What a wonderful opportunity to spend family time together, you all look as though you're having a wonderful time; hope you have many more. I just spend 4 days in NZ so I could spend a little time with my big brothers which we all enjoyed and because it so rarely happens (spread around the globe) it was also a very precious time. Hugs Lynne in Tuross
How wonderful for you Lynne, it's always great to catch up with our loved ones. Love Chris
Lovely pictures! Grands have grown so much. I love the tee shirt saying "Sisters". That says it all! I am glad you had time with your sister!
Thanks Suzanna, yes it's a cute T-shirt but they've spelled confidant wrong!! And yes, the kids are all growing up so fast. I'm having lunch with her, Charles and Mum tomorrow before they head off back down south. Love Chris
Looks like a wonderful time. It is wonderful that you could all get together. I know how hard it is to get everyone together. I am hoping that at least two of my daughters will make it home for Christmas. I have on that lives New York and one that lives in Georgia. Both are about 14 hours away so we don't get to see each other often. Thank goodness for Skype!
Wow, that's a long way to travel for your girls. It's nearly 20 hours for me if I was to drive to Jewls place. Skype is great for communicating. Love Chris
Wow they have grown so much! What a delight to spend time with your sister, I had a couple hours with mine and it was too busy to have a conversation. Thanks for sharing!
That's so true Chris, there were conversations going on all over the table. There were 13 of us there, so you can imagine the cacophony of voices! Love Chris
Great photos. Your Grands are growing fast. Hugs.
Thanks Shirley, yes, they are all growing up so tall too. The two elder ones are already taller than me! Love Chris
Wonderful pictures, Chris!! Must have been fun being together (even if a few couldn't make it). I think you and your sister have similar smiles!! The kids look so happy being together!! Hugs to you and yours!!!
Thanks Laura, I look more like my Dad, big round face and build. Jewls is slighter more like Mum.
My girls - Dana (dark) one is very much like me as a young girl and Amy is a real Pennifold, she even has a cousin who resembles her. Love Chris
What a great group. Lots of smiling faces. I am glad you got to see your sister. I know how you feel trying to get ALL together. The larger my family gets, the harder it is to find a time where everybody can gather.
You hit the nail on the head Angie. It is difficult, but one day soon I hope to get them all in the same frame!!! Love Chris
She's lovely Chris and your grands are growing up so very quickly! What a bunch of adorable faces.
Thanks Jerrilyn, Ben's 3 boys are cute too, but as I mentioned we don't get to see them very often. Love Chris
Nice to see your sis Chris. Thanks for sharing them all with us.
Thanks Miss Lillian, it's great to catch up with her every now and then, but as she lives over 1800Km away it's difficult. Thankfully we both have mobile phones that we can text each other with. Love Chris
As you say, you are not alike facially but perhaps you are alike in other ways. Wish I had siblings.
Hi Sarah, no we both have totally different outlooks on life, etc. Love Chris
What a nice looking bunch! So glad you were able to get that many together. We have a difficult time as well between school and all the extra-curricular activities they are booked almost solid! Hugs. Nan
Thanks Nan, it's almost impossible and of course I only get to see my sister once in a blue moon!!!! Love Chris
