I hope she will forgive me

My cousin is shy. So I hope she doesn't mind me posting this pic of her when she was little. She's probably not quite 2 years old in this pic, which means I'm 9 in this pic.

But the reason I'm posting this pic, is that I'm just so happy that she's my family. Because aside from Jimmy's family, she is my FAMILY. We're not even true cousins, but it doesn't matter because she is much more like my sister than a cousin. And seeing how she's raising her own family now with her amazing husband who I also love to pieces, just makes me swell with pride that I can't keep it to myself. I love the girl. I love the woman and mother she's become.

And I loved that horse sweater so very very much.

Lucky you, to spend time in Seattle, I hear it's a great town with lots of places to see and things to do! And lucky you to spend time with your cousin and her family, bet you had lots of fun together.
Our Variety Show is finally over for another year so now I can get back to blogging and gardening and doing all those things I don't have time for while the show needs my attention!
And I love the horse sweater.
P.S. my new grandbaby only has a couple of weeks left before his/her grand entry into the world, I am SO EXCITED!
