I Miss My Cousins.

I haven't blogged in a long time.
I haven't blogged stalked in a long time either (except the couple of HOURS I spent on craft blogs before Halloween to find something cute and free with which to decorate our Tree House).
So I just want to put out in cyber space, this; I haven't stayed in touch with my cousins and I miss it.

Why? Because unlike many people, my cousins are some of my closest friends.
 We aren't all in this picture. And a lot of us have spouses. And a lot of couples have children.
For example:
A little blurry, yes, but still SO adorable. Little Jaela :)

The reason I am missing my family is not because I am unhappy or bored or anything like that. (I am so happy that I am soon changing the name of this blog to something happier than "Lemon Tree.")
No, it is because my family has meant more to me over the past couple of years than it ever has before.

From losing Steven, to losing Rolf, to losing Grandpa, to our nearly losing Jaela, and all the happy and sad in between, we have become so much closer than we have ever been before. I now KNOW that families truly are a divine organization, and the most important organization.
I love my family: My Grandma's, Aunt Cristy, all my aunts and uncles, my cousins, my two nieces, my parents, Steph, Brian, Eric, my wonderful in-laws, and last but definitely not least, Robert.

I'm excited for the Holidays and spending time with both sides. Yipee!
