From Mark to Megan

Most of you already know I come from a large family, but maybe you haven't all seen my large family. We had a family reunion this weekend (our first official one). Here are the stats on our family. 2 parents + 11 kids + 11 spouses + 57 grandkids + 6 grandkid spouses (well one is engaged) + 8 great grandkids = 104 people. 104 people??!! Could my parents have guessed at that when it was just the two of them starting their tiny little life together? Crazy.

Anyway, not quite everyone was able to be at the reunion -- a couple grandkids (mostly married ones) were away, so 12 were missing, but 3 friends came along so there were 95 of us in all.

I am so sad I didn't take loads of pictures -- but there was too much going on. Still, I will post one now and I will post more fun reunion pics when I have stolen a few more from siblings.

When we were little, instead of "Mark. Set. Go!" We would say, "Mark . . . Tony, Kathy, Amy, John, Rob, Chris, Aaron, Shannon, Nancy, Megan. Set. Go!" And that was us, in order. And here we are now. The original crew.

How awesome!!! I can just picture your family pedigree, hung in the great halls of our father's mansion as one of the noble families to visit this mortal experience. Love to you all!

PS - Yes, yes, yes - I know, all of our pedigrees/family trees will intertwine (one great tree - won't that be awesome to look at?) - but you know what I mean ;).

Awesome! I had no idea about your large family. What an amazing legacy for your parents.

So, I struggle with my three little boys. What are some fun stories that your sisters and brothers would do to get into trouble?

Nancy it is so fun to see your family. it is amazing how often your family name comes up in conversations of years past now that we are back. Anybody who went to our high school knew of at least one of your siblings.
