Auntie A & Uncle J

 I had no inspiration for today's post until Whitney sent me the candid shots she took of Easton and I on Monday and then a post came to me.
I am an Auntie and I love it.
I am so thankful for the title of Auntie. And I know Justin feels the same way.
Currently we have 5 special kids that call us (or will when they can talk!) Auntie and Uncle.
We have my cousins 3 kids, Mayela, Avah and Dal, who we love to Skype with and who love to run around the house showing us crafts, their new 'moves' or how they run and dance via the computer screen. And if we are lucky we normally get a couple visits a year with them.
2 years ago this coming August we became a {real} Aunt and Uncle to Emerson.
We are beyond lucky for the time we get to spend with her and love the days when her Mom and Dad go on date nights so we get her all to ourselves.
It is the best feeling to hear her actually say our names now or get big hugs, kisses, high fives or fist pounds.
[And we are equally as lucky to be getting another niece or nephew in December!]
And we have Easton. 
We have been so lucky to spend weekends away and countless evenings with Easton (and his parents!) and since I talk to his Mom on a daily basis I feel like I have been lucky enough to experience him grow from being in Whit's belly to now, weeks away from his 1st birthday.
And here are the shot from Monday.
So adore all these shots.

We love you 5 kids so very very much. And we very thankful to your parents for sharing you with us.
So to say I love being an Aunt is an understatement.
The end.

We are definitely the lucky ones in this relationship Auntie Alison!!! Emerson absolutely adores both you and Uncle Justin... though she loves spending time with the both of you, she is definitely partial to hanging out with her favorite cousin Cruzie!
And we know that this next one will love you guys just as much as Emerson does! What a lucky bunch of kids we have!!!
