feeling at home

You know how there are some people who make you feel at home
no matter where you are?
That describes my aunt and my cousins
I haven't really seen them for quite some time
probably close to 10 years
and yet I have spent lots of time with them in the past couple months
and I feel like I have been around them the whole time

Last night we celebrated Marques's birthday who just turned 2
So much fun spending time with them

My cousins, Aunt Kris and some of the boys
Kelsi, Katie, Kim, Me, Abby, and Kris
Madden, Hewitt and Marques

Hewitt and Marques playing on the stairs

Harper gives their dog Crosby a million kisses when we are there
these are FULL ON kisses
It's hard to capture, but this is just the beginning of the kiss
I know it sounds and looks gross
its actually really cute

Really, what's not to love about us girls (especially me, am I right?). Anyways, I'm super impressed with that picture. I don't look nearly as worked as I felt, or did you photoshop that sucker? Tell Howard, Leroy, and Homer hello for me. :)
