We Are Family

Thanks, you all, for your fun comments on the grievous mess in my sewing room! It's nice to know I am not the only one....

I've been offline and gone for the last 4 days, attending a reunion with my three siblings and our spouses, kids, and so far, one grandchild. My sister did an AMAZING job housing us and feeding us. We all had laugh hangovers every morning...I fell asleep (being one of the earlier ones to turn in at night) listening to the sounds of waves of mirth rising up the stairs from the living room.

We siblings are the ones seated...our mom has been gone for over thirty years, and our dad moved on from our family when we were young children, so we four have stuck together tightly through all these decades.
God has showered me with blessings!!! And may your family receive those same blessings of friendship, unconditional love, and flat out hilarity, too....

Now, to go catch up on my blogging pals!.....

Wonderful photo and experience - thanks for sharing. At the present time I am lobbying for a get together of all six of my offspring with spouses and children. Oh My. YIKES! but what fun it will be. It's amazing when famiies that were a bit broken still get together and laugh.

P.S. I haven't managed to get more than five of them at one time together in almost 20 years!!

Great to meet the guys! It's a fabulous family portrait. (Hoping for a similar clan picture from our end just after Christmas.)

Is that your husband standing behind you, Allie? You and your sister look much alike. It's nice to see you all (except Max) together.

Looks like you had a great time.
"Laugh hangovers" is a wonderful description of making good memories!
