The End of an Era

Well, it happened. The moment we knew would happen but didn't know when. Tonight was it. As we were tucking India into bed she said "Sometimes I think that it's all you guys. You take our teeth and leave money for the tooth fairy. And you bring us presents on Christmas. Is it true?" I tried to skirt the question asking her what she believed but she wasn't having it. I got a "Just tell me mom. I have to know. Is it you and dad? Do you leave the gifts on Christmas?" I still just looked at her and didn't say anything, but she persisted. I finally said "Yes."  At which point a shriek and cry came from the hallway and Jordyn came running into India's room crying. Sweet girl was listening outside the doorway and we didn't know. She is so sad! As I was tucking Jordyn in she asked me, "Will I forget about all of this in the morning?" I said "I hope so baby."

And that is it.... India was ready to know. Jordyn was not ready to know. But, here we are. Fortunately Linwood has been telling them for years that he's Santa so we can keep going back to that.

Let's Catch Up!

Well catching up prob won't happen but we can post some new pictures from 2017. This evening at dinner Jordyn was about to fall asleep at the table and we all had to go plates to take home. During bedtime Linwood rubbed the girls feet. After rubbing India's feet she so politely asked "dad may I rub your feet for you now" we really love our babies. Enjoy a few pictures!
