i love my family

Meet Uncle Ricky, Aunt Julie, Jena and Josh 🙂  I just love my family.  I’ve been editing a bunch of pictures I took before the holidays for my family and everyday it just makes me smile.  I have been reminded lately how incredibly blessed I am with great people to call family.  I grew up taking it for granted just thinking that everyone else had such awesome folks to hang out with on holidays and the occasional Sunday morning for Grandpa’s waffles (which we haven’t done in quite a while, uh hmmm.  hint 😉 )  I don’t think it started to sink in until I got into high school and when I would talk about my cousins and I got the impression that other just “didn’t get it”.  My cousins, Jena and Kelsie (you’ll meet her later) especially, were much like siblings to me growing up.  We spent so much time together.  We even had our own radio station … Kaaaaaayyyyy Ceeeeee Jayyyyyyyyy.  yeah you guessed it. Kelsie. Crystal. Jena. We were highly creative, lol! Uncle Ricky made several guest appearances on our show, singing such hits as “Under the Boardwalk”.  Oh what memories.  I am a little sad that Mia Grace may not have the same experiences … um, Jena, if you could go ahead and get married and have a baby already, that would be great 😉  just kidding.

PS. Guys, no emails or comments please begging for Jena’s number 😉 … she is single though!

 

Anyway, I love you all so very much and even though as time passes it seems we dont get to see each other as often, you all hold a very special place in my heart!  Love you.  Oh, and Josh can you please stop growing … its just wrong how tall and grown up you are!!
