My family

Discussion in 'People' started by greyflash, Apr 2, 2007.

  1. I have had a lot of you ask about my family but have never posted a picture of all of them. Here are two snapshots of my entire family, these are not meant to be great pictures but rather to document the fact that we were all together at the same time. They are spread all over the US so it is not often that we are all together as a family anymore. All of my kids are now married and raising families of their own.

    Mom, dad and kids:

    Just the kids:

    Such a beautiful family! I know you must be so proud.
     
  3. Other than the shirt you are wearing in the first photo, these are beatiful pics of your family! :biggrin:
     
  4. Beautiful pictures and more importantly, beautiful family. You are truly blessed.

    Thanks for sharing, Gordon.
     
  5. Thanks Leigh. Just FYI, David (who lives in Alabama) is in the last row to the left of the image. He is the youngest of my children.

    I couldn't agree more about the shirt, what was I thinking? I of all people should know better. Thanks for your comments.

    I do feel blessed Peter, thanks for saying so.

    You have a beautiful family! I didn't realize though that you have 11 children....my goodness there must be a lot of family stories to tell at your reunions.
     
  8. What terrific photos, Gordon! Now, about that shirt....

    You've got a wonderful family - a lot of happy smiles there :biggrin:
     
  9. Beautiful family Gordon!

    It's kind of funny how many of these folks I recognize.:smile: Heck.....that first one is just great regardless of what you were going for. Despite the less than ideal BG you even made the second one work with great positioning and everyone actually having a pleasing expression, looking in the same direction etc....

    It's a talent getting group shots like this. I know I sure as heck can't do it.

    Lovely family Gordon. I bet you guys had a blast together.
     
  12. That's awesome!! You have a beautiful family!!
     
  13. Your counting ability is right on. Your 8 kids is right up there and gives you a great understanding of just how expensive it can be to have a family like mine. We used to spend more on orange juice than some people spent for their whole grocery bill. :smile:

    We do have fun when we get together Gloria. Thanks for your nice comment.

    Yes the shirt has got to go. :smile: Thanks for looking and for your comments.

    Thank you Eric.


    Thank you so much Dave, they are all good kids and contributing members of society. I love them dearly.

    Taking a group picture of our family is nearly impossible. I had to use my sternest voice to get their attention. They all think they are comedians. :biggrin:
     
  14. Gordon........... they don't get any better than this my friend............

    Fantastic stuff! Certainly made me smile.......... from ear to ear! :biggrin:

  15. There was many years of work that went into raising this crew but in retrospect it was worth it and now it is really paying dividends. Thanks Graeme.

    Super family shots, and in regards to your shirts, a littel Ps work would take care of that!

    Bravo!
