A week like no other …

My two sisters and my brother came for a visit a couple weeks ago.  For five days we visited, laughed, ate and played Yahtzee.

Betty is 82 and Martha is 79.  Maybe I’m biased, but I think they look wonderful for their age!

Hubby took a picture of the four of us right after Jimmy got off his plane  …

and a few days later, he took some at home …

but then he told us to look at each other so we would looked more “connected” — and looking at each other made us laugh.  So it did make for a good picture — smart Hubby!

We had a great time.  If you have siblings who are far flung, I definitely recommend a reunion like this.  It was a wonderful experience.

Betty, Jean, Me, Martha and Jimmy — Easter, 1948

The only thing that would have made it better is if our sister Jean, who passed away a few years ago, could have been there too. But she was there in our hearts and in many of our memories —  many of her were about her making us laugh.

    Oh, I was hoping you’d do a post about that week. I love the pictures and especially that you included that one from 1948. I know this was a week that meant a lot to you, and I’m sure it was special to your siblings, too.

    Your post is heartwarming. Seems the older we become, the more we treasure times with loved ones. Wonder why it takes us so long to get our priorities straight? So happy you had this time with your siblings.

  8. What a sweet picture! So you were the baby of the family–by quite a bit it seems! You weren’t spoiled, were you? lol

  9. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave
    it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit
    crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
