I'm so lonely I could Cry......

This week Mary and Chloe are visiting Mary's sister Kaye in Florida. While this leaves me free to pursue whatever Manly pursuits I wish, (eating snacks, rearranging the furniture for maximum game playing, watching the NFL draft for 4 hours straight) it also really sucks. So I made a list of the top ten things I miss about Mary and Chloe when they leave me. 

Top Ten Things I miss when Mary Leaves
10) Her Cooking
9) The smell of her hair after she washes it
8) Making her laugh, and getting to listen to it
7) Her pregnancy moments (recent developments)
6) Her "Mary" moments (permanent development)
5) Pre-Sleep Discussions
4) Her Touch
3) Looking into her eyes
2) Coming home kisses
1) Sharing days with my very best friend

Top Ten Things I miss when Chloe Leaves
10) Tickling her, and hearing her laugh like crazy
9) Reading books with her
8) Driving up to the house and seeing her recognize my truck
7) "DADDY!!!!"
6) Going home for lunch and sharing lunch with her
5) When we're on the floor and she runs up to give me a hug
4) Helping her find her pacifier during the night
3) Watching her explore news things and experiences
2) Teaching her new words, and working on her puzzles 
1) Her sloppy kisses!

Come home quickly my girls!

we miss you sooooooo much, daddy!! Chloe asks for you everyday and stops everything at the mention of you!

I can't stop thinking about you either! Last night, I couldn't sleep because I kept thinking about you and praying for you, my love. You are always on my mind.

We'll be home in a few days! I love you! Thank you for your sweet words.
