Family BBQ



What a fun day we all had yesterday. There were lots of pictures taken but one I really enjoyed was of all of my children. We got out one of my favorite pictures that was taken back in 2002….



Then we put the kids in the same positions yesterday, about 10 years later….



Aww.. yes, they do grow up!!!

Here are a couple other favorites.. they were family shots. The only one missing was my daughter-in-law Lolot. She had to work and we were really sorry that she was not with us….
 



I never take it for granted that I will have the opportunity to have all my kids gathered together in one place at the same time. I’ve spent years when my children were literally spread all over the world and the chance for us to be together was simply not possible. So these moments are truly a blessing and something I thank the Lord for. Here were a few more pics from our day…

    2. Thank you : )

      We have Remembrance Day in November, usually the second Sunday as it is closest to 11 November. The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month marks the signing of the Armistice, on 11th November 1918, to signal the end of World War One. We now include other wars, not just WW1. It is good to remember those who died for us.

  10. Crystal,
    I am glad to see you had a great vacation and that all of your kids were able to be home for Memorial Day. I have been following your blog for a long time too and I noticed that one of your grandsons was missing in the pictures. I hope all is well!
