good. Thank you for being you.

Love, Mom

Dear Sophia,

We went up north just you, me and your Dad this weekend on a spur of the moment idea.
It was the best idea EVER.
It was so good to just be with you and your Dad for a few days.

We enjoyed some games, time on the pontoon and of course CRAFTS and CONES.
Your ice cream was so are lucky Dad didn't try to eat yours!!

Great Job driving and docking the pontoon!

Nothing tops of a Saturday like a took Daddy a few tries but he got it going...then when we were done with our marshmallows we pooped out and went to bed! Some bonfire champs we are....NOT!

Now THIS is the FACE that CRACKS me UP!

We laughed so hard over your "butterfly" chair.  You looked so funny carrying that up from the bonfire.

We had a blast on our boat on Sunday. It was fun going to the Wharf for breakfast and then swimming.

Great Memories.

I love you.
