Hiya – Rachel here. I’ve been meaning to write a quick post for some time to formally and publicly thank my siblings and tell them how much I love them. For those of you who don’t know, I happen to have the greatest family of all time. Rockin’ parents, and six bros and sissies who are all great friends of mine. Plus, now that we’ve started adding in-laws (Steve and David, so far…), it’s only getting better. Even as kids, we always got along remarkably well…now that we’ve grown up, we’re even better friends, and we love spending time together. Sounds nerdy, right? But it’s soooooo cool.
The latest and greatest is that my crazy sibs all got together, pooled their money, and bought David and me a sweet video camera. Now, I know this gift was a little bit for them…they want us to be thorough in our documenting of the growth of our baby boys so that, even when far away, they can keep tabs. But how cool is that?!? Six adult brothers and sisters who have both the wherewithal to organize themselves into a gift-giving unit, as well as the desire to bestow lovely gifts on their other sibs.
Am I crazy, or is that just a hugely cool blessing??
So – a shout-out to the Hornor kids. I feel so immensely blessed, grateful, overjoyed, and undeserving to call you my bros and hos, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE that you’re all going to be aunties and uncles very soon. Thank you for loving David and me, thank you for your kindness, to me and to each other, thank you for being your very weird and lovely selves. And thank you for the kick-ass video camera. We promise to send you videos of every little thing our sons do until you get bored to tears. And we promise to try to raise our kids to follow in your footsteps, being good to one another, good friends, all their lives. They should be so lucky.
