Happy Holidays, Draiden!!

Hi Draiden!

How was your thanksgiving? Mine was very good! I had a thankful tree, just like YOU - and I'm very thankful that you are my penpal! 

As soon as Thanksgiving was over, we rushed out to get a Christmas Tree. Do you have a tree yet? 

I think I've been a pretty good boy this year (or that's what my mom says) - I hope Santa puts me on his nice list! I have been watching a lot of Christmas movies - my favorites are: Muppet Christmas Carol, Letters to Santa, and Rudolph! What are your favorite Christmas movies? 

It's finally started to get a little bit cold in Texas. We have a big fireplace and I love helping my mom and dad gather firewood. 

What are your Christmas plans this year? Are you going to have Christmas at YOUR house? We're having Christmas at our house this year (I think My grandparents going to come - I'm excited!) - and a few days after Christmas, we'll have "Friends-Mas" where all of my 'uncles' come over to exchange gifts and watch Christmas movies. 

Bye Bye - I love you! 


June - hi Draiden!

Hi Draiden!

Things have been crazy with our move, but here's a few pictures of our new house!

It's in a super tiny town (about an hour from Austin, and 45 minutes from San Antonio) called Canyon Lake, and our new house is, you guessed it, on Canyon Lake! 

As you can see in the second picture, we have about a MILLION deer that live in our yard. I've been having a great time going to our beach every day, I especially like throwing rocks :) I wish you could come over and splash with me!



March - letter to Draiden

Dear Draiden,

I love you! Thank you for all the amazing treats! 

It’s crazy how different the weather is where you live. I’ve never even seen snow! I would love to play in it (but I bet you are ready for some warmer weather!!)

My dad has been traveling a LOT so we’ve been trying to meet up with him whenever he’s close. He’ll be home for most of the summer, though, so I’m really excited! 

It’s SO awesome how you go to Washington during the summer - maybe someday we’ll visit my grandparents who live there at the same time! We go to Massachusetts every summer for a couple weeks - but that won’t be until August. I’m excited because my favorite museum is there :) 

My mom is going to go on a work trip next week for the first time since I was BORN, so I’m get to spend 5 days alone with my dad (and probably some of my uncles too)! I’ll take lots of pictures of our guy-time. 

I wish you could visit us! It’s warm here, and we could play at the playground every day!

PS. **TO DRAIDEN'S MAMA** - I have a client who makes a really beautiful THICK cream lotion (lots of coconut oil, aloe, infused calendula, vitamin e etc.,) She had a crazy accident which led to her needing to use tegaderms for a few months, and this helped her skin deal with reactions to the adhesive. Let me know if you want me to get a batch for Mr. Fox and his ouchy Dexcom sites.
