Just Because...

I obviously don't brag about how amazing my family is enough...but really they are! I'm so beyond blessed to have such a wonderful family.  I love that we are so close knit, it's nice always knowing that they are there when I need them!!

Today, in particular, I'm super proud of my three younger cousins, Austin (Munchkin), Alli, and Tyler, if for no other reason, than that they are truly amazing people!!

When Austin was first born I started calling him Munchkin...I honestly couldn't tell you why (maybe because I'm small and he was smaller than me..who knows)!  But now, as he ends his Junior year of high school he is definitely not a "munchkin".  I know everyone says it all the time, but I truly am so, so, very proud of the young man he has become! He is a good big brother for Tyler to look up to and one that will always be there to protect his little sister (even if he picks on her ALL the time, he is the only one allowed to do that)!! Here he is at prom with his girlfriend Holly....How handsome is he!!!

Allison is ending in her first year in middle school...to me that just seems unreal!  There are so many qualities that I admire in her.  She has a beautiful soul that shines from the inside out.  She is so creative and has such a wild imagination that only fuels her creativity! I'm constantly amazed at what all she can do.  She is also blessed with great musical talent, here she is at her latest piano concert!

Tyler, there aren't enough words to describe the ole T-Bone.  The once self-proclaimed "Burper King" has become one of the sweetest, most genuine people you will ever meet!  He has a crazy, fun side and can always bring out the 'kid' in anyone.  When we get together for family functions the phrase "Gotta love that T-Bone" is said constantly, because he honestly has the funniest things to say about anything and everything.  He is also one of the most athletic ones of our family, I am in awe of his skills on the basketball court and especially on the baseball field!

Now that I live in Waco, I'm further away from them and I miss getting to attend all of their activities.  But if you couldn't tell, I'm just so proud of the awesome people they are becoming! Love you all so much!!

Told you I don't brag on my family enough......  :)
