Cute Cousins -- Now and Then!

Grace - 12 years old and Maddy 9-1/2 years old

Besides getting to spend a whole week with so many wonderful friends, our time in Hilton Head was special because the two youngest cousins in the family were together -- yes, I mean the fabulous duo --
Grace and Maddy! 

Those two have a very special and fun friendship.  Grace really looked out for Maddy and kept her involved in all the activities.  Plus, those two can play a mean game of War (cards, that is), and it was so nice to have someone besides me for Maddy to duel it out over! 

Maddy at 8 years old and Grace -- 11 years old.
  Larry (the bichon) was 1 year old.

Over the years, the girls have had many fun times together.  Distance (we live in Nebraska and they live in Florida) keeps us from being together as much as we would like.  The girls are sweet and funny and silly and maybe a little diabolical together!!  Can't wait for more cousin fun!

Pirate Night -- Maddy at 4 years old and Grace 7 years old.

I searched and searched for this last photo and just found it!  Look how adorable they were!  
This was taken the first summer that Maddy was home.
