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.
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.
