Miss Thang - Niece #1

As you know, if you've been reading regularly, the boys and I just got back from visiting my sisters and their families in the Houston area. Well, it's time to meet my sisters' kids.

Today I'm going to post three times. Yes, THREE TIMES. Each post today will feature one of my sister K's daughters. K and her hubby Flyboy have three lovely girls, and I've introduced them before when they came to visit us, and we got them really, really dirty. hehe

Here's the oldest. We call her Miss Thang. She's ten years old. Look at that great smile.

This expression below is of a ten year old when she finds out a boy called fot her,
for the FIRST time.
As an aunt, I am honored to have been there for this occasion. It's a first I'll never see, because I don't have daughters. Miss Thang was sooo happy and excited. She was jumping all over the room. My boys, Donny and Remy, were in awe.
I think this boy was her first official boyfriend.
About ten minutes after this, she decided to break up with him.

My Donny enjoys hanging out with Miss Thang, because she's the cousin closest in age to him. They are about a year apart.

K and Flyboy have their hands full with this one.

She's got a killer smile, and she knows how to use it.

She and Donny....they're up to no good.
They're plotting something against the younger kids, I just know it.

On our trip to Space Center Houston, they both did the virtual flight pilot simulator thingy.

Miss Thang was a better pilot than Donny. Shh, don't tell him that.

Then again, her dad is Flyboy, so surely she has some flying in her genes.

She's beautiful, funny, and we're going to spend all next week with her and the rest of the gang at our family reunion deep in the heart of Texas at a river resort.

Stay tuned because later today I'll feature Miss Thang's sisters, The Monkey and Sweet Cheeks.

Tomorrow I'll feature my other sister's children, Wonderboy and Bunny.

She is a cutie! I love the part where she breaks up with the boy friend ten minuets later.

Jennifer said...

She is so beautiful!! I love the last picture of her the best... I think. :) I love them all.

Boy oh boy, they sure are going to have their hands full. But she looks like a good girl so not to worry too much. :)

I love that she and Donny get along well, that is always good when you are cousins to have someone close to your age that you can hang out with when family is together!! :)

That face is priceless... when the boy called her!! Makes my heart sink a little bit thinking about this with my girls. It seems like time just flies by. :S I'm glad that you were there to experience that with her... she seems so cute and sweet!! :)

Great way to introduce her to us... I bet she is just a GREAT kid!!

I will be checking back to meet the others!! :)

OHHH!!! and I so LOVE her dress in the first picture!! it is amazing!! I love the colors and the style!! VERY Cute!! I wish I could wear something like that but I don't wear dresses and I wish I could put something like that on my girls... but they are too little still...

BUT the dress is almost as pretty as Miss Thang is!! :)

What a sweet girl! How nice that they all had fun together.
I love the last picture!
And the one of her and Donny, well, you know since Jeff posted the 'caption' pic, I find myself trying to think of stuff to say. LOL So there it's like 'okay, cuz, here's the deal. You distract Remy and the others while I sneak up behind them and start splashing'

Looks like everyone had FUN!!!!

She is beautiful! I really like the last picture, very chic and glamorous.

Indy said...

She looks like a model in that last photo. And you are right, great smile. I bet she is excited to be on the internet. I would have loved this when I was her age.

Oh, I remember that post about getting the girlies dirty. That's great that all the cousins do so well together. And Miss Thang is a cutie. She and Katie should compare notes.
