Today's topic is our choice.
I am having uploading photos to look the way they should - Click here to see the photo
This is showing Grandma and Grandpa (my parents) with all their grandchildren. One more was born after the death of my dad. Mom has the twins - Jeffrey and Andrew, Matthew is sitting on David's knee and my dad has Heather and Adam.
The children of my two siblings are all ready for bed after a busy Christmas Day. Christmases were lots of fun when the children were little as the children were all close in age. David and Adam are three days a part. Matthew is a couple of years younger. Heather, Jeffrey and Andrew were all born in the same year.
The photo was taken at my brother's home at Sauble Beach. We would come for the day and then head back to Owen Sound sometimes in very snowy conditions.
Now the children are all grown up. Even their youngest grandchild is now in her late teens. Christmases are not quite the same when you don't have children in the house.
This year, my sister will be celebrating Christmas with a little one in the house as she has her first grandchild. He is too little to know what is going on but it will be a special one for the family.
