A Month to be Thankful: Day 10

Day 10: Thankful for my Nephews

being an aunt is one of the greatest jobs. almost as great as being a mom, but not as quite. maybe it is the fact that it is your brother's kids and you have a special bond? don't know. but i do know that i have the privilege of being an aunt to two of the cutest boys ever, ethan and miles.

i treasure the moments when i get to be with them and spend time playing with trains, cars or running up and down grandma coco's hallways for about an hour, auntie dani is tired but ethan wants to play more. "come on dani." ;) and when ethan gets asked who he wants to come to his birthday party and he lists, "benny boo, uncle jophess." and his buddies, "coco and dani." those texts from kerry melt my heart. or feeding miles more food than i could ever image eating. my mom said i was a big baby too, so i guess we share the love for food.

and even though we are thousands of miles away and i can't see them in person everyday, i am so thankful and treasure the photos and opportunities to skype as i watch my two beautiful nephews grow up. so today, i am so thankful for them, their precious hearts and handsome faces.

Ethan and Miles
