There we are, about half of the eventual 71 relatives who joined us for our annual family reunion on Saturday.
The four remaining House siblings...missing the 2 oldest boys, my Uncle Fred and my dear Daddy.
The youngest and oldest in attendance...Emery is 8 months old and Aunt Fredette is 87.
Of course, always plenty of food and fellowship! My sister Barb and her husband John (wake up, John-boy!) with cousin Gary.
Yes, I'm THAT one who captures lovely, flattering photos of people when they are eating...
Emery with his Great-Grandma Caralou...
One of my favorite cousins, beautiful Sabine, with her sweet husband Brian.
My cousin's 4-year-old grandson Jamie is one of Mama's buddies. But he was being a little ornery and refused to have his photo taken with her.
So I had to sneak up on him.
He's our own version of Opie Taylor.
Jamie adores Mama...and she him.
My cousins Denise and her sister Carrie (in blue), with Denise's daughter-in-law Hillary, who is due with her third child in July. Such beautiful smiles from all three!
More beautiful smiles! Barb with our cousin Lisa and cousin-in-law Cheryl. These three were being pretty goofy! Barb is definitely the instigator...or maybe it was Lisa..... Get the two of them together and it gets very silly quickly!
Lisa with her momma Wilma...
Barb and I call them "The Boys." John and Kim found a quiet bench away from the crazy family they married into to catch up on life.
That's me with Aunt Fredette...
...having fun at the...
...House-Stockberger Reunion 2017.
