My sisters flew into town to hang out with Dad this week...so on Wednesday, they all trekked to our house. Mom, Dad, my two sisters, brother, sis-in-law...and my aunt and uncle met them at my house.
We celebrated Dad's birthday with some cake...
|Happy 77th Dad!|
Visited, told stories, laughed....
|Me and my SIL, Penny. She is laughing her way through breast cancer (and beating it like a boss).|
|Mom, Dad, and Me|
Aunt Bobby and Uncle Jerry brought Dad a 9 foot cotton sack. Daddy used to pick cotton, and he said as a kid he could carry a 12 foot sack! They would pick cotton and fill up these HUGE sacks. Crazy!
I haven't seen my sisters since our wedding (almost 3 years ago) and it was about 1.5 years since I had seen Aunt Bobby. It was FABULOUS to all be together again.
My siblings are "half siblings" as we are all only related by my dad (he had 4 marriages...and a kid in each one!), but we share so many common threads and memories. It is fun to get together.
|Brother (Roy), me, Dad, Paula, Aunt Bobby, and Christie|
They are all much closer in age, so they are a bit closer to one another....I'm the bratty kid sister that came along when they were teens and adults! ha!
|Dad with his kids- oldest to youngest.|
But we love each other just the same.
|The whole family!|
I am so blessed by my family!
