I don't about your family, but mine is pretty great. And big. And loud. But mostly great.
I have the best parents, three beautiful sisters, three awesome brothers, a handful of brothers- and sisters-in-law and lots of nephews and nieces (fifteen to be exact!!).
As I said: Big.
|The original clan. |
I'm the little girl with the dark blue dress and pearl necklace.
We all love to talk and be heard, we love to tease and 'outbid' each other,
but we're also there for each other whenever it's needed.
And we love each other fiercely.
You can only imagine how crazy things get when we're all together.
And ever since we've created a group chat for the family, it's like we're together all the time.
Which is sometimes a little annoying (imagine hearing message alerts every few seconds, and thinking something must be up, when it's ends up to be two of my siblings sending weird emoticons to each other..),
but it usually is pretty cool.
It's been such a great way to keep each other in the loop by sharing photos and little updates and prayer requests and everything in between.
This weekend was no exception with the sharing of all the things.
We've had crazy good weather lately here in Holland and of course we all wanted to let the others know how much we were enjoying it.
I felt bad for my sister in Canada who still is practically knee deep in snow and icy weather.
It will get better, Alice, it will, I promise :) !
I think we all did a pretty good job at making each other jealous:
My youngest sister was being spoiled at my parents, I shared a photo of a killer batch of cinnamon rolls as did my sister, my other sister lives near the beach and made us all jealous by dipping her toes in the water, my brother also lives near the beach and shared his family's beach photos.
And the rest had equally sunny and fun photo's to share (with exception of my poor Canadian sister).
Sharing is caring, right? :)
I know social media isn't always the greatest thing, but I know it is a great thing for my crazy, loud, big, awesome family.
I love them all!
