I remember the day we got your moose in the mail. Auntie Amber sent it to you from Hawaii where she was stationed. He came with surfer shorts, a Surf's Up shirt, and his own surf board. He also came bearing a button to be pushed that played Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. He was almost bigger than you! He also came with pictures: at the beach and at Arby's (your auntie's favorite place to eat).
Now, 3 years later, you are MUCH bigger than your moose. He now wears overalls (he has shoes but they are long gone) over his Surfs Up shirt. His appendages now bear 2 more buttons: Jesus Loves Me and Take Me Out to the Ball Game.
Where has the time gone?? I will tell you that one thing hasn't changed: how much your Auntie Amber loves you. Although we won't get to see her for awhile, I hope you and Squirt know how much she loves you!
PS Happy belated Veteran's Day, Amber - wherever you are today! Be safe and know that we're praying for you and love you so much! Thank you for all that you do for this country and us.
