Cousins

Here are a few pictures from our visit with Aunt Carrie, Uncle Eric and Nathan so far! Included are pictures of Rachel's birthday - though we are celebrting again over the weekend with more family! These little cousins don't get to be together very often, so I am thrilled for this time we have and I'm enjoying capturing pictures of them!

I'm so happy to see these photos of all the cousins together -- a rare opportunity indeed! Aren't these the most absolutely darling children you've ever seen??? Can't wait to see all of you in person in a few days! Until then, we are glad you are having a great time together! Love, Mom

Carrie just sent me a message that Rachel & Emily look so alike and she is SO right. I just posted a picture of Emily and they look like they could be twins :) Those are wonderful pictures- time with cousins is the BEST! I always love being with my sister's children!

Yikes, I figured since you were out of town you wouldn't have any posts but I was wrong. I should have checked in a few days ago.

Aww, your kids look like they're having a blast! Did you think of any more ideas for the car ride boredum? We're off for our vacation in a week.

PS...dang, I missed this round of the Shoebox Swap. If you find someone who got 'rooked' because their partner dropped out, or if you need an 'extra', let me know!
