Was one of the things we celebrated over the holidays! Tad is my oldest son, 45, who lives with us and as I've mentioned, has Down's Syndrome. Even though his birthday is 3 days after Christmas, he always wants "the whole gang" as he calls us, to get together so off to a local restaurant we went ~ all 25 of us!! Here he is with 9 of the grandkids ~ the oldest, Nick, wasn't there yet!
I had to include this picture (even thought it's grainy) because it appears that a couple of the kids are praying while Tad blew out his candles!! We're a very spiritual group, you know!!
And this picture was cute to me for two reasons ~ because the grandpeople decorated themselves with the tissue paper from Tad's gifts (creative bunch that they are ~ they decorated great-granddaughter, Blakleigh as well!) and because Tad was so happy to be there in the midst of all these kids. As they get older, he enjoys them a lot more and all the little kids love their Uncle Tad a lot.
Here we are back at the house ~ Tad, Sonny, Miki (Ted's wife), Seattle son - Chris, Mama, Ted, and Korinna, Sonny's daughter ~ don't know where the rest were at that moment. I love this picture because, again, Tad was just so happy ~ he had a great holiday season with his family ~ and that means a lot this mother!
I got a little hooking time in today on Hannah's fish and all in all, it has been a pretty quiet weekend. Good thing, because we have a busy week ahead of us! Ta ta for now ~
