I have the cutest cousins

I love my cousins, they are so cute! My aunt is 12 years older than me and 12 years younger than my mom so she feels more like an older sister to me than an aunt. Her and her husband, Dave, live in the Houston area and have two kids - Ashton and Savannah. They are so much fun and feel more like my neice and nephew rather than cousins.

A few weeks ago I made a trip down there to visit and have my Uncle Dave, a foot surgeon, look at my heel that had been bothering me. (slightly afraid that I would get a lecture on my love for high heels and the grim future of my stiletto wearing feet) He said I had a calcium something or other on my heel bone and needed a shot right into it - yikes. I don't do needles.

So I'm freaking out a little and eight year old Ashton asks if I want him to hold my hand, so cute. So he holds my hand while Dave sprays my heel with cold spray to semi-numb it for the first of three injections. Next thing I know I'm squeezing Ashton's little hand to death and he calmly says "Dad, I think she needs more cold spray".

I hope I didn't give him permanent hand damage. He sure made me feel better and laugh a little! And I'm happy to report that I'm back to wearing heels pain free! I just love living so close to them and going down to visit, they just grow up too fast! Now I sound old...

That's so cute! Your cousin, not the foot thing. The foot thing looks painful.
