I have a new helper....
weep weep weep...
for all non Mom's and Grandmas that means sweep....

he was so proud of himself...
not sure how much he will like that broom later....
when he actually has the job of sweeping...

the brothers....
even though they were not all raised together...
they sure have a lot of the same tendencies...
one is not blood related...but was raised with them...


the brothers with their Uncle...
the last of my FIL's siblings...
little britches with his great uncle...and second cousin...
he kept everyone entertained...


my son and his great uncle...
family photos...

I got a few of these....
but after a while they get used to me and my camera...


my niece...little britches second cousin...
he loves her...and especially her necklace..

my beautiful daughter and my handsome son...


here's another one of those hand gestures...
no I'm not done yet...

my beautiful niece...
enjoying little britches...


my brother in law...and sister in law...

little britches with the guys...

my daughter...brother in law..
and my nephew I haven't seen since he was 6...
thank you all for all your comforting comments...
you really helped me get through this long week...
I can't wait to get caught up on what is going on with all of you..
it might take me a while but I will be by to visit...

I'm glad you got to re-connect with so much family, even though it was a sad occasion. It looks like having Little Britches there was good for everyone.

Great to see your family come together during this sad time.

you did a fantastic job of capturing your beautiful family, gestures and all. my favorites are the broom shots. people photos are not my thing and usually doy not come out this good. great job. my granddaughter when she was LB's age, preferred the dust buster over the broom. each time she came to visit, she ran the dust buster battery dead and washed all the dishes while standing in a chair, when she left i had to rewash the dishes and charge up the vac. fun times. she is 25 now

It is always great to see family & we always wonder why we hadn't done this sonner. Try & do this every year at some point. We are all busy but we need to make time for family. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day.

What beautiful pictures of a beautiful family. Romans 8:28.
Good came even through the pain and grief. One can sense the comfort you all experienced just being together.

You captured so many wonderful family pictures, real treasures.
You daughter and son are mighty good looking!

Thank you for sharing those precious moments. Though the reason for getting together was sad, it must have been wonderful to have everyone together.

I am so sorry about your loss Deb. I have been hard pressed to find computer time with little Adi around. Her favorite new past-time is sweeping too!
Nice looking family you have there, great to reconnect!
Hugs,
Cindy
