Five on Friday: Nieces and Nephew

Living 12 hours away from home is probably one of the hardest things I have ever done in my entire life. I.am.SUCH. a family person, who was gifted with a wonderful family. My nephew just turned 7 November 15th and my niece will turn 6 December 15th. And on top of them getting so big, I have a new niece that I have only met one time since her birth in June. How depressing! 

Thanksgiving you can't come soon enough! With all of that crying over with I wanted to dedicate this Five on Friday to my wonderful, amazing, adorable, and brilliant nieces and nephew.

Five reasons I love being an Aunt:

I am pre-warning you before you continue that a large amount of bragging with begin immediately! 

1. I get to look at these adorable faces all the time
This would be the first of my 3 wonderful kiddos. He just turned 7 this week and reminds me TOO much of my brother!

And then there is this angel faced child. Don't let her adorable face fool you though she is a sassy little princess!

How cute right? This little rugrat is only 4 months old and rocks headbands like no other little kid!

2. I never have to be the bad guy
When one of them sits on the other one, I get to sit back and laugh while my brother yells at them. Perfect! 
I will admit that I let them do bad things, well because I'm the cool aunt!

3. I can buy them cool toys and clothes, but it doesn't have to be spread all over your house. And you never have to buy them anything practical. 
Yeah when Isaac shoots daddy in the head with the marshmallow shooter Josh and I bought him, I may get a call from my brother all mad, but who cares Isaac had fun! We also get to buy them hungry hungry hippo and sit on the kitchen floor and play it with them (we acted like we didn't enjoy it!) 

4. They call you cool things. Like Auntie Ang. I feel like I'm straight out of the Wizard of Oz (Auntie Em, Auntie Em!) 
This little one will have to learn to talk before she catches on to the cool names, but the headband makes up for it!

5. They provide me with endless entertainment


The silly faces are 100% gifted from their Auntie Ang! 

Okay, Okay bragging over! 
Why do you love being an Aunt or Uncle?
