Happy 2nd B-Day!

Lincoln James 2nd B-day 3
Dear Lincoln my little man,

I know, I know, it’s been 2 months since I last wrote to you on this blog. But you will find that doesn’t mean I haven’t wrote to you at all. As I have told you before, I have several notebooks that I write in all the time. I just haven’t gotten on the computer that much.

Life with you is much more than an adventure, it’s awesome! It’s also a learning experience. Everyday I learn more about myself and the way I look at life. At 2 years old you show more love, compassion, and joy than most adults. I have watched you put a smile on peoples faces that appear to have lost that simple joy of feeling happy.

For your 2nd birthday your momma thought it would be great to spend the day at Spicers Orchard, and boy was she right. You had a blast picking apples, pumpkin hunting, playing with other kids, and lets not forget the cider and pumpkin doughnuts.

Someday when you read these letters I can only hope and pray that you know how deeply you are loved little man.

From here to the moon I love you, Puppa

Tangled and Your Momma!

Your favorite movie!

Dear Lincoln,

The movie Tangled from Walt Disney is by far your favorite movie.  Tangled is the story of the magically long-haired Rapunzel who has spent her entire life in a tower, but when a runaway thief stumbles upon her, she discovers the world for the first time, and who she really is.

IMG_1878Rapunzel reminds me a lot of your momma, sweet, beautiful, determined, strong and a tender heart.  I think that’s why you like the movie so much, you see your momma.





Lincoln always remember, no matter how serious life gets you still gotta have that one person that you can be completely stupid with.  And that person is your momma.  She loves you so much!

I love you little man, Puppa


Pure Joy!

Here I come Puppa!

Here I come Puppa!

Dear Lincoln,

The picture may be blurry but I absolutely love it!  We were chasing each other around, hiding behind furniture, yelling, screaming, and laughing like crazy.

I was hiding from you and you found me and started chasing after me and I quickly pointed my iPhone at you and got this shot as I was running away from you.

I can’t tell you how much fun I have with you.

Lincoln, if I had a flower for every time you made me smile and laugh, I’d have a garden to walk in forever.

I love you to the moon and back little man, Puppa

Dare To Be Young Man, Dare To Be

Your smile makes my heart sing!

Your smile makes my heart sing!

Dear Lincoln,

“Dare to Be

When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.

When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.

When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.

When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.

When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.

When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.

When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.

When times are tough, dare to be tougher.

When love hurts you, dare to love again.

When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.

When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.

When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.

When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.

When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.

When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.

Dare to be the best you can –

At all times, Dare to be!”

― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free


I love you Lincoln, Puppa

Jump Back! To Thanksgiving That Is.

Dear Lincoln,

Just came across these photos on my phone and realized I hadn’t shared them with you.  I took these as we were shopping just days before Thanksgiving at GFS and Costco Park.  It’s actually Costco but we call it Costco Park because we always go on Sunday and try all the samples as we shop and then end the trip with sundaes under one of the umbrella covered picnic tables.  So without further delay…..

I love you little man, Puppa

New Years Eve in the ER

This gallery contains 8 photos.

Dear Lincoln, Now that inventory time is over at the store, (just ended yesterday) I thought I would catch up on some letters and photos to you. On New Years Eve Nana went up north to spend sometime with Great Grandma Boo and her sisters and your Daddy went up to visit his mom and […]
