Random Photo Friday - Where's Waldo edition

Last December, there was a period of about a day and a half when Eric, Heather, and I were in the same town with all my siblings, nieces, nephews, and parents. So, naturally, we all put on our red and black and  white and gray Sunday clothes, and tromped down to Southern Utah University to get our pictures taken while sitting on snow-covered rocks.

We've had family pictures in the past (many many times), but this time around for some reason, it feels a little different to me. It's a bigger treat this time around to look at this group of people--a huge group, honestly, and realize that every single one of them holds a significant piece of my heart within them. That's not a small thing, you know?

And now, just for fun, here's a little walk down the memory lane of the Bob & Barbara Corry Family:

And then, as a reminder . . .

Six kids, six spouses, and twenty-two grandchildren (only twenty-one shown here--the picture was outdated before we were even able to get prints made up.)

Love the trip through the ages. That was an amazing photo shoot. Everyone was good natured, responsive and attentive. Afterwards Spencer told me that was my Christmas present. When I asked him what he meant, he said he smiled in every photo and that was his Christmas present to me. So if that was the criteria, I got a lot of Christmas love that day.
