Aren't we sisters and me!

This is the present my eldest sister gave me for Christmas last year. They are scrap booked blocks with our photos on them. My photo is a little different as I wasn't born when the photo of the other 4 girls was taken.

Top Row: Leanne (now aged 50), Julie (44)
Bottom Row: Marilyn (57) Janine (55) and Susan (52)

I am the baby and my Mum and Dad were probably hedging their bets on a boy. Tough luck, they got a fifth girl and spoiled me rotten. Ha!

Four of us live in the same town and the other 80kms away.

Here's a bit of family fact:

Mum & Dad (sadly he passed away in April 1989) had 5 girls who all married.
We had 10 children - Kirste, Jeremy, Heath, Melanie, Ben, Adam, Jane, Bianca, Kirby & Brianna.
They have had 14 children so far - Tayla, Josh, Blake, Jett, Rylee, Cash, Mitchell, Jed, Saige, Kobe, Sapphire, Brodi, Nathan, Kayden, Jake. No one is pregnant at the moment that I know of...Phew! Baby Cash is the youngest, born October 4th.

We all live in South Australia.

I love my family and can't wait for Christmas!

Cheers - Joolz :]
