Monday family stuff
Boy, did we have loads of good food at the annual Redding reunion yesterday! And cake. Wait, I never got a photo of the dessert table. Horrors—failure!Trust me, there was quite the variety of homemade cakes and pies. I can report for sure that Pat’s Carrot Cake was delish! That was all I could manage, except for a wee sample of Debbie’s chocolate pie. Also delish!
Aunt Rebecca, widow of Uncle Chester, was the senior attendee.
Cuzn Pat was always so good to let me play in her jewelry box when I was a gangly pre-teen. I guess that prompted my love of bling at a young age. That’s Will’s wife caught mid-blink. Sorry, Von!
Rebecca’s son Tommy is there on the R. Susanne (where’s mama Nan?), with youngest attendee Autumn. And Lucy is in the orange (dtr of Tom and Cynthia). She didn’t want her photo taken and kept hiding when I pointed it toward her. I discovered she has to do a paper on genealogy and will be getting in touch with me! I am delighted to help.
Fred (Pat’s hubby), Lavon (wife of John), and their daughter Cynthia (mother of Lucy). Got that? We need name tags!
I missed photos of several folks who had to leave early. And just plum spent too much time talking and not taking enough photos, and that is a bad mistake at a gathering like this.
Next time, right?
