Whats All The Excitement About....






After 4 years of living in Indiana, Brady's cousins are moving back home!  They will go from them being ten hours away...to just fifteen minutes up the road.  Brady is beyond EXCITED!  He has wished and dreamed of this day from the moment they left town.  And, I'm excited for him (and us too!).  I don't think Brady even realizes how different it's going to be.  He will no longer be the only kid at Grandma & Grandpa's house, at family reunions, cookouts, etc.  Maybe Thanksgiving won't be quite so boring this year!  The cousins will be arriving on Monday (oh yea, and my brother and sister in law are coming too!)...but Brady will have to wait until Tuesday to see his cousins...because I have my own exciting plans on Monday!  I can't wait!

Oh joy! I am so glad for you guys. We would love to have some cousins so close to us. We only get to see ours once or twice a year. You'll be loving having them nearby. Yay for Brady (and you!)

How great! Cousins are the best. I bet he is beyond excited about this!!

Also, funny post about the amish playing volleyball.
I read a Jodi Picoult book about the amish once and it really made me want to understand their way of life better.

I'm so happy for Brady and for you. I sure wish my Sis and her family could have lived closer than Chicago to us when my kiddos were little. We would share kids in the summer though..one week with us, one with my Sis. One week of country life here..and one week of city life in Chi-town..then I would always get the same question every year.."why can't we live in the city?"...beats me.

So exciting!!! My sister lives 11 hours from me and I'd be giddy if they moved closer. So happy for all of you!!

That is GREAT!!!!! We have no cousins at all so I know how "boring" it can be for the kids. So happy for all of you. :)

My husband's family lives in MN. My kids love it when they come to visit. Good for you guys. There is nothing like playing with cousins when you are younger.

How cool! I loved having my cousins around when I was older and am sad the boys don't have the same.
