Every summer when my oldest sister from Oklahoma (...where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain...), comes, we all get together and bask in our hilariousness. Generations of humor combine to create of force of happiness. It's much like what I imagine heaven to be like.
So, this summer visit did not disappoint. In fact, we were able to celebrate a new generation of hilarity. I'm now a great aunt. That's a big deal (in case you aren't already on your feet applauding). I got to hold and snuggle and fill my new baby needs. (Phew. Now I don't feel like I need another one of my own.) Don't think for a moment that it stops there. No. No. Being a great aunt doesn't just happen once over here. Come November, I'll be great again. A little baby boy decked out in Nike--just my style--is on his way.
You'll have to bear with me as I post a bunch of photos of aforementioned awesome family. Because really, I have to document another home imporvement project completed by the Bean family. They now know how to install vinyl siding, they can lay sod like a boss, and hanging sheetrock is a breeze for them--they don't even need a ladder. (We always seem to have some huge project going on and our family always comes to our rescue.)
