I Heart My Cousins!

I've heard it said that our cousins are our
first friends and I think that's true. 

Ellis cousins: Kelly Rae, Gregory & me, probably circa 1970
We were always close when we were little.

I was blessed to have wonderful cousins
on both sides of my family and lots of them!

Kelly Rae, me & Gregory again, Summer 2010
We still love each other!

I'm sure we had our share of childhood
squabbles but I only remember loving them all.

Frye Cousins: Susie, me, Diana, Junior & my brother Ray
December 2006

Today I'm thankful for my cousins ...
I love you all!
(The pictures posted don't come close to representing
everyone I'd like to include ... I've got a lot of cousins! :)

& her daughter Stasha Lynne

Me & my cousins Trinka & Dawn on 'Sea Boots' my uncle (their daddy's) boat,
in Long Beach, CA, circa 1964. Trinka & I were 3, Dawn was 9.

Trinka Leigh & I, July 1976, age 15, as
bridesmaid in Dawn's wedding
She & I were very close growing up -- we were only
six-weeks apart (yes, I was the oldest ;)
