Gatherin' of the Clan

Before I left that side of the world, three generations of Myers--now extended to Alexanders and Schreiners--gathered at Jana's in Richland, WA.   To have ALL of us together, with Randy (who flew in the reaaallly long route from Mongolia), was the first time in over 7 years.  Granted, we've multiplied a wee bit since then, so the dynamics of ALL have changed; but still, a major feat.  A Grand Time was had by all and so without further wordiness, here are the pictures!


We were gifted with music--selected and prepared in advance with lots of love for just this night...
Jana had prepared a complex Clemente sonatina

Hannah gifted Papa with "Carol of the Bells," one of his favorites

Elijah did a great job with "Silent Night"

We Christmas Tree'd...




 We played...hard...
Is Kelby wearing a necklace?










Wait!  Is that little Cindi Lou Who?
 We ate...a lot and all the time...
I think I know what Kelby's thinking--he'd love to get his hands on that grater! 


 We Walla Walla'd...



We gifted...









We mouth breathed together....
Papa watching "River Dance" with yet another generation :)  You know its love




Yep, we feasted on love & laughter and of course great food...


Ho, ho, ho!


Indeed.

...giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be 
partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.
Colossians 1:12

What a fun gathering that was for your family. You can see joy written on everyone's faces (most of the time):) Family is what it is all about, isn't it? The pic of Jana and Nikki with the quilted piece is just lovely. Who made it?
