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.

Happy happy birthday my dear Joshua! I love your imagination, your ability to get into character. I love that you love Star Wars so very very much. I love that you’re a budding geek with already great taste. I love your smile. I love your hugs. I love you. I love you so much. I hope you have a great birthday!

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!

Meet the Muse: Bruce

Yesterday was this guy’s Birthday! Bruce and I have been good buddies from day one. We’ve had adventures, watched movies, and played vedio games together. I taught you what a drahon says, and plan on intriducing you to Lord of the Rings as soon as I can.

Bruce isn’t much of a hugger, but he draws great pictures, which cover my fridge. Bruce loves stories. He loves the outdoors. He’s really into ninjas right now. He also loves CiCis.

Bruce has been featured in many of my Texas Cousins Adventures. Our family wouldn’t be the same without him. I love you Bruster. Happy birthday!
