Saturday Snapshot -- Family

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post on Alyce's blog At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.
The only photo I should be thinking about is an English Comp essay with marks from my red pen since I have to finish grading lots of essays for Finals Week, but I pulled out an old family photo we used on our Christmas letter in 2008. Four years doesn't seem that long, but when I look at my family, it's a long time.
They've all changed so much. We've all changed so much, especially those two on the end -- the kitten and Tucker.
I don't have a decent photo of the whole family from this fall since the oldest two have been at college, but here's one from this summer before Spencer left for college in Florida. But, I'm not in the pic cause I was taking it. (I really hate photos of myself lately anyway!)

Oh, and here's the kitten all grown up. He never takes a bad photo.

Ooh, the kitten looks suspicious of the goings-on.

Love the family photos...I think the last time I had all my kids together was in 1997!

I get them hit and miss...and mostly the groups are now grandchildren.

Here's a nod to my Christmases Past in MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

Four years does make a huge difference, especially with kids! Lovely family photos!

Celebration of Christmas or birthdays is so important for love sustenance.
Very nice photo of your family.

Those are both great photos-your little boys are no longer boys-they are young men-your daughter is becoming a woman and the kitty is a sweet looking cat. I always go to France after Thanksgiving and really enjoy it-there are not as many tourists and Paris is beautifully decorated for Christmas-that said I will take Paris any month of the year-however as I told my husband I walked around humming Christmas carols the entire time-I am a hummer by nature but caught myself this time. It really puts you in the Christmas spirit-this year I went a week later than usual and it was very fortutous that I did as I was in the ER 12 days before I left and I would not have gone a week earlier given the health situation. As long as you do not mind a little cold it is okay-one year I went and they were in such a cold spell that I was frozen the entire time-even though I had my down filled parka-this year I purchased boots as my feet got cold-they were fine one day in Paris-cold but not excessive the next day and then frozen in Lyon so I bought boots. I spent some good money on them-but they are warm, beyond comfortable and even fashionable to boot-the first two requirements were non negotiable. I have even continued to wear them since I got home so it was a purchase well spent. See you tomorrow.
