Crazy Cousins

Last week, we were fortunate to be able to share Thanksgiving with my parents, siblings, and nieces and nephews in Wisconsin. It is usually my brother's family that travels in from Wisconsin to Illinois where the rest of us live. Circumstances and good travel weather put this holiday in reverse. My brother and sister-in-law put on a terrific feast, and all we had to do was bring vegetables and drive. Not a bad deal!

Including my two boys, there are six cousins on my side of our family. We do our best to get photos of them all together, because it can be challenging. First there is geography: my brother's family lived in New Hampshire before moving to Wisconsin, and we lived in Colorado and Michigan before moving back to Illinois. Then there are the "activity schedules" of six busy kids (two college freshmen, three high school freshmen and a sixth-grader). When they are all in the same location, we take a picture!

in 2013, grabbing their tech was maybe not silly, but accurate :)
