In Which We Welcome a New Member of the Crazy Cousins
Can I just tell you how much I love my cousins? The ones from Mom's side of the family do something along these lines every time we get together. Even at Grandpa Madeira's funeral.
Cousin Dave got married during part of that time between the Overly Delayed Flight and the Urban-Traffic-Like Headcold. The wedding was beautiful and grace-filled (which was needed, given some of the extraneous family dynamics). The reception was One Great Party. The cousins were . . . crazy. My sister-in-law was inducted into this batch of cousins this way when she married my brother, so we had to do the same thing to Liz. Congratulations, you two!
(If anybody noticed that the dress I'm wearing looks familiar--sorry. But thank you for reading my blog this long.)
The other exciting event during this time was that my Mom turned the same age as my Dad on New Year's Day. They look pretty great, huh?
