Merry Christmas from Delaney

***This is too cute to not share.  Last weekend Delaney was helping her mommy with sending out our Christmas cards.  When they were done, Delaney went into our office, closed the door, and wouldn’t let anyone know what she was doing.  About an hour later she came out with the following letter (I just left it as is so keep in mind that she is only in 2nd grade so there are some words spelled incorrectly, punctuation errors, inside jokes, etc., but I thought it was pretty good!)***
Hi my name is Delaney I like legos , mustaches, bow ties and top hats.
I don’t like much girlie stuff ah what am I saying I don’t like any girlie stuff.
I also like sports like soccer, football, baseball and softball and a little bit of basketball but not much. I’m eight years old and in the second grade I have a very funny weird family I’ll tell you about them next.
Ok lets do my mom first my mom her name is Stacey she is 24 no I’m kidding she’s really 23. [she’s really 42] She is the best mom in the world she’s always going it’s like she doesn’t even have one second when she doesn’t have to do something.
She feeds me she tucks me in at night she makes sure I’m feeling ok and the best one she gives the best tootsie rubs in the world I’ve had a few tootsie rubs from a few different people and not one was like hers.
My dad he’s name is tom or Thomas I like calling him tommy though he is also 42 he is very funny he always has a new joke sometimes he only thinks it funny.
When he doesn’t have a broken rib he we’ll wrestle with me and play football with me and catch I could go on forever. He loves napping he does it a lot! He’s also good at barbecuing. He types a lot like this typedie type type .
My sister Emily she is 20 years old and in college. She is a very good artist like not good outstanding you can’t just start and be as good as her. She shares a birthday with me and she only visits. Once she went to the Netherlands for like a half a year so it was like I went to I learned a lot from her and she brought us back some cool stuff.
Ok now on to my sister Mackenzie she is 13 and in her last year of middle school hopefully. She has a lot of friends and she’s a big dancer. She and I do somethings together like slap eachother slap! Rub are butts on eachother rub rub and many more things. She went to Washington D.C. recently and brought back some cool stuff and I got a cool T – shirt.
My sister Ashley she is 11 and in the 6th grade. She loves electronics and is really good at math she’s in high school math and as I said she’s only in the 6thgrade. My sister Ashley also loves pink and pigs. I share a room with her right know but soon I’m going to get my own room.
Ok know on to my pets I have one crazy dog Charlie and two guinie pigs nibbles and princess first lets talk about Charlie he is an amazing crazy dog he loves playing tug a war or fetch with his wookie and he loves his little treats called yummy chummies any way my two guinie pigs they go crazy a lot they squel a lot and they are ethier running around or just sitting there
Ok well I guess that’s its any questions or comments not correcting me on something all right well I’ll answer those ok well good bye!

  2. Oh Delaney, you are such a brave and clever little girl. I have been following your progress from Melbourne, Australia. I cannot imagine what you and your family are going through, but you all sound like wonderful, brave, crazy people. I hope this next six months are the last of the tough times and you come through this horrid disease well and loving life as much as you do now. Much love to yourself and your family. Have a very merry Christmas and a safe and happy new year. I’m hoping 2015 has much good news and health for you.

  3. Delaney I love your letter! Your family sounds wonderful! I love when you said your Dad typedie type type. You and your sister rub butts. You are so fortunate to have sisters. I had all brothers and always wanted a sister. Stay as real as your are Sweetheart, you are a lovely strong young girl. Blessing to you and your family
