"I know I've told you before, but I want to tell you again, that all of the photos that you have taken of our family are some of my most prized possessions. I hold these memories so close to my heart and I'm so happy to have them and will have them in the future to look back at their tiny faces. I know I'm going to blink and they will be teenagers. So for now I will soak up and savor every moment, but I wanted to thank you for these wonderful gifts, I will cherish them forever!"
