I Love Being an Aunt

We are so lucky to live close to my brother , Steve and his family. Now, in a perfect world, all of the siblings from both families would live close together, but, we all know that is not possible. We have spent a lot of time over at Steve and Lisa's cause of birthday parties, or we invite ourselves over, etc. I wish I could live close to all of my nieces and nephews...sigh. We have had a lot of fun getting to know Zach and Easton. Zach really liked Scott at first, but for some reason, he is scared of Scott now. I think it is just a phase. It was an accident how it happened. We bought Steve and Lisa the Spiderman III movie and Zach and Easton, a Veggie Tales (for Christmas). Easton was a little excited about his movive, but once he saw Spiderman III. he clearly let me and his mom know that he did not like Veggie Tales, that he liked Spiderman. We tried to tell him that Spiderman is a scary movie, but, he was convinced that he loved Spiderman. I think Steve and Lisa finally let him watch some of it, where his love and obsession grew for the nasty spider and I take full credit of it. He has since had a spiderman birthday party and pretends to be spiderman!

Little Zach's one year birthday party. It is crazy to think that just last year at this time he had O2 tubes in and a heart moniter in. If the moniter fell off, there was a very loud, obnoxious buzzing. Zach is so fun to watch, especially when he tackles or head butts his older, bigger brother.
Oh....Princess Easton! We were at Lisa's brother's house for a Super Bowl party and Addy, Lisa's neice has the cutest little princess dresses. Since she was wearing one, Easton felt left out and wanted to wear one too. So, of course, we let him wear oyne, mostly to make Steve mad. When Easton walked into the TV room wearing the pretty princess dress, Steve almost flipped out. Although Steve didnt like the dress, he aloud Easton to wear it for the remainder of the night. Easton grew quite attached to the dress and had a hard time giving it up when it was time to go.

I just want all of my siblings to know, that I love all of the nieces and nephews the same. I just happened to live very close to Steve and Lisa. There would be pictures of your kids up here too!!!

We're lucky to have such a great aunt and uncle live close by, even if Scott does scare Zach to death!
