Graduating Cousins

Saturday we took a long drive for a special event...one of our nieces graduated from high school.  Actually two of them will be graduates after this next weekend.  The oldest one was staying with her grandparents for the year and graduated from the same high school that her mom graduated from 20 years ago.  Her sister who is only 11 months younger (yes, you read that right!) will be graduating from a southern high school this coming Saturday.  We are so, so, so proud of them and so happy we could be there for their open house and at least one graduation.

These girls were the flower girls in our wedding 15 years ago on May 23.  They were absolutely precious that day in their dresses made by Dobbie (she made my dress also).

We had a wonderful time seeing Daddy's side of the family. We don't get to see them often since we are all spread out. I think we all say, "I wish we lived closer," a few times when we are together. We all get along and we always have a great time. I guess absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Here we all are except for one of us!  That's pretty good!

Here are all of the cousins together. Aren't they a good looking bunch?

The three younger cousins idolize the only boy cousin.  They attack him when they see him and he LOVES it.  He plays and plays and teases and teases them.  He made this picture below his Facebook profile pic.  I mean, really?  What a sweet guy.  I don't know alot of teenage boys that would do that.

The girls ALWAYS look forward to seeing their uncle.  They have a special place in his heart, I do believe.
