Awesome pictures!! I bet it's been a long time since you were able to have a family portrait done. I'm so glad it worked out that they could all come home at the same time.

It would be awesome to get them here at Xmas!!!

Thanks, Kelly. We had so much fun. I miss them already. There's a chance that Beata and Rob might make it for Christmas some time, but I doubt Jill and her gang will be able to. We'll see.

You'd never know from your smile that you're in pain, Jer. It's true that children and grandchildren are the cure for anything. Well, short-term, anyway. :-) Great photos!

Oh, Jer! These are gorgeous. Agree with Suzanne. The kids were a balm for your pain, that's plain to see.

Thanks so much, Suz and Nancie. Indeed it's true. Even though I struggled the entire time they were here, it wasn't as bad as when I'm alone. I was distracted by being surrounded by loved ones. It was super. And they were incredibly kind the entire time.

The pictures are great. It was so much fun having them all home at the same time and getting together so much. Wish they could all makke it more often.

You are truly blessed in so many ways. It was so great that they could come home at the same time, and that you were able to get family pictures done.(they are wonderful) YOU have a gorgeous family, but more importantly they have huge, beautiful hearts.

Now that is one great-looking family. How did you get that tan, Jer? I've never seen you so dark.

Thanks, Jan and Cindy. It was truly one of the best weeks of my life. And I saw more of the extended family than usual, so that made it extra special for me.

Dave, I'm fair in the winter, but respond quickly to any sun. Add to that the exertion required to pretend I felt well. :)

Thanks for the compliment on my beautiful family.
