Yesterday was my big family reunion and when I say big I mean BIG!
This is only a little bit over half of the family! I love having a big family and when we all get together it is a good time. There were about 97 people in total at this family reunion. Every year I take a group picture of each of the “families” (the photo above is all of my Grandpa’s “family” which is his kids and grandkids and great grandkids). Then I take pictures of my Grandpa’s brother’s families as well. I have created a scrapbook with these photos each year and listed the names. I’m not going to lie, some people aren’t labeled because I don’t even know who they are. That is on my to-do list though! 🙂 This year, I just asked the group after the photo was taken so I could complete the page! It’s so crazy to see how the families have grown and I’m so happy to be able to have these memories. Scrapbooks are such a treasure and a keepsake! I am also working on a “Family Tree” album which consists of family pictures and stories. It has been amazing to get the stories about my family – hearing where they came from and how they lived. It is so amazing and I can’t wait to pass it along to my children (future children….this is not my pregnancy announcement. 🙂 )
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend too!!! Happy Monday and Happy Scrapbookin’!
