Yes, I'm related to all these people! Growing up it was only this crazy on holidays.
When I was born, my oldest two brothers were already at The Air Force Academy and my oldest sister was sixteen. As I was growing up, I only remember my sister, Genie, and my two brothers, Mark and John, being around. Then I was alone all through high school.
Meals are always interesting when there are a lot of us around too. My Dad loves shrimp...ha..ha...see it sticking out of his mouth.
Now that we are all grown and have families of our own, it is seldom that we can all get together like this. I wish we all lived closer so that the cousins could know each other more, but hopefully they will carry on our large family gatherings as they get older too. Family is so wonderful!
