Throwback Thursday: Fun with Cousins

I am very close in age to two of my cousins.  They are sisters.  One was born a few months before me; the other, about a year after me.  In looking through old photos recently, I came across photos of the three of us.  With their permission, I'm posting some today.


Katie is sitting up; I'm not that advanced yet.  From the table and chairs in the background, I know this photo was taken at my house.  Notice the dog blanket.  Is it any wonder that I've always loved dogs? 



I assume the matching coats were a gift from our grandma.

Christmas at Grandma's house. (The photos were developed later.)

We never got into mischief (cough, cough).

at least Becky's happy about Katie's 4th birthday
Will her wish come true?
Looks like a slumber party!
I'm not sure what we had in the buckets.
Maybe rock treasures?  Whatever it was, it sure made us happy.
I've always enjoyed the time I've been able to spend with Katie and Becky.  I couldn't ask for kinder cousins!  I wish we lived closer.

Do you have any special memories of time spent with cousins?

  1. Great photos! Looks like you girls had lots of fun together.
    None of our cousins lived in town. Luckily, though, we were the ones that lived near our grandparents (on my dad's side). We played with them whenever they came to town, and our grandparents oftentimes took one of us when they went to visit my cousins.
    My mom is Canadian, so we only got to see her mom once a year. I've only met her brother's kids once, back when I was 10 or so.

  2. It's wonderful that you have this special family connection. As an only child from a very small family myself I have no such childhood memories however I married into a large family with many siblings and cousins and my own children have many, many such childhood connections which I'm so happy about.

  4. I love all the old photos and memories! I've got a lot of those mis-dated photos, too! I do love our digital age! You three look like you had lots of fun together - maybe just a tiny bit of mischief! Until I was 11 I was surrounded by cousins, I was the oldest of us all but it never mattered! I am still very close to a few of them and like you sure wish they lived closer.

  5. The photos are real treasures, but the connection you obviously have with your cousins is priceless.

  6. Wow, what a lovely post! I have photos like this - and similar memories - of my cousin and me. We are six months apart in age and grew up very close, like you and yours. Think I'll go give her a call...
