They have my heart!

For the past 12 years I have had the honor of being an auntie.   It has been one of the best things in my entire life.  The love I feel for these two precious kids is incomprehensible.  It is huge.  They have my heart and they always will.

They spent the night with Jer and I this weekend.  When I went to pick them up, I was greeted before I even made it all the way out of the car.  They both had handmade birthday cards for me.  I am loved and it is wonderful.

I have been so quick to fast forward through the Fall this year.  I have something big taking place this winter and I guess I'm anxious to get there.  Having Livi and Grant over this weekend gave me the chance to slow down and enjoy the Fall, which is my favorite season, and have a little Halloween fun. 

We made mummy dogs for supper and sipped apple cider.  We got in our jammies, stopped at the corner store (Corner House Store, as Grant calls it) to grab some snacks, and the four of us set out to Romeo to see all the cool Halloween houses on Tillson Street. 

After a fun night, we settled in at home.  I woke up early the next day to make everyone breakfast.  I love these two kiddos so much.
