My South Carolina Discoveries

When I was leaving South Carolina, my sister apologized that we didn't do anything while I was there. While we didn't ever really leave her house, we did so much. I discovered so much about life that I didn't know before. I discovered....
1. That I have pirates for nephews. What a surly, scary bunch. :)

2. That it might be entirely possible to be kissed to death. (My daughter and nephew)
#3. That making a pumpkin pie from complete scratch, makes the pie look darker than when you use canned pumpkin.
#4. I can make sparkling Jello even though Jello took their brand of sparkling jello off the market.
#5. I found out that my sister's minivan is actually amazing to drive and it scared the heck out of me to find myself saying that I didn't mind driving a mini-van.
#6. That two-year-olds can sleep sitting up in a hamper.
#7. That putting me on a scooter has serious entertainment value. I drove up someone's lawn because I couldn't get it turned around.
#8. All you have to do to be considered the world's best aunt, is make your pirate nephews flubber.
#9. I should move to South Carolina if I want to go frog catching.
#10. Fireflies do exist! I saw my first one ever.
and last but not least, I discovered that anyone with twins is my hero. What an incredible amount of energy two babies take.
See, sis, we did more than you know.

Sisters are the best, especially when you both have kids!

I don't think there's a kid on the planet who doesn't love Flubber! :-) Great idea.

I cannot imagine how much work it must be to have twins!
