Family gathering

This weekend my whole family got together to celebrate a bunch of birthdays. We were way overdue as we've had a terrible time finding a night that worked. We did pretty well this night and were only missing 3 family members.

Here's the whole clan after enjoying supper.
 

My Dad and step-mom.  He's feeling better, but not 100% yet.  He goes to the cardiologist on Tuesday.
 

Alaina and my niece Chelsea playing games after supper.
 
 

Great Grandpa with Alaina.  She is his only great grandchild and he loves spending time with her!
We had a nice evening, with good food and lots of laughter!

I'm afraid if we got that many of my family together in a restaurant we'd be thrown out for making too much noise! Even when it's just us sisters we can't get through a meal without something happening that sends us into fits of I-can't-catch-my-breath laughter!

How wonderful for your dad to be with all of you and to be able to enjoy Alaina.

We can tell that there is a special bond between g-granddad and Alaina. I love her hair!

Well it's a wonder y'all could climb over all the piles of snow and even get to the same place. I'm so glad you did. Alaina's HAIR!!! That child looks like something out of a fairy tale. And your dad looks good, all things considered. I know everyone there will feel better when the weather warms up a bit and some of that snow melts. Meanwhile ... it's all good! xoxo
