But she didn't stop there.
She went on about the photo in the "whiving room" where she is wearing "little pink jammies" and "Caphrine"(Catherine) is holding her, when she's a "bay-beeee"!
I was surprised that she had ever even paid attention to said photo, but yes, it is one of my favorites of my brother Larry's kids with mine, when K was only about 5 months old, during her first visit to Texas. And yes, it is framed in our living room.
don't they all kinda look alike? ;)
Back in the summer these same six kids hung out a bit while we visited family in Texas.
I love watching them together because they are all roughly the same age and my brother and his wife have two girls and a boy to our two boys and a girl. And well, "Caphrine" is a pretty good baby sitter already. :) I'll be honest, they were kinda over it after being together for over 24 hours straight but all in all they had a great time, eating donuts and getting rained out at the splash pad.
I enjoy giving them this time together because these are the cousins they are closest to and I had some of those when I was growing up and to this day, they are like the sisters I did not have.
Oh look! "Caphrine" is holding K again! And unfortunately only B's hand made it into this pic! p.s. Round Rock donuts are pretty awesome.
Oh, look, Caphrine is holding K AGAIN! ;-P
So, when I say "I miss my family" in the title above, it does not necessarily mean that I only miss my family now (although I do, A LOT) but I also miss the way my family was when I was younger and hanging with my own cousins. I just have such great memories and those were some pretty fun times...
I sincerely hope that my children can cherish these times NOW and take them for all they are worth.
We'll see you at Thanksgiving, cousins.
Get those arms ready, "Caphrine".
