Letter to Gracie

My great friend Princess Dona recently had her first child, Beautiful Gracie. I have yet to meet Gracie, because Darling Dona lives in texas! Dona asked all her friends and family members to write a letter to her so that when she's 18, she can read them all. I decided to do my letter as a 2 page layout with pictures from Dona's wedding that I was able to attend back in 2007. Here are some pics!














From the left...

Behind pic # 1 it says
"Don't give your mom and dad too hard of a time...
they're new to this, and you're their
first child. try to wait until you are OUT
of the house before you decide to get
any tattoos or body piercings!"

behind pic #2 it says
"your mom's friends may LOOK
crazy, but they're not all
that bad. Don't be afraid of
them! (except for maybe Liz!)"

behind pic #3 it says
"This little beauty just might
be your babysitter in a few years,
so be good for her now, and
she might not TIE YOU UP later!"

Behind pic #4 it says
"Yes, your uncle is HOT, but
he's your UNCLE. Don't even
THINK about him in any un-uncle
ways. And if he winks at you, chances
are that wink wasn't meant for you
anyways!"

Behind pic #5 it says
" #1 reason why you should stay
away from your uncle. Your aunt
is CRAZY, and has goodness knows
how many weapons! (seriously though,
you are so lucky to have such a cool
aunt and uncle to spoil you!"

Behind pic #6 it says
"What I do know for a fact is that
your mom and dad love eachother so much,
and they're gonna share that same love with
you! You couldn't be luckier to have them as
parents, and they couldn't have gotten luckier
to have you as their daughter! They knew
as soon as they were married, that they wanted
to have you right away! You were already on their
minds!
May you have your mommy's sense of humor,
your daddys smile,
your grandmothers grace,
your grandfathers heart,
and my phone number just in case
you need more advice!"


(I guess you "had to be there" to understand why I wrote some of the things I wrote...right Dona?)
