That’s my niece Nicole in the center, and her cousin (my nephew) Greg on the left and her brother (also my nephew) Chris on the right. (My niece Ellie is not in the shot because she wasn’t born yet!)
Aren’t they all so adorable?? The two boys look a little nervous, and Nicole is protecting them. I’m not sure what year that was taken, but they’re all grown up now. Nicole is 24 (studying nursing), Chris is 21 (finishing up school? political science? wants to work in a foreign country) and Greg is 20 (in school, serious musician). I am the aunt from hell, truth be told. I only see them once or twice a year. But they are wonderful, my loss! Karen, who comments here from time to time is the mother of Nicole and Chris.
