And Then There Were Four

This Friday our family welcomed another member to our family.  My sister-in-law gave birth to their second daughter.  So today I want to talk to my newest niece.

Well, here you are.  You’re a Brown.

As my first duty as your aunt I want to give you a little guide to this wonderfully wacky family you’ve been born into.

First off, let me introduce myself.  I’m your Aunt Sabine. It’s pronounced Sa-bean-a. Don’t worry.  I have friends that still pronounce it wrong.  You can just call me Aunt Beana.

Second, we have some strange traditions.  Like at Easter, we throw eggs at Granny Vera’s barn.  You were born into this so you may not think this is strange.  I married into this family so I know.  I’m just warning you in case you tell kids at school one day, you know you may get funny looks.  Why do we throw eggs at the barn you might be asking yourself?  Because it’s fun.  That’s why.

Your Papa Brown will tell you some tall tales.  Always run things by Grandma to verify.

Speaking of Grandma, if you ever get into trouble with her, here’s a tip…she loves chocolate.  Preferably dark. This may come in handy one day.

Your big sister will always protect you.  Whether you need it or not.  If you fall down, just let her help you up.   If you don’t she will do so against you will.

Your cousin Kenzie is a wild child.  She will come up with some bad ideas.  Run things by your oldest cousin Hudson first.  He will be the voice of reason.  If he falls through and you happen to be at Grandma and Papa’s house, I refer you to my earlier tip about Grandma and dark chocolate.

And lastly, here’s the very first group picture of the four cousins.  Remember this. They were there at the beginning.  They were there before anything happened, they will be there when everything does.

Welcome to the family, baby girl.  You’re in for a wonderful ride.
