L to R: Stephen, Katrina, Chance

My brother, sister and I all had babies around the same time in 1997. Chance, my brother Doug's son, was born in September.  Stephen  was born in October, and two week's later, in November, Carla had her third child, Katrina.

Being 12 years younger than Doug and 10 years younger than Carla, I never dreamed I would have a child that would grow up with their children.  I loved it!!

These three sweeties will be Freshmen in High School in the new school year!

And that is hard on this Momma/Aunt heart!

I'm playing with Jenny at Alphabe-Thursday!

As the oldest grandchild, my cousins were much younger than me. I even babysat many of them. Now that we are all older, age isn't such a big deal. Cute picture!

I miss the closeness we had as kids with the cousins. We don't see each other much now as we are in different cities.
Great photo and memories.

Just popping by from Alphabe-Thursday.
