Cousin time

IMG_00261.jpg

This weekend I drove to Brentwood to spend some time with my cousin Stephanie. Our cousin Kevin and his husband Rene were having a baby shower on Saturday in Castro Valley to celebrate the birth of their twins this January!! It was the perfect reason to head to Steph's. I arrived Friday and we visited and took out her monster 14 foot Christmas tree. Her tree is close ten years old and several lights are out on it and she hates it! BUT, this is the LAST YEAR they will use it, so we tackled the beast.

I felt right at home with her boys Dustin and Lukas. They got me caught up to speed on their lives! These boys are so adorable! They showed off their school projects.

We worked most of the day on Saturday to get the monster Christmas tree decorated, and we did it!

After all the tree fun, we headed to Castro Valley for the baby shower to celebrate Rene and Kevin's new twins!! Their incredible surrogate attended the shower and it was so fun to meet her and thank her for helping Kevin and Rene create a family! We are so excited for January!!!
