First cousins again.........this time arranged in order of height. There was quite a bit of laughter and joking around while we were organizing these photos. Arranging the cousins in order of age and height for photos was a family tradition--"Just like we used to when we were little!" could be heard above the laughter.

Family Reunion and Birthdays - July 8, 2007
Yesterday was my DH's birthday and my SIL's birthday. My husband and his sister were born on the same date six years apart. While growing up, my SIL told everyone that my husband was more her brother than anyone else's (there were 4 other siblings around at that time) because my husband was born on her birthday!
We were together as a family yesterday to celebrate the reunion of the families of my FIL and his sister. Both my FIL and his sister are now deceased. It has been at least 30 years since this branch of the family has gotten together.
