You Might Be An Abbott If...

I wrote this and framed it for my grandparents for Christmas, and I thought I'd post it here.  If you know my family at all, you'll appreciate it. :)

You Might Be an Abbott If...

You have ever called 612 East Street home.
You know what it means when people talk about "the farm."
You find yourself constantly craving soggy chocolate cake.
You have received a food dehydrator for Christmas.
You believe that high school sweethearts really can last.
You have sat in the very last pew in the First Baptist Church of Josephine.
You have been warned not to run around the fireplace.
You know where you can always find a cold Diet Coke.
You think that C.B.'s makes the best hamburgers in the world.
You think that duct tape can fix anything.
You have been abundantly blessed by Bobby and Barbara.
I'm so thankful for my wonderful family.  I love that we're all so close and that we genuinely enjoy getting together.  I hope that when Micah and I have been married for fifty years that we will be a blessing to our family the way my grandparents have been to us.

I can't remember if told you or not how cute and thoughtful I thought this was. I read it Christmas Eve & it brought back a lot of memories for me as well...though uncle Bob had to explain the food dehydrator to me! Your grandparents have been the best Aunt & Uncle to me as well as a wonderful blessing to our entire family!

Thanks, Rachel!! It was a spontaneous inspiration I got while I was studying for finals. :)

They really are the best. Although I'm pretty darned fond of your parents. :)
