Another weekend... wahoo!

Ahh the weekend. I’m SO looking forward to this weekend (almost as much as I was last weekend, but I can’t get my hopes up again. I hate it when I get crushed… so sad!). I’m flying to McAllen, TX to visit my little sister (well, younger… by 9 months, 3 weeks, and 5 days!) and her cute cute family! My youngest niece, Ainsley, is turning one year old. What fun! I believe the plans include hanging out at the beach, and soaking up some rays. WaaaHOO! This white girl could use some serious pigment enhancement if you know what I mean.

Arissa (my oldest niece) has a burgeoning vocabulary. She’s 5 years old, and loves it when she learns big words. She called me other day at work, and our conversation went something like this…

Heather: Hello?
Arissa: Hiiiiiiiii Heather!
Heather: Hi Rissa! How’s it going? Whazzup?
Arissa: Nothing, just playing my game.
Heather: Cool…..
Arissa: Heather, I just realized something.
Heather: You just realized something? What did you realize?
Arissa: I just realized that you are my mommy’s sister.
Heather: That’s right! I am your mommy’s sister.
Arissa: I know. I just realized that.
Heather: You know what?
Arissa: What?
Heather: Because your mommy is my sister, that makes me your Aunt.
Arissa: Nooooo. Silly Heather, you are not an ant. I squish ants with my feet.
Heather: I am! I am!
Arissa: Nooo you are not.
Heather: Are you being a stinker?
Arissa: No! Heather, I’m not stinky. Micheal is stinky. He has stinkies ALL the time. Gross!
Heather: I agree, that’s pretty gross.

Other rambles continued on as our conversations generally do. It cracks me up that she “realized” something and that she was able to pair it up with Bekki and I. Kids, they’re pretty amazing sometimes!

I know there's a scrapbooking shoppe that we pass on the way to the beach. Hopefully we'll get to stop in, and I can do some scoping. I'd love to pick up a few more things to add to my stash! Tee hee hee! I have PLENTY of luggage space this time! I'm loaded with fun for Bekki, Shaun and the kiddos! I am SO looking forward to some of the new products being released. I'll do a seperate post on them for your oogling pleasure!

I’ll catch you back on Monday when I return with oodles of photos! I’ll be chillaxing on the beach with a frosty beverage to keep me cool!
