Hoppy Friday! Grateful for being an Auntie and Uncle

Hi ya! Hoppy Friday!

This week I am grateful for David and I being an Auntie and Uncle. Our youngest niece, Noelle and our nephew Jonathan came to visit the other week.

We had so much fun together. Noelle went for walks with me in the morning. I loved how she noticed all the same simple things in life that I find to be so beautiful. She even house gawked like I do! hee,hee,hee.

Jonathan calls Uncle David his best friend. David enjoys teaching Jonathan how to do things like change the oil in the car and cut the grass. They also love to play video games together and oh, they love to drive around in David's ZL1 Camaro wearing their matching ball caps.

They stayed for a week. We went to see Maleficent, ate at Olive Garden, swam in Captain's pool and had a cookout. We went to see the fireworks for 4th of July and played at the park.

We laughed and laughed about all kinds of things like me trying to feed them healthy, buckwheat pancakes, which apparently are only liked by me. hee,hee,hee

Captain even took Noelle out shopping and surprised her with a new dress (not the one in the photo above). Both  kiddo's were pouty face on Sunday when it was time to leave. They asked if they could just stay for the entire summer. My sister would have been pouty face about that. ;)

I'm grateful these two remarkable kids think we are cool and enjoy spending time with us. I have always felt the same way about my aunt and uncle. :)

So what are you grateful for this week?

Light, love and hugs to you,
Michelle and the Bunnies

Aunties are absolutely special - as I sit here watching my own aunt snooze on the couch, lol!!! We've always had the most fun and I count her one of my bestest buddies. So glad you had such a good time being a wonderful aunt, Shell!

Good morning Shell! I am grateful for a lot, but after all is said and done, I'm grateful for FRIENDS. Without them (and you all), life wouldn't be the same.

Kids are awesome, aren't they!

I loved this post Shell. What a brilliant niece and nephew you have there, and being an Auntie and Uncle so Rocks!I'm so thrilled I can now do it over with our great nieces and nephew. I am so grateful for a quiet week with no neighbourhood problems disrupting lives, and for my kind and thoughtful friends.
Have a very happy hoppy

Fun Fun Fun, kids are so special (most of the time) Lovely to see things through their eyes, so innocent, why do we complicate things?

Looks like (with the exception of the buckwheat pancakes) a great week was had by all. I was that kind of Auntie when the kids were small and I am very grateful for the memories of those one on one visits. Today they are all adults. They still want to hang out with us and vacation with us on a regular basis.

So glad you had an enjoyable visit with your niece and nephew. I think you would make a wonderful Auntie!

I'm grateful for my wonderful husband, the love of my life and my soul mate. I am also grateful for my baby-with-paws, Digby. He continues to make me laugh and fills my heart with joy. He asked that I say hi to Harrington and Hannah from him. Hi!

Lucky you!

I am grateful no little kids are coming to stay! Been there, done that. Now it is more fun to go to THEIR house and pout about the food or having to leave. They usually shoo me out pretty quick!

Hi Michelle and Bunnies,

You must be the very best Auntie and Uncle and know how much your niece and nephew must enjoy coming to stay with you. Great photos and they will remember these happy times forever.
Hope you have a lovely weekend
