The party's over!

It was a GREAT reunion!

We counted 32 in all.

Tina and her precious family (in the picture on the sidebar) could NOT come after all. Their house sold and they had to find another one - all in a few days time - and we were left telling her mother and brother all weekend - WE MISS TINA! WE MISS TINA!
Anyway, instead of nine children six years and under we had six. Talk about fun.

I took lots of pictures. Sam and Will took the 'official' ones - but here are just a few of mine - the first being a picture of a picture...
Here is the first generation of the J. Earl White family. Warren and Margaret (my mother) are the two middle in the second row. They are the only ones living.
First row, from left: (my) Uncle Jim, Grandaddy Earl, Grandmother Ora, Aunt Lucille (the oldest child). Second row: Uncle Boyd, Uncle Warren, Mother, Uncle Harold...
Oldest generation at reunion, Earl and Ora White's daughter-in-law Helen, son Warren (married to Helen) (Tennessee), and my mother, Margaret (Texas).
First cousins (several didn't come) (from left): Jim (Tennessee), Nancy (Texas), David (Iowa), Leslie (New Mexico), and Margaret (Alabama)...
Second cousins (from left): Brandon (Texas), Kyle (Alabama) Teri (Wisconsin), Chris (Minnesota); Will and Laura (Texas), Meredith (Alabama), Cap (Texas), James (New Mexico), and Elizabeth (Texas)...
Third cousins (from left): Caroline and Andrew (Texas); Owen and Lily (Minnesota); David and Nathaniel (Wisconsin)...

We also took 'official' pictures of all the in-laws and out-laws - but for now I will just post those above. Plus these random ones....











This last one is Meredith with her new pal, Shiloh. They have a special bond.

Now I better get ready for church.

I'm so glad you had a good time. Now you can rest.

Love all the photo's here and on facebook. Also was so impressed at how your home offered a little bit of something for everyone -- food, games, pool, chatting, strolling down memory lane on the piano -- isn't it nice how that turned out? You probably weren't thinking of a big reunion when you bought the house, but my what a lovely place for one.

Caroline and Lily melted my heart, but Andrew stole it. Isn't he getting an attitude? So cute. Also loved the old photo of your mom and all her family.

Now go put your feet up and sip some lime-ade.

Wow, all great photos. My favourite is the one of Caroline and Lily (?) staring out the front door at the puppy dog. Too cute.

It looks like everyone enjoyed their visit -- I bet the pool was refreshing with all the heat!

Pride of a job well done for you... :) Enjoy a RELAXING week now, you hear??
