Why everyone needs an Aunt Leanne

 Why everyone needs an Aunt Leanne...

She's affectionate

...very, very affectionate!

 She comes to visit and brings gifts

 ...then she helps unwrap them!

She tidies up!
(A good quality even if it does mean wadding up outfits with tags on them and shoving them in the blanket drawer for me to stumble upon later - hey, at least they're put away!)

She dishes up a hearty meal

...and reads a captivating story!

And it's the little things in life that go a long way in expressing our gratitude to Aunt Leanne; the little things like "footies".  If you don't know what footies are, they're warm, furry socks. But don't dare call them "socks" - Leanne will get mad!  They're footies darn it!  And Leanne collects them and wears them every day - all year long!  So it was like winning the lottery when Leanne was gifted with 8 new pairs of footies.
She literally threw them in the air and let them rain down on her - talk about a dream come true!  We received the following email expressing her gratitude:

No, Leanne - YOU are the best! 


  1. Omg I love that she throw them up in the air. If only everyone was that enthusiastic. She is a great Auntie :)

  2. My granddaughter Allison loves her Aunt Bethy the way your daughter loves Aunt Leanne!!

    And I love footies too! Wear them all the time when I'm at home! (I'd wear them out - only them - if I could!) :)

  3. So sweet!


  4. You are so right, if only everyone did have an Aunt Leanne the world would be a better place!

  5. Such a darling - Evie has aunts but none like Aunt Leanne!

  6. Uh oh. I think Jace wants an Auntie Leanne for his birthday.

  7. OMG! I grew up with footies! Another reason to love Aunt Leanne:)

  8. Red Pink Blue Green - HALLOWEEN???
    Why, on top of everything else, Aunt Leanne is a POET!!

  9. You are right, everyone should have an Aunt Leanne! What isn't there to love about her?! I hope my girls grow up loving their sister and appreciating her as much as you do yours!
