We are Family!

Cousins (minus seven cousins and three second cousins!)
Me and my baby sister "Smooch"
Lots of kissing goin' on

In 2000 I moved across country...away from my family. I've missed birthdays and graduations...ball games and dance recitals...ups and downs...and growing up and growing older. And whenever I come back to visit I realize the thing I have missed most is simply family.
Tonight we had a get together...lots of food, hugs, and laughter...with highlights of leg wrestling,
"cousins" photo shoots, and Texas sheet cake with sprinkles! What a wonderful family that Matthew has become part of...he is dearly loved by them all. And I dearly love them all.

Hey Tish!! Long lost BBFF!! :) What great pictures - I was so happy to see a few posts from you, and glad you're having such an awesome time hanging out with your peeps!! :) Looks like you are one blessed mama to have all that wonderful family!! Matthew must be totally basking in all the attention. :)

Well, keep us posted on everything, and let your mom know that we're praying for her! I've never met her, but God has laid such a burden on my heart to keep her in my prayers!! Please tell her for me that I am asking God in faith for her healing!!!!

Love,
Rebecca
