"You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you.
You have to go to them sometimes."

My Mom came to stay with us in March.
Soon after lots and lots of family came to visit.
We have such a warm and loving family that are tons of fun.

Four of the six Lovelies in this picture are my cousins.
My Mom is in the middle with the hat on.
My sister, who you probably recognize, is on the right-hand side.
My cousin are Julie on the right in blue, Becky on the left next to my Mom,
Mindy in the red and white and Diana in the back , in the middle.
Aren't they pretty?
(We are missing Lainey and Rachel,
Two other Lovelies in this clan)

They are my Mom's sister's girls,
My Aunt Joyce's.
She is my wonderful aunt that I was named after.
She was a wonderful, Sparkley Fun-Girl!
And, her girls take after her.

My Mom, Sister & I have a tradition.
Every time that they come to see me,
we visit some little shops in my area.

One of the shops is
The Rusty Rabbit
There have been many, many visits.
So, while the girls were here
we decide to go shopping,
and of course, we took them to The Rusty Rabbit.
It is in a very old building with lots of character.
And, lots of Pretties!

We had a wonderful time shopping.
And, such an amazing visit with our cousins.
So many memories with lots of laughter and tears.

They are a Blessing & I love
each one of them
sooooo much!
