We love Aunt Melody

Driving home from church today Rylan asked, “What is the way to Aunt Melody’s house?”  I pointed west and said “That way.”  He asked, “Can we go to her house?”  Colton chimed in, “No, Aunt Melody lives too far away.  He thinks Aunt Melody lives in the apartments by our house.” (Which kind of do look like her complex in California.)  I said “It would be cool if she lived that close wouldn’t it. I miss Aunt Melody.”  Both boys in unison said, “Yea.”  Then Colton asked me, “So if we keep driving in that direction we’ll get to her house?”  I said, “Yes, but it would take a long time.”  He replied, “Well, it’s a good thing that she doesn’t live across the ocean because that is really far.”  I explained that Aunt Summer and Uncle Darrell live over the ocean on an island.  In awe he said, “They live on an island!?”  Then the rest of the drive home was an informative lecture from Colton about how the oceans are all connected and really one body of water but just have different names.  But I just thought it was so cute how little Rylan was thinking of his Aunt Melody enough to wonder where her house was, and if he could go visit her. 

Possibly one reason Aunt Melody may be on Rylan’s mind is because she mailed him an early Christmas present which he got yesterday….
 SantaVisit 009  She crocheted this camoflage “helmet” cap for him.
SantaVisit 010 If you can’t tell by the intense expression on his face, he feels very tough wearing it.  (Despite the cute monkey p.j.’s)

I got an snuggly, warm scarf too, that I love.

Thank you Mel!
Pin It!

That's a cute story. It makes me feel special that they would think of me. It would be nice if we all lived close together. I am glad Rylan likes his hat.

It's nice that Melody made them something to remind them of her.

There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. "
