1000 SUBSCRIBERS!!! Thank you so much!

WOW! 1000 YouTube subscribers. Thank you everyone who has subscribed to our channel for all the love and support. To thank you, we came up with a little idea to make you a part of the future of our channel. We cut up 1000 little pieces of paper and spelled out “Thank You 1000.”

As we reach each new milestone, we’re going to save all of the little paper squares and use them to spell out the next message.

We’re also going to do a Q&A video. So if you have any questions for us, now is the time to ask!

Thank you all!
