this made my night

I got the following photo texted to me last night
from....
my DAD's celly!
My dad can barely answer his cell phone let alone send me a photo.
He has recently learned to text, but
it may or may not take him 15 mins to write one reply text.
 But texting photos....WHOAhhhh!
This was big time.

I opened the text to find this....


This meant moma and daddo  had put up their Christmas decorations. Which makes me so sad that my brother and I aren't there to share every second of it with them. #GrowingPains. The mantle is my favorite. You cant tell here, but my mom always puts up a ceramic nativity scene that she handmade years ago. It has been my favorite part of the Christmas decor ever since I was a little girl. I want it to be in my house so bad one day.

I know the picture quality is terrible, but hey, pops gets major credit for the attempt.
The mantle is not the point of the text.
It was the stockings hung by the chimney with care that got my attention.
The stockings read in order
Charlie (little brother), Whitney(that would be me), Bailey (my 4 legged child), Faith (mom and dad's 4 legged terror) and Dempsey (mom and dad's adopted 4 legged sweetheart).

The two stockings on the end were hard to read from the photo, so my mom texted me this

A stocking for Uggie Sue and Kevin "Rex" Rexxy Poo.


Made my night.
And of course KR's, too.

It's no secret that this past summer KR and I had a rough patch that was not only tough for me, but just as tough for my family.
That bridge is slowly being rebuilt
This just reminded me of it to me a little more.
It's the little things in life that make the world go round.

Mom and Dad - i know you read the bloggy from time to time so - thank you for making my night. You all are AMMMAZING individuals and even better parents. Thank you for your patience, understanding, love and support that you shower me with every single day. Love you guys!

Hope everyone is having a great week...it's half way over. :-)
