Chris' Birthday-and family gathering (for the family)


Today is my son's birthday. We were happy to have several of the family here to celebrate.

My daughter, Tammy, has her birthday on Oct 1st- (3 years younger than Chris)  Since the birthdays were close together- several times during the childhood years I had  combined parties for them ...

I remember 2 of these times in particular...when they were 2 and 5...and then again at ages 9 and 12, (maybe!)   Lol-I do remember in that latter party I had a game that entailed tying balloons to the kids ankles and then all trying to break the balloons by stepping on them! Of course the one left standing with an unbroken balloon won a prize!

  Oh my!! Imagine a bunch of 12 year old boys against a bunch of 9 year old girls.  Total chaos it was....especially when the boys somehow got hold of some pins to pop the balloons!  :)


Anyway, I remembered that party today, as I had both these birthday 'kids' here together-and my other daughter, Tina.

(Not all of the family could be here.)

This party today was  subdued and small- and I got only a few pics. No one was in moods for pictures, apparently. I did get some of Chris, though, with his wife, Joy.

All of us who were here today:
