I am so happy to have you my first of the Vincent Nieces and Nephews. You are the first. You made me an aunt, on our side. You are bright, happy, loving, creative! I love talking stories with you. I love your drawings. I love your every expanding imagination. I can’t wait to see you continue to grow into an amazing young woman. I love you, Julie! Happy Birthday.

Meet The Muse: Remi

RemiHappy happy birthday to my dear Remi-roo. You are the spunkiest, most hot and cold child I have ever met, and I love you dearly for it. You are solidly your own little person, but game for so many things. You love being the villain. You insisted on Darth Vader pajamas. You give the best hugs, and always want to know where Ol’ Sport is. You love Uncle Jason and laugh when he teases you, then take extra steps to protect that cookie of yours. You are wonderful and I love you so much!

Meet the Muse: Finley

_MG_7248Happiest of Birthdays to the second red-head in the family! Finley-bear, I love you so much. I love to hold you, bribe you with carbs, and watch you follow after your sisters. I adore the look of constant worry on your face. It’s the cutest. I’m so glad to have you in our family. LOVE YOU!

Meet the Muse: Constance

Constance has been one of my muses from early on. In fact, it is her muddy fingers that often grace the start of one of my Texas Cousins Adventure Stories.

I’ve been itching to write one of these again, so keep an eye out.

Constance, you are beautiful, smart, and have the heart of a mother. I love watching you with your baby sister, and any of the other babies in the family. I hope that you continue to use that gift to take care of the little ones around you. I miss you more than I can say, and am excited anytime I get to see you. I hope you have a wonderful year! Happy Birthday my dear dear Constance!

Happy happy birthday Shannon. I love you so much. You hardly know me, but you don’t hesitate to let me hold you and carry you around every time we get to be together. You are such a pretty little girl. I love your smile. I love to watch you run around exploring your world and taking in your huge family. I’m so so glad God blessed us with you. Happy birthday little one!

Meet the Muse: Jude

This little bundle of energy turns four today. Jude is one of my favorite little people of all time. He’s all boy, but he’s also super sweet, precise, and so funny.

I love having him in my Texas Cousins Adventures, but more than that, I love having him in my life. Our family is made better with Jude in it!
