My Aunt Jean

Chloe and my Aunt Jean have recently developed a special friendship. Chloe discovered that Aunt Jean loves to watch Animal Planet as much as she does. Last time Jean visited and stayed with my parents Chloe spent the night, too. She and Jean stayed up late watching Animal Planet and spent the rest of the time either watching or talking about it.

Jean is my Dad's sister and they have always been close. My Mother said she remembers the first time she saw my Dad. He was carrying Aunt Jean's books for her on the bus. She always had him carry her books and open doors for her. She said she was teaching him how to be a gentleman. He followed along willingly and she was a good teacher.

Jean has so much imagination! She loves to tell stories and make up stories. And she has a heart as big as Texas. She will take on the hurt of the world. She has always been my favorite aunt. As a matter of fact, my middle name is Jean. After guess who? It's so neat to see my daughter having a special relationship like I had with Aunt Jean. But then, she makes everyone feel special.

Recently Chloe and Jean have started emailing. Chloe's emails are so cute and Jean's emails are full of spirit, creativity and love. We all need a little "Aunt Jean" in our lives.

Webkinz Visit Sleepyhead

Chloe and I made this slide show one day when Spike was fast asleep. He didn't move a muscle as she placed her Webkinz, one after another, on top of him. Sorry it's a bit slow, it's the fastest I could get it to go. Enjoy!
