Maddi do you remember your dog she she? and how i was over at your house playing with her and she through [threw] up on me and i said "the dog yacked on me". even if you don't remember that is something we always bring up every time i visit you. we always have so much fun when we are together like when we spent the night in your grandmas basement and go all freaked out so we had to sleep upstairs (haha). always thinking about you, love you!

Do you remember the gummy bears? You, Paige and Carly were talking about gummy bears in a weird way and I came in during the middle of it and just heard Gummy Bears. And I said “I like Gummy Bears because of the movie Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” Then all of you started laughing so hard. I didn’t know why. Then I said “I like Steve”. That was fun. You really helped me through my first time at YW camp. I have more stories too. All the good times we had with the American Girl Dolls and hanging out eating ramen noodles at my house. The day before Thanksgiving when we hung out at your house almost all day until about 5:30pm. That was a fun day too.

story from Abbey as told to a friend, she didn't know I [mom] was listening, but I think Maddi will love it.
I'm pretty lucky know why? Every year I have a sleep over with my aunt (she means Shannon) and pretty much all my girl cousins. And we do make up and eat treats and at midnight we go get slurpees! Then when we come back us little girls pretty much just fall asleep and the big girls (she whispered the next part) stay up and watch pg 13 movies!

Deep in the meadow, under the willow, a bed of grass, a soft green pillow
Lay down your head and close your sleepy eyes, and when again they open the sun will rise
For here it’s safe, here it’s warm, here the daisies guard you, from every harm
Here your dreams are sweet, and tomorrow brings them true- for here is the place where I love you
Maddi, do you remember how on the bus you couldn’t stop laughing whenever we said the word “pudding”?
Maddi, do you remember the Teen Writers Conference?
