FEAT ACCOMPLISHED

For the last couple of years I've been wanting a family picture with all of us in it. To my great frustration, however, someone was always missing at picture taking time. Yesterday we finally made it. Tennessee granddaughter was home for a visit, and New Jersey son and family came to visit and take her out to lunch. Even other granddaughter's husband who was supposed to be working that day had a change in schedule and was able to join us. We met for lunch at Applebee's, and a friendly diner waiting to be seated, captured the moment.

That is a really nice picture! Why does CHRISTIANA look like the tallest one!!! She has grown so much in the last couple of years! Wow.
Beautiful family - you must be very proud.

I was wondering that myself (about Christiana), and why I look so small.

Hey - Miss Sandy!
The poll on my blog is on the right hand side bar - and a little bit down on the page - you have to scroll down, and if your computer screen is narrow - you may have to scroll to the right to see it. It has a heading over it that says "a poll". I hope you can find it!

Hey Sandy -
The word verification is supposed to prevent spam - sometimes there are computers that leave comments - but they cannot enter these characters - only humans can. It just cuts down on some junk that you can get. I have seen one very disturbing comment on a friend's blog even with this in place - but it is one way to slow it down.

oh yes, it does get harder and harder to keep the family together, doesn't it? i made an appointment at sears for tuesday and the girl said, are these for the 4th of july? and i said no, these are our christmas pictures. she looked weird at me, so i said, i need to have all of us for our christmas cards and so i have to do it early!! lol
anyway, i've done pretty good so far - there are 7 of us and my oldest is 21... i have a family picture of everyone each year - i am just waiting for the moment we have to break tradition :(
