» HI Tumblr!
Sorry I haven’t been on much, life has been super hectic with Sammy being gone. I am missing him like crazy! Thanksgiving was okay I guess, but I know that it is one of Sam’s favorite holiday’s so it was difficult for me to enjoy it without him. Emp is good, she misses her daddy but that is to be expected. These two weeks can’t go by any faster..

Letter to Sam - From Mercedes
I am so glad that you got my letter and cookies. I have sent some more cookies especially for you since you were only able to eat 2 of them. You can keep these for yourself babe. I also found these salt and pepper shakers that I am sure that you and the boys can use to season whatever it is they are feeding to you guys. I hope you like them. I do miss cooking for you, I have gotten use to cooking for two people so I have tons of leftovers each night. I have also managed to Thanks to the guys I only got my hands on about two.
I am so proud of you baby, and glad that those dog tags help you remember that we are rooting for you every step of the way. So I met Maria and her twin boys earlier this week and we hit it off great! She is so much fun and Empress is getting along great with her twins. It is great to have someone there who can understand what I am going through. So now we have a standing weekly play date for Empress and the boys. Knowing that I have her there is helping me so that I don’t feel like I have to go though all of this alone.
I am missing you like crazy. I know what you mean about not being able to sleep, Empress has gone back to sleeping in her crib so I find it difficult to fall asleep sometimes. i stare up at our wedding picture, the one on our night stand until I can drift off and dream of the day when you come back home.
Oh! I forgot to mention I had an ultra sound the other day, Baby Evans is doing well, and growing strong. I am sending you the ultrasound a picture of my belly, I am getting so big! I can’t wait until the baby gets here, I can’t see my toes anymore! I went with your mom to the ultrasound so I didn’t have to go alone and we both started to tear up when we saw the baby. I wish you could have been there babe, you would have loved it…
I hope we get to skype again soon so that I can see your handsome face. I am missing you like crazy. Okay time to feed Empress, I hope to hear from you soon babe.
I love you, Always and Forever

Hey babe! I got your letter ad your cookies. Thanks to the guys I only got my hands on about two. But the were the best damn cookies I’ve had in a while. And the food here is getting nastier by the second. Well it isn’t but I just love your cooking and I am use to it. These people don’t know the first thing about salt or pepper. Anyway, we have been training hard. Day and night. It’s getting harder by the second but I’m keeping up. I’m still ranking like number 23 but I’ll get up there soon. I have faith in myself. It get tiresome and I want to give up sometimes but I think of you and Emp. I stare at the dog tags you bought me for my birthday and I know I’ll be ok.
And I couldn’t sleep the other night. I stayed up wishing I was by you and I could hold you. I would’ve have given anything to cuddle up to your soft skin and inhale you vanilla bubble bath. This sucks being away from you. I wish I could have done this and been home too but I can’t. I just miss you so much Cedes. Words can’t even explain how much I miss you baby. I miss you kisses, and hugs. I’m starting to tear up writing this.
I hope everythings fine on you end though baby. I hope you and Maria hit it off well. Jacob was wondering and asking me about you two meeting up. I saw pictures of their twin boys, they are adorable. I showed him a sonogram picture I have of our little angel. I miss cuddling your belly. I hope Empress is taking everything well and stuff. I was able to call my folks the other day and they all seem to be doing well which is good. I sad I have to miss Thanksgiving but Mom told me that you were coming over to help her cook and you all were eating together. I told her to eat enough for me and her and she said she would. I gotta get going baby. Hope you get this soon. I’m dying to hear from you again.
Love Your Husband, Sam
P.S.. Kiss everyone for me and tell Emp and Baby Evans I love them.
P.P.S The picture in this letter explains the bizzare stuff we are forced to do babe!
