It's very hard to take a picture of eleven wiggly children.
My newest grandchild has been my unofficial grandchild for the past couple of years. She is AH, second on the back left. She is both cousin and sister to her new siblings. So left to right, back row- their ages are 11, 11, 9 9/10s, 9, 8, 6, front row left to right 3, 3, 2, 7 months and 3 1/2 months.
Tonight is the first time in years that I have been with them all at the same time. First thing on the agenda was photos. Next was pizza. Then there were birthday presents for two and Christmas presents (the ones that never got exchanged between cousins this past year). Last, there was gooey cake!
A whirlwind of activity can happen in three hours...take my word for it!
What a beautiful group, Steviewren. You must be enormously proud. Lovely.ReplyDelete
