Surprise, Surprise!

We had a very nice surprise yesterday! Our nephew (who is 16!) came to town with a friend of his. His friend's brother is going to college here and they were here helping to move him into his apartment. We got to take our nephew out for ice cream last night and it was great! The kiddos thought it was especially awesome as it was 9pm!!! My children don't often get to be outside when it's dark.

This is the first time Jordan has been able to join our family without his parents, grandparents, or little sister. Jordan was his own man. We didn't get to visit nearly long enough, but it was nice and I think a taste of things to come. I'm excited about the opportunity to know him and Taylor as adults. The relationship will change, but there is nothing like being an aunt (or grandparent, so I've heard) to get to love on someone without having to discipline, etc.

Jordan is a delight to our family. He loves on our kiddos and is a great "big" cousin. He even put LeeLee in her carseat last night and was able to buckle her in, thankyouverymuch! Any of you who have tried our car seat puzzle before know this is quite the accomplishment!

Jordan, thanks for hanging out with your old aunt and uncle and loving on your cousins! We love you!

I can only imagine what N and L were thinking..."this must be special." A fun memory for them.
