Hi Cuties, just got the first large family picture from Mia (my son's new partner). This is all the family bar Steve (my son in law married to Amy) who took the picture.

It was the best day ever and all the kids got on like a house on fire. Was so happy to be finally all together, what a birthday to remember. Love Chris

Back row: Archer and Byron (red heads are Mia's sons), my son Ben (bald head) placing hand on my hubby Trevor, another baldy!!!!

Second row: Ophelie, (Amy's elder daughter) my Mum Pat, girl next to Trevor is Havana (Mia's elder daughter) Jasana (Dana's elder daughter), then Mia and Ryke tall lad at back (Dana's son).

Third row: Chase, (Ben's 2nd son), me, Amarlee behind me (Mia's younger daughter) Aqualina (Dana's younger daughter) Amy my younger daughter, Dana (our elder daughter) holding Scooby their dog.

Front row: Cohen (Ben's youngest son) and Delphi with mouth open (Amy's younger daughter) and Cooper, (Ben's eldest son). Wow!! I did it.

Beautiful! I’m so happy you all could get together.🥰❤️
I don’t know when that will be here😧 Coronavirus is still a real threat. Just heard niece Sheila’s only son, DIL have it. DIL dad & grandpa both hospitalized. DIL g-ma has it but is home not as sick.
Thank you for sharing your family with us. I’m sure I won’t see mine for my birthday this year. May you always be as happy, always be together, as this day the pic was taken.

Ryke IS tall!!!

Thanks Toogie and I do hope that the virus will begin to settle down soon.
With regard to Ryke, I know he's going to be a big lad when he grows up. He towers over me and his Mum Dana who is in front of him. He's wearing men's clothing and wearing size 11 shoes! Big feet.
He started at McDonald's last night and his safety shoes looked as big as my father's used to and Dad only had size 10 shoes. He won't be 15 till February 2021. Love Chris

Chris my niece husband match his shoe size and his age from year 12 to 16! I think after that they stopped growing! A tall man, too. Grayson is 6 foot 4 or 5 inches but I’m not sure his 👞 size.

Hi Chris. We found on my grandmother's 50 year old pictures, the ones written on in soft lead pencil were still legible, while the inks had faded, sometimes to gone. Wouldn't you think the ink would be more permanent?!
