My Favorites...

I just drove back from El Paso yesterday after a three day visit with family and friends. I was able to spend time with four of my favorite people in the whole wide world.

This is Eliza. She is my sister's 17 month old little princess and for three nights she was one of my roomies. I already miss her sweet babble and her stories. She's a lovely story teller.

This next picture is of Nicole (and my brother). She's my brother's oldest daughter. She'll tell you she's not a little kid any more...she's five. This little girl is smart, sweet and so funny. We have some pretty good verbal sparring. She totally understands sarcasm and can joke like a champ.

On Tuesday I accidentally called her a very bad name in Spanish. Being bilingual she knew what I called her and said she was going to call the cops on me. On my way out of town I visited my friend Diana and told her what I had called Nicole. She started laughing and said I had called my five year old niece a b!@#h. Oops.

Note to self: Don't use words in another language that I'm not completely sure of the meaning.

This is Natalie (NatNat). She will be three in September and for an almost three year old she already knows what she wants in life...whatever her brother or sister have. Making this girl laugh makes my day every time.

Then there's Joey. He'll be one on Sunday. He makes my heart melt.

I love these four kiddos with all my heart. I also love that they all have parents who would walk through fire for them.
