Throwback Thursday #20

First off, I'd like to say CONGRATULATIONS to Audrey and her Hubby over at Pinks and Blues. They're expecting their fourth child in June! Exciting news!!!

I haven't been very diligent with my Throwback Thursday posts, while the Pinks and Blues Girls always have the greatest photos and stories on their blog. Here is my latest installment:

Since it's almost Christmas, I'll try to find old Christmas photos to post. I actually stole this one from my youngest cousin's Facebook photo album! Here we are being goofy on Christmas. I remember when Christmas was filled with wonder and magic for us kids. We'd all get together at my aunt's house and have this HUGE Christmas dinner and then sing carols. We'd go to Midnight Mass and we'd return to my aunt's house where we'd wait for Santa to arrive with all our presents. We'd all sleep over in one house. Imagine 30+ people sleeping in the same house? All of us kids would sleep on the floor in our sleeping bags and we'd have so much fun! The men would play poker and the women would be busy in the kitchen the entire time. I miss those days when we all lived close to each other.

Oh, the matching visors? I think it was a gift from one of my aunts. Back in the 80's , we (the cousins) always received matching EVERYTHING! You knew we were related by just looking at our matching t-shirts (or in this case, visors)!

The above photo is of my grandparents' 50th Wedding Anniversary. My grandfather passed away a few years ago and around Christmas is when I miss him the most. Christmas just hasn't been the same without him.

This last photo is totally unrelated to Christmas, but the movie John Q was on the other night and Baby Bro made a brief appearance in the first ten minutes of the movie as the pitcher at Denzel Washington's son's baseball game in the movie. I may have posted this pic already, but I thought it was cute.

It's so nice that you and your cousins were able to grow up so close like that! It looks like you guys had such a blast together all the time. And I love how proud you are of your baby bro! :)

Happy TT!
