A few months ago Jay’s niece came to visit, and we were lucky enough to get to spend an afternoon with her!  We don’t get her alone often, because she’s in high demand with the family, so we were super psyched to play with her for a whole afternoon.

In our quest to be the Favorite Aunt and Uncle (ha), we decided that cupcake making was going to be the weapon of choice for the day.

I’ll tell you about the cupcakes coming up next, but this was quite possibly the cutest thing to watch EVER.  A large bald uncle educating his tiny niece on the finer points of glitter sprinkles?

I’m in.

The cupcakes turned out decent at best, which we’ll discuss later, but the decorations?


Naturally, Jay is teaching the little one the art of Being Annoying Whenever Possible, and it’s going pretty well so far.

Sigh.  At least SHE’S cute.

We had a blast, and can’t wait to do it again.  I love seeing Jay with his niece and nephew…he’s so much more normal than when children he loves aren’t present.

What’s your favorite niece/nephew activity?
