You have a lot of people who love you.  You really do.  Callie adores you.  Today, we went hiking around Castle Rock.  I was walking with Callie, and she asked, "Where is my sister Sammy?"  I told her that you were with Uncle Colin.  Callie replied with a sincere, "Oh.  I love my sister Sammy."  She always qualifies you as her sister.  You're her sister, Sammy.  You, likewise, love Callie.  You really seem to light up around her, and it makes me so happy to see it.  I hope that as you both grow up, you're bond will continue to grow.  I felt so strongly when Callie entered our life, that a big reason for her coming to our home was for you.  I felt so so strongly that she was meant for you almost...that you two make a match of some sort.  I love you both so much.

And then there's your cousin Nathaniel.  Callie called him Famel, and that seems to have stuck.  You and Famel are pretty tight too.  He seems fascinated with you and you're pretty fond of him yourself.  I'm not sure what it is.  I've thought about it a little bit, and maybe it's because he's so fresh new and clean and pure that he is able to more fully see people for what they really are.  Maybe he was told about you before he came down.  Or, maybe he watched you, knowing he'd be your cousin.  Or maybe he just thinks you're super cute.  But you sure make him light up, just like you make us all light up.

I sure love you Sammy.  You're on wonderful little lady and I feel so blessed that you are in our family -- or rather, that we're in yours.

Love you,

The Grinch Who Stole Christmas

Samantha and Callie's acting has yet again astounded us all.  We hope all your Christmases were merry this year.

Note from School

The following note was in Sammy's lunch bag when she got home from school yesterday:


We tried to feed Sammy her yogurt and granola but after a couple of bites she said, "NO!"  So, we stopped coaxing. 

She wanted to drink a lot of water, though, so that's good.

This makes me smile.
