We had a really special Christmas this year, back East with the whole "Cronin Clan." It was especially meaningful because Kevin's parents are selling their quaint country farm house and the beautiful acreage surrounding it. While the "kids" didn't grow up their, it has become home for the whole family. Kevin's brother was married out on the vast rolling field of a lawn, and Kevin proposed to me in the living room packed with family on Christmas Day 2001. The place will always have a special place in hearts.
Our visits are always a bit bittersweet in their brevity, as we don't get to gather with the extended clan but every year or so, and we know that all the cousins will grow and life will be different the next time we all are together again. So, we do our best to savor the moments, and capture the memories. Here are some my favorite photos:
PS Yes, Miel and James joined the whole clan for the holiday!
