|Erin with her family|
|Okay, so this isn't Erin. But this is exactly how she would carry these boys.|
It must be a family talent.
|Happy Erin with a happy Dylan|
I call Erin every now and then when I want someone to talk to and I always enjoy the chance to chat. Quite frankly, it makes my day that she always seems so happy that I called. She's on the computer quite a bit too and so I like to write her e-mail because she's usually very good about writing right back.
Erin likes to shop and I hear (from my girls, and Russell, and Tanya) that she is fun to shop with. I think I'd like to peak and see how many shoes she owns. She shops both in stores and online and has been known to sell a thing or two on ebay, which I think is brave because, well, because it would make me nervous to do that.
When our kids are opening presents slowly we tell them to "open it like Aunt Erin!" Because of her childhood habit of sneaking a peak at her wrapped gifts, I still wonder if Russell dares put any of her presents anywhere in the house before Christmas -- or maybe she just buys her own now, but I think Russell has managed to surprise her a few times.
Erin makes me smile. She's just so creative and quick witted. She reminds me of her Mom in the way she can take a rather daunting task and tackle it with a positive attitude and the thought that if we just get to work, we'll get done soon. She also seems to have inherited, or developed, the gift of keeping a positive attitude even when sleep isn't very abundant. All the same, I hope that she got a good nights sleep before her birthday and that today is a totally awesome day for her. She won't want me to be too mushy, but I love her, and hope she has a happy birthday!
|This is to let Erin see the lone picture she would have had on here if I hadn't gotten some off of her Picasa web album.|
