I come from a big extended family, I have something like 38 cousins on my mom’s side and 13 more on my dad’s side. When we get together for family events, there are a LOT of us {at the last reunion I think the count was 115 direct descendants on my mom’s side}. That was a few years ago, so I’m not even sure what the count is now. {Kelsey’s dad, Uncle Robert would know, and he probably can even tell you everyone in age order!}

I love the connections I’ve made with my extended family. I don’t get to see them very often, but I’m so grateful for social media and being able to stay in contact online with most of them. It’s so fun to see them grow up and have families of their own.

I was so excited that I got to take some updated pictures of my cousin Kelsey, and her husband Jason, while I was in Utah. They were brave and got up early to meet me in the mountains, even though it was only 38 degrees that morning. Jason told me he wasn’t good at pictures and that he always made funny faces, but I assured him that I would tell him exactly what to do and that he didn’t need to worry about it. {and he did FANTASTIC as you can see!}

I LOVE how their picture turned out, the fall colors are so pretty and the light was just gorgeous that morning. It was totally worth getting up in the freezing cold weather to get these beautiful shots!! You two are adorable!!
