What have 100 eyes, likes to mashup in a big bunch and say CHEESE?
A big fat family reunion photo shoot.
You know you're getting old when you stoop to tie your shoes and wonder what else you can do while you're still down there.
Families are like fudge .. mostly sweet with a few nuts.
“I’m here to talk about our family, but you know what they say, 'If you can't say something nice...' so, thank you all for coming!"
When your kids grandparents tell you to go easy on the kids like they were easy on you -it's not wisdom, age or experience. It's senility.
What do you call it when you have to run around with one foot in a sack, a spoon with an egg in your hand, and an apple in your mouth? A family reunion relay race.
My family is like trail mix. You got your raisins, dates and a variety of nuts.
The reason grandchildren and grandparents get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
The real reason grandparents like to stop to admire the flowers, gaze at the sky, and chat with the neighbors while taking a walk is not because they are sweet, kind and love nature. It's because if they didn't stop now and then they would run out of breath trying to keep up with their grandchildren.
I overheard my father say to my mother... "I like YOUR mother-in-law better than I like mine.”
Grandparents can do amazing tricks their children cannot do. They can make their teeth disappear. They can make things look ten times bigger than they are. They can tell you things about your parents no one else knows. They can read your mind and tell you just what you are thinking before you go and do something really stupid.
There goes another apple falling from the family tree.
My parents finally confessed that I was adopted. They said, "But the adoption didn't work out, They brought you back."
FAMILY REUNION QUOTES
Where would we be if it weren't for family?
Like eagles we fly, glide and soar
Like whales we swim the vast ocean floor
When we've swum further than we have before
Family pulls us safely back to shore
Where's the best place to be when you skin your knee?In grandma's lap
or grandpa's knee.
There is no place else I'd rather be
than dangling from my family tree.
Having family over for dinner this weekend? This is the ideal time of year to start planning your next family reunion. Swap photos, recipes, make a memory booklet, collect poems about family, plan a talent show, start writing and videoing your family history documentary.
