The Dusty Truck

Dear Oz,

Diva has been busy decorating the Nest for Christmas. I was about to decorate the shelf above the table when I remembered how much you like Poppa's Special truck. It's usually dusty because of our cats and you call it " Poppa's Dusty truck". I missed you so much I couldn't bring myself to change the decorations. So I dusted it off for the next time you come for a visit.

We miss you very much. We were glad to see you and Charlie and your sweet Momma and Daddy this past weekend . What fun to see Uncle Andy propose to our sweet Rachel. She already loves you so very much. She will make a wonderful Auntie for you and Charlie.

We hope you are being a good helper today. Mommy needs your help.

We love you buddy,

Diva and Poppa

Looks whose on Diva's and Poppa's Christmas Tree

Dear Oscar,

Look whose tiny little hand is on our tree. Do you know whose hand this print belongs to?

It belongs to you big boy. Your very sweet momma and daddy made this very special ornament for me on your very first Christmas. It was hard to get you to open your hand up wide so it is very special to me.

I hope you will always have your hands open wide to receive all the wonderful gifts your Heavenly Father wants to give you. I hope we will always be there for you to hold your hand and let you know how much Diva and Poppa love you.

This hand print reminds me of a song I used to sing to your momma when she was a little girl.

It went like this:

Oh be careful little hands, what you do.
Oh be careful little hands, what you do.
For the Father up above is looking down
with look so be careful little hands what you do.

Thank you for being such a good big brother to baby Charlie. His hands are this small now and you can help him with your big brother hands.

We love you ,

Diva and Poppa
