Aunt Emily loves to spoil the girls.


The girls have a lot of fun when Aunt Emily comes to visit.  Too much fun, sometimes.   Like the time Aunt Emily let #1 put Vaseline all over her hair (if you haven’t seen those pictures, you should definitely click over)!

This visit was no different.  Aunt Emily did not disappoint.

She stayed home with each of the girls on separate days, so they got their fill of Auntie Em time.

With #1, she baked cookies (using only a 1/2 cup extra of shortening).

With #2, she let her eat her beloved “gogur” (yogurt) for all of her meals.

Definitely win-win for all parties involved.

On Friday, Aunt Emily went out and played tourist all on her own.

I think she had some sort of guilt thing going on.

After we picked up the girls, she insisted on getting them slushies/slurpies.  I’ve given up trying to argue.  It’s not worth fighting with Aunt Emily anymore.


Yep, they each got their own.

And, they both loved them.  (And, thank goodness Aunt Emily had the sense to get them a dye-free flavor…even if it tasted like Pina Colada).

See, Aunt Emily never disappoints.  She spoils our girls rotten.  And we wouldn’t have it any other way.

(Of course, I can’t wait for Aunt Emily to have kids of her own one day to repay all of her favors).
