Cousin Time and a Last Visit


Sam and his family came in April to visit grandparents.  



Little did we know how insightful Sam was.  This would be the last time we would be all together.  


We enjoyed some very competitive basketball games.  






Our kids are so blessed to have so many cousins.  










Enjoyed good stories. 

Loved having a baby in the house.  

Watched sporting events.  


Loved our Cousin Time.  







Watched Stevie play lacrosse.  Good thing he wore his red pads so we can find him on the field.  





Played some cousin football games.  












Love this family of mine.

Let Them Eat Cake- Turning 13!

My very sweet daughter turned 13!  Can hardly stand it that she is 13.  She really wanted to have a Paris themed birthday.  We decided to have a "Let Them Eat Cake" birthday in honor of our Paris trip.  


The girls made little "Marie Antionettes."
