Eric met my aunt for the first time in the summer and she stated that she would like to capture his eyes so she could place them over top of my uncle Doug's face while they were having sex so she could look longingly into them. So besides going in on a gift with all of my cousins, Eric and I got a picture of his eyes blown up for her. She thought it was a hoot and showed everyone at the party. Glad to get a full faced smile out of her. That was the intention and we were glad she remembered her original comment and laughed.
The night ended with some drama that I was just as glad to not have been witness to, but back at my aunt Lana's we sadly got to witness the aftermath. I'm sure things are all sorted out now and it was probably just a stupid misunderstanding, but it lead to a really, REALLY good conversation with one of my favourite relatives. Eric hung out with my aunt Sheila and her family, a few of my cousins and my uncle Tom in his work shop til 5 a.m. while my aunt Lana and stayed up to about 3 a.m. talking. She's an amazing person (of which I already knew but our conversation just reinforced it). She will do anything for the people she loves. Maybe her heart is too big for her own good. She wants the best for her family and she will never stop trying. Her heart is gold. And I love her so much.
