Friday Smile - SuperAunt!

This past Sunday my sister and brother-in-law had to head out of town so I arrived at their house around 7:30am to watch their two oldest boys (The oldest will be 5 next month and the 2nd oldest is 2).  My Mom was set to take over later that day, I didn't end up leaving until around 6pm.  It was a fun filled day but I was happy to crawl into bed for some rest.

The day before my sister put this on my facebook ball:
Hey Kris! I few minutes ago I asked Isaac why he was doing "push ups". He said "I'm exercising because Aunt Kris wears me out sometimes and exercising gives me energy so that I can wear her out instead!" So get ready for tomorrow...they're going to be ready for you! :)
The two ticket tellers

The first order of business, we played football inside. lol!  We then played a ticket teller game.  I would buy tickets from them for various things, whatever I came up with, and they would normally join me since it sounded like fun.  We "watched" a couple movies, we went out for ice cream, we went to a soccer game, baseball game, and rugby game.  I know we did other things, but now I can't remember what. lol!

We played on the swingset outside, we played soccer inside (several times), we played with trucks, we made chocolate chip cookies, and we played hide and seek.  All this was done before lunch. lol!

After lunch the youngest and I headed downstairs to watch a show before his nap.  I told the oldest that it was quite time, I was going to read while his brother napped.  He decided he would play a video game he got for Christmas.  I did have some quite time to read for about an hour before the oldest was ready to play with me again (and how could I resist?).

All in all, I would say we had a lot of fun, although it left me tired.  I sure hope they slept well for my Mom that night!

Helping me make cookies
I gave them each a very small piece of dough to eat, and next thing I knew this one was licking the "cookie dough" that he had been playing with  (I gave them a small amount of each ingredient to mix together and pretend like they were making dough)

Dare I say this is a budding musician?   His older brother and I were sitting on a day bed cheering him on and giving him a standing ovation when he was finished.  I suggested we record it and both boys got excited about that.

Being an aunt is so much fun and it sounds like you're a fabulous one!

I enjoyed reading about your time with your nephews. It so reminds me of the good times with my bro's kids when they were young. Not having my own kids, I'm very happy I have those memories. :-)

Su-sieee! Mac - Isn't being an Aunt fun? Just like you, I don't have any kids, so it's a lot of fun to spend time with my nephews.

What a fun and exhausting day! I'm glad you had a good time, Kris!
