30 X 30 - The best job in the world!

(Following a friend's example, in honor of my 30th birthday I have decided to post 30 things I have accomplished in my life in 30 years.  So for the remaining 24 days leading up to my birthday watch for a new post each day celebrating these 30 things.)

This is absolutely not my accomplishment so much as my siblings' accomplishments, but in my 30 years the BEST job in the world has been to be an aunt to Kate Ashton, Charlie Phillip, Madeline Rose, Will Randall and Jack Vincent - the five most amazing kids on the planet!

Like I said... these are not necessarily all accomplishments on my part.  Rather these are all things that have happened in my life in the last 30 years to shape who I am today.  I couldn't have become....

...without first becoming an aunt.  So these 5 amazing kiddos have certainly shaped who I am today.  I could tell you about each amazing thing they do, how crazy pants smart they are, how loving they are, or the awesome things they say every time we get together.... but instead I'll just say that being an aunt to these 5 is the best job in the world.  I can't ask for a better job and only hope that all aunts get to experience half the fun I get to have. :D

 The first time I met Jack Vincent... at the KCI airport. ;) (One of two I met in the airport!)

Will Randall after his first plane ride, visiting me in 'tucky (Kentucky)

Madeline Rose - Together we'll be the youngest Phillips' woman in our generation - and together we can be the sassiest too!

Charlie Phillip has ALWAYS been a little lover - he breaks my heart every time I see him asking me when I will "come home" - love his hugs!

 Kate Ashton - the first... and probably the most like me... God help her.... because I'm sure God is the only that can love her more than me :)

 How can you not love them all?
