Garibay Soup: Cousins

Wednesday, June 10, 2009


My blog has been put on the back burner with the refried beans lately. I've been spending lots of time with family. My cousin, Sydni, is up from Colorado visiting me and we've been have SO much fun! It's so amazing to see the evidence of genes in her. We are so much alike.... and the funny thing is, it's probably because we're both like her mom (my aunt).

I'm enjoying every given moment with her. At times it makes me sad that we don't live by each other.

I took her to a Shakespear play Much Ado About Nothing... and this picture I snuck of us before getting told NO PICTURES ALLOWED. She's helped me out so much with the kids, the house, my sanity. Her crafty side reminds me so much of myself, as does the things she gets frustrated at. She's such a sweet, sweet girl.

We took a trip to Yuba City where she got to spend time with her biological sister (my biological cousin) heck.... her sister, my cousin :) We both had so much fun visiting, laughing, and bonding. Here's a picture of all 3 of us girls.Jenna and I have become close over these past couple of years that she has found "us" her biological family. I know that we both consider eachother cousins.... we're family and I have grown to love her and appreciate her. She's a great friend that I can talk to you, I'm here when she's bothered or upset and listen to her. I thought that the cousin that was out there in the world somewhere would someday be a very close cousin of mine. I hope that we can continue our relationship all throughout our lives.

Sydni I am just now getting to know. She's always there, but I've never had the priveledge to get to know her and her amazing personality. She's the daughter of an aunt that is like a second mother to me. I love her mom so much, and at one point she played mom with me. I hate how she lives so far away and our kids can't grow up together. Even more than that, I just hate that we don't know each other's kids. So, this special time with Sydni was just what I think we both needed.

That is great. I love to see all of your "reconnection" stories. Your cousin seems like a sweetie. :)

I hope you keep enjoying your time with your cousin. Your post reminds me how much I miss my cousin who I have always been close with but life has kept us from seeing each other for quite awhile.
