Posting pictures today instead of words. My girls adored their cousins. Although we do not live close, and only saw each other a couple of times a year, they sure did have fun when they were together. It only seemed fitting to pass down some of my girls favorite things to their cousins.

Ella was so proud to show me what a perfect fit her new pajamas were and Isabella hardly ever takes off her hat. Both made by Aunt Susan for her girls, both passed down with lots of love.

It makes my heart happy that my nieces are so proud to have these things of my girls. I can’t help but smile at Ella dancing around the room, just like her cousin did, spinning her American Girl Doll with not a care in the world.

  1. Saying “thank you” doesn’t seem like enough for such a precious gift. We talk about you, Tom and the girls daily. Their spirit will live on in all of us everyday. Ella ADORED Anna and we will forever be grateful for their relationship. I am so thankful for all of the amazing pictures we have of them together in August. I treasure them dearly. We can totally thank Anna for Ella taking a shower these days, instead of a bath. As soon as we moved in our new house, Ella wanted to take a shower so she could be like Anna. That is just one small example of how she looked up to her older cousin. We will take great care of Anna’s pjs. Susan and Tom- Thank you so much for being an inspiration to us, and also to so many other people. We are all better people because of you… We are always here for you and we love you all so much.


  2. Susan, I am just in awe of your amazing spirit…….I one day hope to met this wonderful man Tom… You are both such beautiful beautiful people… and I mean that with all my heart. I have been so touched reading this blog each day…. Cry everyday because I know Susan Dieter and she was a crier…(in a good way) and has a heart of gold. Love to you…
