Being an aunt is an awesome thing - I get to snuggle, play, spoil and then leave them at home for their mother to sort out! :) These kids know me best with a big, black, "clicky" thing in front of my face and when I was visiting back in May we were able to venture outside for some birthday photos. Seriously, you guys... birthday photos are the best. :)
It's a big tradition in their family. Get dressed up, get your hair 'did, then wander around with Aunt Amanda while she tries to think of ways to make them giggle.
But serious faces work just as well. :)
And crazy faces...
Then we drag mom into the yard (make up or no make up!) and make her snuggle too!
It makes for wonderful birthdays. :)
