How does the song go?..."There are faces I remember..all my life.." Well this weekend I took many pictures to remember these faces forever. Not that I could really forget them since I grew up with a few of them. But I feel bad because when I see these I also see ones I didn't get..like my brother Phil, some of the other nieces and nephews and their kiddos. It's hard to capture everything when trying to participate in the activities also! (I guess that's why they hire professional photographers at weddings!) But more than anything it's the faces that I wish were here...the ones in Ohio, Georgia, North Carolina and other spots on the map. And the ones embedded in our memory and on our hearts that I hope are looking down from heaven and smiling on this family get together. Their faces are never forgotten either. So here's the final snipets of faces that I remembered this weekend.
Oops! I guess this wasn't the first face we wanted to see! But the lamb was yummy!
Jack looks very contemplative doesn't he? He's probably thinking: 1) How in the heck did I end up in this crazy family..2) What should I eat first..3) Which one of the group wanted an adjustment..or finally 4) Why did I buy my wife a new camera for Christmas...Yep, I'm betting on #4.
My brother Greg and his wife Deidra. So cute!
My Mom and her cousin George. The only true Greeks left in our family because they actually can speak the language. Such a shame. Maybe I need that Rosetta Stone language tape to get me in the club!
Rick..My Brudda from the same Mudda...even though he lives in Wisconsin he still must love DA Bears!
My brother Greg and his family: Deidra his wife, Vicki his daughter and her daughters Megan, Rachael, and Meadow (twins) and then just for good measure my Mommo!
Mom with her great-granddaughter Megan.
My Sister's daughter Amy with her daughter Ella.
It was a bit chilly out so gathering around the fire to chat was a must. And chatting is something my family could get a gold medal for if it was an Olympic sport!
Where to find Mom? Deep in conversation as always!
Amy and her funny older Sister Katie!
Ok, one more time without the sillies getting in the way!
What did I say about Jack being the biggest kid of all? Need I say more?
