Another Family Gathering

My middle brother always hosts a family gathering for we siblings and families. Missing were my sister and her family who live 600km away in another province, a nephew who lives 200km away and a niece who had to work.  Everyone else managed to attend.  We all take appetizers and desserts and there is tons of delicious food to eat and plenty to drink.
 The hosts, my middle brother Geoff and sister-in-law Mary.  They have 3 sons.
 Son #1, my nephew Kyle and his wife Sarah and their 2 daughters Chantelle and Lydia.
Lydia, my great niece, 7 months old.

 Great niece Chantelle.
 Son #2 my nephew Ryan and his girlfriend Jess.
 Son #3 my nephew Chad and his girlfriend Amanda.
 My oldest brother Chris and his wife Bev.
 My youngest brother Mark and his wife Mary.
 Their son, my nephew, Connar and his girlfriend Cora
 Mark and daughter and my neice Heather.
 Garry and I.
Garry and I and my aunt Anne.  She hates it when I call her aunt as she is only 6 years older than me.  She is great great aunt to Chantelle and Lydia.  That title makes her feel really old,lol!!!
We had a great time visiting with every one and we look forward to this gathering every year.


  1. Lovely family photos. So great to get you all together!!

    1. Thank you. Yes, it is nice to get together and find out what every one has been up to, especially the nieces and nephews.

  2. How wonderful to have such a big family and to all get together. Neither of our families are small but we rarely see anybody these days which is a shame especially as nobody seems to get married any more so we tend to only meet up at funerals. xx

    1. Yes, I do have a big family but, like you, we don't see each other very often. My middle brother, the host, is the one that makes the effort at Christmas every year to get everyone together. It helps that he has the biggest house as well,lol!!

  3. What a lovely family! Distance traveling here in the winter is tough. Our oldest son comes from another province (yours) and I always worry about him driving that long busy road.

    God bless.

    1. Thank you Jackie. Yes, I agree about the travelling in winter. Our oldest son lives in Vernon B.C. and my sister is in Kelowna B.C. Travelling in the mountains in the winter is not something I want either of them doing.
