A hug for Papa

As many of you know Laura's Dad fell last weekend and broke his leg. He had surgery on Wednesday. On Sunday when I was a little sad over not being there to help and stuff I came up with the idea to make a hug from us to him. I traced Danya's arms, which was quite the adventure because she is just as ticklish as I am. When the pencil rubbed against her arms she giggled and squirmed. Then I took that tracing and made a hug. Yes it kinda looks like a pink snake but it is actually the length of Danya's arms. It is the only way we could be there right now. We've talked to Dad on the phone everyday just to keep him company. When ever I pull out the phone she says Papa? And when she hears his voice she squeals Papa! It's hard not being close but we know he is in God's care which is far better than mine.

Laura, how clever of you. we used to do that for the kids when they were away at school only just using paper. I'm sure your father loved it.
