The Adventures of Lucy

It's no secret how much I love my niece, Lucy.
She definitely has her Aunt CiCi and Uncle D wrapped around her finger. 
Well, Lucy spent the day at CiCi and D's house yesterday, and we had a BLAST!
Matt and Ellen had a wedding to go to last night, and I had already asked if we could have her for the day, so it worked out perfectly. I must say, she was pretty exciting to "go to CiCi's house."

We had a fun-filled day. She is talking so much now and says the funniest things that come from nowhere.  For example, her favorite song in the whole world is Willie Nelson's "On the Road Again" and she actually knows all the words! Well, in the way that a 2 year old knows the words...but she asks for it by request..."Widdie (willie)?" and as soon as the song comes on her little head starts bobbing and she dances around singing along. It's adorable.

Here is our fun day in pictures.

We walked to the park to swing. Look at that face of pure joy!

 Bunny wasn't having quite as much fun on her swing.
 Lucy could have stayed on the swing all day, unfortunately we started to hear thunder so we headed home.
 Where she danced to Uncle D's guitar and helped him play
 helped CiCi make birds nest cookies
 Look at her in my apron...cutest thing ever.
 our yummy cookies
She finger painted
 CiCi helped her make a bunny Easter card for momma and dada
 other masterpieces
we painted our toenails
 and watched some original Loony Tunes with D.

She did get one quick 20 minute nap in on our way to get dinner, so I'm sure she was a ball of fun for her momma and daddy last night...and today. 
Oh well, what are aunts for, right?  Spoil 'em then send 'em home. And she's just waaaay too easy to spoil.


  1. You are an amazing aunt and you are going to be one amazing mama one day. Miss Lucy is so precious, and so are you. :)
