Listen you....

Dear Evansen-
We know you're in the car now, and won't be reading this for a few days....
but we were hoping you could just come back.
We had lots of fun with you.

We'd never really spent much time with a baby before, and you were pretty cool. We really liked watching made us laugh.If you come back we promise we won't make you sit in the grass like our moms did.
Or lay on the grass....(they're so mean)
Or take 3 million photos of you, when clearly you'd rather play ball with us....
We won't growl at you.
or make animal movements in your face.....Ok, we might do that...

We will keep teaching you important things like how to walk and give high-fives.... We will feed you lots of dessert and make you even BIGGER and stronger than you already are....We will let you sit on the table every night at dinner......
and let you pull on our hair....(well, maybe not the hair part, that kind of hurts)
why is that so funny anyway?
we will pat your head....and tell you how cute you are......
and make funny noises with our mouths that make you laugh.
So please come back...
We think our mom may take us out and make us lay on a polka dot blanket for a photo shoot if you don't.
We love you.
Thank you for making the 13 hour car ride to come see us. Love-your cousins.
