Last week, Michael (Daryl's paternal uncle) was in town (from Olathe, Kansas!) with his boys Josh & Jake. Now I get to see these guys about once a year, twice if they're lucky. In between visits, we IM and email each other....especially Jake. Josh is super a super busy high school guy, while Jake, well, is in 7th grade and has time on his hands :) I can go on and on about these guys. Josh is super tall, shy, and very affectionate. Jake is a loud little whipper snapper, and smart as a whip. They both are, but Jake is very....verbal :) He has a quick wit and extremely fast come-backs. He's 13 years old, but when he signs off with me he says stuff like 'later, babe'. He's tooooo funny. Anywayyyyyy. Jake asked Dee if Mia and I were gonna drive to Dripping Springs to see them. Dee emailed me, and we were there in about an hour. I wouldn't miss seeing these guys for anything. Jake and I used to play a game of pool, and if (when) he lost, he's have to give me a hug. This time, I just told him that we should save time, he KNEW I'd beat him, so just give me a hug already. He did. :)Mia was well aware of the guys, but refused to make eye contact with them. Jake even reminded her that on the last visit, he fed her cheese :) They guys each gave her a big pieces of a cookie, but NO, she wasn't going to acknowledge them at all. Later, Mia wanted to watch a clip of Yo Gabba Gabba on youtube. She sat on Jake's lap the whole time. Oh, Michael brought down a little wooden rocking chair that both guys used when they were little. It's for Mia and Gwen to share. It's the cutest thing, and Mia LOVES it. Josh, Jake and I hung out on the sofa....I was trying to watch American Idol with Aunt Janice, who was also visiting. The guys took turns farting....toooooo close to me. You know it's bad when I can tell their farts apart. What is it with boys and farts?!?! The BEST part was when Mia and I were on our way out. Jake gave me a long hug, and said 'you smell like blueberries. I like blueberries'. I swear he has me wrapped around his finger, but I'm sure the feeling is mutual.
