Reunited and It Feels So Good!

I had great plans of reminiscing about Eric and I's last 4 years here in Wisconsin.  October 12th marked 4 years of living in the cheese state.  But that didn't happen this week because I was busy with life and part of life means family...I got to spend some precious time with some of my precious family.  If you have read my blog for any amount of time you may have realized that I am related to another blogger, Holly from A Pearl Among Diamonds.

Holly has a beautiful sister, Katrina, and they are very close.  Growing up I always wanted to be one of their sisters, too.  Since I never had a sister I always thought of them as my sisters.  We used to swim in their pool, do gymnastics together, and every year we would have a cousins weekend together, where all the cousins and moms would hang out.  I miss those days!  But we all grew up, got married, moved away, and had kids.  So now time to spend together comes few and far between.  But I still secretly wish I could be sisters with Holly and Katrina.  I don't think I will ever outgrow that childhood fantasy!

Holly, her hubby, Anthony, and their two girls, Lainey and Kyndra were passing through Milwaukee to get to Minnesota.  So they were able to stop and spend the night and stay part of this morning hanging out with us.  Molly was so bummed to go to school because she was having so much fun with Kyndra.  Hopefully we will meet up at Christmas so they can play again. 

Holly did way better than me at taking pictures, so you will have to make do with my couple pictures that I have.  Also, let me state for the record, I didn't shower or do any make-up for these pictures, however, Holly looks fabulous as always!

This was so fun to see the two of you in the same pic! That's neat that you got to spend so much time with Holly and her sister growing up too!

It's gonna be so special for your girls that they have each other to grow up with. I loved having two sisters and I'm thankful my girls have each other too!
