The Next Best Thing to Being an Aunt

...being a great-aunt.

Last year at this time, two of our nieces became mommies for the first time. This whole past year I have referred to their babies as "our niece's son/daughter" but that changed for me this past weekend.


As I made cupcakes for K & JJ's first birthday celebration, I was struck by how much I love these little kids, and I finally allowed myself to embrace the fact that I am their great-aunt.



And it was so much fun to celebrate their first birthday this past weekend.

These little sweeties have made family life a lot sweeter this past year.
Happy first birthday, K and JJ!
Your {great-} aunt Deb loves you very much.
