Our Clan on Mothers Day

I put together this little collage for Mothers Day to show all of her kids and grandkids, including kids by marriage, in one fell swoop. I thought I would post it here as well for those who might require introductions or who might have forgotten some of the characters of the Anvilcloud blog.

Y’all know Cuppa, Nikki Dee and Zach by now, so there’s no need to go on about them. But you may not know her parents, Eric and Thesha, at the top. Thesha is our oldest daughter, and it is to her house that we go four days a week to mind the little ones. We live in the same town and moved across province to be near her and Eric after I retired. Nikki Dee and Zach came along a few years later.

For Mothers Day 2011

Our other daughter, Althegal (to Cuppa’s right in the centre row), lives in Vancouver with Alycia (centre row left). Alycia and Althegal are happily married and taking post graduate studies at University of British Columbia. Because of how both of their names begin, we call them the A Team. We last visited with the A Team last August when they came east for a visit. Before that it was Christmas 2009. I’m not sure when we will get together again. We’ve been out to the coast twice, but we don’t have any significant travel plans for this year.

So that’s the whole clan. My saying is, “We’re a small family but a great family.”

Permit me to sneak in one more picture, this one of Cuppa and the kids, yesterday.

  1. I tried the collage thing a while back…Hahaaaa….Right!
    LOVE how you did this! It is seamless!
    Beautiful family Ac…Lots of love going on there!
    And yes, Fuzzy Friends asked Tons of nosey questions…but I guess they need to. Most come from abused backgrounds and they don’t want that to happen again, especially dogs used in DogFighting…horrible thing, that!
    Have a happy day!

  2. Looks like a wonderful little family, AC where a Quality certainly makes up for quantity. The collages were great and the one of CUppa and grandkids was beautiful and one to be treasured for sure.

    Very nice piece of blog work, and some great subjects to work with. I know your parents have passed on, but do you and Cuppa have any siblings? Don’t remember if I have heard you mention any.

  4. Mara says:

    Your collages always look so beautiful and effortless (mind you, with subjects like that, it does make it a lot easier). I will need to get that collage thing done some day. We’ve got a big family reunion coming up (49 out of the maximum 52 attending), so some nice collagey photos would be good.

    What a wonderful collage…and that last picture is priceless…I can definetly see the love that flows in your family. It warms my heart to know you have such a loving happy family. Thanks for sharing!

    You are a wonder, AC … you have a real knack for arranging those collages. Do you remember the wonderful ones that Pam (our dear blogger friend from Vermont who died of ALS) used to post?
    I loved the last picture too of Cuppa and the children.

  7. Hilary says:

    Nicely done. You do indeed have some great subjects there.

  8. Philip says:

    Lovely collage. Where are you?? You should no be allowed to hide. You seem like an affectionate, tight-knit group.

  9. Dimple says:

    Nice work on the collage, and thanks for the intro to the rest of your family!

    What a beautiful college but then such a beautiful family, you should be in this my friend. Somehow it just feels right to see those sweet faces again. Can’t believe how fast they are growing…..:-)Hugs
