Last week, my mom and I (and the girls, of course,) drove down and visited my Great-Aunt Colleen.
I consider her more of a grandma to us now, and when I grow up, I want to be a grandma just like her.
She loved meeting Elanora and has the energy and imagination to keep up with the antics of Katie and Victoria.
Aunt Colleen has a magical hallway full of dolls and a wonderful homemade doll house made out of a bookshelf-like structure. I remember spending hours in this hallway myself with my sisters, and I love watching my own daughters enjoying the same toys now!
The girls were entranced. When it was time to go, Katie pleaded with me to “stay here forEVER!”
I want my house to be that kind of place someday that kids never want to leave.
I hope someday to be even half as awesome as Aunt Colleen.
