From these roots came my family. The picture below was taken 4 years ago at our family reunion - just my immediate family - my parents, my siblings, our children, and their children. Everyone was there except one - the newest bride who had to be in another wedding that week-end. There are 11 more great-grandchildren since that event (19 total), and one more on the way -
The most recent additions to the family are, of course, the twins. I took them and the big girls to see Maizie this week. I wrote about Maizie last year at this time when she celebrated her 100th birthday. She'll be 101 on May 23. I love to take them to the assisted living facility during lunch time. Everyone in the cafeteria gets to excited when we walk in the door. Seeing cute little children just makes their day. The picture is not great, but Maizie was thrilled to be able to hold them in her lap for a few minutes.
I took this last picture because the little watermelon jammies are getting too small and I wanted to have a picture of them in them. They were four months old on Wednesday. I truthfully cannot tell you which one is crying in which picture.
