My Family, As Requested by Sue

Sue asked me to itemize the family in order, and GMarie seconded that request.  So, in age order, this is my family:

Mike, married 2 years to Ashleigh, proud parents to new baby girl Madeline.  I babysat for their cats for 2 months while they were honeymooning and finding a place to live.

Second son: Patrick. He is probably my lifelong bachelor.  One dog, Thatcher, an Australian Cattle Dog (who has never been here, since they live in Arizona).

(Pictured, left to right: Mark, Dan, Ryan, Jeff, Patrick)

Third, Dan. No wife, no kids, probably not happening soon.

Next, Shannon, the beautiful October bride. Husband, Chris.  Dog Natasha, the Ovcharka. Beautiful dog with a nasty disposition who hates everyone except Shannon. Kids in a few years or so.



Jeffrey is fifth. Dog Tank, the German Shepherd.  Current girlfriend owns Adventure Beagle, AKA Lily and an orange cat, Moe.

Next is Cass, my dark haired beauty.  She travels with Bebop, her Christmas present from Jeffrey.  Boyfriends come and go; none has been smart enough to keep her.

Seventh is Kellie. She and her boyfriend of 18 months are coming to visit next month and tour NYC and DC (he's never been North).

Then come my little boys: Ryan (who took a year off from college to find himself, and instead found himself amidst a house fire; I don't know how we'd have survived it without him), and Mark (high school junior, football player).

Thanks for letting me brag about my wonderful, brilliant, gorgeous family!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, you have one gorgeous family, Marjie!!! The boys are handsome dudes and those girls, oh my, great legs too, lol...

It's no surprise that the pets are family members too. Thor would have been pleased?

Congrats on the new granddaughter too, Marion is just finishing her new sweater set:)

Thanks for sharing, Marjie, LOVE this post!!!

That should help keep them straight. They sure have changed since I first started reading about them.

Love seeing this post. I've watched your two youngest grow over up the past 8 years. You most certainly have a beautiful and loving family... you should be very proud!

Your new granddaughter is BEAUTIFUL!

Wow, I've been reading a long time and was never able to put them all in order. I guess people have the same problem with my crowd of siblings LOL

No news to you, but you've got a beautiful family, Marjie
