Family Reunions

My family isn't big enough to have reunions. My dad's side consists of 8 people who are divided into three camps that aren't speaking to each other. My mom's side might be, but we'd have to go back several generations just to find enough people to get a group discount.

It sounds like you come from a pretty large family, tho.

Granny is one of 9 siblings. Most of those siblings had kids. Some of those siblings (not Granny) had many kids. So yeah, there's a lot of folks on the Lowry side of things.

The Shorts - not a lot of relatives there. Or at least, not a lot who wish to come together for reunions.

Shellhaas was a big family, but generationally now it's very dilute. Most of the folks are third and fourth cousins. Probably even some far enough away to marry. ;-)

Mom and her brothers get together a few times a year - not as often as we'd originally planned when Gramma and Grandpa passed away, but still enough to know what's going on in their lives. We haven't had to resort to "reunions" yet, however. Perhaps when my cousins and I are our parents age. (Most of my generation in the Andersons haven't had kids yet. Actually, only one of my cousins on mom's side has any kids. The rest of us are either single or married w/pets. :-)
