I Declare Today KID Day!!!
My nieces came in from out-of-town yesterday (well technically today - midnight on the dot). Have you ever tried to sleep with a couple candied-up kids around? I found out, quickly, that it is an impossible task...but I digress.
My parents have some things to do today (errands, work, etc), so good ol' Aunt Ginyah is going to be the Event Coordinator for the day. Considering today is a "Cheat Day" from my diet, this will be dangerous. hahaha! Cookies, candy, ice cream and pizza - WATCH OUT! We always have an amazing time when they're in! I try to make things extra special for them. I remember being that age looking up to my several aunts (my dad being the only boy out of eight children and my mom has an older sister).
One of my most prominent memories is my aunt Sissy and her crafts. I thought that was the neatest thing EVER! One particular item she made was this gorgeous, pearlescent pinecone Christmas ornament. I wanted that thing for years! It wasn't until Christmas before last she surprised me with it. I'll have to find that picture and attach it for your viewing pleasure - I'm making a crazy "YES! It's MINE!" Gollum-like face.
Anyway...once I get off the air this morning, I'll head home to freshen up and receive my orders from my favorite 4 and 7 year-old.
Wish me luck!
