The Crazy Aunts

Meet the crazy aunts.

Seated: My cousin Missy, tie for craziest Aunt Metria, Aunt Patsy, and my brother, The Boss Man.
Standing: Me, least crazy Aunt Carol, tie for craziest Aunt Neva, and my sister, The Manager.
Two aunts and an uncle are missing from this pic!!


Each time I come home from a visit, I want to write a great blog post describing just how wonderful my aunts are.

But each time, I find my writing lacking. I can't find the words that I want.

The words to describe how much fun we have. The words to describe their strength, their selflessness. The words to describe the knowledge that they will always be there. No matter what.
