easter sunday night

This is not the end of our story, do you hear me, Michael? You’re gonna wake up and you’re gonna be okay. And we’re gonna move into our new house and we’re gonna live there until we outgrow it. Because I’ll be pregnant with our third kid because we landed on three the other night, three kids total — which will seem overwhelming, but Mateo’s such a big help. Oh, and we’re gonna go to the mountains, we’re going to take ‘em to the mountains because we always wanted to be in the snow. And then we’ll go every year and that trip will become tradition. We’re huge on family traditions, by the way. Christmas, Easter, Sunday night dinners…and even when the kids move out and have families of their own, they’ll always come back for Sunday night dinners. Partly because they want to see us, but partly because you’re such a great griller. And we’re gonna be that old couple that sit on the front porch, reminiscing, arguing over details…and we’ll get a stupid cat because, yes, you convinced me to get one. And we’re gonna be happy, Michael…
