Loved like crazy

This weekend I went up to visit my precious nieces and nephew that live in Louisville..

Every now and then I take off my career woman hat and put on my Auntie Rach hat. It's one of my favorite things to do because my full time job is to love on these munchkins... and squeeze on those little thighs (seen above). 

Don't get me wrong- I know a house full of kids is hard work. It's non-stop and tests your energy, patience and... I'm getting tired just thinking about it. If any of you are stay-at-home parents, props to you! 

But all tantrums aside--- their joy is contagious... you can't deny it.
