Xmas with the Cousins



Ok, so this isn't even ALL of them!! My Hubby is one of 11 children! There are 7 full brothers and sisters, and 4 half, although the family is VERY close you would never know the split, they are called the 7/11 gang! So these are the cousins from the group of 7, missing the 2 babies who I am sure were busy eating since that is all the baby Dels seems to be doing lately.

Ok, so here are the babies...
This is the newest cousin, isn't she a sweety! She looks sooo much like her big sister. We are going to have so much fun with all these cousins growing up together! She makes Dels look huge now, I thought she was still my little newborn teeny tiny baby, but now she looks like a toddler ready to run! Ok, so maybe that would be a bit of an overachiever at 3 months old, but seriously she does look so much bigger now. I remember when I brought Lolo home from the hospital, Molly was only 20 months old and the first time I changed Molly's diaper was the day I realized she wasn't my baby anymore- she was HUGE!


Here's Baby Dels in on of her many Xmas outfits! Being the youngest of 4 girls, we had our pick of the outfits, a new one for every party! It's so much fun! And because I didn't add this to my pictures yesterday, here is a picture of our cat- he enjoys the paper just as much as the kids. I can't wrap a present without him coming over to sit on the paper!

What a great family and great pictures. It's nice to have such a big family, isn't it? You have a beautiful cat. They want to be in the middle of everything, don't they? Have a good day. See you later. Kellan

how wonderful that your kids have so many cousins to hang out with...

great pictures!

I remember when my "baby" (now almost 4) was born, my other "baby" was 3 1/2, she came into the hospital room and I just cried...she looked so big and still blows me away everyday to look at her and see how big she is!

Crazy how fast they all grow.

Cute cousin picture. I love cousins. I only have 4 total and my hubby has more thatn he can count! I am excited for my kids to have lots of cousins. I come from 5 kids and hubby comes from 8.

Big Families are the best!

Love the pics. I bet it will be soo fun having all of the cousins living so close together. My oldest brother, who has 3 girls, lives really far away and my children hardly know those cousins. It's so sad.
I do remember changing my 21 month old's diaper when I had just come home from the hospital with the next. It was funny how all of a sudden he had all this leg that I had to manauver and get out of the way.

Such cute pictures! That is so great that your girls have so many cousins close by to visit and play with on a regular basis. My two SILs have five girls between them, and my two boys absolutely loved having their cousins close by for play dates, etc. when they were younger. Oh, and baby Dells does not look like a three year old toddler, she looks tiny and sweet! :) Your new little niece is adorable, too!

What cute kids!! Love the baby pictures. Cousins are great!

I'm happy my kids have so many cousins too, but they have a hard time keeping up with all of them from Jon's family. Gracie is always asking if so and so is a friend and a cousin or just a friend. She gets very confused.
