Family tradition...

We had an 80th birthday get together for my Mother-in-law, Jean Shafer, yesterday. All of her children, and all of their spouses, and all of their children, and all of their spouses, and all of their children showed up for the party. With the little ones moving around, it was hard to get a count until they took the picture, but I came up with 44 people.

A couple of years ago we had a 60th wedding anniversary for my Mom and Dad, Myron and Phyllis Bell. About 62 of their offspring got together for that one.
After this July the count should be up to 70.

One of my favorite things at family get togethers is watching the terrified expressions on the faces of one of the grandchildrens' new boyfriend or girlfriend.

Being a member of this family isn't for the faint of heart.

But it is a lot of fun.
