You might remember these two.
They're my cousin Erin's kids, Mateo and Elisa, and technically therefore my cousins. Mom is their aunt (technically great aunt I believe) and was christened Aunt Huggy (Peggy) by Elisa. I became Uncle Shaun, because who cares about grownup rules? Having a niece and nephew named Elisa and Mateo feels much more correct than having cousins.
I did just a touch of uncleish spoilin', and the following are thank-you cards I picked up at the post office today.
From nephew Mateo:
|Mateo is rather interested in Minecraft.|
|I think this is a depiction of the ranch. It's remarkably accurate!|
|And more! I need to study up! There's a lot of information in these pictures!|
From niece Elisa:
|Elisa and her monster friend. They've both got such pretty eyes!|
What a great trip we had!
