Ruby Tuesday - family Gathering

I

It is time again for Mary's excellent Ruby Tuesday. 

Today it is return a day in December 1975. It is the Christmas holiday break, and as the seven children were involved with college, high school, the military and such - going in all directions. 

The unique thing here is that this is one of the last times a photograph of all the kids together - plus a husband and the first two of sixteen grandchildren, too. (I am second from the left, with the longish 1970s hair)


Holidays are a great for families to be together if possible. This photograph shows that...See lots more RT at Mary's meme.

Lots of kids. I can imagine the noise that comes with the family gathering - sound that we fully appreciate only when it fades away.

Looks like we are about the same age. I was the youngest of two, though. Small families on both sides.

It's always great to bond with family. Get together like this is always full of fun and excitement. Your post makes me miss my family back home.

That's gorgeous!
