Letter to the Fam

Dearest Brady,

You are so sweet! You are lovey and precious and darling...but...Why, Oh Why??? won't you sleep throughout the night?? I am telling you a full night of sleep is a wonderful thing! You should try it sometime, we would all be much obliged.

Love,
Mama

Dearest Natalie,

You are such a sweet girl and I thank you so much for not wetting the bed like I did as a kid, but can I just ask why you feel the need to pee three times a night?? Two teeny drops does not an emergency make, but I am not mad, at least you don't wet the bed!

Love,
Mama

Dearest Keith,

I love you, and I know how much you like the Cowboys, but can you please not stress out about the game that is 6 days away?? At least wait 'till Friday. I hate to say it, but there is nothing you can do! It is in their hands, just sit back and be a good fan.

Love,
Shannon

Dearest Sister,

Please wake up. We would all love to see your (smiling) face once in a while, especially when it is not connected to or staring at (read: texting) your cell phone.

Love,
Shannon

Dearest Wifey,

There is a lot to be stressing over. They play the Giants for the third time this year. Though they have beaten them twice already, in the history of the organiztion the Cowboys have never, ever beaten the same team three times in one season. Once, twice, but not thrice. In fact since the merger of the AFL and NFL in 1970, only 11 times in 53 meetings has one team beaten another three times in the same season. That's 21 percent. Furthermore, they haven't won a playoff game in like 10 years. That's a lot of years of frustration and disappointment that is now revealing itself in the form of stress. I can't but fear that if they lose it take them another ten years to get back to the playoffs. In addition, I just heard today our team saviour, Mr. Romo is vacationing with Proactiv girl when he should be tossing around the pigskin. My stressing is justified.

Love,

Stressing Hubby

By the way, Shannon, speaking of your dear sister. Did she tell you we ate dinner with her and her date, Daniel, at John's work Christmas party? We were so surprised to see her there! But at least it gave us someone normal to talk to! You'll have to give us any scoop on Daniel, if there is any!

Shannon said...

LOL, no offense to her date, but there isn't any scoop. She is currently dating a guy from back home that she has dated on and off since before his mission. AND the funniest part is that his name is Jason, fickle teenagers is all I gotta say!

Missy said...

That's actually a good thing probably. Especially since the nickname we gave him is Danielle. :) Nice guy, though. I'm sure the guys in the single's ward are sad she's off the market!

Shannon said...

Um, yeah the kids wears lipgloss! That's a NO!

Kelli said...

Lipgloss?

Shannon said...

Yeah, I will have to tell you not on hear just to save the kid some dignity!

Missy said...

Daniel wears lipgloss??

Well if he does I can't say I'm surprised. As I said, we call him DANIELLE! ;)
