Aunt Fun

I had the pleasure of getting to Skype with my sister and her ca-razy family after work today. Man do I love those girls! Those 15 minutes put me in such a happy mood for the rest of the night (so much so that I even mopped tonight...on a Monday!). Tomorrow my youngest niece turns 3...which does not seem right! Happy birthday to my sweet stinker 3-year-old niece!
(Is she not the most adorable thing you've ever seen?)

Now let me just say that being a mom brings the greatest joy. And being an aunt...is right up there, too! One of the hardest parts of living across the country is being away from my two nieces. I miss them everyday! Kyle and I love the way they talk (even when it's sassy) and we often find ourselves using their language. "Anna did you know...?" and "Connor is a fat baby." and "Big Red is a roosta!" and "Bouncer you are a boxer that don't bark. Doug Teachey is gonna spank your hiney if you don't stop barking!" I love getting my hair and nails done from them and attempting to do theirs as well. And one of my favorite things is the seeing what dress-up clothes they will march down the stairs in next. They are allll girl and I love everything about them. It has been so fun watching them grow. I am so thankful for them.

Georgia On My Mind

Wow...what a whirlwind of a summer it's been! We spent some of June and all of July with my family in Georgia. It was so fun! Connor got in some good quality time with his grandparents, aunt and uncle, and fun little cousins. We did so many fun things during our time there. Here are just a few of the highlights...

Spent a week at the beach! (Read more about it here)

We visited some good friends in Savannah...

(I can not believe the all the cuteness in this pic!)

We went to the GA Aquarium...

The best part about being in Georgia is spending time with so many people that we love and that love us. We adore our life here, but we definitely hold Georgia near and dear! Thanks to everyone that helped make our time in Georgia so fun!!
